    Yep, 3/8" #6 screws. The back panels are removable to allow for the installation of the driver and cap. I glued in cleats to allow the rear panels to be sealed and screwed in.

    Nice. You had to use super short screws to rear mount those drivers and not poke through the front.

    The rear panel is removable?

    I just finished up a Vigor Trio set made from walnut and a repurposed Mirage Nano Sub with a TB W6. They will be a gift for some family members.

    Can’t remember where i got those binding posts. Found them in my speaker project supply cabinet. The trim rings make the TC9 look much nicer.

    These speakers sound great! Off axis I miss having a tweeter but on axis, it’s great.

    I need to order another flat pack set from you!

    They look great ceiol! I see you printed the TC9 trim rings. What binding posts are those? The full Trio, nice. That woofer needs less than a cubic foot ported to dig deep.

    here are my Vigor speakers -- and I'm also making a subwoofer to go with them. A complete emulation of the Nola Brio Trio set. An 8 inch subwoofer ported (RSS210HO-8 with SA100 amp)

    I have also put these together after buying a set from silverD

    they are amazing -- I will try to put up pics this weekend. And if you are still making these SilverD, let me know and I'll paypal you the funds for a second set!

    I just tossed them together with the 20 uf cap inside. Nola didn't pull the gaskets so I didn't. As I told you, the Aspen cut better but these are a real visual treat with the castellated birch endgrain, almost Escheresque.

    And the fenestration, eye catching.

    Glad to hear you got them done, but sorry to hear about the surround. At least it's an inexpensive driver. Did you build the speakers so you could try out different capacitors and phase? Based on the picture above, it looks like you didn't try to rear mount the drivers. Did you pull off the foam gasket? Interested in seeing pics of the final speakers.
