Suggestion for my First Project
 
Hello,

This is actually my first post here. I want to build a Bookshelf Enclosure, but have no experience at all.

My intention is to crete something cheap (don't want to spend more than 50 dolars with the drivers) but with great result!

What do you suggest me? I intent to use it in my room (about 12m).

It would be nice if someone could tell me an easy place to buy the driver in Manhattan, since I'll be there in January.

Ps. Sorry if I made English mistakes, but I'm Brazilian and it's been a while since I don't work my English out.

Thanks!

It's not easy to do that but let's see if we can help.

How big can the boxes be?

I can't help you with buying in Manhattan. I'm half a world away.

I thought of something between 30 to 50 cm high, by 15 to 20 cm wide and 30 to 50 cm deep... But depending on the project it can be a little bigger than that!

I was looking at Fostex drivers and the suggested enclosures from the web site... is that a good ideia?

Hmmm ... at the risk of sounding like a broken record, but do you know a place where you can get some Monacor SPH-60X drivers?
A friend of mine has 9-10 liter cabinets running in his 12m^2 dorm room.
26.5 per driver. Bassreflex and tuned flat till 60Hz. He seems more satisfied with the sound than I expected. :)

Search the forum for the CesT speakers I designed. You'll find some info there, and post here if you want the dimentions to cut the wood.

An other thing you can check out are the "Lancettas", they are ML-QWTL's with a driver from Tang Band. I forgot the exact type tho. :cannotbe:

Do the McKenzie mods (just a simple glue ring plus an RLC equalization circuit) to a pair of Tang Band W4-1052SA:

.35 cu ft vented box tuned to 57Hz (1.5" tube 3" long) looks good.

You could order them from partsexpress, have them shipped to NYC, and have them waiting for you when you arrive.
