i agree, there's a tendency for diy to make the cabinets from solid wood

Do u think this is the best combination, dave?


even the curve ones, the stacked planks and cut to curve and routed curve inside , that's alots of material waste.

And i don't think it uses the material in its best direction.

Although i know VANDERSTEEN REFERENCE uses this method for their midrange/woofer and tweeter

I guess better way to do it, is bend the wood or plywood and make a frame for the front and rear baffle.

what do u think dave?

That 'two way' alpair with one of those 'super tweeters' on top should make a great sounding system IMHO.

Wonder how something like that would compare to 70 and 80 bookshelf style AR, ADS, Cizek, etc...

I want a set!
