Unhappy Eros Dimensions error?

A question for anyone who has built the Eros speakers from

Shouldn't the back panel dimension be 1.5 inches shorter as it fits inside the top and bottom panels, yet it is shown as the same height as the front and sides which both fit outside?

Also, in the cross section the top and bottom are shown as double thickness. Is this double thickness MDF or MDF with the plywood inner?

Many Thanks

There are also some questions about the spacing of the drivers that are inconsistant. He never cleared that up to my satisfaction.

Yeah, I think something happened like he fixed the drawings, but then the old incorrect drawings reappeared on the website.

Anyway, an "Incorrect Eros dimension?" question appears on the forum at that website every few weeks or months. Just do a search over there and you'll get your answer in detail.

Already looked and people have different ideas about it especially regarding whether you line ALL internal surfaces with plywood (apparently you do - Wayne said).

Wayne checked his dimensions and thinks they're right but there is no possible way that his cut out and back panel dimensions work out. He suggested trying other forums and people that have already built them, hence the question.

Any takers?

I know this is kind of an old post, but I thought I'd mention that I had the same problem with the Lyras from the speakerbuilder site. Accrording to his photo, the MDF for the front and back is supposed to fit OVER the top and bottom, but there's no way that can work based on his cut dimensions.

I just fit the front and back in between the top and bottom and moved on. Sounds great nonetheless.
