    Well actually I modified a klipsch KG 4.2 to make a new speaker. I replaced the motor board and moved the horn between the driver and the PR. THe new speaker matches much better with my KG 5.2s, than my old 2.2v.

    My website has a picture of the speaker. This project was easier than I thought it would be. Its amazing the difference having a real center makes with movies. Plus I am able to high pass all speakers at 40hz now, this gave me nearly flat response in my room with no EQing the subs.

    Sorry if I sound alittle excited, but this was my first DIY venture in HT and it turned out great.
