I've been looking for a near field speaker for use in my room. THe Kit81 appealed to me, but Adire discontinued the near field version. Luckly, they still have the manual and parts lists for the speaker kit and the tech guy as nice enough to send it to me. I don't quite know what brand of parts to get though, could someone help me? Here is the list. I don't want to go over 300 for the total price of the compontents (excluding wood, screws, glue, etc). 2.4 uF 250VDC polypropylene capacitor 5.6 uF 250VDC polypropylene capacitor 4.3 uF 250VDC polypropylene capacitor 11 uF 250VDC polypropylene capacitor 51 uF 250VDC polypropylene capacitor 0.36 mH 16 GA perfect lay air core coil 0.47 mH 16 GA perfect lay air core coil 0.82 mH 16 GA perfect lay air core coil 1.3 mH 16 GA perfect lay air core coil 1.6 ohm 10W sandcast resistor 12 ohm 10W sandcast resistor 3 ohm 10W sandcast resistor AV8 8” video shielded midwoofer TM025F1 video shielded tweeter SBP two-terminal circular input cup 14GA/2C 14GA twin conductor cable 0.25” female FAST-ON connector 21cm long wire tie wrap Small T-nut/socket cap screw set Large T-nut/socket cap screw set Wire for use in building the crossover? Suggestions for brands and places to buy these components? Also, should I just assemble the crossovers on some radio shack perf board? If you can't tell, this will the the first DIY speaker job I've ever done. Last question, has anyone ever experimented with replacing the AV8 woofer in this kit with the Koda 8 inch woofer? Obviously, I'm not electrical engineer, but the Koda seems like a better woofer. Naturally, this would take some midification of the crossovers, I'm just curious. Thanks!
