Default Imus - 3 way build with ScanSpeak drivers (large)

After my first build, that was a mid size 3 way , with medium quality drivers, I decided to build another set of speakers that will meet my taste in aesthetics,and hopefully in sound quality too.This time the enclosure will be made by a good friend, with exceptional skills both working with wood (MDF) and also with the crossover design.
The first set of speakers were mede by me,and it came out very well, but it was an easier build
.

Speakers used:

ScanSpeak D3004 - 660000
ScanSpeak 18W8531G00
ScanSpeak 30W4558T00

The new build is looking like Avalon's Isis,but I used only one subwoofer, and the upper enclosure's baffle (mid/high) is vertical, because I'm using passive filters, and don't want timing problems.
I will keep you up to date with the progress.

No, in this case , Imus is from the latin superlative degree, and it reflects the bass response that this speaker will be able to reproduce, having a quite large 12" subwoofer .

Oh- I thought you had these 32W...
Solen Electronique Inc.

The 30W you have is an improved (formerly) Peerless XLS12, and that was also an outstanding performer.

Oh come on! I gotta ask "WHY!?" now.... I see a BG Neo3, but what mid?
Later,
Wolf

Why or what? I know abaout that Peerless, the mid was a SBAcoustics SB17NRXC35 , an inexpensive driver,but it outperformed it's price easily.

I hope you're not using metal tubes (can't really judge from the photo). I tried in the past but they were resonating and that was audible. When I changed to a plastic tube all went right.
