Pictures did not attach properly. Most likely cause is that the size is too big. Check out the size limitations in the "add atachment" button. You might have to use imaging software to reduce size. We would all like to see what you are doing.

Hi Båndsei,
An interesting fullrange omni experiment it may be but in no way can you describe this speaker as Pluto. The shape alones disqualifies it completely.

Pluto is meant to be as small a point source as possible without adding these diffraction issues.

Wow! The sphere design looks great!


Your new project looks very interesting as well but you should be careful not to run into diffraction issues.

I have ordered new Seas 5" speakers and have a pair of aurasound speakers as i ordered 4 pcs.for my first build.
I use Mini DSP 4 way for crossover and EQ. Sure 4x 100w amps.

How are those ikea bowls (i presume?) working out, and how did you create the silver sphere on top?

Nice looking projects.

The silver sphere is made from a transperant one painted silver as the tube is.
I like the sound but maybe the silver sphere is too small, it sounds better now in this setup:
