Hey Eric. Yeah, not looking too bad. That could work with some slight design changes... Thanks. I'll search some more info on that project and see if it's something for me.

Do you have an idea of the cost for speakers and crossover?

Here are mine dipoles, very similar to Jamo r909 in sound, but to the fifth of the cost...

The cost of the drivers is about $500 per speaker, another $200-300 for the XO, and figure another $100 or so for wood, screws, glue, paint, etc. Total somewhere $800-$1000 each, depending on choice of XO components and wood finishing. These were designed for high power handling with very clean output and they deliver quite well!

Jonas- I like the look of your speakers, too - especially the small footprint!

It might be a bit expensive for a first time OB build, I think.

Hmmm... what to do... what to do... with a little luck I'll get my hands on some used speakers so I can experiment a little before deciding.

Found this Jamo-look-alike project by scorpion:

MJAO G 098 - The Anagram - Crossover revision

Looks pretty good I think. Although it's been a while since someone last posted anything to the thread...

Have a look at this project.
The Manzanita OB
Very easy to build, not expensive. And let me give you a sneak preview of what's to come.

For the mid/tweeter use the Vifa TC9FD18-08 3" fullrange. Stay with the same Peerless 12". Crossover is dead simple, only 3 parts. 20mH on the woofer, 11uF+6R in series on the Vifa 3". Voila! You can vary the resistor by a few ohms to blend best with your room.

For not much money you'll have a great sounding speaker. Make it as pretty or ugly as you like.

Hi Pano,
I use similar speakers for background music in basement while working on projects. It has 10F3 4" fullrange, 16 ohm version and some 12" woofer/midrange, 16 ohm as well, on open baffle. Crossover is one cap. I do not know the brand of 12" woofer, it came from Fisher console, it has paint over the label. This open baffle does not put much bass, but boy does it sing with small tube amps...
edit...mine is completely ugly
