Mounting the speakers:

Two in series, that would give 8 ohms:

Finished, except the finish:

A couple of taps with hammer later I'm able to listen to the result.

The first picture was taken 17:22:48 and the last 18:03:46.
I think that it was FAST.

Mount two elements in the back and you got dipole or bipole.
Mount elements on all sides and you got an omnipole.
Mount four in a row, repeat the above.
Replace the MDF with some arctic birch plywood, plastic in any color or even glass.
Make them with black profiles.

The possibilities are endless.

Nope, they will end up as home theater satelite speakers, computer speakers, kitchen speakers...

Actully, I took no risk. This is plan B from the beginning.
And I knew that they could be resold at a low loss, having bought that many.

So how do they sound in this configuration?
In fact, excellent.
Even with only one side built, it fills the room with a soundstage matching that of my full range ribbons.

I will measure them to see if they need any EQ and to figure out if the elements are at their optimum distance.

Ingenious!

Is that a standard extrusion? If so, what is it originally meant for?

I might try and get some locally - could be good fun!

Yes, it is standard extrusion (thank you for that word).
I got it from my local Bauhaus shop. There's even corner pieces and other specials.
It is normally used to build utility boxes.
