Does it happen to excite the mids cabinet, havent heard like that anything before, the midtop enclosure is tuned to 45Hz.

C/o is 24db linkwitz set @ 160hz & 2.4Khz.

Still very confused why & how is it happening.

air pressure - load your mids in a horn (if the drivers are suitable)

I'd simply position them a little further away from the scoops. And the fact that your clothes move to the rythm is not really bad, ist it ?

Are you using these for disco or live music ?

I would try a higher tuning on the top boxes maybe, but you should see if it is a particular frequency setting the top boxes resonating.

With some disco system that I have (though much much les beefy than yours) we often "flew" the tops and placed the woofers close together. Stereo reproiduction of bass wasn't that good anymore that way but punchg was increased due to mutual coupling.

The tops might be built as closed box of quite small volume this would reduce cone-movement from external SPL as well. Although you would loose the possibility to use them "stand-alone" in situations where the big bass-bins aren't need.

Thats the reason i have buit it, and tuned to 45Hz, so i would be able to use it as fullrange in small places.
