The biggest difference is probably the lack of cabinet resonances in the lower midrange region.

I was just listening to some Paul Carrack and I noticed the voice is much "cleaner" than before. I haven't run any sine sweeps yet with these cabinets, but I remember I had some nasty action at ~200Hz with the old cabinets.

Guys, I need som help now.
I was glueing the Oy speakers over night and when I was loosening the clamps today one of the spacers had stuck to the baffle. I tried to bend it loose with my hands but I couldn't. Had to use a hammer to knock it away and it brought part of the baffle with it.

What should I do? Try to peel the missing part off the oak block with a razorblade and if it works try to glue it back in place?

Bondo?

Well, I used a sharp carpetknife and managed to peel off the birchply bit from the oak. I will see if I can glue it back to place to fill up the hole a bit. I try to repair it as good as I can and then I'll see if I will veener or paint them.

At least you know your glue is strong! Kind of hard to tell just how big the damaged area is but it looks like there is not much figure there so may be easy to patch if you have some spare. If you're careful it probably wouldn't be noticeable to anyone but you. I have a little router guide that makes perfect patches easily so might be an opportunity to buy a tool!

How do you mean? Like routing out a bit and then put a patch in the routed hole? Might work if I get it done right, but I'd most likely have to ask somebody more experience. I might contact the guy who did the 45 degree cuts on the dMar-Kel70T speakers and see if he can do something.

And yes, the glue is really really strong

But I have had the speaker standing in my room now and it is not so very visible now and I haven't done anything to it yet. There's still some darker pieces of oak there which I will remove. I will try the glue/bondo option first. If I'm not satisfied I will try an inlay and if nothing works I will either let it be or paint them.
