This is a great project indeed. Thank for sharing all the info. You are indeed a much better DIYer than me. Laughing

Remember to share with us the speaker shot. Also, pls report the SQ if possible, I am really curious to know.

Hi hotdog,
If thats your crossover assembly on some ply and P2P, I think it deserve a better build. Last year, I helped someone build a Xover, solder in components to the ori schematic, and owner was wise to acquire all the components from Octave. The main and vital component from Octave was a FRP multipurpose PCB which is a good size and very suitable for P2P wiring for similar xover like yours. Sorry, I ain't sure how much it cost, but I feel it'll make your assembly look more professional. Regards!

Hi Hotdog
.
I saw the picture of the crossover and reminded me of my build of the Ob5 and V2 from GR Research ( listed in Audiocircle ). I hide the crossover in the cabinet and the untidy work is only known by me Laughing
I have no work work skills and very basic electronic knowledge. manage to complete it after about 6 months of waiting for the carpenter to finish the cabinet !
The sense of achievement is very satisfying and of course i love the speakers in sight and sound .

Hope you will post more pictures as you go along .

keep up the good work .

regards

Hi Ryanling,
I have kept a few extra pairs
of Tannoy ICT 6&1/2" drivers.

Its a full range driver and it needs no crossover.

If you are interested in DIY your speaker system with this driver, feel free to contact me at 0124983901, preferred whatsapp.
