This started as a curiosity for me in this thread on suitable replacement drivers for a small speaker similar to the LS5/3A. I decided to make a small sealed speaker of the same dimensions as the LS3/5A (12in tall x 7.5in wide x 6.5in deep) with a goal to reproduce the typical response that it so famous for - but using modest (inexpensive) and readily availble drivers.
I think the secret (of the typical nonlinear response) lies in the crossover.

The second set has been finished a few days and finally had a chance to take some images. I highly recommend this speaker for its balanced sound and compact size. The sealed design allows for great flexibility in placement. Kudos to X for this little gem.

Signal lost,

That's a nice build, well done! The stain is looking good under natural light.

Thank you Zman.

The stain looked too orange at first but it is closer what I imagined now. The first set are much darker. The baffle cut out for the woofer is the only difficult part and a template would simplify that job.

Very nice work, SignalLost! Beautiful job with the mitered corners and flush pincusion rebate. I know how hard those are to do. I wish manufacturers would stick with round bezels, but I think the shape gives it a unqiue appearance that is less boring than a round.

I finally had some time to do a dry-fit of the drivers and baffle into the box with all screws. So far so goos. I need to solder up some crossovers now.

The Rockville’s are singing! I am using my 10F/RS225 FAST speaker XO PCBs because I was looking for a nicer looking solution than P2P on a plank. I should get a smaller PCB made as this one is overkill. Lots of space. Although that XO PCB fits perfectly on the floor of the speaker.

They sound great and the voicing is exactly what I expected. Balanced and natural.
