DIY Speakers Part 2.
Done with them for now. Got a Tripath TA2020-based Chinese (Lepai) amp off eBay to use with these. Should get here in a couple of weeks. I chose this amp because: 1, The amplifier chip itself it worthy to be one of the 25 chips that shook the world according to IEEE Spectrum. 2, There is a thread on diyAudio detailing several all-around improvement mods for this particular amp. But most people seem to agree that it sound at least "pretty good" even without them (Though that certainly won't stop me from doing them). 3, It was cheap ($20 shipped)
Should be interesting to compare to the TDA2004 board I used for testing. Which I could describe in one word as: unspectacular.
