Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great value- look very nice for the priceFor the price, these sound and look good. I have bought a pair of the higher priced hi-fi .50 cu ft enclosures- which are a bit more heavy duty and finished a little nicer. But very happy with these at the price point. Going to adjust the port length today for tuning- 38 hz is a little on the low side- but can always be shortened.Used 4.3 inch "rings" to mount my tweeter. Also widened out the driver mounting surface just a hair. Most of the grill mounts were broken- as others have noted- but customer service sent out new ones right away.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boxes with small woofer holelight weight but well braced. Six hole is smaller than standard a standard cardboard speaker ring fits in the hole and one may mount a standard six on the surface.the shipping cartons are very soft and it is not likely they will stand reshipping which is sad. One came in with a broken grill as the box softened. I have bought about a dozen pairs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent cabinet and customer supportOrdered a pair. First pair arrived damaged, with all 8 grill studs broken. Sent it back to PE and a new pair was received. No hassle, no problems. Customer Service from PE is what a customer service should be.About the cabinet, excelen option. Well finished, good assembly, easy to use, correctly priced. PE should have other sizes / options like that. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easiest DIY speaker build possibleI couldn't help but try these cabinets for the price. I picked up a pair of PE's $10 Focal 6M115 6-1/2" Midbass Speakers & Tang band's 28-537SH tweeters. Coupled these with ERSE's .9mH perfect layer inductor & Kinbercap's 11uF capacitor in a first order. (I know, I know) Finished assembling them in two hours. What great deep & detailed sound! Really surprised with the build of the cabinet, considering they are only 1/2" thick, they look & sound like they'd cost much more. Do be careful flipping them around...the laminate is thin & can tare.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pleasantly Surprised. Good build quality and looks good.Was pleasantly surprised at how good these looked. The fit/finish of the port tube looks very good. Was really surprised to see that there was also internal bracing from top/bottom and side/side, results in a very solid cabinet. Routing recess for the drivers also looks good. Was impressed enough to buy a second set a couple of weeks later. Used with Vifa BC25TG15-04 1" Silk Dome Tweeter Part #: 264-1040 and GRS 6PR-8 6-1/2" Poly Cone Rubber woofer Part #: 292-426. This tweeter is a little smaller than recess provided (leaves a small gap), still looks fine. Summary: Sounds great. A great deal. Wish PE had more cabinets like this in different sizes/options.

Dayton Audio BR-1CAB BR-1 6-1/2" 2-Way Speaker Cabinet Pair

Can this Cabinet be used with this tweeter "Dayton Audio AMT2-4 Air Motion Transformer Tweeter 4 Ohm"? http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-amt2-4-air-motion-transformer-tweeter-4-ohm--275-092

Asked by: JTEagle
This tweeter is smaller than the DC28F that this cabinet is designed for, so you will need to modify the baffle in order for anything else to work.

I'd like to use these as my computer speakers. What would be a good amp for this purpose? I don't need complicated equalizer controls, just volume and perhaps bass and treble.

Asked by: Splatter
These are empty enclosures and require speakers for them to work. They are cabinets made for our BR-1 kit which you can see below.http://www.parts-express.com/dayton-audio-br-1-6-1-2-2-way-bookshelf-monitor-speaker-kit-pair--300-640

Do you, can you put together a kit as recommended for this enclosure including 2 way crossover design? I think this is what I'm looking for, small punchy hi fi sound.
