Description

When following this build plan, the end result should give you speakers that will have the following approximate specifications:

Drive Units:

  • Tweeter: Peerless XT25SC90-04 Ring Radiator Tweeter
  • Woofer: Silver Flute W14RC25-04 5.5″ Woofer Wool Cone 4 Ohm

Enclosure Description:

  • Bass Reflex box system

Frequency Response:

  • -3dB at 53Hz and ±3dB up to 40000Hz on reference axis

Sensitivity:

  • Approximately 87dB

Impedance:

  • 6 Ohm

Recommended Amplifier Power:

  • 30 – 120W into 6 to 8 Ohms

Dimensions:

  • (W x H x D): 199 mm x 350 mm x 278 mm

For approximately $170 plus the cost of wood and a few other parts, you can build yourself a set of 2-way stand mount speakers that will blow everything else available off the shelf away. These speakers are as good with music as they will perform in a home theatre setup. Soundstage and imaging is excellent and the vocals are very neutral with a clear high end that is detailed and will not become fatiguing over time. Put them on solid speaker stands and they will give you a solid bass response that is not boomy and sounds just right.
