    4 HUGE floor speakers...no more

    well this year at college i basically parted together a party system

    1 Set of BSR floor speakers, they have a 15, 6.5, two or 3 3" speakers and some tweeters

    1 set of Onkyo Fusion AV floor speakers, its a 12" sub and some other stuff

    a Kenwood VR-305 receiver and a Dayton 120 sub combo

    i asked B&W for a chat session a while back but he was busy so i figuered i ask the whole forum

    i am looking to get just as loud, with just as "full" (i have 0 background in HT) sound that i am getting from these beastly speakers but out of something that i can part together from parts express and put together myself.

    I am going to keep the receiver and dayton 120, but i cannot move around these speakers anymore, they barely fit in my car



    so my question is...on a somewhat restricted budget, (this just needs to get loud, get low, and sound pretty good doing it) can it be done?

    what would you guys suggest going with...i think for now ill just have the 2.1 setup?


    thanks for anyone who can help out a HT noob

    Heres my reccomendation, I haven't built these yet but I'm anxious to...

    Read the whole thread, the low end output of BIB's is supposed to be stunning, and one using a 12" coaxile Eminence driver would be outragous I think.

    5 Sheets of plywood, ~100 bucks in drivers and you've got yourself some party speakers.

    yeah but i think those are way to big...i want the big full rich sound of these older floor speakers but i want it in something that isnt nearly as big...sub bass is covered with my dayton 120 but i need some mids and highs

    Except for the fact they are my personal set and I run active and that means no passive crossover to use a receiver with...

    I don't think you want them.

    They are the Dayton Reference 7's, and a Morel MDT29, the Dayton References aren't the easiest to build crossovers for due to the breakup around 5k.

    I suppose 500 would get them to your door.

    There are smaller BIBs you know, specifically the one for the pioneer B20 full range on parts express...8 inch full range driver. Lacks a bit on anything above 12k ish but you can always add a piezo for a couple dollars to help that...personally I think it would sound just fine without a helper tweeter if you just want it for parties...

    Still fairly large, but not to bad, corner placing will yield output down to the 30s/20s...so no real need for sub if you just listen to music
    http://www.zillaspeak.com/bib-pioneer.asp

    Looking at around 50ish for the speakers, and up to 100 bucks or more in wood if you go with Birch, surely under 100 for MDF

    Im running a set of floor loaded BIBs and I love them, they are only three inch speakers but easily go down to around 60hz and blend well with a subwoofer, imagine the 8, it would be insane...

    Plus a ton more I never added, lol. If you are not on the list and you had a pleasant transaction with me, PM me!!!
