I used Weldbond on my passives.  It has a strong bond between wood and the foam of the passives and what is really great is that it dries transparent, helps keep the job neat and clean looking.  I use that glue on a lot of my projects, quite happy with it.

I have never tried taking them off, so I don't know how well that would go.  I expect the glue to have a strong bond, which is what you want for a speaker.

Ok I finished the first one and have been doing a direct comparison with the cabinets they were in which were plans I got with the speakers. I assumed the HDT's would blow them out of the water but it was not so. There was definitely more bass in the HDT's but the midrange was lacking. I'm not worried about bass though because I am using the WO which creates plenty of bass. The only thing I did different was use thicker egg crate but ZYGI said it was ok to do. Someone else said in another thread that they removed the bottom foam in the bottom chamber to help with the midrange. Maybe I need to get the DFR8's to hear their full potential. IDK any ideas?

The bookshelf speakers in the pic are not hooked up. They just wanted to be in the pic to.



I finished the second and set them up and they do have a great sound stage! Vocals in the center and the other instruments placed where they would be live at a concert! Although the other cabinets had pretty good sound stage as well. I have my old system setup so that I can swith back and forth to see how much better this one is. The other system is just a Pioneer receiver and the tritrix speakers I built from partsexpress and both systems use the BASH 500 amp with the WO with the decware 10's. (Nails coming out of the sheetrock!) The new one is the HDT's with the Audio Nirvana 8's, HRT Music Streamer II DAC, 8 watt tube amp diy kit from tubedepot.com and the WO. I play FLAC files from Foobar.



The new system is so much better!!!! A DAC is a must have when
playing music from the comp.  When I swith to the old system the sound seems condensed and confined to small space. I have to turn the Pioneer amp way up to keep up with the new system. I only have the tube amp turned up half way and it gets really loud!
