Default Looking for DIY Studio Speaker

Hi guys,

I am looking for some informations on building my studio mixing and mastering monitors. I was listening to a lot of speakers the last months and liked some of the high end speaker but they are very expensive and I was missing something on every one. I know here are a lot of experienced people. I would like to know what brands you could recommend and what should I be aware of and so on...
Thank you very much.
Here is a picture I think the speaker could be like.

How about these, very well regarded. You may be able to reduce the volume a bit with a little less bass or just use as they are. You looking for passive or active with dsp?

Thank you Ugg. Active would be great but I also consider passive! DSP is not really needed, my room is acoustically treated and I have room correction hardware, but as always if DSP is integrated it will help for sure.

The Statments look good, but I am a little bit biased becuase of the small housing. Every speaker I heard so far, for example the Dynaudio lacked a little. bit in the lower frequencies. May be I am wrong on the Statments.

Must admit I woukd not have classed the statements as small at 60” x 12” x 17” and 100l enclosure with f3 of 33hz.

There are a load of potential ones on here for ideas Strassacker: Loudspeakerkits (DIY kits)

The Visaton Experience V20 looks interesting, diesn’t Go as deep but has what looks like a pretty flat response.

The audimax looks similar to the statement.

Not as elaborate as your sketch but this may do the job

Humble Homemade Hifi - Calpamos

FWIW, the JBL M2 is one of the finest large speakers I've heard in recent years and it uses a similar (ish) driver set-up

This looks a lot like your request:Strassacker: Speaker Building, Components

But really, what's your budget ?

What level of sound reproduction do you expect? Which speakers did you listen?

thanks to everybody. the Humble Homemade looks really interesting. the strassacker site is a little bit stange, but I can not really say if there is good model?

I listened to ATC scm 150 asl pro, PMC MB2S-P, B&W 803 802 and 800 D3, Focal Scala Utopia.

The level really has to be very high, my room is treated by an acoustician and build by me. So there will not be a problem! :-) I liked the focal a lot, better than the B&W (they were great too) but I wanted the Focal Meastro and they are really expensive and you need a very good amplification for them!

Perhaps a clone of these may do the job MMThree – Evolution Acoustics

A snip at $65k Evolution Acoustics MMThree Loudspeakers - Chambers Audio

Probably of more interest - focal utopia clone built blog. Focal Utopia speaker clone with active crossover - DIY HIFI - HiFi WigWam

And another Focal Stella Utopia clone - Page 11 - AudioDIY.org
