From a recent rebuild of two pairs of KefKit3 have the following orphans;
Low = B139 SP1044
Mid = B110 SP1003
High = T27 SP1032
Cross Over = DN12 SP1004

I have had one pair of KefKit3's for many years, the other pair was a more recent acquisition. They are mostly used for stereo and the odd home cinema experience. I have a large and potent sub woofer and an unsuitable centre speaker which simply doesn't match the front and rear pairs.

I was considering turning the orphans into a centre speaker, thereby giving 5 equal channels. I have no spare cabinet, so I would need to make one. The other speakers are in 93 litre cabinets so I thought it would be logical to size the centre speaker to 93 litres as well. To fit the available space, this would mean dimensions something like;
Height = 450 mm
Width = 700 mm
Depth = 370 mm

Any input would be greatly appreciated, particularly the driver and vent orientation.

Regards
Gary
