That doesn't mean they're doing it perfectly (it would appear they aren't).

Yes. The more you can do to minimise reflections / sharp edges, the better.

Here is Mark's recommendation.

We take it a bit further and put a full 45 degrees instead of a curve. This directs any energy to the back of the box.

I would get the file out. I'm in contact with Tony, i'll mention it.

The chamfer I did is a full 45 degrees. What I will do is listen to them as they are now and decide from there if I will decrease the "cilinder". Thanks for the guidance!

Swifty, I hate to point this out at this point, but you have a severe grain conflict. Wood expands and contracts seasonally with humidity across the grain but not in length. Your sides are going to want to get taller, but your fronts and back won't. This movement can not be stopped. Hope for the best.........

Hi Evan,

I know :-)

I went for this construction because I just like the way this looks. I am not totally ignorant however, so I sealed the wood completely inside and out. Time will tell if that's enough...

Swifty, I didn't mean to sound negative, but wood is my thing. Yes sealing the cabinet will help a lot and most likely the glue will allow the sides to creep up and down as they want to.

Done! First impressions (listening to Kind Of Blue by Miles Davis): Very musical. The imaging is just so good! I cannot believe how complete the sound is. I am not missing a tweeter for instance. Lows are articulate and controlled. I will post updates on the sound as the speakers break in ut they sound better than the Tannoy D300 they replace already.
