These speakers looks great as well as impressively huge. What kind of amp do you use with these?

It looks like a series design. 10mh/68uf -> ~200hz ?

With 6.8mH inducttor and 106uF cap we will get 187Hz cut.

Those speakers look amazing! Only 6 hours to build them??

What is the advantage of the curved design?

Sorry for the confusion on the 6hrs.. it’s a kit. 

@ the curved frame (1) phase ? (2)  increased structural inertia ?  interesting statics question to be honest.

With regard to the concave baffle setup, is the design brief not addressed somewhere obvious on the site?

Just watched this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=96&v=o_8BNXNLVVQ, totally lusting after these mamma jammas. The audio sample at the end sounds gooooooooood. Need a big space for 'em, I imagine.

I know this is an older thread, but wanted to know how the bass output/support differs with the top woofers vs the bottom woofers since they are close to the floor.

I'm contemplating building something similar for my system mainly to conserve space in my small room.
