Build speakers and acoustic tips

After reading many info on custom build speaker setup (just reading!), if I ever start the path of building diy speakers for stereo listening, I'd start with these specifications:
  • room: 400 x 300 x 250 (L x W x H)
  • frequency responce: 50 Hz - 35 kHz, +/- 3dB
  • nominal power: at least 50 W (RMS) / 4-8 ohms
  • sensitivity/efficiency: min. 90 dB / 1W/m
I choose the following:
- 2-way design
- 2 x bass Vifa MG18 (DIN 60 W, 86.5 dB, 8 ohms)
- tweeter Vifa XT25 (flat 1kHz to 40kHz, DIN 140W, 91.5 dB, 4 ohms)
