It might not be hard to buy a speaker for. There very possibly is a speaker or several that fits this box beautifully.

Before I abandoned a perfectly good box, I would give the forum's Transmission Line people a chance to help you select a woofer. I guess the major thing they would want to know is what the taper is. Give me the internal measurements of the box, including where the dividing board is located, and I can do that for you.

Or, if you don't want to do that, I can give a recommendation for a 6.5" driver that would fit into a ported box. You would have to knock down that dividing board, or cut a couple of big holes in it with a handheld saber saw first, though. Which might not be that big of a job-you should be able to reach your hand in thru the woofer hole. Once you do that, then this speaker becomes a ported box-different from a Transmission Line.

It's up to you. We didn't mean to give the impression that this is that big of a thing. Personally, I think this box is perfectly usable.

The best measurements to give an idea of how the line will behave in simulation are the area of the top of the line, area at the bottom, the length of the line, and position of the speaker in the front baffle.

Once I get Virtual PC up and running this week, I will be able to use Martin's simulations to help out if need be.

Don't give up yet!

hey guyz thankz for the post and help you were giveing me.
but i sold the towers for $200.00, not bad the thing cost my about $50.00 to build.

now i'm thinking about building sum floorstanding speakers. like a 3-way were i'll have one tweeter and two 6.5 but the lower 6.5 will have a divider between it and the rest of the speakers. so if you know any sites were they have step by step and pics, that would be awesome guyz.
