Default SL Phoenix or other dipole owners +internal wires

Iím 80% of the way through building the Phoenix woofers.
http://www.linkwitzlab.com/woofer.htm

How did you neatly connect the wires from the amp, to the one woofer in each pair that has an *open back (the woofer next to G in the drawing), therefore nowhere to mount a speaker connector to?
Reason for asking: the back of mine will be a little on view (SAF).
Attach a block of wood to the Ďcabinetí, then attach a speaker connector to that? Is there a simpler way?

Any recommendations for internal wires within the woofers (the XLS, to be driven by a 100 w amp/ driver).

Thanks

Default How does it sound?

Hi,

I'm a audiophile neophyte, and interested in the open baffle design. I want to build either the Phoenix or the Orion from Linkwitz lab.

How does the sub sounds?

Thanks,

SonicBooMan

Hi SBMan,

There is no sub in the Phoenix or the Orion. Both have excellent bass for music, natural in that thereís no much less room boom. You can supplement them with a sub for HT, eg with Linkwitzís Thor.

Depends on your priorities, more bass (go bass reflex), or more clean bass (Phoenix or Orion).

Cheers

Default Woofers

Oops, I mean the W-shape woofers. Do they give "enough" low-frequency response?

Thanks,

It could be a month or two before I hear them (lack of floor space, high ceilings: I'm going to attach them to the ceiling).
But the Orions had no lack of bass, unless techno or organs are on the playlist (which I donít listen to).
Mot simple projects (XOs, multi amps), but great ones, IMO.

Cheers
