managed a few more details

speaker terminals
and felt for mounting drivers
not shown, but there's also felt on woofer chassis
quite tedious work, more than expected

small changes
mid series inductor increased from 0.39mH to 0.5mH
and a zobel in paralel
well, so far I have just used what I could find in waste parts bin
so I would think there's still room for improvements

it also helped to mount all driver chassis screws
next to come, diy ribbon tweeter on top

listening distance less than 2meter
speakers 1meter apart
that is tough conditions
and it certainly is a monitor
controlled and precise, and dynamic

playing classical music....BIG positive surprice
and that really was a surprice

btw, finally got the chance to use my Portasol gas iron
and it is a really sweet tool
hard to imagine a (diy)life without it now

Looks nice! I like the use of the cardboard to break up the midrange enclosure volume, how effective would you say it is? What Focal driver is that?
