The thing about this design I like it is maintains efficiency and has a useful corner for music rather than trying to be a HT bruiser.

Without my friends at swedish HifiForum this would never have happened. PetterPersson made a front loaded quarter wave pipe design for Asto, using I believe a 10 inch driver. Asto wrote about how good it sounded. That got me thinking. RIK told me about the design of the Cerwin Vega B36. When he was a teenager he actually took measurments of them in the most expensive shop in Stockholm (NK). He also told me about how brilliant Martinssons designs are (he had recently built a Tham15), only one joint is not 90 or 45 degrees. Also Classe helped with good advice and listening tests.

Thanks again JoshK for you kind words. Thanks freddi!

I don't understand what a HT bruiser is though.

HT bruiser is my english slang. HT = home theater. Typically lots of sub designs here are shooting fr <20hz response. Which is fine for home theater but not really needed for music, IMO.

I guess that depends on the music

I have not been to a disco, or whatever you kids call it nowdays, for many years. How low does modern dance music go?

Some genres go down to 20 Hz, I miss the sound from Studio54 RLA sound system from the 80's I can still remember how it feels after waiting in the cold line outside the club in winter and how the bass hits you when you enter the doors. Bass glorification! LOL!
