Ensure you get proper components for the crossover and ensure the routing around the drivers are proper. In addition you should experiment a bit with the damping inside the speakers

Thank you.

One more question please.

Soundwise- is it enough of that sound eekels produce for medium room ?

They look fantastic also high praise to you putting together a speaker that's not mass marketed and off the shelf.

p.s clamps look like something a chippy would use on MDF?

Depends on how big your medium room is...

I have them in a room that is 3.5 X 4.5 metres. And they sound excellent until I turn it up really loud - as in painful. Then they sart losing the drive in the bass - purely due to not being able to move enough air. But at "normal" levels they are just excellent

Hope this helps

Dampening

Hi there. I'm just about to have a go at building something similar. Do you use dampening material within the cabinet or line the interior with a felt or similar or is it just "wood"?

Hi kits usually come with profiled acoustic foam if required. Have you cheked out http://www.iplacoustics.co.uk kits are superb and much cheaper than Wilmslow, Look at the M3 and M4 for standmouts. Kit around £285 for the small M4. If you need any advise on build just let me know, its rewarding and the results are superb sound.
