Ok so first off I am a nuby to this forum, I have had a set of Polk Audio Monitor 10's for about 23 years! and they still sound great! Only problem is that they are too big for my space so what I would like to do is build new cabinets for the drivers and tweeter more like a bookshelf size (approx 8w x 20h x 12d). These would be used for side or rear channel in a surround setup.
- First off is this even advisable or am I nuts :D
- Second if this is something that is possible are there guidelines for cabinet building (I am pretty good woodworker so shouldn't be a problem with the right plans). I have been doing some reading on the subject and it looks like the inside dimensions and port size are very important
Does the crossover play into the cabinet size, port size and so on (could I use the original crossover with the new cabinet design).
I am also looking into purchasing similar vintage/old speakers on eBay and building a center cabinet for them.
Any advice / guidelins / plans would be greatly appriciated.
