    I want new speakers for my home stereo, would like a pair of 3-way floor speakers with an 8'' or 10'' woofer, but not dead set on it. Anyway, I was wondering about building my own. What expertise is needed for that, where would I get supplies, how much would it cost, etc?

    if you are good at woodworking then just build a cabinet to the specs of the diff speakers, get a good crossover and check out partsexpress.com. It's prob better to just buy some speakers though :hs:

    Probably true, but I think it'd be fun to build some speakers.

    Very durable, its treated. I have a loudspeaker with the 6.5" version of that woofer, and once spilled a bit of water on it and it didnt affect it.

    Some of the most expensive woofers and midwoofers these days have paper or paper composite cones.

    Also, most prosound speakers (that are used in dirty clubs and outdoors) have paper cones, many arent even treated.
