Default Great project interest check

A few years back, I was in the market for some small speakers. I spent about 3 months traveling around and looking for the best speaker my money could buy. The closest thing to what I was looking for was the Vienna Acoustics Bach's. The last place I looked was my very local high end shop. I loved the Jean Marie Renaud Twins, but they were like $1200.00 for the pair on stands. The salesperson then brought out a pair of JPW ML510i's. I auditioned these with the Meadowlark Kestral's and the JMR's. All I can say is that for $350.00 the JPW ML510i's, sure did hold their own against these other two much more pricey options. Well, I'm in the market for another set of speakers! I want a set of ML510i's, but they aren't available anywhere, and never were. I think I own the only set in the USA. Anyways, I've come to the conclusion that I just might have to build clones of these wonderful loudspeakers! I will be building exact clones and I am just doing an interest check. Please let me know if anybody out there would be interested in reading a step by step tutorial on how to build clone's of this wonderful speaker. It will be my first online tutorial.

Default Changed my mind

What I actually meant was improved clones. Instead of the MDF enclosure and plastic baffle found on the original, I will use premium hardwoods, the same drivers, crossover and box dimensions. Still interested?

Premium hardwoods?? It would be better to use particle board, MDF, or plywood, and then veneer them in premium hardwoods. Or better yet, make them from concrete. For a loudspeaker, you wand a very rigid, nonresonant structure. Hardwoods, while they look nice, are usually to resonant for a loudspeaker enclosure, and the reason you dont find them used for this purpose.
