I ran across this project in the latest parts express catalog, got interested.:yumyum: They look pretty cool, and supposedly sound pretty good.

They would probly cost around 300$ to build though.

They are different looking, not a real big fan of the design though.

I still like my new project better... :)

I'm not a huge fan of those either, but I'm sure that they'll sound pretty good.

I'm not a big fan of that tweeter. But I love the DA-175's. There are several projects being done by guys on the PE board using that driver. Do a search on the Tech Talk board and you'll be able to come up with a more affordable project using the DA-175.
