Default diy proac studio 100s

Hi Guys, I've been looking around for a bit, and this is my first post. I'm wondering if anyone has attempted a clone of the studio 100s... it would seem as if you could get close, due to simplicity of design/scan-speak drivers, square box, etc. I would be using these mostly for monitoring application. What do you guys think?

The only thing you would have to buy from ProAc would be the MidWoofer. They had it slightly modified and the Scanspeak 18W/8542 isn't the exact one. They are available from the ProAc rep at slightly more per pair shipped than at Madisound. http://madisound.secureserverdot.com...roducts_id=933

You can buy the tweeter at Madisound direct and the crossover and cabinet aren't complicated!

I think you could build them for less than half their cost new and with a few tweaks they will sound even better!

Good luck!

Regards//Keith

Hi B.L.,

So how do they sound compared to the originals?

Nice job! Did you compensate anything on the crossover for the slight differences in the midwoofers? I wasn't sure whether the tweeters were Scanspeak or Seas. By the time you finished them what percentage of retail price did they cost you?

Regards//Keith

from a polish board:

cabinet:

unfortunatly only in polish, but google-translation should be sufficient to get the idea.

What info do you find conflicting?
I briefly read trough that thread and there is a picture of original crossover with parts specs and proposed modification with SS tweeter and different network. The cab dimmension should be in pdf file which I did not open. The owner of the modified speaker liked the outcome and commented only positive changes like fuller midrange without a touch of dryiness and better highs.
