Picture regrouping the different parts not being peripheral.

On top one of the elements forming the rear of the cabinet.

Then one element forming the front of the cabinet.

And last the elements for the front where the front-plates for the drivers are situated.

Let's finish the floor-stand:

Wow, really amazing. A lot of planning!

How thick is the MDF sheet, 25mm? Do you worry about the dimensional stability of the MDF at all?

Yes, MDF is 25mm is this case but not restrictive at all, thicker plates can be used. Dimensional stability has been taken into account, as an example I might quote "front-plate adjustments" ...

Installation of the cross-over components on the perspex boards. Holes are drilled to hold the components in place with zip ties.

Placement and orientation of the coils are as per the observation of Troels on his website. Have a look here:Placement of coils in crossover networks:

Figure 6 applies for the central coil to the 2 outer ones and figure 1 for the outer ones to each other.

The other one. Looks just the same, besides the white colored tape (no particular reason, I only ran out of black one)

Waveflex, it looks like you're doing wonderful work. Seems like pre-stressed concrete in a way once you tighten down the threaded rod?

But it appears you have weakened the loudspeaker where it needed strength the most: at the baffle openings. Perhaps there is bracing to compensate? (I understand that you were trying to improve airflow.)
(The same might apply to removing material from the center of the angled legs?)

Thanks for your appreciation of the project Tosh.

I will post the assembly of the different parts shortly, as mentioned earlier in this post there's indeed some bracing. Honestly airflow was not really an issue as far as the legs are concerned...
