Dayton Audio RS621 Speaker Kit w/o Cabinet
Is tweeter exchangeable with the fabric (soft) dome version?
Unfortunately you will have to purchase the individual parts if you want the silk dome version of that tweeter, we cannot substitute components.

Is this for one speaker enclosure or two for stereo?
It looks like enough to build one side . Why not make it less confusing? I almost bought this thinking I would have two speakers.
Selling them individually allows the buyer to purchase however many they may want for their system (like 3 for their LCR or 5/7 for a full surround system) and not be limited to multiples of two.

Can someone give me advice on a cylindrical cabinet dimension?
I'm a product designer, and I'm just getting into speaker building (mostly as a hobby). My goal is to create a set of speaker boxes, using this kit, that are half-cylinders (when not in use the speaker faces could potentially face each other creating a full cylinder). If the inside diameter of the enclosure is 8", how deep do I need to go? I may house the crossovers in a compartment below the top enclosure. Any advice or alarms with the shape would be helpful.
Design and engineering are strange bedfellows... Start with your vision, but engineer backwards. You have to have a flat baffle for the drivers to mount to. Behind that, you need to have the correct cubic volume, in this case, .25 cu ft. Using pi-r-squared, you can determine the size of the cabinet using a curved surface. Generally speaking, this project won't easily lend itself to the shape. Larger cabinets would. There was a speaker in the 80's that used a cardboard tube with a section cut out for the front baffle. It was a very good product both visually and inherently acoustically due to the properties of the cabinet and construction. Outside of your design concept - you are just dealing with simple math. Good luck.

Why does the Dayton Audio Loudspeaker Kit Components Manual show the kit as a 4 ohm ? Does the kit come in two versions ? If so display the 8 ohm !
The manual we have posted on the website, which should be the same one you receive with the kit, clearly states that the impedance of this kit is 8 ohms. I apologize for any confusion. If you received the wrong manual with your kit, please contact us at 1-800-338-0531 and we'd be glad to send you the correct manual.

Are plans/specifications included for building your own enclosure?
