I think it is 8-9, lots of stuff going on. Multiple horn loaded bandpass calculations, you have the issue of where the midrange ports should be placed in order to get proper mid/HF time alignment. Both don't always match up perfectly with simulations so you have some extra fun thrown in there. The general construction/assembly is much more difficult then a regular speaker box. Crossover design can be a little tricky too. Overall much easier to get good results with more conventional approaches.

You think active Xover would be a better fit for a project like this ?

If you were starting over with a $650 budget on drivers per speaker , today what parts might you choose ?

Based on what you've learned would you change anything and why ?
