Hey folks- just doing some brainstorming on a possible project, wondering what cabinets I might want to be on the lookout for to employ some particular drivers. I love the sound I get from my L110s (stock except for some Vifa 10" woofers, I garbage-picked the boxes and they were woofer-less), so if I could end up with a result close to them I'd be happy.

I've got a line on some 2213Hs 12"s in decent shape, same guy has an LE5-12 mid.

I've got a brand new in-box LE5-12 mid, a brand new in-box 035Ti tweeter, and six brand new tweeters from Yamaha NS-10M's.

Thought is to e-bay the Yamahas (and some other stuff) to pay for the 2213s & LE5-12 and maybe an additional 035Ti, or keep some of the Yamahas if they'd behave nicely with these other drivers. What, if any, boxes/x-overs would these drop into easily? Aesthetics don't have to be a concern, it's likely that I could flush-mount them & only have to fabricate a grille & frame.

Any ideas, or is this a waste of time?

Thanks, and this is all your fault anyway;) ,

I had gotten some suggestions to look towards L100 cabs for these components, so now with the woofs and mids in hand, cabs & x-overs in my sights, any suggestions for tweeters? I've got a new 035ti, and have heard them in 4408s (didn't love or hate them, but all 5 were blown when I acquired the 5 4408s I had, which either means they're fragile or the former owner was a knucklehead). Love the tweeters in my 4333s (2405s?) and L110s (033?), any other directions you folks would recommend? Anyone know if the 035ti would be a direct-fit replacement?

Thanks in advance,

According to Giskard- the 033 can handle more power but has a larger moving mass vs the 066 which is quicker but should be driven more carefully. I love the 066- but good luck getting a pair though. I'm SOL with a bad 066 now....I say if you can find them at a reasonable price- jump on it (or direct me to them!!) :D .

I abandoned my EN3 project, but the drivers you are planning would be fantastic with these cabs, I remember seeing a set of L65 cabs somewhere which would work great too. Here's a link to the EN3's. http://www.oldhifi.com/jblln3.jpg

A number of tweeters will work, but the 033 would be as good as any.

Turns out the guy I sold five 4408s to still has three spare intermittent 035tis, and is willing to give me back one- so, if I remember correctly, it was about $55 to repair one, and that would get me all the drivers I need. We'll see how this shakes down, thanks for the advice.

Well, send them cabs out here, and I'll make something killer outta them.

L200t3 or Array, maybe.

Baffle's replaceable, looks like.

Possibilities are endless.

3 cuft. and LE14H-3. We start at the leading edge here.... :thmbsup:
