Looks like a great solid cabinet, but don't forget to chamfer the driver cutouts on the back!

I'll change the actual construction of the mid/tweet cabinet tonight.

Got a brainwave. Instead of just using only the partial width of the main cabinet I'll let it sit across the full width of the main cabinet and will decrease the depth of the box a bit.

The pieces of board the create the top and bottom of the mid-tweet cabinet will run from side to side and act also as extra bracing.

With some extra pieces of mdf I'll give the inside of the mid-tweet cabinet an irregular shape.

Update the construction somewhat: new mid cabinet over the full width of the main cabinet, back of mid cab attached to the bracing, bracing of the baffle just above the woofer is changed

Nah, blinds were not closed, it was in the evening when I took the screenshot, hence no shadows ;-)

Seriously now.....

before someone remarks it: the mid cabinet is somewhat oversized for a ScanSpeak 10F, so there will be some extra walls inside to reduce the volume (and to create an irregular shape).

The main cabinet is a bit oversized so I nibbled a few liters of by making the external dimensions of the mid-cabinet bigger.

Thanks.

The design is inspired on the once populair pyramid shape. I recently saw that Avalon, known for the use of facets, has a similar shaped speaker on the market as this built.
