Default Building ur own loudspeakers

Hi!,

I would like to know what kind of loudspeaker fits best for my Eq. Iīm looking forward to find some plans and build them myself.

Iīve got a HK Amp 120Watts RMS, and usually listen to any kind of music but reggae, pop and Dance

Thanks!

Regards,

Ezequiel

Hi Ezequiel,

What speakers do you have now and what don't you like about them?

Iīve got two Marantz model 200 from the ī70s


mmmm.... they really need to be replaced. I like clear, clean and natural sound. The room where itīs installed right now itīs 6x6 but Iīm moving to a bigger place.

I really looking for speaker that you just can put anything and get really really great sound.

Thanks !!!

Ezequiel

Hi,

Your question is still a little vague. Why don't you tell us how big they can be and is there any part of the music spectrum you really like or dislike? We need more to go on.

There goes : )

I Love:

Pink Floyd, Clapton, Beatles, Rolling Stones, Brooklyn Funk Essentials, and much more.

Mostly Rock and Jazz, but I also listen to some classical music once in a while

I Hate:

Reggae, and the other ones I posted in my first message.

Space and size of the loudspeakers are not a problem. The main goal is to achieve natural sound, that means that if I close my eyes I must feel the band in my room.

I want to be able to identify each instrument. I donīt like metallic sound.

There is a money limit. I canīt spend more than $1000.

I Hope I got it righ this time : )

Thanks!

Right Cal, & another thing: what sort of budget are we looking at? If it's mainly dance, pop, reggae; I'm presuming the speakers are going to be on permenant "disco duty". How big is the new room? sonds like a job for:

1) a good old fashioned 3-way (taking care to avoid the 700-8KHz region for x-overs if my personal paranoia is to be humoured)

2) a couple of decent full-range IB's & a Couple of sub's

3) haven't a clue what the Marantz 200's are, but could they be tarted up & used with a decent pair of subs?

I need them for home, for personal use. : )

Iīve got these old marantz 50RMS model 200, wooden box. 8'' woofer.

They sound dead. I get bored of my music with those, I donīt know why.

Aha! forget my last post then!

What are the Marantz 200's? - just out of interest, & what don't you like about them?

If clarity & a lack of ferocity in the treble region is what you're after, I'd be seriously considering going the full range route; you could do a superb job with the new Lowther offerings in an IB enclosure - very loud too! Should just about fall into your budget.

I forgot to answer your last question, sorry!

They are 3 way speakers, thatīs all I know. There is no spec in the loudspeaker itself.

Those "things" called Marantz model 200 do not exist anywhere on the internet. Maybe next week I can take a picture to show you.
In the other hand, you know, I wrote Marantz for the specs of those loudspeakers and I almost get kicked in the head.

They really really donīt know how to treat people.


Well,

There it is.
