I noticed MCM Electronics has their 10" Pro woofer (#55-1740) on sale for $15.99. This is almost a drop-in replacement for the Eminence Alpha 10 that's used in the Two Pi Tower speakers. Being unable to resist a sale I ordered a pair, so now what do I do with them? The logical choice would be to build a Two Pi Tower clone using the same Vifa DX25 tweeter, which I can do for about $200 to $250 including enclosure materials and everything that goes inside. The Two Pi tower is large (46X16X13), so it has a low WAF, but the size buys you quite a bit of efficiency and bass extension. With the MCM woofer the sensitivity will be about 94dB, and the first order crossover will make it reasonably tube friendly.

So my question is, would anybody in the Houston area be interested in a pair of these speakers? If I have a taker I'll build the enclosure and let you install the drivers, build the crossovers, and apply whatever finish you want. The price will be my actual cost, and I'm certain it won't exceed $250. I just had the saw blade sharpened, so I have to cut some wood or mdf with it. :)

Great looking shop Fred. If I was in the area I would be interested in a pair.
Cheers
