    That seems like a decent deal. A good base for upgraded X-overs, new tweeters...

    The custom woodwork is 1st class. If and when I get a set of 10's I will try an inductor on one of the MWs just like I did for the TMM project. It got rid of the lobing. Kudos.

    Still going strong. I never added the screens, just don't want to cover up the wood!

    So I'm thinking about selling these clone M10's to fund my next project. Anyone interested. Not sure of a price. I know I have more than $800 in parts, wood... Not including labor which is a contribution for most of my projects.

    This was one of my favorite builds to read about, and I am still amazed at the wood work. I have no idea on a price. 10's get less love. :/ Others would know more.

    I would be really intrigued see what these would be like converted to SDA's. A crossover from a CRS / 2B? would be needed and I think new drivers as well. Someone else may know more about the cabinet size and how the PR would react. I don't recall if the 10 and CRS share that as well. That may bring new life to these for you, and more interest if you decide to sell them.

    It's been done. A 2A or 86' CRS+ Crossover will work with the existing drivers. The 2B/87-89' CRS+ crossovers will work also, but you'll need two MW6511 dimensional woofers.
