    Cool find at Target

    On a whim while at the Target with the family I decided to pick up a pair of these heptagon cups as they looked like a 3" driver would fit perfectly in the opening..... low and behold ..... 😏😏😏

    Has anyone done any work with the nd91 full range to improve sound a little bit? Going to try porting this soon just to see what else happens. At $4 for the cup hard to argue with how fast you can get these finished and going....

    I just got back from Target. No more wooden Septagon containers. But they do have the large wooden waste basket that can be used for the flower pot.

The bottom edge's of the front of the speaker and the board would stabilize the speaker front to back. And the distance between the cups can be chosen to facilitate the tweeter mounting.

    Love it. The "Flower Pot" idea is so cool. Using one as a base and for stationary/writing utensils and then port/support post running up to main enclosure..... I hope it happens.

    Great idea. Maybe instead of just gluing a side together, you can construct a brace to hold the backs, so both drivers and be on the same plane. The tweeter can be on top in a TMM arrangement.

    Yeah a spine would be good. I just bought two of them. I am going to use an external port on them and use ND65-8's with a slight contour filter.

    Some great and amazing ideas coming out here. The MTM idea is killer...but do the slight angles help or hurt the design and crossover design? I am thinking just glue two cups together and suspend/mount in the open space a tweeter....

    I believe he just meant that shape-wise, that's what he was thinking. Long, narrow stand/port to add volume, and the bowl/driver = the blossom

    Essentially. But the thought also crossed my mind to use the square pots for the base and actually make them flower looking and you could also use the pot at the bottom as pen holders.
