I am an avid semi-professional speaker designer. I used to build them at an attempt to make a living…now I build them mostly for fun. These are a three way tower design, built out of MDF and covered in ribbon mahogany veneer. The finish is a wipe on urethane finish, rubbed out with fine pumice powder…

They use Peerless and Morel drivers.

Cool! I’ve thought about giving this a try myself. Haven’t gotten around to it yet, though. I used to install car audio custom systems and my first set of home speakers were cobbled together MB quart seperates in MDF boxes. I actually designed the boxes around the Theille/Small (spelling?) parameters of the drivers. They called for alot more airspace than the manufacturer reccommended for a car audio install, that’s for sure!

Your speakers look great! Where to you buy the drivers, and do you have any good links for reviews?

A car audio install typically takes advantage of something called cabin gain…which will allow a smaller box…

I usually buy my drivers at Madisound or Parts Express.

Aggrevate? Yeah…the amp is roughly 300W…and the 10” side firing woofers will do THX reference levels at 30Hz….

Needless to say…when I wanted everyone else to listen to what I was listening to I could…

Very nice looking speakers and great craftsmanship. That looks like a massive and beautiful room where they’re located.

Don’t know much about the drivers, or how speakers work – but I do know what I like….and I like those speakers. The finish is beautiful. Good stuff.
