The 15's are significantly better than the 10's in this regard, and sound very nice at many different angles

When I get time I will.
At the moment I don't really care. I am just enjoying listening to them.

if your AN15's are the ferrite model, I suspect they would sound nice in either the classic Karlson K15 or a custom K-coupler. AN10-ferrite got some nice needed punch and cone control in a little coupler. There's a number of variables to muck with in a K including front chamber aspect/volume, rear chamber volume, port type and placement, rear lowpass choke area, aperture flare, aperture starting gap.

The drawings for the 10" woofers are wrong.
The holes (cut outs) need to be around 230mm to 232mm not 227mm.
Now I need to try and fix this

Edit: Fixed. No worries mate

Freddi - I'm just wondering something - Do those K designs always sit on the floor? Thats the way I usually see them in pics but just wondering if that is part of the design or if they can work equally well mounted on stands. Your comments would be welcome.

I like the sound of impact, and 15's do that for me.

When you get your 15"s, listen to this:
Autumn in Seattle - Tsuyoshi Yamamoto

When my wife heard that song she said WOW.
The piano is amazing, and when the double bass starts playing, it so close to having the band in your house it is not funny.
When I heard that bass my heart nearly stopped. So clear and full of tone.

I need to start listening to other types of music to really test them out.

I didn't finish the baffles but I am very close. By next weekend they will definitely be finished.

You obviously have not heard them. If they sound this good playing on the floor then imagine what they are going to sound like when I put them in baffles
