      Indeed . Excellent woodwork and I love the creativity!

            I've seen your work... and that pic doesn't do it justice. They look better in person

              This one still makes me smile, as does its descendant.

                Someone mentioned Boenicke earlier. Their full range with side woofer designs predate the relatively recent trend for 'fast' builds by about ten years. I guess they were faster.

                  This by Ward Maas caught my eye - The Internal non-visible details of that speaker are in the Sept. 2016 AudioXpress.
                  The author covers the aspects of resonance - including the bottom half with bass sub-compartments below - the upper open portion is the mid section.
                  "adapted the tube with a Karlson cut out to minimize tube resonances.".

                    Interesting look, but wow, that rear open chamber is a resonating nightmare.

                            James posts over at pinkfishmedia. I'm pretty sure the last pair of speakers he built were the Ergo X in 2008 and I don't think he has plans to build anything else.

                              I have to say a big old +1 for DLN's Echelons. When they were first posted I ran over to my wife and said...look at this! She said, "Those are really nice. Can you build a pair like those." I said, "No" and she lost interest.

                                Do you have a write-up of this speaker?

                                How do you like the audax 210 for mid bass? Compared to several hi end drivers you have used where does this driver fall?

                                Any other impression on this driver? I like the sensitivity and would like to use it in the bottom of a 3 way crossed over to a sub for the lows...
