StigErik, are you running the TPL upside down to keep the diaphragm in place with no chance of it sliding out. That's the only issue for me with leaving the back cover off. It has that little lip to hold it in there.

You mean with the terminals on the top? Yes, I noticed that. However, with a tight enough baffle cutout it wont come out ayway.

Currently, the mid and tweeter is centered 75 cm (30") and 99 cm (39") above the floor. We will put the tweeter and the midrange closer together, and lower the tweeter slightly to 95 cm to get it down to ear-height (to my ears at least).

I am also thinking of building a second prototype with a more refined shape. This pineboad version we have now sure sound better than it looks.... a combination of nice looks and great sound wont hurt!

I'll have to check with the bossman. Been almost a year since we ordered them.

Ok people, we want some help with the looks of this thing! The main problem is that the 21" woofer is big... very big. The speaker need to be wide, as the bottom at least.

We have made a simple drawing of two possible solutions. Its important for us to keep the design relatively simple to manufacture, thats why there are no fancy shapes.

Please let me know what you think, and any suggestions are welcome!

The magicians hat is my favorit too.

WRT the right proposal: Inevitably someones wife will ask for a top plate to put some plants on.
