Of course. My bad. Front exit. This is why I just build.

Mark insisted on the radius carrying over from his original Pensil.

Craig, have you measured the frequency response of the Pencils?

No, I do not have the equipment to do so.

First of all, very nice build!
Tell me..would you have gone with the standard Pensil enclosure even if you had a 16.5 x 16.5 listening room, like i do?
This will be my first DIY speaker and i'm torn between the Std. and SuperPensil. Still I'd like to get as many feedbacks as possible.
Is it really possible to get a mid-bass dip with the SuperPensil? Some guy said he had listened to the A12P in a SuperPensil enclosure and that the sound was incredibly balanced.
Any experience from any of you guys with the SuperPensil enclosure?

Thanks
Charles

Nice Build! What wire did you use to connect the drivers to the posts? Did you use any PolyFill?
