So what about the AMP6-B? Would that be easier? Actually my dad should be able to help He has built a computer from scratch when he was younger

Seems allright! I have no idea if they sound good, but they have reasonable SPL and prize I think.

Here you can see the specs for them, which you should use to calculate the volume of the speaker-enclosure by using WinISD Pro (free).

Goldwood GW-1058 10" Pro Woofer

But you also need 4 tweeters, remember that.

i hope you can help me
That GW-1058 is not the one I have recommended. That is this one. Please note there's huge differences: Goldwood GW-1058 10" Pro Woofer

EDIT: appearantly that version from partsexpress is not made anymore, and the other one has replaced it. I cannot recommend the new version.

Seems the only one that will give a satisfactory result is the HP-10W.

He must be around my age. I also built a ZX81 as a kit computer when I was about 13. Yes, the amp6b is a lot easier to make. But with patience, and a father overseeing the more difficult stages are done correctly, then I think you could also make an amp9b. Just remember, plan it out well in advance. Never rush anything.

I'm very happy with these drivers. I put them in a 1.5 cu.ft. (42L) ported cabs. In room response, I get strong bass down to 35 Hz. Outdoors, I'd expect the response to be more in line with what I modeled them for (F3 at 50Hz). The pic is wrong on that site. Parts Express has the correct pic for the driver.

Actually that's not entirely correct. The pic from partsexpress is correct only for the old version. The new is very different. Here's the specification pdf directly from goldwood sound

I'm still shocked over the output this bastard can deliver and how well it sounds! I can't wait for amp, speakers and piezos to be burned in to have another listen. This boominator is for my sister's camp and it's gonna play at her birthday tonight.
So how did it go?

From what I can see it's not as deep which would make the magnet to magnet construction impossible.
