Default Peacock..

@xrk971
I did the 20" and the depth is 4". The bass is quite unbelievable for the size.
@Dave
True. That's what my wife said too. So planning to move it to another wall!!
One small correction though, that is paint, not wallpaper.

Later
Peace
Jetlag

So I built the twin to this one:
Click the image to open in full size.
but tilted them like Switters. They are now my computer speakers together with a sub.
The E60 sounds great but had to be sealed by the long side of the driver as it bulged there, when I swept the speaker slowly from 50 to 400 Hz I heard distinctive air leakage at certain frequencies.
Also a loose segment in one horn´s end was revealed by the sweep.

Next step is to build some HT satellites. Just need to get them more Waffy.

They don´t look so nice right now as they got smudged by the black silicone sealant.
They will end up like Switters´s eventually, I hope.

It cannot be built until it is designed.

Hi solhaga,
I had the same problem, I used vinyl glue to seal the back panel and this leaved some leakage. I tried to seal them pouring some glue from the horn mouth and then rotating the cabinet to let it flow along the corners formed by the plywood and the foamcore board.

In my experience vinyl glue is too liquid, it's easily absorbed by wood and "shrink" too much when drying. Next build I'll try a more dense glue.
