My band needed some small monitors, I had some some speakers so... bought some wood, jacks, wire... I am still waiting on the tweeters. I did a real slipshot job as usual, but sheesh it's fun. I should find a talkwoodshop.com site. So they are 8" (at some point with a tweeter crossed at 2khz), in a 1/2' box with 2 jacks for parallel connecting... I even put casters on for the heck of it. Since I have a big two inch hole in the top they are sounding really bassy right now. I am hoping that when I plug that with the tweeter it will give me a nice, compact, full range monitor for my garage practices. If not... there is always my next project!
