Overnight Sensations Build Log

My first DIY speaker project was this pair of small bookshelf speakers designed by Paul Carmody called "Overnight Sensations." Not having much experience with this before, they were hardly done overnight. After about 20-25 hours of work spread over a month, I managed to complete the speakers to my satisfaction.

As I worked, I compiled a build log documenting all the steps I took to complete these guys. You can find the log here: Overnight Sensations Build Log.

They sound fantastic, and have some surprising output for such small speakers. They image extremely well (Almost too well. It's a little unnerving sometimes), and have an impressive bottom end. Since I had a lot of fun making these, I've decided to start work on a new custom subwoofer (or 2). I'll detail that process in future posts.
