      Great looking speaker. Solid building. Eh, live and learn on the finish. I like it though. Really impressed with how good the crossover looks. My first one looked like something only a mother could love. Good job. You have the speaker building bug now. Enjoy. Robert.

        Thanks for all the kind words. I built these at home, my current wood working tools are a garage sale Delta table saw, saws-all, automotive DA sander and a new craftsman router I got just for this. Power is a pair Dynakit 40 watt mono blocks, that are 15 years older than I. I did give them a service before pressing back into duty. Tube amps are a beautifull thing.
        I am very pleased with the sound quality of the tritrix. seems like I am listening to all my cds for the first time. My next build will be a floor standing speaker. and yes I am a Maiden fan
