I had about 10 minutes to work, and a quick A-B comparison says they sound much better to me. I'll work them over later.
I don't have any woodworking equipment, so the cabs will have to do.
EDIT: Didn't see this was the hifi thread, just clicked on the link on the "discussions"
Final product was Crystal xovers which are around 4k, which makes the tweet passable for me. Removed half a handful of fill, and I'm leaving the grills off. Definitely boomy(was expected), but works well with no sub for BF3 and are a mile better than what I was using. I should be able to get a scrap piece or two of dowel this weekend to keep it from flexing, but I'm not pushing them hard anyhow. The finish in the recess was poor (as expected), but I will repair that soon.
The closest I have to good speakers are the Bic Venturis I picked up 2 weeks ago at a church re-sale shop with an older Sony receiver.. $80.00 out the door for bothEdited by Metalcrack - 1/11/13 at 5:10am
