    The cork cuts beautifully.

        The sheet cork surround is a bit fussy, but quite doable.

          Nice work! They're tiny aren't they (compared to your Zingers)?

            The Zingers may be stretching it just a bit for a 2.1 nearfield setup. These are a very nice size.

          The cork looks great. Excited to see the final product.

            So I got the booster seats out for the stands for these.. Listened with/without subwoofer. They sound luscious. Amazing. Obligatory "amazing bass for a 4" woofer", really better with sub. They ended up as simple Birch boxes. The "translam" panels warped on me. I think the cork looks really nice. I used 3/16" thick cork one ft. sq. tiles. Fresh Xacto #11 blades, it cut very nicely. Perfect thickness for these two drivers to flush up to.

            The point of the cork was a simple way to flush mount the pincushion frame woofer, worked great.

            Startling sound, recommended. About $300, $50 was the birch. I had to buy two batches after my strip panels warped.

            Edit: I added 1/2" height and width to get a nice looking baffle with the 3/8" BB edge. 1/4" shallower, I didn't do the ciphering to figure exact volume equivalency.

              You are turning out some really sharp looking speakers. Someday you should do a writeup of your impressions on all of them.

                Thank you. My impressions are they all sound good to me. I'm not a critical listener.
