I have two identical 5.1 systems that doesn't work (I think the problem in both are the power supply, but I don´t care about that, I'm interesting on reusing the drivers, they are working fine). The pair of 5.1 sets are logitech x-530 models, detailed specs: (https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/5,941-9.html).

I have the idea of reusing the satellites drivers and the subwoofer of each old system, to build a pair of stereo two ways speakers. I want to build two boxes to accommodate the 10 small drivers for mid/high frequencies and the sub to cover the low frequencies. I would buy a pair of two ways passive filters to separate the frequencies (2 ways passive crossovers). I will power the new resultant speakers with a regular 2.0 channels amplifier (38 RMS watts per channel, 4-8 ohms capable).

I have some questions about this project:

1.- how can I wire the 10 small speakers to connect them to the high-pass filter with a total of 4 or 8 ohms resistance? 2.- What point do you recommend for crossing frequencies? 3.- Any cabinet sizes recommendations (I prefer sealed design)? 4.- Do you miss any aspect in my thoughts about this project?

Many thanks!

  • Cabinet sizes are calculated specifically for the drivers and crossover's you intend to use. The "crossing frequencies" ( resisters, capacitors, coils etc. ) are dependent on the drivers specs and the other drivers in the set up and the enclosure. We can not answer these questions for you here. There are several speaker building forums, tutorials and resources on the web. – Alaska Man Apr 17 '20 at 21:36
  • I have my own idea about the crossing point, I have my idea about cabinet size and design. I was asking for a second expert opinion. Of course I know thousands of sites with a enormous amounts of information (who do not?). I was seeking for some advice, an opinion, not just information. – Ignacio Gonzalez Apr 18 '20 at 6:14
  • This is not the place to ask for opinions, second or otherwise. If you have a problem you need to solve and it can be answered here then it is appropriate here. Opinions and discussions should be taken to a forum. Know one can give you the information you want with out knowing 100% of the variables and specs for your project. – Alaska Man Apr 18 '20 at 18:40
