After 20 years of faithful service from my B&W 804 and HTM speakers, I got the itch and was on the hunt for something new. I visited various brick and mortar stores, auditioned Ascend Acoustic Sierra towers with RAAL tweeters and SVS Ultra Towers in my room, but the B&Ws held their own so I decided to keep them. After months of additional research, the 893 kits caught my eye and I took a shot at the center kit along with the flat pack with XO board from Matt. Since the flat packs are cut so well, using caulk to seal the seams isn't truly necessary, but I did it anyway as a precaution. Afterwards I lined the interior walls with two layers of poly fill batting and mounted the XO to one of the side walls. Next steps I glued and mounted the front baffle, drilled holes for the speaker terminals, gave it a few coats of Duratex and allowed it to dry before connecting and mounting the drivers. After using the Restore 4X on my DIY sub, I'm thinking of redoing the center channel with the Restore 4X or building a new cabinet and going with a veneer. Decisions... decisions... but here are the photos during the build process. After everything was complete, I ran DIRAC on my XMC-1, sat back and listened... and listened... and listened. The B&Ws still have a strong hold onto my soul, but the 893 Center kit certainly won't be my last dive into DIY speakers. I'm going to move the B&Ws into my home office and build a set of 893s as ported towers to complete the DIY HT speaker system.
