If these are the same ones I remember from another site, I'd like to see some of the build pics. The internal bracing looks incredibly strong, and your woodworking skills are top-notch!

Excuse me for my poor English - I do what I can!
Thank you for the good evaluation of my work!
I have no idea at which site you've seen my posts, they're over 25 "DIY Audio Forums" in the world, sorry!
Please, for your patience, I will explain in detail on this project, but please give the opportunity and time to this post - he is theare only a few hours!
Thank you,
Joro

Beautiful speakers! Excellent work and I'd definitely like to see more of it. Thanks for sharing on the forum. Are these cabinets your own design?

In order to save Your time, I will allow myself a clarification:
-Everything in this project-idea, design filters the overall workmanship of the cabinets to the last detail was done by my hands.

Allow me to remind you that this is an initial phase - even a conceptual project.After the measurements made by me at 10 "speaker, this project can not be done, not with these speakers. Not all ideas are good, are they?

Excuse me, but there may be a misunderstanding - this project is not three years old, and it is clear that this project it will not happened that way.
The problem is in the frequency of around 5000Hz; There is a peak ,which strongly influences the average frequencies.There are two ways to solve this problem:
- Adding one more MW,
-More complicated construction of the filter I don't know the exact name , maybe (reager).
This project may be look beautiful, but will be changed.

Are you using pre-made crossovers? If so they may need modifying.

Thank you for the evaluation of my work!

As I wrote at the beginning of my post, everything is done by me, I do not use ready filters / and I do not recommend it to anyone unless it is a ready-made kit with cabinets /.Will try to explain why this project I had changed at the very beginning.
N-1 N-2
графика.JPG графика-1.PNG
Передаточная х-ка фильтра.PNG N-3
Схема Фильтра.PNG N-4

Сравнение Z  2 W26FX001.PNG
N-1Characteristics of the speaker without filter,we have a peak of 106 dB
N-2 Characteristics of the speaker with a filter.
Everything else is understandable.
What should I choose in this situation?
-1 option, add one more 18 FX001,
-2 option,remove one 26 FX001,
I chose a new project with 4 identical speakers:
1 х 26 FX001, 1х 22 FX001, 1х 18 FX001 , T 25 CF002
