Default Hello from Quebec city

Hi everyone,

I'm from Quebec city, Canada. I'm planning to build a center speaker and back surround speakers to match my main speakers. I won't make them with particule board (like mdf but lesser quality) this time. As for my user name: my shoes are size 15.

Here's a little description of my system:

Main speakers: Home made Patrician 800 enclosures, (but didn't make the front decorative trims and made of particle board). Drivers are (all Electro-voice) : 30w 30" sub for bass up to around 100 Hz, SP12B 12" midrange speaker, T25A driver with 8HD dispersion horn, and T350 tweeter, crossovers are EV also.

Center and surround : Sony until I finish making new cabinets (I don't have all drivers yet)

Electronics: Sony str-de675 receiver, Panasonic DVD player, Pioneer CD player, Fisher VCR (haven't used it last 2 years), Carver M1.5T power amp (will be used when I'll decide to wire the 30W separatly from the main enclosures), dbx 120X (I rarelly use until I move out from my appartment), Marantz 3250B stereo console (not used for now), dbx 4bx (not used for a while).

tv: and old 14" tv (at least it's color).

Plans for the future:
Buying EV drivers for center and back channel (50% done), then buy apropriate crossover. Decide on enclosure and build it.
Make lamp amplifier (I find all transistor amps too noisy for my setup).

Welcome to the forum. You'll find all sorts of ideas for valve amplifiers over at the tubes section.
The loudspeaker: The only commercial Hi-Fi item where a disproportionate part of the budget isn't spent on the box. And the one where it would make a difference...
