I tried 3 different store bought sevreal top brand names put found most to large and little bass. So I bought 4 HiVi B3N 3 in mid/bass 15/30 watts. Amp was a 100 watter per ch so I added 4 20 watts 8 ohms non-inductive resistors to eat up the power. I've have now changed reveivers to a smaller one with a dvd/cd built in. It's a 4 ohm unite so I series then in to pairs for 4 ohms to match my new receiver with virtual surround sound. Only differance is no center ch now. I built the cabinets out of popular and MDF. Their 4in wide X 5in high and 3 in deeo. Used round pressfit terminals. They may be small cabinets but reproduce bass from 100 hz up. I finished the new system off with Parts Express little 8 in subwoofer. I'm enjoying my system very much.

About The Designer

I'm just a amature/hoppist. I'm in my 70's and have been playing with making or rebuilding speaker cabinets for the past 58 yrs. Started out in HS woodshop building my first speaker cabinet called EV Regency II for a two way 15 in system. It would shake the house even with our low powered 10 watt tube amp of the day. Think of that 10 watts tops 15. Sure time have changed. HiFi sure has come a long way.
