That's not what Salas said, listen to him, he knows what he's talking about.

bbggg: I know Salas knows what he is talking about, so do I, I have been into this hobby for 25 years, at least. I will try what works best .
alspe: I will post a real review when the speakers are finished.
Short version: I have listened to some drums and it sounds very good, clear and natural with good dynamics. I prefer the sound compared to my Revel speakers which are considered a good speaker, that says a lot about the sound quality in my book. Of course I have listened a lot to music with them and not only test tones and such.

Finally got some time to build, the bracing between tweeter and woofer is in place, the port lenght is glued with silicon. Next is the lower bracing, should I have it as close as possible to the woofer for max stability?
Or glue it together with the lower side to side bracing (this makes it placed about 5cm lower than the woofer hole).

How about putting cross bracing behind magnets, just enough to touch when u screw the drivers?

Salas: not sure lol, this is still not decided .
henry: I think it will do as it is, but thanks for the suggestion. When I had no back to front bracing (it was like that when I had it assembled earlier and played music) it worked quite well, so I think the bracings I got now will be sufficient, but thanks for the suggestion. I also do not want to change things from Salas original to avoid any surprises.

That's potentially better but takes precise work. Must have a rubber pad and press with enough force to the back plate when woofer's in position. It wasn't available in the prototype since the cabinet was already braced and available from an older real wood speaker. Thus I can not predict the outcome.

U can use some gasket seal tape for ducting. So make it shy 2-3mm, then the gasket will make it tight.
