I would like to build my own speakers and think I will go with a Nebula design Patrick suggested by Ken Perkins. Here is the link. Might have to have a Yahoo account to view. http://briefcase.yahoo.com/bc/rcavic...dir=/PL18_XT25 Will these sound as good as say... the new Polk LSi line, Paridigm Mini monitors, or PSB's bookshelf speakers. All ones I was thinking about buying until my layoff. Now that I have a job I need to conserve cash and building can be very rewarding. Have built a few pro audio systems and subs but never audiophile speakers. I would like to have something that sounds very exceptional but doesn't cost a fortune. I am going to listen to the new Polks soon as they arrive at a local dealer but know they are out of my budget. I plan to build 5 to go all the way around. Let me know and thanks.
