TriTrix MTM TL Speaker Kit Components Only Pair
TriTrix MTM TL Speaker Kit Components Only Pair is rated 4.7143 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great first project.These speakers are clear and transparent, they do good work on the highs they are a little week on the low end but nothing a sub cant fix. I think we made them look better than they sound but they are great. I made these with my father he is into woodworking so that portion of the project took about 50hr but it was fun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound, better priceBought this as my first set of nice speakers. I am completely satisfied, I didn't realize how much I was missing from music with poor quality speakers.I built some vented boxes based very closely on Curt C's design except I moved the drivers around a little bit and moved the port to the side as they will be sitting against a wall. I painted the fronts with some red oxide primer then cleared over the top and covered the sides with some of the walnut vinyl found here at parts express.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Deal but...This is a great deal on good sounding speakers. I built the sealed version and used a sub. The designer states that they were designed to be used in various types of enclosures for HT or music reproduction on a budget. And I'm sure they will fulfill those roles, but for new comers picking out a good sounding budget speaker for music I would suggest you consider the Karma Indignia DIY speaker project that is listed on the PE speaker projects section. They use a better sounding and much better looking woofer and cross the tweeter at a higher hz. I just think for music they sound better. They are in the same price range and from the documentation went under quite a bit of scruteny while being developed. The SPL is lower but they played plenty loud for me and you can buy nicely finished front baffles for them. I'm sure people that disagree with me will hit the unhelpful button and that is fine but I thought it might help someone to point them in that direction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What are you waiting for?I decided to try my hand with oak for the cabinets, I'm usually a mdf kinda guy but wanted to make something to be proud of.  I used oak ply from a box store and quarter round base trim. Stained with minwax cherry but not yet varnished. After breaking these in face to face,  out of phase with a blanket over the two in my garage for a few days I connected them to my Nad C725BEE. I couldn't believe my ears! Setup properly, not toed in directly at the listener, the soundstage is like surround sound. So clear and transparent it doesn't sound like speakers, just music. I actually ducked down once because lightning clapped overhead but was in the track, not outside. Bass response is great all the way down low, and measured pretty flat, but it can only be made better with a sub for the physical impact. I've been building speakers now for 19 years and these are the best I've ever had.All in all my expectations were surpassed in every way and you can't expect a better deal than this for truly high dollar sound.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality TriTrix kitBuilt two and enjoyed the sound so much I bought and built two more. This was my first speaker undertaking so it probably took me longer than some people. In the end though it was time well spent. The speakers sound better than anything I had previously owned and the price was right, good weekend project.

I want to change the reference design for the cabinets

I have bought this kit, and am thinking about changing the reference design for the cabinets. To make them look different and less imposing I would like to cut out the side of the speakers on an angle following the internal baffle and halfway down to the back port, giving the side an imbalanced Z look. Do you think this will change the audio characteristics significantly ?
Asked by: Pete down under
If you modify the cabinet you change the interior volume - that will DRAMATICALLY change the performance of the speaker. If you want a different cabinet shape, you need to change the dimensions to compensate for the shape which deletes volume. A custom geometric cabinet with the same volume and port consideration is not a novice project.

How much will modifying the encloser size affect the sound quality?

I'm going to build my own TL enclosers since I have access to a CNC at work. My question is about reducing the cabinet depth from 14.25" to maybe 12" or even 10". I'm planning to increase the height to 42" to keep the internal volume close, but do I need to worry about changing the angle of the back panel, etc?Curt's website specifies volume in liters, but I'm not sure what counts for volume in a TL cabinet and what doesn't.TIA for the help.
Asked by: Rollins097
This is probably a bad idea. A TL enclosure design is based on the length, width, and height according to the wavelength of the tuning frequency. Changing the dimensions may not necessarily ruin the sound but it will change the fundamental design and will definitely make it sound different than it was intended.If you need to make changes to the dimensions, you really need to take a serious look at a new design which would likely include a new crossover and coming up with the correct numbers for the type of design you are thinking of using.
