Default Making tower spks. with peerless drivers

ok...well im looking to build 2 tower speakers out of peerless drivers.

I want to keep my budget at 100-120 bux for all the drivers for both towers not including anything else.

http://www.partsexpress.com/webpage....ge_ID=137#dome

Well theres a list of all of peerless drivers from partsexpress, which is where they will be purchased from.

BTW: Most of the bass is taken care of by a tempest in a 214 liter ported box, tuned to 15.4hz.

If you are looking into Peerless drivers, Bob Brines made a great pair off of Peerless TL speakers based off of Martin King's mathcad files ( www.quarter-wave.com ).

His website is at:
http://www.geocities.com/rbrines1/
His Peerless Pipes page is at:
http://www.geocities.com/rbrines1/Pa...rless_Pipe.htm
His Construction page is at:
http://www.geocities.com/rbrines1/Pa...nstruction.htm

I heard them at the DIY2002 Atlanta event, and they were one of the best sounding speakers at the event. The only fault was that the tweeter was a bit harsh, but the bass was there quite nicely, and it was pretty flat. The series crossover that he uses works quite nicely.

It is a good speaker design and not too expensive using the peerless drivers.

Well.. I was just commenting on the bass was good, but overall, they were very good speakers, considering the overall cost put into them. I want to make a similar TL design using SS 9500 tweeters and 8545 woofers.

the 8545/9500 are an older generation.

there are lots of new drviers out there that might be better.

one option might be (since we are looking at SS) a 2.5 way using the 18W/4531, 15W/4531 and R2904/70000. the only thing i dont like about these drivers is their low impedance. you might have some real low impedance in a 2.5 way

a cheaper alternate can be found at

hope this helps.

well then what tweeter and midrange combo should i go with (from partsexpress) if i were to only do sats...Keep in mind that my reciever only puts out 100w per channel, and that i do like listening to my music at pretty high levels.

I have an idea!

For the midbass in my sats. i could use one of these for each sat....

http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/pshow...=297-600&DID=7

For the tweeters in my sats. i could use one of these for each sat...

http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/pshow...=277-406&DID=7

And to make a center channel with 2 of these...

http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/pshow...=297-600&DID=7

And one of these...

Default driver combination

The difference in sensitivity of the drivers make them a poor combination IMO. I think A dome tweeter will match better with woofers in the 5-6" range. If you are not totally set on using a peerless tweeter, I would recommend the audax dome tweeters in the same price range. Hope this helps,

Austin
