Happy New Year Tim (and all)

Yes, I've noticed a remarkable similarity in our choices of projects, (I wish I had your 'puter and electronic ability) and I'd be interested in discussing them thru email, if you're interested.

Also kinda wished you'd chimed in sooner. But I was directing my suggestions to perhaps a more modest project and budget.

In case you didn't check out the above link, the Stryke tower adds up like this:
MTM Design Prices:
2 Stryke SA071 woofers $10.00 each 1 Stryke SA-TW1 tweeter $7.00 each
Zaltron parts xover -- $18 each
TOTAL Cost per Speaker -- $45 each.

Pretty cheap (except the xover/driver cost ratio) And if you're game for experimenting, I've played with a tri-amped set-up using a couple TB's with one SA071, and a SA-TW1 that sounds like a decent,very frugal, full range speaker, and would love help working out a design putting them in a TLb using 2,SA071,2 or 4, 871's and a SA-TW1. That adds up to a whopping $45 in drivers.

BTW, from this thread Matt D is selling the drivers for around $200, for this bugdget, this is a well regarded HT set up. Mine are on the way.... it might be worth a check to see if he has more.

Tim, in your opinion, would you build the Isa again or go for something like the CSS Spire?
This will probably sound less than modest, but you did ask for my opinion. I'd build the Isa's again. The only modification I've considered would be to build a longer line adding more 871's and also a tweeter to assist with combing issues. The Isa's sound good as long as you're sitting down or if you're in the far sound field. In the near field you lose HF when you stand up. This isn't much of an issue in HT but when listening to music and walking around it is. Of course, now we're talking about a completely different speaker.

Do you have full details on your Isa including crossover schematics and cabinet dimensions?
Most of this info is on my website. If there's something more just shoot me an e-mail.

Once again, thanks for all the replies! Only one more question, I promise :P

Are there any 2-way 8" driver projects in the same price range that I should look at?
