Default DIY "H" section/project/toy/time waster.

Assuming two flat panel speakers (5mm foam core) - 52x64 rough hexagonal , 44cm apart...

Would the resulting construction be capable of sounding like this...

Those Ikea bowls at 20cm are about the right size for the cockpit section too....

OK, so 2xIkea Blanda Matt bowls acquired.
(ubiquitous so not gonna link to them).

hex panels (wings/radiators/foils whatever) or whatever shapes cut out of 5mm FCB.

40/43mm 1.5" sink/basin drain waste should suffice as the basis for the struts.

2x25mm exciters incoming from Parts-Express.

Unsure yet as to 2-3 things...

How exactly to attach the exciters to the struts... I guess with sufficient wadding and glue they can be stuck in the ends of the pipe...

Whether to "frame" the hex panels to support them. I don't know if letting the exciter coil support them is a good idea.

The hex panels are curved/warped, so how to flatten them out again. Hold them down and dilute PVA them?

If all goes to plan I have a spare class D amp and a Chromecast Audio to install in the main body.
