If you will be careful in handling not to accidentally short the amp's (+) & (-) you can't do any other hard damage I guess.

Now they are playing after some sweat and tears! I got no sound at first from the left speaker and after some checking I found the error to be no contact with the terminals on the amplifier . They are playing beatiful but at very low volume to spare the neigbours. But everyting seems fine!

Yes I will add that later, but that is the easy part! And I have to make the filling more adapted to what is best and so on.

Some impressions after a couple of days playing:
The tweeter is better than my performa speakers, no doubt about that.
I suspected this all the time and it was true. The bass performance is still a little withdrawn but is getting better the more I play, and I have just done a simple job so far with damping/filling and it is not even 100% sealed yet. It plays very pure and natural. I can surely hear a great potential in these speakers and I am sure it will be very good when everything is in place. I am very happy I made the speakers and very thankful to Salas great job with this speaker!

No it is on the floor tilted upwards to my ears, standing on some bubble plastic.
