I wanted to get back to you on this - I had a few hours of listening with FLAC files of several different genre, and they display much better clarity of course, but the XO still needs a bit of a tweak, which MTG90 has already sorted out and given options.
Talking with MTG90 and following Sibuna's lead, I have some different resistors on the way to drop in to pull some of the attenuation out of the HF. Matt says the difference in box size doesn't matter too much there, esp since I have them crossed at 80hz. I'm building three different sized boxes to accommodate the different angles to the lp that are similar to the one in my drawing: 40 degrees for the sides - 21" x 9.5" baffle, 27 for the fronts - 16" x 9.5" baffle, and 52 for the rear - 21" x9.5" baffle. I was able to squeeze some more room out of my soffits by permanently mounting the boxes, which will make them easier to build, strengthen the soffit, allow for 3/4" ply instead of 1/2.
Also, I haven't seen the measurements, but the common theme is that the cones are capable of (if the CD can provide) off-axis response up to 1.9khz at 110 degrees, so all of my seats will be covered aside from the normal peaks and valleys from the room.Edited by d_c - 1/24/14 at 12:39pm
