Lovely piece of work. Pity the cable could not pass through the pole.

That's right, assuming each driver is a 5.3R resistor.

Hang the next pair from the ceiling by the speaker wires (with clear insulation).

Inspiring. Kudos.

I too have a docdecahedron project down the line, but hope to use 3D printing to construct the panels. Mine will be smaller, the drivers are the Foster version of the JBL 35mm FR used in the Apple eMac. I will hang them from the ceiling.

And i have enuff 4” Eastech 4” (sub)woofers to make 1 or 2 dodecahedrons with 8 drivers each for helper woofer(s).

Somewhere i have a drawing for the riangular panels and (had) a scheme for cutting them.

Agreed Nico. Damnably well done andytoddmsp. That's a fine job. Kudos to you. I actually thought they would be a little bigger - don't know why?
