  • New Here. Going to attempt an Epique Build.

    Like the title says, I’m going to try and build my first set of speakers. My current set-up is basically nothing. I have been using a Jabra Soulmate Bluetooth speaker for almost 10 years and it’s time to upgrade. 

    This all started at Best Buy, I was going to snag a receiver and set of speakers for about $700. I hadn’t read any reviews or shopped around because anything would have been better than nothing. My phone is my only radio other than what’s in my truck. I thought having a stereo in the house would be fun as my kids are getting more into music (boy 11, girl 8). Anyway, back to Best Buy. I couldn’t close the deal on the set-up they had because it honestly sounded terrible. The speakers sounded like they were struggling to produce sounds that weren’t painful to listen to. There had to be a better way. 

    This began my internet search for “top bookshelf speakers”. Wow, big mistake. 400 YouTube video’s later, and I’m here. 

    My uneducated and misguided plan is the following:

    Dayton Audio HTA100BT tube amplifier – Because I like the way it looks. 

    For the speakers:

    Dayton Audio Epique E180HE-44 7″ – Because I figure go big or go home right!

    Dayton Audio Peerless DA25TX00-08 Tweeter – Because it was recommended in Toid’s links in a video. 

    That’s as far as I can go on my own. The rest I’m going to need a little help with, unless I’m already in trouble.
