These are crappy quick snapshots of them in their current state.

Pay no mind to the state of the dorm room, were still rearranging it and changing crap up.

This setup just plain murders the low end, sometimes it is just a pain in the *** cause everying rattles around. It sounds very "real" and sounds just plain good to me atleast, I'm realllllly pleased for building these things for under 500 bucks, just insane. *I think its under 500 bucks, never formally added it all up*

As far as I know, there aren't many audio nuts around here, and the ones that I know I'm trying to get them over here to give me their opinion on them. Everyones opinion so far is that they are awsome, but other than these the best thing they have heard is a Bose radio. Very good topend also, just all aroudn quality sound, does movies very well too.

They are a hair under 3 cubes, double braces per tower, 1" polyfill along the interior, 40hz tune, and dip down stupidly low, just crazy for no sub.

Like any good dorm setup, it's held together with inline adapters and jumper cables :D

I'm diggin' the plywood vibes ;)

Aww hell yes, tis the way we roll for the dorm setups (I've got it easily accessable to four different source units, so the mess of cable and jumpers is a must). :yumyum:

Its where custom fabrication is king, no need to make it pretty, but more carpet or some sort of covering is in the works for the ugly *** underbed storage things that we had to do something with.

Lol not very :laugh: I have about 4- 4 layer pieces glued together out of 5, then those 5 need to be glued together. Then I can cut the hole for the sub and paint/veneer (can't decide on that since veneer can be $$$ ). Oh and I'm still looking for some aluminum furniture legs that are about 4-5" tall :crap:

If you know how to build them they are extremely sturdy and will hold up to ALOT.

These ain't goin anywhere.

I didn't get a complaint for about a month...that was for playing "Blood of Cu Chulainn" way too loud on St. Patty's Day :D

The idiots down the hall would play their gangsta rap, I needed power to overcome that :)

One thing I didn't like in the dorm...wasn't much of a soundstage possible, hehe.

Nope, no 3way setup, needed a new crossover and more amps for a 3way. :crying:

Morel MDT29's for the tweets. They are what I found that would dip low enough for me.

Do you have any mid eq'ed out then? Or is it not an issue?

Yes, it is an issue, and need to actually buy a rack eq, but I am using the EQ thorugh my computer right now.

The DEQ2496 is a **** good EQ if you are looking for something simular to the gear you already have.

The "graphic" parametric function is totally awesome....
