The bamboo mats are a great idea! :idea:
So where is the enclosure design for the Visaton BG-17 speakers from? Have you tried with a super tweeter? The top ends response is shown to fall off on the datasheet.
Cheers

I like the build of yours very much :thumbsup:

The russian simulation program you're linking to, is it likely the TQWT calculator - Excel - (Metric version of John Rutter's) ?

As I was flipping through the images I thought this was going be a real ugly build. Boy was I wrong. Good work. They look great.
