Lowest possible WAF?

Here's my first MLTL enclosure. I was not actually trying for a record low WAF, but I may have achieved it anyway.



It's designed for the Mark Audio Pluvia 7. Next week I hope to make the baffles out of wood using a CNC. Hopefully it won't be too long before I have my very first speaker built.

The main point of using the PVC is to allow me to give me a lot of freedom to experiment with not only different port lengths, but with different pipe tunings and driver locations just by swapping in different lengths of pipe between the fittings.

That's some redneck speaker buildin there dude. I especially like the toilet flange foot.

I saw Dr Linkwitz at RMAF last fall. He had speakers using assorted plumbing pipe and fittings. He did not have a toilet flange anywhere though. I explained that it would really tie the project together if he included the toilet flange somehow.

I am hoping this thread is meant to be a competition. More posts to come.
 
Based on my own resident author of opinions on the question of WAF, those do come close to fugly

Well, you did ask


Pardon if the answer is to be found elsewhere, but have you played enough with the Pluvias in other enclosure to form an opinion?

I quite like them in the FH3- the only enclosure in which I've yet heard them

Thanks! Yes, I'm especially pleased with the toilet flange. It wasn't in the original design, which would have required some type of rack to mount it:



But, I was in Lowe's and saw the toilet flange, and realized immediately that it was the solution!

One more shot, in all its glory:
