    I'm going to build the Dayton Budgets for my surrounds to go with the Dayton IIIs. I went looking for a parts list for Wayne's revised crossover and realized all the parts lists out on the web are for older crossovers.

    So, if anyone wants an updated parts list as of Sept 26, 2003, here it is for one speaker (discounts if building 4+ are not reflected in pricing):

    Part Number In Stock Description Qty. Price Ext. Price Remove
    004-8 Yes DAYTON 8 OHM 10W NON-INDUCTIVE .. $1.25 $3.75
    016-68 Yes 68 OHM 10W RESISTOR .. $0.39 $0.78
    027-320 Yes 1.0uF-100V NON-POLARIZED CAPACI.. $0.35 $0.35
    027-322 Yes 1.5uF-100V NON-POLARIZED CAPACI.. $0.35 $0.35
    027-328 Yes 3.3uF-100V NON-POLARIZED CAPACI.. $0.40 $0.40
    027-340 Yes 10uF-100V NON-POLARIZED CAPACIT.. $0.55 $0.55
    027-402 Yes DAYTON .22uF-250V POLYPROPYLENE.. $0.78 $0.78
    027-432 Yes DAYTON 15uF-250V POLYPROPYLENE .. $4.10 $4.10
    260-402 Yes PORT TUBE 1-1/2" x 4" FLARED .. $0.40 $0.40
    266-812 Yes .33mH 18 GA PERFECT LAYER INDUC.. $3.30 $3.30
    266-832 Yes 1.50mH 18 GA PERFECT LAYER INDU.. $5.80 $5.80
    266-842 Yes 4.00mH 18 GA PERFECT LAYER INDU.. $8.80 $8.80
    275-070 Yes DAYTON 1-1/8" SILK DOME TWEETER.. $15.50 $15.50
    295-300 Yes DAYTON 5-1/4" SHIELDED WOOFER .. $13.50 $13.50
    027-415 Yes DAYTON 2.2uF-250V POLYPROPYLENE.. $1.54 $1.54

    Subtotal: $59.90

    I included a 1.5" by 4" port that will need to be trimmed. I prefer these over routed ports for ease of build, and it's only 40 cents.

    Notes:
    1) Two 68 ohm resistors are used in place of the 34 ohm resisitor
    2) A 3.3 uF and 1 uF cap make up the 4.3 uF cap
    3) A 10 uF and 1.5 uF cap make up the 11.5 uF cap
    4) A 2.2 uF and 0.22 uF cap make up the 2.4 uF cap

    Also, as per reading online, I used metallized polypropylene capacitors in the high pass section, and plain old non-polarized in the low pass. This was to keep costs down, and repeated reviews (including the Dayton HT build on PE) stated that metallized caps were not necissary in the lowpass.

    Yup, just finished building them and getting the finish on last night. They sound great. The only thing I did not include that I forgot about because I already had was the eggcrate material for the inside. In my design I went through 2 sheets for 3 speakers.

    Thanks! This is WAY COOL. I just finished my sub the other day and was turning my attention to the other speakers. Actually I was seriously considering the same setup as you. The DIII's with DBPs for surrounds and rear. So how do you think these sound together? A pretty good match? Now if someone would just post up a PE parts list for Robert & Curt's Universal Dayton 3 way Center Channel I would be in DIY heaven.

    Thanks again,
    Marc

    Has PE come out with their shielded version of this softdome tweeter yet? I'm thinking about building a set of these D3's, Center, and DBP's for my parents. I know that the softdomes had been on the drawing board, and supposed to be released soon, but haven't checked on them in a while. News?

    I wasn't under the assumption that the tweeter needed shielding? It's such a small magnet.

    As for how my system sounds, everytime I listen to it I'm blown away. While I'm sure there are much better systems on the market (all be it higher priced) that you could build DIY (or retail), I cannot imaging myself ever needing anything better than this setup.

    I'm not sure how to explain it really. The HT's I've had/been in recently would be a Sony sat system, Bose, and a real nice JBL studio setup. My current setup blows them all away IMO. Unlike them, you actually feel like you're flying when listening to background music of a bird flying through the mountains. And the depth and feel of simple sounds like the "click" of the gears changing in the intro to 2F2F is purely amazing.

    "Robert & Curt's Universal Dayton 3 way Center Channel"

    Is there a website anywhere? A schematic? If so maybe I can put together a parts list for it together.

    Also, I ran some numbers and it looks like dual 5.25" daytons or dual 6.5" daytons output about 2db louder accross the board than the dayton 10". What this means is that if you can figure out how to quite them down by 2db, I beleive you could setup a 3 way with dual woofer using Wayne J's Lyra design: http://www.speakerbuilder.net/web_fi...a/lyramain.htm

    I cannot specify how well the sound would "mesh" with the 2 way fronts, but I would assume pretty well since it would be the same tweeter/woofers. I've just never used a Dayton midrange.
