I have several large sheets of foamcore and a few pair of little fullrange drivers, like Fountek and Vifa. Might make a fun weekend project.

Cool clips, thanks. That's the mini? Certainly no lack of lower mids, and a good tonal balance.

Yes, that is the all foam core mini. Keep in mind that it is flat on the floor, weighs as much as air and some paper, and has a 3.5 inch driver. It sounds even better when properly installed on a wall at proper ear height. I was going to say "hung" on a wall but Cal gave grief the last time I used that choice of word.
Thanks for listening..

It is a perfect weekend project, especially now that you have the foam and drivers. Just cut and glue now... Which Vifa driver do you have?

I have a pair of the little Vifa TC9FD18-08. Suitable for the 20" Cornu, perhaps?

That is what I used for the 20 in mini and what you heard in the clips. That is a great little driver.
I wish I bought them by the dozen...

Great! Should I use the PDF that Planet 10 made scaled to 20"? What depth did you use?

Yes, scale the plan from Planet10. I used 2 and 3/8ths inch but Surface Tension used 2.5 in and it worked too. My 20 incher, I actually hand drew my curves based on plan from Sebastien and I added sharp corners internally.
