    Late to the party on this one, but wow, great job! Glad to see my finishing choices are still inspiring, though I think you did it better than I did.
    My modest builds:
    Armadillo TM, A.K.A. Lil' Dillo
    Tarkus/Armadillo build #2
    Armadillo Center Channel
    Au-Rock-O Sub
    Staining MDF tutorial

      hey all, finally got around to doing some measurements

      run off my denon in direct mode, so no EQ

      look pretty consistent. both were measured in the same location in the room at 1m (var smoothing)

      here is them in the normal locations at MLP, again no EQ, using MMM at about ~4m (13.5ft) (var smoothing)

      note the massive drop off of the tweeter, i guess at that distance it runs out of steam quick?

      here are the left speakers overlaid from 1m and 4m to illustrate the tweeter fall off, bumped up the dB offset to illustrate a bit better
