Building some bookshelf speakers
 
Hey, I'm Dave and I am trying to build some tiny high efficiency bookshelf speakers. I'm trying to keep them small enough so that I can fit both speakers, my TT, and my old tube amp on top of a dresser. I'm thinking about using these plans http://homepage.mac.com/tlinespeaker...en-0v9-map.pdf . I'm also thinking about throwing some AudioNirvana Super3's in it.

I have a few questions: Are those angled holes for the speaker cones absolutely necessary? How would one go about making them? I'm thinking about putting those lever type wire imputs in the back, to get the wires from the imputs to the speakers themselves, should i just let the wires hang, or attach them to the wall of the speakerbox? Is using plywood good, or would I get better acoustics from using solid wood?

The angles not absolutely necessary, but are really easy to make with a rasp if you don't have a router.

Wire dressing is up to you, and plywood is best.
