Both woofer work on the same, pretty big and damped enclosure with a mouth opening of about 40% membransurface. I had to widen up the mouth to place it with the opening to the floor so i checked if that karlsonstyle mouth extension would be a help (or if the ladies had to get a bigger booty).

The woofer in the back comes without crossover to give it a little mor virtual room, that's why i put the holes around it. It passes out at around 6000 Hz.
The upper part is connected with glue to the lower one with a ring of rubber.



@MtBiker
The cavities were a design feature, i attached a foto of the former use with some other speakers.
I really like your style Prag.

Top of the line DIY speakers from about 15 years ago. The speakers use two 7 inch Focal W Cone Midrange drivers, Focal Audiom TD5 Tweeter and two Focal 13 inch W Cone woofers. Top of the line DIY speakers based on Focal drivers. - DanWilson - Speaker Asylum

Wow if that is your listening room you are a lucky man. I guess the gear just takes it a step further. And why shouldn’t we have orderly, beautiful listening areas where we just want to be. Mine is my lounge and I”M the one who keeps it neat and tidy. Nice environment, nice and just enough gear and bloody good music. That’s me!

Total cost was $1000 for all drivers, XO parts, hardware and wood. I got mine in the GB so saved a little.
