Yeah, those do look cool. Are they firing up and down? I too think omni is the way to go.

Have You finally completed them?
Hello graaf!

I have been struggling with myself some time whether I should find the bass too slim or not. Alternatives I have considered were bass drivers with higher sensitivity, bi-amping, or going towards a satellite system plus bass horn. I tended towards liking the tonal balance better when I had my head directly between the speakers close to the wall. Today I measured this position and found the bass objectively too thick. So I have desided to finally build it the way it is, because this is objectively more correct. I know itīt a shame to still listen with the prototypes after such a long time, but I swear Iīll have the final enclosures ready in a week.
To my shame a picture of a prototype:

Go to htguide.com and type jon speaker article and get the extensive article written by john marsh. It outlines his methodology in designing a speaker and discusses many issues. I think some of the things he discusses there will be helpful to you.


edit: that was supposed to read "type jon speaker article in the search"
