That's more like professional audio(PA systems).
Also, I do not know why do you consider cabinet working that important. IMO you need to work on learning about speakers first then moving on to cabinet. Yes, cabinet working is as equally as a driver and a system design, but really consider starting out with speakers. Just like computers, when you learn about it, you don't start out with how it looks, how sexy the case is, but you look into the internal parts(what makes it work).
haha, thats why i took apart my rockford fosgate punch SE driver which wouldnt work. the voice coil got burned. not suprised considering it came out of somones car who couldnt even bother paying to get it back before it got impounded. it did give me a physical understanding of exactly how the driver works on a more detailed level than taking apart crappy $2 drivers...then again thats kinda weird because i already knew the theory on how they work.
a current gets sent from a device into a voice coil which turns it into an electro-magnet which reacts with the permanent earth magnet. when the voice coil moves up and down towards and away from the earth magnet which is glued to the basket assembly, it will move the spider which helps keep the voice coil stabilized and move the diaphragm assembly (cone and dustcap) which in turn, will move air molecules which will reach your ears and move a tiny bone in your ear many times per second in correlation with the air molecules movement which is measured in htz and decibels. this bone is attatched to a nerve and the brain interperates that as sound. did i hit the mark?
even knowing that does nothing to help me in figuring out the quality of speakers. when i see graphs of distortion versus decibels, crossover diagrams, other stuff on charts and whatnot, it literally looks like greek to me. i have no idea how the shape of the cabinet works with with the acoustical properties of the driver itself other than a curved cabinet will reduce resonance dramatically according to some polk audio engineer looking guy i saw on a video. these are the areas i need to learn huge ammounts of information. then i need to learn how to produce first, functional, then good looking cabinets applying what i have learned.
on a side note, that super tweeter is actually a good quality tweeter? 38 bucks doesnt seem too steep for even a good dome tweeter to me. im guessing id have to fiddle with the crossover alot to get that tweeter to match up well with any 90 or less db woofer though, that being said it seems it would match up well with that fullrange and i plan on looking online on reviews of that fullrange with 97db, but i wouldnt even build with one til i got a good ammount of money and really knew what i was doing.
