    Was the speaker on a slab or floating floor? Any chance the spikes weren't level? Was your fingernail calibrated beforehand? :D

      And decent drivers to say the least. Bracing is cheap too . . .
      That's always been the Sonus Faber way: expensive drivers, excellently styled but poorly designed cabinets, and inept crossover design.

      But onto the thread topic, one build that I've long thought was a standard-setter is Markus's M.'s: white-painted Gedlee Nathans perched atop repurposed Bose 901 faux-Saarinen tulip stands.

        Kinda like leaving a tunnel behind a mid so it's sorta kinda open back-ish. As long as the response of the panel vibrations is properly accounted for in the design, and it sounds good...

        though I thought they didn't sound that good when I heard them, it could have just been the setup(CES)

          Here's one person's variation on the theme, he also did a magnesium coned version too: http://www.troelsgravesen.dk/PMS.htm

          I'd love to build something similar one day!

                            Hmm? I felt that the SF Aida had pretty good internal construction.

                              He may have been refering to the outside of the cabinets. They are probably one of the best looking speakers I've ever seen, but I can't even begin to imagine the unwanted reflections caused by all those oddly placed curves, ripples, chamfers, and fins.
