Estimate the internal size of the original box if you dont have it any more and make a new one.

Place the drivers close together for better imageing

Unless you can find specs for the drivers this is about all you can do. Unless you measure them yourself !
That takes a bit of work.

What I have for parts are Synergy sf-3 parts. Basically I could take a speaker apart and bring it to a cabinet maker and see what the person could do..

What wrong with them btw?

Just putting them in another square box wont improve the sound....

I have some other tips for you though if you want a "cleaner" more musical sound.
I have RF-3's and have done the below;

- Replace cross over resistors with non inductive ones
- Damped back wave from woofers with very dense sound absorbing material against the back wall + Rubbery something called "dynamat" in the US i beleave.
- Place small high quality caps over(paralel) the larger ones in the crossover.

Ive also improved the horns and damped the high freq. driver but thats a different story

This all really makes the sound more natural and expansive but it depends on YOUR goal and effort if its something for you.

Let me know how you like it if you make any of the changes.

Regards,

Coolin

No a friend gave me some replacement parts for current sf-3's. So the parts are just laying in a box. I just trying to make a set of speakers out of them. And I don't know how to go about that. THanks for the help!!

DIMENSIONS:

Wood will probably be 3/4 inch, its not that critical


This is the newer model

42 (106.7cm) x 9.5 (24.1cm) x 16 (40.6cm)

The SF-3's are dual 8" speakers, but you said you have two 6.5" woofers, which would be for the SF-2. Is it possible that you have a mix of parts from the SF-2 and SF-3? Either way, I have a pair of SF-2's and SF-3's at home, so I can get you the dimensions of either if you like.

Sorry about that mix up in parts. I have 8 inch not 6.5. Sorry again. Yeah get me the dimensions that would be great. Also for the horn, i think thats what it is called. What do I use for that. Can I order a part from somewhere. THanks Again......
