Need a new dream to chase - help me find great Home theater DIY speakers to build.

Hallo guys.




So im looking for a new dream to presu, i need a little dream in my belly to work on, so i came here to get this new dream.
Will be using thise for home theater and cds from my oppo BD95 - 70/30% use

Im looking for a whole new setup of speakers for my HT, i currently run 2 1/2 fronts " SEAS Excel element/ Fountek NeoCd3.0 tweeter" i really like the ribbon sound for movies. SR are M&K k4 tripoles and M&K s-85pro

I drive this whit a Onkyo NR 906 and a Yammaha MX-1000 power amp.
i will be upgrading this at some point to pre+ power 2/3ch + 5ch, haven't decided on anything yet..

Well to start of, i have seen speakers like the Super V Click the image to open in full size.

and others similar, and i have no clue what of this will work in a HT setup, so post away, post builds and ill comment back until i have found my new next set of speakers,.

ill add that i like the 2 1/2 - full range as fronts for movie sound, they just bring a bigger sound-stage imo. but im open for anything if i get a sound explanation on why x =y

I dont know anything about HT multi speaker setup, but I would expect dipoles could make things a bit 'messy'

how about this

What kind of budget are you looking at?

I have been mulling around the possibility of Alpair 7 FAST for Main R&L with Alpair 7's Vented for Center and Rear R&L.

I must say I like this recommendation. Five of these(properly placed based on the ITU-B775 standards) and a few nice quality subs(distributed of course) would make not only a great hometheater, but a great 5.1 music system as well.

I must say, the idea of three of your L/R mains, and four of your center speakers for surround is also a great idea. Dual center speakers have been shown to degrade both vocals and center imaging, so I am not so sold on the concept.

3 of my l/r mains? and 4 of my center speakers? that doesn't quite make sense.


both sets of speakers are just wired as LR mains. the center ones have 3.3ohm resistance in line, so they just fill in the sound a bit. i don't use 5.1 because i mainly listen to music. they where primarily as a computer monitor stand. As i am only 25 and have a basic job, I am a bit limited for space

England like that, if you have a basic job you can only afford a room, sucks really

Those look really great!
I think we should all compliment each others work a little more around here.
It's not easy to build this stuff.

My belief is that omni's give the best presentation for HT.
My little mirages sounded better that my big maggies.....for home theater.
