Started a new project. I have been intrigued by GR Research kits for a while, and I wanted something smaller to replace my LS50's on my desk. Will be strictly nearfield listening. I would like to get back to a majority of DIY for the stuff on my desk top (Computer, speakers, amplifier). Would have spent less money if I ordered the prefab flat pack boxes, but I want to redo my subwoofer box as well so I ordered a new router, bought a sheet of MDF and got to work. Plus I just need the practice. \n\nThe parts for the speakers are on order. I opted for the higher quality caps. I am actually considering ordering like value budget cross over components from parts express so I can assemble a budget cross over and an expensive crossover to see if the difference is really that dramatic, I dunno though. The drivers are inexpensive enough that I may also just build a second set for work with the cheaper crossover. \n\nI have a DAC\/HPA that also acts as a preamp, that routes into my subwoofer. The subwoofer sends the highpass signal to my DIY ICE power stereo amp, then to the speakers. I will probably highpass them to 100hz. Sub is an 8inch Dayton with a Dayton amplifier. \n\nWill probably do DIY room treatment next. \n\nOn to the pictures.
