Finished a couple of speakers in the last few weeks, this one was the most interesting of the two. The front is hard maple with inserts of red oak and walnut, no stain, just many coats of poly.. The base of the cab is 0.75 MDF.

Mistake #1, if you are going to make inserts like this off center, make them far enough off center that it looks intentional.

But the do sound nice, Drivers are all HiVi, crossovers are custom.

Very nice! I have been itching to do a pair of custom speakers myself, and I think I might draw off of your design. How do you like the HiVis? I’m going to guess that you got them from Parts express.

Gman, yup, from Those were a closeout from a couple of years ago, got them for $10 a PAIR! There are some great designs out there, and I would start with an established design, something like Overnight Sensations (very similar to my other post) Tritrix, or any one of about a dozen others. That will guarantee you good sound, and you can concentrate on making them look good. Subwoofers on the other hand, can be done well by anyone with a little care and time.
