dayton br-1 and br-1s is just the 1s have shielded woofers and tweeter so that it doesn't create interference with other sensitive electronics when they are placed close.

as for difficulty imo easy. as long as you can solder that would be the hardest part.

tools just basic hand tools, drill, and soldering iron.

For me, making the cabinet was the hardest part, but then again, I can't draw a straight line to save my life.

I built the Overnight Sensations. It now lists a guy who makes cabinets for like $25 there which would be a bargain if you aren't doing it for the fun/experience.

They sound great and I miss them greatly right now (moved to Tokyo for a year). They do not have a super low/strong bass. They work great for movies (even explosions) and for all my music, but if your looking to play dubstep, they really aren't for you.

ya making th cabinets are hard but that is what i do and end up spending a unforeseen $50-100 in new tools for the one time project. after that finishing takes a while depending how you want to finish them. this is the main reason why i recommended the parts express kit as the cabinets are already and its mainly a matter of just making the crossover.

as for the overnight sensations those look nice. just like the tv speakers i built in my sig except that mine use a 3" woofer.

They worked really well for a dorm room.

On the bright side, you can kinda think of tools as an investment. At least I do.
