These will be going into my room as computer speakers. I have an old school Fisher amp that gives out a decent 100 watts x2 channels.

Speaker woofers:
1" LPG FS25 tweeter
8" Dayton Reference woofer
4" Goldwood GW-4028s woofer

Simply put:
The LPGs are *******. Very soft, brisk, airy, delicate.
The Dayton Refs: These are just phenomenal woofers. People absolutely swear by them on eca, diymobileaudio, ca.com, etc... By far the best 8" I've heard. "The Reference Series can outperform drivers that cost several times the price" -partsexpress.com. There have been several people that have verified this statement.
The Goldwood. They aight.




The crossovers I'm using are just begging to be, well........better?

Currently on my way to Home Depot to look into some finishes. I've been recommended Formica? I'm also looking into some vinyl. Maybe a metal finish?

Recommendations anyone?

I'd say go with the Formica, or stain the wood dark to give it that high class appeal.

something like this

What kind of tool did you use to make those holes so that the speakers will mount in flush?

I'm guessing a router.

[@sephiroth619] did you use a jigsaw to make the actual hole?

BTW the enclosures are looking very nice.

No. It was actually my very first time using a router. That and the fact that I did the holes freehand.
