the speakers look great !!! Hope they sound the same. Tweeter and bass look fine are you getting mids without any backbox? Plenty CF for the low end and then i see the mag for the mids floating in thin air.

Thanks for your kind comments! Yes, they sound better than they look. The mids are a dipole configuration so they radiate towards the front and the back. The speakers have a very deep soundstage and image really well. The advantage to this design is that it’s free of any boxy resonance, so the mids actually sound very clean and detailed.

Ok! That answers it. I was just about to ask about cancellation. Any brand preference for the drivers?

Great job!

The 10” woofers are Vifa’s, the mids are 7” Scan Speak Revelators and the ribbon tweeters are from Fountek. This is the first time I’ve had ribbon tweeters and I like them a lot…detailed, but also easy to listen too, not harsh at all.

Is this your own design, or can a complete audio noob get the details somewhere? I like the look, I think it says the designer knew what he was after and matched the drivers to the design.

The design was mostly my idea, but I had Rick Craig from Selah Audio actually create the crossover and help with driver selection. Rick is very knowledgeable and easy to work with. I would work with him again.

Wow, these are great… how do you like them by now? have they settled in and “grown up” into your acoustic environment well? It looks like a pretty dedicated theater room- is it? (I mean mostly, closed off to provide good in-room gain in the low-end) And, is that a sub in the corner? what kind of setup is that?

Although I have enjoyed doing a couple box projects and some other things, I too am largely continuing in woodworking to build a higher-end set of speakers than I could afford to buy! I have purchased the drivers to build a set of statements, and am sadly still short of time/space/money/finalized plans to build a nice set of hardwood cabinets…

Looks good- inspiring!
