Nice, so we got positive news. The stuffing looks OK as in the original for one. I am inclined to think that when that room is going to get a carpet and more furniture, plus seeing there is space to move even further towards the front wall (the wall behind the speakers), maybe you will be able not to resort to crossover tweaks. Especially after more elasticity sets in the woofer surrounds, its a very fresh build. Looks fine in proportion to the room by the way. Not bad at all for a first time builder.

Thanks for the kind words Salas! Yes it will be fine in the end I think, I have a few thoughts about the stuffing but that is a later matter since I think I will let these "new borns" play as much as possible now to break in fully.

Don't let them stand more than ~1m tall from top to floor when on final stands, so to have a good axis height when seated on a sofa. You can make some tests when in comfortable stance on your particular sofa and best height for you by listening to voice and piano.

Right now the stands are 35 cm making the whole 106 cm high. But up to the middle of the tweeter it is 99cm. I think a shortening of about 5cm might be it like you mentioned, but I saved a few cm just in case to start with, but I think you are right that it is a little too high right now.

Move your head up and down by nesting in the sofa until you will determine best axis for tonal balance and then fix, but take your time until you are sure about the rest of things to finalize also. How's piano now?

I sat on a pillow to simulate a lower stand and it works, it gets more "together". Piano sounds just fine, ty .

Things go as initially planned it seems.

Something happened tonight, the level of the sound suddenly got louder for the same volume setting, made a sign of the drivers (or even filter parts) getting closer to a final state.

Its mechanical. Forget plastic capacitors doing such. Only chemical caps can reform from storage a bit, and you don't use those. Did it snap into better balance and focus beyond more dynamic?

Well I am not sure of focus or balance, but it for sure sounds very similar, just a little louder (I noticed I had to turn the volume down, it was too loud). Very good sound overall.
