It shouldn't matter that the vents are now "blunt"

the bevel on the front of the "Ken" style enclosures through which the original ports exited is more intended for reduction of edge diffraction for the front mounted driver

Reply to posts 448 and 449, lowest first:

I thought on seeing 'we could stand a few more betas' - I can help here, I can get all the bits easlily, I know people in 'pro' audio', can get these tested in their intended application and as some guy (JKRO) enjoys them in a home setting, why not offer my services and ears to help make something good be better AND learn a bunch in the process.
And get a pair of new speakers, which I need.
I signed the form and the drawings came, so I considered myself part of a team to aid development as I will bring more than one opinion in the end.
I read in another thread a post by yourself that 'the only other build has stalled' and further on in said noted that there was no further response from the 'other builder', if you were contacted in private by the person I do not know, but I with my high standards / morals feel it correct to inform all as to what's going on, I do not wish to be seen as a 'flake'.

That was a fib - maybe you are dis-pleased, but the 'numpty' don't know that and nor do I.
I can understand why you might be, but hope that you would not.

Yes, finding the way to do things can take some thrashing out, the engineer I first started to apprentice under would tell me every day before before work commenced 'if you think every way through and it takes you a month, and you do it right first time, your time is not wasted'.
You found an elegant and simple solution 'applauds'

JKRO,
Try moving your Em's towards the corners 1ft at a time, some times hard in the angle works wonders, other times room nodes get so excited speakers can sound like mud, this could / might be offset by positioning them say - 1ft from the rear wall and 2ft in from the side.
I had time with a pair of Harbeth HL2's,once in the right place, the room stopped existing, six inches either side of 'ideal' and I might have well been listening to a single ear bud!
These may be hard to shift about, but it could be worth the effort, the very least you learn a bit about 'speaker positioning - always a good thing.

Dave

This is how you move big speakers! I think his room may be a touch small thou.

Look at his other videos - I'm addicted to this channel - so many HUGE JBL's!!

May the gods of speaker building smile down upon you and make numpty carpenters turn up early with perfectly cut boards
