Default New speaker build

I've been very busy turning stuff on my lathe and have gotten away from audio for a while. Just in the last weeks, I've gotten the itch to build a pair of speakers...which I don't need. I just need to do some experimenting.

I just picked up these six drivers and two crossovers for 25 bucks. They came from a Visio Sound Bar but I am thinking about doing towers with subs in the bottom.

Does anyone know these drivers???

Here are the components I was thinking about using for the sub bottom.

C&C are welcome.

I've made something similar to the Triska sub. I didn't put any "internal amplifier".
I just needed to put in use a pair of (lo-power) Peerlees subs, one of them had a detached VC former from the cone so I made it become a passive.
Somebody told me it was better to put the passive on the opposite face of the "cube"...
Only afterwards...!!!

I already have the two plate amps that go to the Triska so I just need the drivers and PRs. in the plans it talks about using only 1 PR but the pix show him using 2 per box. What gives?

Whatever; I wouldn't put any electronic inside a box where there's a speaker.
Especially a sub !!!
Damping factor with the added Re of some feet of wire wouldn't suffer much

Thanks J. That is what I figured and was going to order, I just thought it interesting that I've seen them with only one PR.

I've gone back and forth about that P. I built my main subs years ago and have the Bosh 300 mounted in each box (I built two of them) and they are still rocking. Go figure.

It's philosopical; I stay better with myself
About figuring it out: what about the continuous and tremendous vibrations
that the electronics ( which is just a bunch of components attached to a PCB )
"feel"...or they don't ?

Here is the dilemma; These will go to my nephew for his dorm room next year. So they need to be neat and tidy, but they are going to a dorm room so they will most likely be played hard and loud, so the amps should be outside the box.

I was rooting around my stash and found two 12" subwoofers. I don't have any data on them except what I could get using WT3. So I have the subwoofers, the plate amps, four mids and two tweeter plus the crossover. All I need now is a sheet of MDF and I am set.

Here is a screen shot of the subwoofers.
