        Looks like you'll have a very smooth flow of electrons there!

          The XOs came out pretty nice.

        Mahogany PSA veneer. Electric was out all day yesterday. I read a book.

          Stain or just oil finish going on these?

          The fit and trim work is top notch.

            The sled I made for my tiny table saw really helped with accuracy. I'm using a formula from youtube.

            Equal parts of Minwax poly, mineral spirits and boiled linseed oil. It looks good on a sample of veneer. No stain.

          One coat. i have the baffles to lay out and rout. cjd crowded the drivers to almost touch, leading to tearout and patching. I will give them a bit of space. 1/4" or so.

            4 coats brushed on, wiped off. I added more poly to the last coat. Semi gloss sheen to match the TV stand, if not the species.

          Nice - looking really good. The mix sounds similar to a danish oil. Does it progressively build up a bit of sheen?

          This is 6 coats with progressively more poly in the mix, with Johnson's paste wax.

            Those are looking really nice. Can't wait to see the front view with drivers when finished.

            Thank you. Heads up, the baffles will be painted MDF. Probably black.

          Those really are coming along nicely.

          Are you adding JPW to the mix???

            Sorry, the wax is put on after the finish dries.

            Here's the current HT setup. The S2000 L/Rs are hung off the rail. Originally I had S2000 TMs for L/R. I want the speakers to be lower, not extending above the rail. Thus, low stands with a tiltback angle to properly direct towards the MLP.

            It's possible I might construct a new minimalist center speaker/ TV stand using a wall mount bracket grafted onto a single center post. And L/R stands to match.

              8.1 sound! They look great!

            Two down. The crates put these right where I plan to position them with stands.

            These speakers sound really nice. So glad I made them. Just listening to cable music in stereo with 80 hz sub cross. As far as lightweight, still pretty heavy.

              They look great dj and glad your already pleased with their sound quality! Curious at some point how their sound compares to S2000's ... and ... stands or subwoofer stands?

                My aural memory is pathetic. The new speakers seem a bit fuller maybe? I have all 3 done now. I will listen to some epic bluray later today. Even I will not be able to tolerate those crate stands for long.

                I will post more pics when I have made some furniture progress. I have one sub in the rear corner.

              So, these are 20" x 12" x 7.5". They are braced 1/2" particle board. 1" mdf baffle with a 3/8" roundover.. I moved the woofers apart to give some meat in between the drivers. I used cjd's generic Seas crossover. These are sealed. The 1/2" thick cabs allowed some size reduction at same volume. Same baffle width.

              cjd shows 3/4" plywood vented design on his webpage. His woofers were as close together as possible. He used a 3/4" roundover. cjd drew sealed, vented and tower variations. I do not know if he built any but the vented ones on his webpage.

                Very inexpensive stands. Black prefinished shelving. Cut, hot glued to keep things in place, then screwed together. I will paint the edges black tomorrow. I may make some C shaped stands by laminating straight pieces with finger joints. If I don't like these. 5 degree tilt. I have little pointy feet I can install too.
