    They are the buyouts from PE. I wish I had another source though.

    The speaker stand for the center channel


    H7 2-way design
    (Clearwave Loudspeaker venture)
    I used spray can on the front baffles and a Wilsonart laminte on all other sides. The laminate was easy to work with and gives a near mirror finsih with ease.




    Dyanmic 4T
    Cabinets - Mahogany with Minwax Satin finish with "Paradigm" speaker spikes. Bi-amped left and right channel. DIY custom speaker wire.

    I built this pair to replace the Statements in my theater. The wife never warmed up to the size of the Statements. After working with Jed on the H7 design mentioned above, the Dynamic series seemed like the perfect fit.

    I think the sub keeps up with ease. I have the gain on the amp set around 35-40%, so I have plenty more power if I ever need it.

    If you stop by or want some Templeton, let me know. It usually takes 3-4 weeks to get a bottle. High demand, small supply since it is a small batch recipe and nobody knew 8 years ago it would take off so well.

    Looks great Dee! How are you liking it so far? Does it keep up with the rest of your system?

    I have heard from another gentleman I know that Templeton Rye is quite good.

    Maybe for my annual trip out to Iowa I will stop by on the way.

    Re: Deewan's various speaker builds

    Finally had some time to put the finishing touches on my DIY sub. I love the output from this thing. Finally a sub that provides deep bass but it blends PERFECTLY with the clean tight bass from the Dynamics. My last Paradigm ported sub was great, but you could tell it was a ported. This is much cleaner.

    Details:
    2 cubic foot sealed enclosure
    Dayton RSS315HF-4 12-inch driver
    BASH 500-watt amp
    Dayton Chrome Speaker Spikes

    Thanks. Here is a thread detailing the build of the theater and it mentions most of the acoustic treatment I built into the room to provide the ideal Home Theater listening enviroment.

    If you are ever on this side of the state and want to watch a movie, let me know. I always enjoy sharing my room.

    Any comments regarding differences between the statement and dynamic speakers? I'd mainly be interested in 2 channel listening but any info regard home theater would also be appreciated. Its not often you find someone who has built and lived with two such great sets of speakers.

    Thanks,
    Pete
    If you are mostly 2-channel listening and can put the Statements in their prime positions (away from the front wall and side walls), I would recommend the Statements. I wouldn't give it much thought. If you are mostly HT or AV, then I would suggest the Dynamics with the same conviction. Those are just my opinons. Bottom line, both speakers are an amazing deal for the price compared to what you would get commercially for the same amount.

    If you have specific questions about the two, feel free to PM me. Always happy to give back to this community that has offered so much help to me.

    I think I have told you elsewehere, but man those speakers are all gorgeous.

    Feel free to pour me a rocks of CR there Dee. I'm just finishing up a bottle of Crown Royal Limited Edition. A bit different from Crown Royal, smoother, not as hard bodied... but not improved enough for me to get back up to Canada for it.....
    Elijah Craig and Templeton Rye (from right here in Iowa).

    I bought those feet from PE. However, PE no longer sells them. Sorry.
