Default DIY ProAc Response 2s?

I've found a bunch of links to the Responce 2.5 DIY Project, but I'm wondering if anyone has done the 2s?

Is it as simple as cutting the 2.5 in half? I've got a friend that has a pair of these, but I'm sure he wouldn't want me tearing into them to find out what is in there.

Any thoughts?

Mr Tripps (or is that Captain Tripps?): With all due respect, the answer is why bother building a Proac Response 2 when it is now an old and antiquated design compared to the 2.5. The 2.5 uses a modern Scanspeak carbon driver combined with a larger floorstanding cabinet to give killer bass compared to the 2 ?? The 2.5 is also apparently sweeter and more musical.

Regards,

Steve M.

I really like bookshelf speakers. I've got a real nice set of Target stands and I'd like to keep using them. I know I'll get better bass from the 2.5, but I always liked the look of the Responce Two S.

BTW: Captain is fine. =)

If you keep the baffle width the same, and re-tune it, you should be able to make a nice bookshelf out of it. I would also look at www.murphyblaster.com, as he has a design using the usher 9950 and 9545 in a bookshelf speaker that should yeild very similar results.

Are the Usher drivers that nice?

They are supposed to be outstanding, some ears like the sound of the 9950 more than the scan-speak 9500

I have no experience with them though.

Bingo...That is what I was looking for!

I'll build these and see how they stack up against a real set. Thanks again for the link...
