Selenium D210TI on 6" wave guide
Beyma 6Mi80 (hi-efficiency mid)

if you look at the left one, you can see where I stuffed up and had to replace the section around the mid. forgot to check the router bit depth.. doh !!

I bet the router was feeling warm after that Are these going to be open baffle? the mids at least... box construction will be a challenge if they are not!

Yep , all open baffle, but facility is in mind to add wings should they be required to get extra bass.

And with drivers test fitted..Click the image to open in full size.

..." extra bass "... chuckle/snort! no, seriously they look great and maybe would make your ears bleed from a 1 watt amp? The Selenium and Beyma are still available?

1 what ??

I'll be using my PA amps because they all have graphic EQ built into their cabinets
So, that's a Mackie M-1400, a Tapco J800, and a Behringer A500.
I have a Behringer CX3400 to do the x-o work. Gunna be fun

I hope that is enough power for a small lounge room

The Beyma I got from in Sydney.. the Krix dealers iirc

The Selenium I got from a MAdisound sale, at $25US each, about $47 each, landed. iirc

I think you are going to need some more grunt Andy, I hear you have a reallyy big lounge-room ( at least it would be if it wasn't full of projects ) I use the CX 3400 and it is adequate but a little noisy, are all the amp inputs balanced?

Hi Andy,

'Nice looking project - those big pro woofers look tasty! What sort of crossover points are you looking at?

I'll be using the Tascam CD-401 (its output is down quite a bit cos its getting old so, yes, all connections up to the amps will be fully balanced.

Lounge room is a 'nice' size. and its not 'that' full of loudspeakers.. methinks someone was exaggerating
