Seal is one thing, rigidly attached to the rest of the box is another.

Even though not rigidly attached, it would probably absorb vibration like the earthquake dampers on vulnerable buildings maybe.

Default SUCCESS!!!

Guys I am very happy to report that I am a very satisfied and happy customer

Last night I added another 20g acousta stuff behind the driver as an attempt to prevent reflections of waves coming back through the cone. I also moved the speaker to the back wall and I was in heaven!

I couldn't believe these speakers could re produce such wonderfully full, warm, clear, amazing, well balanced, enjoyable music.

I just couldn't stop listening. I found myself wanting to hear more and more different genres of music I have in my collection to see If I can fault them but I couldn't. Yes they do acoustic and female voice best in my case but rock and jazz and whatever else I had time for last night was brilliantly presented.

The quality of base these beautiful little things are capable of is just jaw dropping good. No need for a sub.

By 1 'o clock this morning I had to force myself to switch off and go to bed but I did it with a grin on my face.

I want to thank everyone on this forum for their expertise and help and for the masters that put this design together. In particular Dave (Planet10HiFi)

Thank you very much for such a great design and making it available as a DIY project!

Very nice!

Is it still being held together with sticky tack?

Thanks, yes, sticky tac is doing a great job! I can now move on and have the panels glued and then the big work starts with the finishing.

Hello, first post and if any of my questions are redundant, misposted ,or based in ignorance I apologize in advance.
I assume corner loading affects only (or primarily) the output of the horn and not the driver, if so what frequencies are affected?
I ask this because I am hoping to maximize the sensitivity up to 500 - 1000hz.
And then again above 8kz or so.

What should I expect if I loaded the front of the driver with a L'Cleach flare?

Lastly, I saw that the Tang Bang bamboo cones W4 1320s worked in a FH Mk3
The W4 1337 have similar specs would these work and give the extra SPL above 8kz that I think I want?

Thanks in advance.
Charles
