Had a minor beaktrough just now: I was struggling with the bass reproduction and was starting to wonder if I made a mistake by putting the vents at the rear. The strange thing was that while standing, the bass would be muddy and bloated, but sitting down would cause the bass to be too weak. The culprit: The new salon table with granite table top... Putting two big cushions on it solved the issue completely :-) The bass is now nicely balaced, sitting down or standing up.

Thank you swifty!
I am also about to do my first DIY speakers and have also decided on pensil 10.2!
You've provided some good inspiration there.

Swifty,

Where is the table located relative to your speakers?

Zman,

The table is located about 1.5 meters in front of and exactly in the middle of the two speakers. It sits between the listenener and the speakers.

Don't be scared of solid wood, I have a pair of speakers from the 70's in solid wood, and it basicaly still looks as good as the day it was made.

I thought solid wood was generally frowned upon in speaker building due to resonant properties..?

interesting, this opens up ideas for future projects. i may have misinterpreted a few conversations on the boards. it'd be nice not to have to veneer some of these builds. thanks!
