I like your "i" idea. What about this... For the stand, make it out of a 6-7" diameter sona tube or PVC pipe. Seal the bottom with a wide base. On the top of the tube, build a baffle for a 6.5" midbass driver. place four 1/2" dowls, roughly 4-6" tall, on the outer edges of the the top of the pipe. Drop the superbowl on top so the dowls hold it above the midbass driver. The bowl will help with dispersion of the midbass.

Juspur, what a brilliant implementation!

I promise you, that's one of those ideas that everybody in this thread thought, 'Why didn't I think of that?'

Me too,

Poinz

Thank you, Poindexter

Lejaybo, do some googling regarding xovers - here's a link to an online crossover calculator (look at the impedances at the crossover point), and define the order of the crossover. The higher order, the steeper rolloff.

Another possibility is to start a new thread, and get some diy-help for your crossover - many folks around here can help you
