What is a 3-way speaker? 

There are many types of speakers out there, and each one has a different level of performance from each other. Basically, there is three main speaker type. These are full-range speakers, two-way, and three-way in which the 3-way speaker is the biggest among all types. 

3-way speakers have three drivers, woofer, midrange, and a tweeter. This type of speaker gives a full bass, which many people preferred to use. 

Buying all the components

Before heading on, the first step, whatever type of speaker you would like to make is to buy all the necessary components. There are available kits in the market which give more convenience but, if you love to buy each part on your own, it is also a good idea. 

Choosing out drivers 

Drivers are available in online or in audio store local. In choosing this component, consider the following: 

  • RMS (Power Handling)
  • Sensitivity
  • Price
  • Frequency range
  • Vented volume 

Put in mind that the one responsible for how loud your speaker can be is sensitivity and power handling. Always choose a driver that will give an overlapping frequency. This will enable your speaker to cover a large spectrum of frequency. 

Choosing the right box option 

Since you will be making a speaker box, always choose a box in good quality. If you really love to make your own box, of course, you can. On the other hand, there are also pre-made boxes available in stores. They are made with plywood and stapled together. Some of these boxes are unfinished while there are also finished ones. Either way, always choose the one with good quality and, most of all, durability. 

Choosing the right shape 

Will shape matter? Apparently, yes! In fact, the shape of your box influences the effects of the speaker because of vibrations as well as the spikes of frequency. Experts recommended spheres, but it is not easy to make, especially if you’re not a pro in making it. If you are just learning in making speaker boxes, the good thumb of rule is to avoid making a perfect cube box. 

Additional tips

Before buying the components of your speaker, always get your head straight what you really want. Also, don’t forget to test the component before setting it up to make sure that they are working properly and well. 

Setting up 

Making your own 3-way speaker is not a highly difficult task, but it might become complicated at times. Once you have now your own box and your desired size and shape, you can now set it up, wire them together and test. You can do this process in less than a day—the only time-consuming part of the whole process in choosing the basic components. 

In the end, you can always make your own great 3-way speaker. You don’t need to become highly scientific, though. Listening and adjusting will help you come up with the best so far.
