I've been toying around with the idea of getting a floor standing DIY speaker kit like the Parts Express TriTrix MTM TL kit: https://www.parts-express.com/tritrix-mtm-tl-tower-speaker-components-and-cabinet-kit-pair--300-702

$299 for a pair of speakers ain't bad at all and they seem to get good reviews.  Does anybody have any experience with either building or using these speakers for playback?  Any suggestions for other kits to look at?

ive built these

i use them for my PC playback system. i had never used a soldering iron before doing it. I found that the most challenging as i know wood working etc but overall it was easy with the right clamps for gluing the cabinets.

Do you have experience with the Philharmonic?  They don't have much in the way of details on that page.  Looking at the kit contents it looks like it's just for the cabinet, no speakers or crossover are even mentioned.  It also doesn't mention the dimensions of the assembled unit.

Never mind, wasn't thinking clearly earlier and neglected to see that you had two links there.  $925 for speakers and $330 for cabinets is a bit more than what I was looking for, though I'm sure they'd sound awesome.

These are end-game level speakers.  Buy once cry once.
