I would think that gluing the back on would increase rigidity, push panel resonances up and gain you some advantage.

I'm thinking of those Onken type, slightly trapezoidal shaped cabs for the 10.2's
but maybe a pair of Pencils too.
Any thoughts, Dave?

Hi Scott,

If don't use of foam in the cabinets, use longer white poly cotton upto the top cabinet?

Thanks,
Tony.

Just for reference, I would recommended avoiding the use of foam in these cabinets.

That's what it's designed for. Just be careful it doesn't get between the cone & the motor assembly.

Do you have any closeups of the emblem? I can't really make it out in the pics.

Listened to Katrine Madsen's "I'll keep you satisfied", the vocal, electric guitar and drum were very clear with lots of details. Paper cone and cap made the vocal smoother and warmer. Bass is remarkable for such small sized full range driver. Pensil 6 should be very good for playing in the room areas of 100-120 square feet.
