Always a bad thing with the good. I just popped in the second woofer, phew. They are heavy to handle, I am always afraid I will damage them.

There ain't no drying smells to attack the cones, right?

No, it has dried more than one hour (wood glu) so it should be ok.
They look huge compared to my small CA18RLY I got recently. I just hope that I have got some result, it is getting crowded in there if I put in something more, I do not want to stop air flow. I will play my "hate-CD" tomorrow and check (Diana Krall: Live in Paris).

Now it has dried, tested that Live in Paris CD and no more resonance from the box itself . I will give more impressions tonight together with the inside picture. I just hope that this last mod has not destroyed bass performance, but after the quick checking today it seemed fine.

Some impressions: all together it is a step up in sound quality, that is clear to me. Middle range more clarity but with warmth, bass seem more robust. I also tried with the front panels on, and I like the bass support it gives so they will stay.
I can finally say the speakers are ready, I am very pleased and will enjoy my time with them. I have learned how cabinet rigidity is important, and how to achieve that in my own way. MDF is probably ok if you use solid wood for bracing, but next time I will use birch plywood. My original bracing was also made from MDF since that was what was available, but I can say now that it is not a good idea, use solid pine rod or something similar.
I send this to Salas to help him get cool in hot Athens....
