Its like a scales. If you will make mid-bass more prominent, the mid is going to withdraw proportionally. I preferred the 2.5mH personally. I use 3.5dB baffle step correction in a stereo pair, the most. Some friends prefer more, I find it heavy in power response. If trying, I would do it with a bigger coil, either tapped down to 2.5mH, or unwinding and measuring mH until happy. Not by a fixed guess. Coil's DCR changes the final impression too. When your box is gonna be fully braced and glued, bass can be a tad more robust than now its more likely. And there is the room positioning and stands coupling/rigidity that ain't final yet I guess.

Yes, that is what I suspected. It will be a good balance as it is, thanks.

Treated paper cones are great all rounders, but if it was a 3 way, hard synthetic or metal bass cones could be used and they would present more ''kick'' down low due to their rigidity, but they usually ring in the background if used for wider spectrum.

Yeah, I know that some do not find paper cones and silc domes "high tech" enough, but to me they give a natural sound. The M20 is not cold sounding like you could believe, but I have never liked the tweeter 100% (aluminium).

Rigid stands, correct coupling and total height, your remaining braces and front baffle final fixing they will help you further I hope. Its not a finished build we should remember.

Yes Salas, I will try to optimize as far as possible . I also think that when coming from one speaker to another, you have to remember that both have their fortes and none is perfect, it is always some compromizes involved. But since they sound so good you get picky and want it to be as good as it can be.

Salas, since you use 3.5dB BSC it is probably a good idea to have the speakers closer to back wall than with 6dB. How close is it possible, I think of the 1st reflex from the back wall, I have read that you should have about 1,7 m difference in sound path comparing direct and 1st reflex to avoid any smearing (from a side wall for example). Is it less sensitive when it comes to the back wall since most of the sound is going forward (middle- and treble range)?

6dB creates heavy power response in nodal region from a stereo pair, that's my experience. Go as near to wall as you don't feel it starts smearing the mids.
