Toy Maker,
I love the look of your speakers. How about an exotic hardwood panel and sub box, with 1/2" rounded edges all around the box. Make the brackets and feet out of a lighter colored hardwood, and build it like a tank. I believe a speaker should be ultra rigid, (like it grew there).

It looks like you have a good design, and you know you can make the ribbon sound good. So, I vote for building a sub enclosure, experiment with it till you have it as flat and tight as possible, then add the ribbon panel. If the sub enclosure is extremely over built, it would minimize any resonance effect on the ribbon. On the last sub I built, I laminated two pieced of 3/4" MDF together with a dampening spray. The wall thickness was 1 1/2" thick and heavily braced, with a healthy coat of dampening spry on the inside. It was rock solid with very little surface resonance and the sound is tight. (Dynaudio uses three layers, bonded together with dampening material for all there cabinets.) I would even build the ribbon panel the same way, hardwood/MDF/hardwood. And router the Harwood so the ribbon is only mounted to the MDF.

Oh, did I mention that I have a tendency for overkill. And the speakers will be so heavy, shipping would be out of the question.

Its going to be used equipment when I sell it, so it may as well be used equipment when I buy it.

What?
I was joking about my overkill method on speaker cabinet building. My version would be very heavy.
Besides, I have a job and I'm not into carrying large cumbersome objects.
