The speaker project I built - 3 Way Classic
I have been running my system (ST-120 amp) with some older 2 way Infinity book shelf speakers till I did this 3W speaker build. The sound was good till now… Now the sound is amazing. These speakers were made for this amp and the two pair up perfectly! I spent a lot of time pondering what speakers to build and I feel great about the choice I made. These speakers do it all and well. Any music I run (country, Hard Rock, Speed Metal, Jazz, Classic, Trance/Techo, Rap.. you name it) sounds better than ever.
I was looking for a nice pair of full sounding speakers to pair up to my tube amp. Something that could reach low on bass… High in treble… with some some solid mid range… Speaking of the midrange, the MCA12RC in the sealed compartment is amazing. It is like a little stand alone full range driver parked between the low of the woffer and the high of the tweeter.
I built using maple ply... Troels builds with hardwoods... Some debate on using hardwood VS MDF for speakers. These 8" woofers kick some bass!
Anyway, these speakers really paired up well with the amp. This is a pretty good DIY project... But worth the work. These SEAS drivers from Norway are nice!
