    Yes, Paul Carmody was nice enough to share the dimensions and crossover design with us in this thread:

    I have recently purchased all parts and have slowly begun building.

    Do you have the crossover mark-ups for the center channel? I did not notice them anywhere in this thread. Also do you have an approximate price for the center channel speaker parts and a BOM?

    That's a hell of a setup!

    Re: Sunflower HT/Music LCR Build

    I finally finished & setup the OS surrounds to compliment the Sunflower LCR/skinny Turtles build, and thought it time for a little update here on TT (and some pics from a real camera instead of the cell phone).

    I unplugged the Sunflower mains (which I have been appreciating more and more), and substituted these two little gems to break them in. I now understand the hype surrounding the OS designs. These are simply the little speakers that could. Very small in size, very BIG on sound. They played far lower than I thought they might, and as they broke in for a few days just became nicer and nicer to listen to. I felt almost guilty relegating these to lowly surround duties as I moved them to the rear of the room. I have to build a pair for my computer now :rolleyes: .

    The completed HT sounds fantastic. Have only done basic sound level matching, next up measurements and tweaking.

    No clue as I purchased materials for the build concurrently. I'd guess about 1/2 depending.

    Ah thanks. Any idea how much you ended up spending on just the main L+R (my future future project)?

    five pieces? Unless I'm being temporarily stupid (never discount this possibility), I only see three (L,C,R).

    At the end of the day, how many hours ad how much money do you think you put into them?
    Thanks for the compliments all. My tally shows $1692 usd total for building the five pieces. My last project cured me of keeping build logs, but I estimate 10 weeks at ~ 10-15 hrs/wk so around 125 hrs total for the Sunflowers (plus design/drawing time, time spent selecting/ordering parts, etc.).

    Ah, beautiful. I've wanted to duplicate Paul's gorgeous Sunflowers since I first heard them several years ago.

    As the Aussies would say, "That's s.e.x on a stick." :D

    Got it, though I'm sure comb filtering will make them sound different .

    I saw Dayton used them on the RSS HF subs, so thought I might try them on the speaker wire/box interface as well (after measuring contact resistance, and performing a not so scientific grunt pull test the connectors would not give).

    Not necessarily, there are arguments about thier connectivity/clarity differences, but that is what my budget TMWW design is using, I just thought it was funny, and was teasing you... :p
