  1. Should work out well then. Yes foam is perfectly fine. Cut to shape but oversized and stuff it in there. Yes it will be a tiny bit lossy. It doesn't matter. No need for wood blockers unless the foam makes your OCD trigger. My top pick for these is still the NSW6021-6 Eminence, but the Lavoce should do fine. The Eminence gives some advantages in response smoothness, ultimate headroom, distortion and compression performance but at increased cost. Unless you run them hard enough to start straining the Lavoce or 21SW152-4 driver most of that will not come into play though. In a home? Not so sure the extra guts are necessary.

  2. I just finished A/B'ing a Skram with a LaVoce and the Eminence. There is a slight difference in the sound quality to my ears but it could be just as much a placement issue as timbre. I didn't keep track of the cabinet placement when I swapped out drivers. That's how slight the difference is to me. I say go for it with the cheaper drivers. I also picked up some more plywood from my supplier (Nashville Plywood) yesterday. Supply is back on track and prices are down slightly. They were of the opinion that eventually the price will come down almost to where it was before all the crazy started. I like your setup. I just finished my version of a 4 12" driver MEH and I find myself just sitting in my shop listening. Going 2 way from the Skram to the MEHs.

  3. Being a dual SKRAM owner and using the B&C 21SW152 for the last 1.5 years in this setup, I agree with Jay's description of how they sound. They are simply too brutish and over excited the room even at lower volumes. - This is in my 2 car garage/workshop. They are War Machines, these things kick ass and people take notice immediately. When paired with the right tops, like the Danleys or Meyers in my case, you're going to rock the house. If I was to build a system for in my house, I'd go with the BC 18SW152 in a dual setup or something much much lighter. The 21's are just too much and there sound doesn't really fit properly in a small space. (Coming from a Strictly Bass Head Opinion and not a home theater guy opinion...yet) Tops usually are not pointed so far down, was in backyard
