picowallspeaker,
I'm quite interested in your post where you say

freestanding box it's much-much better
Do you mean that like for like i.e. same upper baffle, internal volumes, crossover etc, then a speaker on an open stand will outperform a floorstander? If so, in what way and why in your experience? I'm just curious because I am close to going ahead with a floorstander version of the 3WC, which is better practical option for me, but I am not 100% decided. Thanks.

Default Jantzen box

Faital 3WC kit box just arrived from Jantzen Audio. Oddly enough, the kit box is only 2cm over the 3WC width and depth, and 8cm less in height. So it gives quite a good idea of the size of this speaker. You can see that it dwarfs the Rega EL8 floorstander next to it. Yikes!

Yeah, those cardbox comparisons can be misleading, because the cardboard looks ugly. Just make a nice looking box and you will love it.

You're missing the point my friend, a DIY project of this scope gives you the reason to go and buy (by mail perhaps) those tools you ‘need’ and deserve !!!

You're lucky!

I follow Faital on facebook and they have shut the factory for the time being.
