I'd calculate it, using Russian version of John Ratter's xls file.
next time I'll tuning it higher - to 70hz and will use it with subwoofer. furthermore I will install tweeter.
thank you for your opinion about finish. it's my first hand not marble coating.

Hi,

check out the articles here :

By implementing a filter, cutting back the midrange, you can improve treble.

Yes, that finish is very impressive. Wish I could do them like that.

I think this might be why you're finding the response a bit iffy. MathCad predicted response for that enclosure, using the SP-200X. I damped it down a bit with stuffing in the first half of the line. Nothing you can do about the big hole though. Pretty good for a Weems-based pipe though. Obviously the Monacor mates well to the Weems calculations.

it's should be, but I think 200 Hz hole are smooth out by damping material inside.
another trobles - hump from 7k to 10kHz. I'm just hear this and it's annoy me.

Yes, the SP200 is a bit hot across this region. Short of mechanical modifications, you'll need a filer to bring it into line a bit. You can reduce the hole to only 15db by stuffing the first half of the line with 1lb ft^3 of Dacron or similar.
