I am really more excited about the 12" mid, which will take care of 250-800hz ... I find this area the most important and also difficult ... the rest is just filling in

Default Want to make PMC IB1S or similar 3 way

Hi,

It's been 6 years...any updates ? I'm sure there are!

I am new to DIY speaker building but it looks like i have little choice. The speakers i want are way too expensive (PMC IB1S).

I'd need them for studio monitoring, mixing, mastering. I need unforgiving detail & analysis, neutrality and bass that goes at least down to 30Hz (-3dB).

I have looked around a lot and cannot find any kits that seem convincing or cheap enough. Let's say that the budget is approx 1000 US$ for the components and that i have to do the best with that.

Any suggestions ?

Many many thanks in advance !
If you drop by Guanajuato Mexico PM me and we can hook up.

Cheers,
Rick

Thanks a lot. Although that would amount to quite a bit more than 1000 dollars in drivers.
The Scan Speak 32W is about 400Ä, ie about as much as a 12" Volt similar to that used in the XX000Ä PMC MB2's.
Has anyone tested these Volt "Radial" speakers ?
