Alright im just diy my speakers for my yamaha receiver, thanks again joetama.

First up pre built crossovers. 5 of these. 4 for surrounds and 1 for center.

tweeters. gonna use tang bands. 5 of these 4 for surround and 1 for center

gonna use 2 5 1/4 for center channel. goldwood, friend bought them sound mad good. wire them to 8 ohms

gonna keep everything matching with 6 1/2 goldwood. 4 of these

5 of these

1 of these for center channel

4 of these for surrounds.

and possibly 1 of these for 2 8" subs. it says 70w but it has 4 terminals for 2 speakers. does that mean it is 70wx2? and can ths be bridged? noob with those kind of amps

total without the amp comes to around 190 shipped?
does that sound good?

Please leave a comment or make a suggestion if needed.

Looks pretty good to me, those terminals look kind of ******.

The QTS of those goldwoods (both the 5 inch and 6 inch) is way too high for a vented alignment. I would definately go sealed if you are set on those woofers....

Everything else doesn't look bad, the plate amp does 70 watts for ONE channel, those terminals that you see are high level inputs, like an LOC for car audio applications if you will...

i was only thinking cause it looked like it had a left and right highlevel input and then the output terminals also had left and right. idk maybe i was looking at it wrong.

so what do you think would be the optimal sealed enclosure for them then?
im a noob at box building.

For the 6.5s a 1 cubic foot enclosure would yield a QTC of 1.0 and an F3 (or where it rolls off) of 53hz. You can go a bit smaller and stuff if you'd like...

The 5 1/4s you can do .5 cubic feet a piece, so 1 for both with an F3 of around 64hz.

Experiment with stuffing for both....
