Whell I start this project like decade ago
whell for last 5years loudspeakeers waited to be painted...
back that I was younger, was fit, have more hair
and most important without knowledge
( ignorance is bliss )

but it was fun time
as it's fully active I spend some time building amplifiers, preamplifier's, DSP, trying different solutions

only after some time you figure out that active is not a good way to go if you don't have some passive system as if one component in chain doesn't work, the whole setup is not working
no meter if it's one amplifier, one cable, one driver, one fuse or one resistor...and than you have to figure out whats wrong

not to mention that loudspeakers are the hardest part of whole diyaudio where everything meter...
driver placement, cabinet, cabinet dimensions,distance be twin drivers,distance be twin driver and cabinet boundaries, damping, material...etc...you know the story

laminated of BB and MDF seamed like a good idea back than, different material different resonant frequency...
you could do interior as you like
but the problem is that MDF and BB have some work ( in horizontal ) and there are chances of micro cracks
and once glued, whole cabinet tend to ''work'' depending of humidity in the air at least until it's all sealed/painted etc.

well it was fun, and I would do it again

I hope I will, with different drivers etc
(or better not )

I made these a while back.
I was looking at transmission line designs and thought, why use wood boxes with sharp corners? So I look around for pipes. These are 16cm diameter drain pipes. They are very stiff plastic. I also found some Wharfedale drivers on clearance for cheap.

Before you're too disgusted and after you stop laughing, they actually sound great, no "pipe" sound. I made some improvement since, like replacing the tape with a proper mounting bracket, but these old pictures are more raw

Nice work Yoke! That's a very tough way to build cabinets. You must have killed a few router bits.

This approach is not new. Your pipe is probably on the small size for an optimum TL, but as long as you are enjoying them :^)

An example of earlier work (but far from being the earliest):

Laying Pipe with Audio Lego

jea, I notice that somehow my router don't do the job as as when it was new
and have some strange sound, looks like bearings have some complaints
but other than that, it's still working just fine
