    Love your use of the party cups for size perspective! Tells me everything I need to know ;)

    Very nice cabinets there. Design of your own?

    I think I'll go with what I had linked if more research doesn't point me in a different direction.

    I use PSA veneer. You can do two cabinets in an afternoon easily. You have to clean out your router bit after every pass. The adhesive gums up the roller.

    I can't vouch for your particular item or vendor. I use natural wood PSA veneer bought on Ebay.

    I sure love these speakers, but they don't like the room I have them in. I'm in a 11x14 foot room with some corner bass trapping, and I'm about to put 4x4' panels to my left and right. Hopefully that helps get rid of a bit of the room. Haven't had much luck with this space with any speaker really. I do have another room that's 12x14 that I might try to move into.

    I had a question about veneer.

    I'm kind of unsure of what to buy. It seems like a PSA veneer is the easier way to go. Is this is a decent product?

    Thank you for the kind words. Good luck on your build.

    Got an aiyima a07 in and it provided a nice improvement for the amigas. I don't really think the sensitivity of these speakers is an issue at all, this little amp only does like 33w x2 @ 8ohm and that is plenty.

    After listening for awhile I think the balanced between the woofer and tweeter is fine, no need for my previously insisted high shelf. I will say I feel they lack just a touch of air which is easily added back in with a single filter. I have mine on some stands to get them to ear height while sitting. I'm consistently surprised by the low end output of the speaker and how clean it feels, they don't seem to lose coherency in the midrange when the cone is moving quite a bit.

    Here's my in room response no eq, got some corner and ceiling treatments in here. Not much I can do about the front wall cancellation, but the rest is great. That is easily the flattest mid bass I've ever had without eq. There is even a desk in front of them but I'm not seeing the usual ~150hz reflection that I've seen with all my other speakers and this desks interaction. I wonder why that is?

    They look really good . I started my Amiga build this weekend . Can't wait to hear them . Funny I went with the baffle only kit and my front baffle has squared edges , and that is what I wanted because
    I am building a custom enclosure . The rounded ones look sweet though , they just wouldn't have matched my entertainment center .

    Thanks, I'm going to wait for a new amplifier for them to arrive before I make any judgements. Just used a little smsl sa36, it's a nice little amp for testing to make sure things work but ~8w peak is probably not going to give me an accurate representation of the speakers.

    Rough ROT is that adding 1 ohm in series (somewhere along the HP) will attenuate by about -1dB.

    Got them in the studio, I find they sit perfectly with a low shelf of +1db starting at 120hz and I have a high shelf from 3k up at -1db. I was curious if there a way to modify the crossover to drop the tweeter down 1db? Probably easier to keep that in the digital domain I'd image. I have the 59 tweeter with the 2.4ohm resistor. With those EQ settings the speaker is great in room.

    And holy cow the low end is amazing on these things.

    Gotta go grab more sound barrier stuff tomorrow, but I was wondering if this crossover placement was ok.

    Great song, especially the live version on Ummagumma! Roger Waters' scream is unreal.

    I think that's the only lyric to the song.
