Heh, I like

So you decided to go with these in a 3-way then or are they sub use only?

Honestly - dunno. I've come to the (rather obvious) conclusion that if I want to learn about this speaker design lark, I really need to get around to buying some drivers.

I have a vague idea of getting a tweeter and midbass (looking at Zaph's site for response and distortion data) and maybe making a simple two-way, then extending it with one or two XLS10s.

I had a brief chat with Siegfried Linkwitz, who indicated that if you're going the boxed speaker route, then stereo sealed subs would be his preference for the bottom end (i.e. two sealed units, rather than one, or vented/ported unit[s]).

I'd like to put two XLS10s in one box, but it's occurred to me that the minimum impedance is probably going to get a little low, plus I need to consider getting an amp for them, plus a crossover, plus working out a suitable box size, plus looking into a Linkwitz transform, plus... *sound of head exploding*

David Weems books are a good introduction for beginners.

Yea, I have his book.

I've been spending my time researching box construction, and learning to use a CNC machine I bought, so hadn't read it in a while. I have also been reading a lot of online stuff about speaker design though, so it was good to flick through it last night and realise I'm beginning to understand a lot more of what he's talking about.

Need to get this box painting thing sorted first though!

He does take a simplistic textbook approach, but for getting to grips with the world of box types and parameters etc it's a good easy start without getting confusing.

That's the way it should be done. None of this Pioneer or Alpine tat.
