Tweeter is Vifa XT19, mids Focal 5", woofer 12" AW Mivoc

Its meant to be placed in a book shelve fore casual listening and television, music videos etc

Zaphs new 3way looks good

Looked that SB Acoustics has quite same looking 10" woofer than 12" used Zaph 12.3.

SPL difference is 2,4 dB. Could that be conpensated by compensating baffle step a bit more? Zaph has option for reduced BSC in 12.3.

In that way speaker might work closer to walls and in smaller rooms, and could be little smaller.

Sorry to bump an ancient thread, but did you finish this project? If so, how did it turn out?

hey, beginning to look like a speaker, kind of, or maybe off

well, they were supposed to be bookshelf speakers
but I decided not to abandon the true "spirit" of hifi and built a pair of stands
and I can tell you, even without drivers, they are bloddy heavy

well, bloddy many small details to take care of, and still a few remains to be sorted

Great use of material. I love the retro 3 way design, but would love to hear one made with all metal Seas Excel drivers top-to-bottom... That said, has anyone do one with Scan Speak revelator mids & bass in the classic style?
