I’m planning a build of your Kairos. I’ll be making the boxes myself using appleply with walnut veneer for the cabinets and and teak veneer for the baffles and plan on doing some dovetail work for the joinery on the boxes. Hoping the exterior appearance will do justice to the sound quality I’ve heard your speakers generate!
I have a couple of questions with regards to cabinet dimensions (being a complete newbie when it comes to audio engineering).
Firstly, I believe you mention here on the meniscus forum that the baffle width on your original Kairos was 9”, but the meniscus plans show it as 8.5”. Will this impact sound quality in any way? If so, what would you recommend and why?
Also, I have seen some folks mention that they increased the depth of the cabinets above that shown on the designs. What benefits (if any) would this provide, and would this require any modifications to port location etc? I can see that larger box volume might = deeper bass, perhaps?
Look forward to hearing from you - thanks in advance!
