Question Tang Band Speakers

Hi, I am planning to build a new set of speakers to replace my current horrible set of pc speakers . I am new to the diy audio world, ( I have basic ideas of how speakers work and have been browsing this forum for about the last 2 weeks.) relatively skilled in electronics, and I am looking for a good project to start with (around 100-200$ us). I would like to have 2 separate speakers based off of a pair of tang band W4-1337SD 4" titanium drivers. They would be desirably about 4' tall and a narrow width. I am just asking for maybe some design ideas or what general size of the enclosure I should build etc.., seeing that I have really no idea what I am doing.

Thanks,
Joel D.

You could give the Tabaq a try... my gut feeling says they will do fine with these...

Hello,

my idea for such driver would be a
double horn like my KORNETT (cornet)

the Titan driver i thought about was the SA.

Joel,
I built a pair of these...
http://www.parts-express.com/project...?project=3CRTi

... and couldn't be happier with them. They sound great and go surprisingly low for a 4" driver.

You could extend them or put them on stands to make them the height you're looking for.

Definitely an awesome speaker and the designer is on the Parts Express forum quite a bit and was very helpful when I built mine.

Mike

I believe that those speakers you have provided the link for would be perfect for me, I'll build them! Thanks, I'll hopefully have a finished product in a few months, where i can start saving some money for the project+build them.

Oh build the Tabaq.... it's so sublime. I'm listening to mine right now. Amazing. This speaker should get so much more play on the forum than it does.

Hey Joel,
Just stopping by to see if you're still planning on building the 3CR-Ti's? I'm listening to mine as I type this. I have them hooked up to a tube amp project I've been working and, I must say, the little guys really are very good sounding speakers. Besides the sound being great, they image very well. Different parts of the music are right in front of me, and other parts are off to the sides. You'd think there were at least three or four speakers running.
The small footprint of these is great too. These should rate very high in the WAF, if that's an issue.
I hope all is well with you and your speaker projects.
Mike
