I'm very tempted to have a go - or rather get my carpenter friend to take a squizz at the plans and see what he thinks.
How do you have them positioned / what size is your room?
Most of my horn loaded single drivers always sounded best out a ways from the wall in my room. These are no different and are about 4 feet out from the back wall. I have them out into the room a ways. However, I have a dedicated listening room, so it isn't an issue. They have somewhat of an omni-directional, room filling quality about them. Likely due to all the vibrating surface area on the sides acting like drivers.

No good for me then, if I was going to build anything bigger, 'they' would have to go in the corners.
Which 'velo do you ride - if you dont mind me asking? I purchased an S5, not the lightest device in the world, fair comfy compared to my wretched Orbea Orca's.

Open bottom and ported in the back? WTF?

Default Another Betsy Resonant Speaker

Let's Build Some Resonating Cabinets - Home Audio Stereo Discussion Forums

This speaker craftsman posted a link (above) on my blog detailing his version of the Reso speaker. Somehow I missed this thread when doing my research. Several pages into the thread, he puts a Betsy in his reso cabinet along with an EMT tweeter.
