    Tower speaker project.

    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?

    Re: Tower speaker project.

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

    something like this



    although im not sure if it can be done with mdf.



    A couple of hunters are out in the woods when one of them falls to the ground. He doesn't seem to be breathing, his eyes are rolled back in his head. The other guy whips out his cell phone and calls the emergency services. He gasps to the operator: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator, in a calm soothing voice says: Just take it easy. I can help. First, let's make sure he's dead? There is a silence, then a shot is heard. The guy's voice comes back on the line. He says: "OK, now what?"

    Re: Tower speaker project.

    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.
