For the finishing I used a high coverage primer and the paint I'll give away the secret in 3.5 words. Behr Marquee semi-gloss. :D . I'm going to start on a center channel to match it. Might use the same drivers but go for a sealed design Sent from my VS990 using Tapatalk
      Glad you are enjoying them! What sub were you using and how big is your room? If you build a center, you should be able to make it a WWTWW arangement without any significant change. Off axis looks to be good to about 20 degrees in each direction, so a 40-45 degree window. Sealed might roll off a bit too soon though. These only get down to around 125 Hz sealed. I would reduce box size by about half and port to around 70-75Hz instead. That should get you extension down into the mid 60s.

        your going to cringe, but the room is about 23x18 and all tile floor! I agree as I punch the numbers, those RS 100's just are not meant to be sealed. I was using a Dayton 500W amp with built in crossover and a 10" Ref series Dayton Woofer for the sub. I was thinking of doing a WTWWTW to address multiple seating positions. What are your thoughts on that setup? (using the same ND25FA's).
        The whole other direction I was thinking of going was to build a true super slim longer "sound bar" but I get nervous on super tiny speaker builds, thinking about quality. But I haven't admittedly punched numbers on any of the super small driver specs yet.

          If you are doing it just for a center, a WTWWTW would not be ideal. You'll actually get worse off axis because of the tweeter spacing. If you were running it as L/R setup, it could work OK.

          If I remember correctly, you'll get about at 30 (+/-15) degree listening window if you lay a Boomstick on it's side. It might have been a little more than that. You can build it as a WWTWW and it should work just fine. If your couch is back a at around 3 meters or so from the center channel, that will give you a fairly wide listening window. If you are only a few feet away, it could be a problem.
