Bass soft or stiff? Two different descriptions.

Maybe I have been unclear, I have the swedish word but uncertain of translating it.
Inelastic is the closest I get.

I mean you were describing it as ''soft'' till recently. Are they having another idea, or you wanted to say ''inelastic'' all along?

Yes I know Salas, it can be hard to describe sounds with words. Most correct is inelastic all along to answer your question. But also it was soft in the beginning, now I do not find it especially soft, it sounds good and can hit rather hard if it is in the music. I have been playing some Erica Badu with electric bass and it does not sound soft, it is just right.
I hope this have shred some light on the matter.

Dowels sounds smart, I should have thought of that. I think I am too late to do that now. The speakers my Dad made 30 years ago (I am listening to them now) have screws that have never come loose or vibrated after all this time -I may screw mine too. I can predrill, counter-sink, and fill and sand; it will be a nice job.

I guess there are some choices about making joints, etc. Aside from that I am sticking to the origional plan as much as possible. I will put the cross-braces where Salas's plans indicate.

I enjoy hearing your listening impressions Stare. My 30+ year old TL's truely are tired, and having a more modern tweeter is exciting to me. I'm glad it's a good one!

I can say this, you can match these speakers with the very best equipment and you will hear every change. Put as much effort as you can into them, it is worth it! What crossover components are you using?

Haven't decided on brand of cross-over stuff yet. I had found some stuff on partsexpress that I believe was Jentzen if I recall correctly. They had some that were listed as high quality "Z" something. I am open to suggestions for quality, but I think if I go back and read I'll find what you used (Jentzen right?)

There's a good shop near here, JAMAC Audio Portland Oregon (JAMAC SPEAKERS // Raw drivers information page). I will find out also if they can order the drivers for less cost than what I can import them from Europe-Audio. They may have things for cross-over on the shelf so I won't have to order online. They are reputable and have been a big of the audio-scene in this region for decades; so that helps.

I am spreading the costs of this project over time. No point in importing the expensive drivers if I am not successful in building the cabinet. So far I am only into this $35 for wood, and it is going well. I will build the cross-over next, and get drivers last.

The coils and resistors are from Jantzen (not Jentzen, that is another brand) and one capacitor. The rest of the coils are from Intertechnik (german). It is not that important if the brand you use is not the same, but I would say use as high quality as you can/want. Jentzen has very high quality capacitors but they cost a fortune, Jantzen is good but cheaper.
