I think they look nice.

Is the base a cutting board?

How does it all sound?

Yes the base is a wooden cutting board from Wallmart. $2.99 apiece. I`m very suprised by the sound. These Aura 3" drivers have a really nice midrange with astonishing bass when compared to other 3"ers. I put these together as a lark to see what i could build for less than $100. I`d have to say that in a smallish room these do really well. Try a pair and see. They`re only $20 each.

Default Cutting Boards!

That is clever. Good eye! My wife hates going shopping with me for that reason, always looking at things and coming up with ideas. Lately I have been working on custom tap handles, and it is driving her nuts.

Cabinets are pvc composite fenceposts from Lowes with caps glued on with liquid nails and sound deadening foam. Posts are 41" high with the drivers at 7" from the top. I stuffed above the driver with polyfill and used open cell foam behind the drivers. Ports are 8.5" up from the bottom with a diameter of 1.5" and a length of 2.5". I used wooden cutting boards from Wallmart [$2.99] for the bases.
Suprisingly good sound. I`m going to add a pair of Dayton nd20 button tweeters this weekend as the highs are a little rolled off.
Let me know what you think if you try them, Steve.

sounds interesting, since the ready-made cabinets are at Lowes.
