You can solve a lot of those problems above 10K with a phase plug instead of the dust caps.

The 800Hz is probably baffle-step.

I have one finished of two PC speakers. Using cheap Monacor 3" drivers. Cannot remember if they were 4 or 8 Ohm. Have to check that and (re)wwire accordingly.
Box is 12mm MDF, sprayed orange and fronts are 18mm pine dyed green.

Not sure about the orange, but the green sure is neat (y)

I got the orange spray cans cheaply and I really like "odd" non-standard colors. There are too many black, red and silver amps and speakers. :/

Agreed!

I found out a pattern I love for speakers by accident... I painted some a dark brown as a base, then was going to do a gloss black over top. The black spray can ran empty and got splotchy bits over the brown. I fell in love :))

Two pair of Klipsch Cornwall Clones driven by a pair of Quicksilver Mono block 8417's running 6BG6GA's. The line stage is an Aikido 6SN7/6SN7

Brought home the test gear from work and ran them thru and the results were very good. They sound very good and test pretty flat.
