Yes, the design of the DIY version is inspired by the Guru speakers.
When you go to earlier posts you can see how that came about.

The front baffle of the DIY version is quite thick so i made the inner hole bigger and rounded the edges of the outer whole for the woofer.
I chamfered and rounded the baffle. I will glue tiles to the top and the sides too.
I put in the reflex tube from the back.

I have now put the drivers into the cabinet. I also smoothed the edge of the tweeter with plumbers putty. This and the rounding and chamfering of the cabinet has a very positive effect on the frequency response of the tweeter.
The reflex minimum sits quite symmetric on 36.5Hz without any wrinkles in the response over 100Hz. That shows that the cabinet walls are stable and there is enough damping material in the cabinet. I used natural sheep wool. 1/2 20 liter package.
I will show measurements soon.

Hello, Joachim,

Very interested in your results and I have also been following Jeff's build as well. I am in hopes these drivers will be the ones I may need to end my speaker search with sufficient bass for 2 channel listening! I am not a designer, but love the DIY scene!!!

I have Jeff's Triton speakers and love them, but need one more pair I would like to build and have been looking for some time.

Meniscus will be posting their pricing soon, so I am curious as to the costs of these for comparison.

Thanks for posting your build with the DIY community,

Robert

Zaph recently posted measurements for the Satori on his blog.

His results mirror Gornir's, pretty much the best performing driver of it's type with the best motor in the business.

What I like is that the SB standard line represents a world class level of performance when compared to most, yet they actually accomplished the almost impossible by offering a decent step up in performance when going to the Satori. 3rd harmonic products at better than -70dB, that doesn't rise thru the mids is not a trivial achievement, colour me very impressed.

I agree with all of your comments. All SB drivers are simply excellent for the cost, and the Satori is excellent no matter the cost.

My plan is to add a subwoofer to the Satori Monitors.
