    Very inexpensive stands. Black prefinished shelving. Cut, hot glued to keep things in place, then screwed together. I may make some C shaped stands by laminating straight pieces with finger joints. If I don't like these. 5 degree tilt.

    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.

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

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

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

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

    Those really are coming along nicely.

    Are you adding JPW to the mix???

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