You are like a gift from heaven above Leon. I've just bought pair of FE166En and was sad to find that MJK ML TQWT is not proper for them. But your project looks very promising. Could you show sound absorbent placement inside enclosure? Or any words about it ?

After burn-in most people don't use any absorbent at all!!
Wich means that the design is okee!!
During burn-in time only the Cc is slightly damped with 3 or 4 mm wool felt on 3 sides.
If you have a very reflective room you can ad small amount of poly fill in the first 5cm in the centre of the throath.
Very easy to reach and experiment with by removing the full range speaker.

My advice is to keep building and continue trying to maximize your musical enjoyment by trying different designs. I think you will find there is more than one truth and the journey is worthwhile. Consider yourself lucky to have friends to help you build, listen and critique the projects you choose.

So true Zilla, a never ending journey!!
I do build and try a lot and don't publish everything I discover but sometimes.............
this design is really amazing.
Heard it in very different rooms, sizes , reflective etc.
THEY DOMINATE THE ROOM and sound always impressive!!
Once heard depth in the soundstage sitting right of the right speaker!!
Listened to Pink Floyd, Norah Jones , Miles Davis , Kari Bremnes , Foo Fighters etc.
So this was one design I wanted to share with everybody else!!

To make them more listenable during the burn-in stage ; but some people leave them on and go away for the weekend= another possibility!

Do you have a picture right before do you close the enclosure? The bottom of the enclosure intentionally is with 1 mm shorter? The thickness of the stuff is 18mm?
