Default Very similar to my old Acoustic Lab Zeta

-With the same driver and they sound not correct I believe, but VERY pleasant. I put the same drivers in the doors of my last car. That was fine, but they weren`t aimed at my ears so some highs were missing. In my next car I will make boxes for them, that fits on each side of the stearing wheel on the dasboard. The Zetas are sealed. Yours are ported right? What portsize and volume?
Cheers!

yes, but best is ported with the long port (gold egg picture is short port)
Here is a "see through" of the internals of the long port

yes just checked, need a new link, they are hard to come by

if you want to 3D print the eggs i REALLY recommend 4" or 5", 3" sound very good but low watts and limited depth limits their enjoyment alone, 4" is 200W, 5" is 250W and they are still after 10 years of using them the best units i have used in over 1000' tested in the last 25 years

They where really surprised at Make: Magazine at the audio quality, this was the 5" over 1 year ago, and have made small tweaks to make them even better.

3" are nice with a subwoofer, and working on transmission line subs (4-6") to go with them

Very cool! The feet are funny.

The egg is double walled? Did I read that right?

yes the dual walls help alot with resonance, it keeps most of it inside, one thing that still amazes me is how light these speakers are, and with the 150W+ clear sound they really shock most people when put together with the TDA7294 + Transistors AMP

and that is just for now , have a whole lot of stuff you guys will be interested in
