A11ms fits fine in FHXL. It fits pretty much anywhere Pluvia 11 goes.

It is Lii Audio. I haven't found much if anything about the M6, more info on their 8" and 10" full range models.

If they would drop in with some mods I would be interested, but at roughly the same price point as the 10p I would not expect them to be a significant upgrade if they are better at all. They are lookers though!

The look back at the old bi-flex is indeed intriguing. This is the most interesting Lii Audio i have seen yet.

is the 5-degree tilt in the front baffle of fhxl just for driectivity purpose or does it have any other sonic properties like decreasing standing waves inside the enclosure.

It creates the horn expansion profile (along with altering the driver axis).

im trying to get birch ply with good grade. but it seems birch ply is not easily available in south of india. is it okay to use 19mm 100 gurjan core plywood with minimum void and a specific gravity of more than .68 and has 13 layers.

Lots of plies and low or no voids along with quality construction is whatyou are looking for. Typically the less it weighs the better.

Got a link to this plywood?

I have the link but i talked with the guy via email so im nt sure which plywood variant from the site is the one he was offering me. specs he gave me is specific gravity of .7 g/cc or more, 13 layers of ply, 19mm thickness and made from 100% gurjan which is actually a heavier wood.

I checked the specific gravity of baltic birch and it was .68 g/cc. Hence i was having the impression that sg of .68 or more is better. Good that you told me lighter is better

The pictures look good, the differences look most like differences in face veneers, which are to the largest extent cosmetic.

As expected teh dimensions are actually metric (4 mm, 6 mm, 9 mm, 12 mm, 16 mm, 18 mm, 22 mm, 25 mm, 30 mm, 40 mm), FHXL can be made from 16 and a thicker baffle (18/22), or all using the thicker stuff.
