Thank you all.


I have planned those speakers for 1 year. The concept is like : XTZ 100.49
Only the tweeter is from Accuton. I hope those speakers will sound better then the XTZ 100.49.

Now the speakers are going to have crossover. First for test will use the mundorf MCap. Later on in 3-6 months i will use for the final the MCap
SUPREME SILVER/GOLD. I know those are expensive but i know too that it will upgrade allot my Accutons and maybe my Seas.

Now they will remain like 6 months in unpainted stage for the glue to dry.
Stay tuned.

Hi,

What wood glue are you using that takes 6 months to dry ?
What wood glue is effected by whether the cabinets are painted or not ?

There is a lot more to x/o design than picking expensive components.

rgds, sreten.

Great Job, they look fantastic.

My first DIY was very close, I used the SEAS aluminum 10" (can't remember which model #)

My second is using the Accuton 5.5" C158 instead of the C173, and a powered 15" woofer.

Isn't this a fun hobby.
