You could draw a quick and dirty sketch of your total bracing as it is now, so others possibly interested in making a copy speaker won't have to rediscover America.

Easy, not much to do when building from ground up especially.

Yes, I had to cut the rods in two with a little angle to the cut to be able to get it in place and remove a little damping material to get to the wood of the side panels. The lower bracing was a bit lower in my speakers than your drawing, Salas, so the extra bracing is probably even more effective in my case.

Default Improved stability for stands.

I have investigated an easy way to improve my stands for this speaker.
I found a stone plate that fits and bought 4 of them today. I will use this on the lower part of the stands to make them heavier. My stands are rather stiff but has low weight, so this might help. Reporting later with a picture and how it sounds!

Mikvous had raised to me the importance of stands on this speaker's box coloration in a discussion we had yesterday.

That is interesting Salas, I think the bass performance will improve, but I will report tonight.

Default Everything matters...

Adding some weight to the stands and the bass is very different: faster, tighter and deeper and cleaner. Some of the "fleshy" sound is gone and now more tight and fast. Probably a more "correct" bass. Sounds promising!
I can still hear a few side panel sounds I would like to get rid of, but how to do that is nothing I master at the moment. That might be the last bit of the puzzle to get it right. Anyhow the bass is transformed, hopefully I like it in the long run.
The stone plates are 175x350x5 mm. I added a small front panel making the stones invisible from listening position, not very good looking .

They look like Mission speakers first gen style a bit. Only much better.

Do you couple the box to the stands with something?
