Very creative, imaginative, and Avant-garde, good job!

Does the pedestal have an internal woofer or something? I notice what looks to be a port on the back of it, but on the bottom of the cello are only binding posts, so not for the cello part of the design etc ?.

It's one thing to have an idea but it's quite another to execute it so elegantly. Inspiring.

Ah yes, I thought maybe he had some kind of bandpass thing going on with the pedestal.. Would be a great place to add a sub/low frequency helper woofer if desired etc

The pedestal doesn`t have any audible function at the moment, possibly later on. The hole on the back of it is just for the external wire. The cello body has an appropriate bookshelf reflex cabinet within.

This is the 2nd generation anyway, the 1st (on the pictures) didn`t work properly.

The 3rd will be maybe a back loaded horn type, I will build the cello body and the pedestal together.

And the 4th gen (if there will be any ) will be a multi-way system. Maybe...
