If you never tried the Neo8-S, I'd urge you to try them out.  In my opinion, they sound as good in my sealed, three way studio monitors as the Neo10s in my main system open baffles.  They play an octave lower AND cleaner than  the original  Neo8.

It's a good driver. It just doesn't play quite low enough to catch all of the mid-range. The heart of the mid-range is 300 to 500Hz, so I like to cross at least 100Hz below that so as not to split the vocal region into dissimilar drivers are cause a phase shift in that area. The Neo 10 will just make it.

PM me or give me a call. Maybe we can make something happen with these.

Did anything come out of this? Is bamboo a viable material for the baffle?

I'm actually  working on this... got side tracked  but had  another person ask  again  yesterday and  got my interest  going  again.  Not looking at  bamboo ,  something  else
I have a  good model  / dxf done up  now,  just  waiting on  a few things.

What is the lower frequency limit of the panels?  Wondering what the approx. frequency would be crossing over to the servo woofer stack.

I’m interested, might have to sell an organ or two (or some of my audio gear) to afford the drivers but ...

They crossed to the servo subs in the 180Hz range.

I'm coming late to this party, but it is a good one!

In terms of materials, I've made DIY Symposium shelves before which are CLD.  Any logic in making these out of an aluminum/HDF (ie harboard)/aluminum sandwich?  It might make it cheaper than straight aluminum and would it not make for a less reasonant frame?  I appreciate it would be 3 times the CNC work, but I thought programming the CNC machine was the really big cost?
