OK...I am slowly getting ready to make my leap into the DIY area. I have found a good Canadian website that sells a wide variety of loudspeaker products...www.mcbrideloudspeaker.com Now that I am looking at designing my new surround speakers I need a little help on what components to go with. I want to make a two-way ported or enclosed speaker that will follow in the footsteps of my beloved Paradigm Mini Monitors. I am used to bright sound and love the clear and crisp sound of paradigm. I have Monitor 7v2s for mains, but I am not to worried about timbre matching simply because I know I will be building more speakers to replace them. So, like I said, I need to make a 2way speaker. I would like to use a 5.5 - 8" woofer. And a 1" dome tweeter. I was looking at Audax and Pioneer Titanium domes, or Sammi Aluminum domes. For woofer, I was looking at an Audax 8" carbon fiber cone woofer. This is just the start of this new venture for me. But am looking at this being the first of many MANY speakers I build. Please, any help and assistance is overwhelmingly appreciated. Ryan Peddle ------------------ Oops, I dropped my eardrums. Could you pick them up for me.
