Hi guys!

Hoping you can help me. I am new to this realm of DIY speakers and was looking to embark on my first project. After millions of hours of reading, I have decided my best action will be to build a DIY speaker that is cheap, tried and tested and has extensive plans attached.

The Sten IIs from the Curts Speaker Design Works web site seems the go.

I want to build to his specs, listen, learn and adjust.

Problem I have is I can't find the Aura NS6 drivers he's suggesting, for sale. They're discontinued it seems on the PE site and the Madisound site.

Can anyone please suggest either a replacement driver of similar spec, or suggest a place I can purchase the Auras?

I am happy to spend up to maybe $35 per driver if necessary. Being my first project I was hoping to get out of it reasonably cheap to save on costly mistakes.

Any help greatly appreciated.
Regards

Thanks fellas!

Would this design be suitable for an alternate driver?
Whats your thoughts on modifying the cabinet slightly to accommodate a set of Dayton DC-160s?

I know what you mean fastbike1, I'd spent so much time looking for comprehensive designs for my first build, I didnt check the actual availability of parts.

Thanks again!
