Find the Right Woofer

15" 5-Way System

This is a system that I built to replace a pair of Pioneer CS-99A's that I had and still have in storage. They are composed of a Goldwood 15" Woofer, 6-1/2" Lower Midrange, 5" Upper Midrange, Two 4-ohm Phenolic Ring Tweeters, and Goldwood Piezo Tweeter. 3/4" Oak veneer plywood box with internal fir frame with stiffeners and removable grill with Oak trim drivers were matched as to sensitivity and power handling capacity. Mid and High range level controls, and custom wound Inductors for the crossovers. Separate enclosures inside for both Midranges and stuffed loosely with Fiberglass Wool. Gaskets everywhere.
