I am looking to build my next pair of speakers. I currently have a couple pair of two ways that sound pretty decent but they just don't have enough bass and I have must moved to a new place with a larger living room so the need for more bass is more valid.

I have a few options here based on designs already available on the web. Let me know which one you like best. They are all within my budget.

1. Tony Gee's Galatica: Humble Homemade Hifi
Probably my favorite but the construction pretty daunting and I don't know the reward will justify the cost and time.

2. Troels' DTQWT: DTQWT-mkII
The high efficiency is a plus but I've never made a TL speakers before and I don't know how easy it will be to tune the bass. I can tune the port of a base reflex to match the room but I don't know to do the same for a TL.

3. Troels' Cyclop CYCLOP
Probably easier to make compared to other two.
