Default Attempt at larger picture

I am new to picture posting so I am trying to figure out how to send a picture that is larger but not too large.

Thanks Scottmoose, I really appreciate all the guideance I received from all of your posts.

The speakers are breaking in now and already sound great. The soundstage is huge......I can actually get up and walk around the singer as if she were really there in my room. I am currently driving them with CVT hybrid tube preamp and amp, and a Jolida tube cd player. I have other tube and chip amps I may try later after the speakers break in.

Here is a Photobucket link to the image. I think you can view it larger there.

The grilles are cabinet pulls.....5" centers....with a little file work to fit. They are tapered and satin black. I ordered them from yourknobs.com Just enough protection for the speaker, without blocking any of the sound.

I'm not sure which is the more worryingly named...

Anyway, those look extremely impressive -I like the contrasting finishes. Goes well with the central sculpture. Very art deco.

You know what the crowning irony of all my double horns is? I don't actually have enough room for a pair myself, other than quick prototypes. Not that I'm complaining -if they give people enjoyment, that's what matters.

Thanx Scottmoose. The sculpture isn't finished yet.......had to take time off to build the speakers.

You have to be pleased that people all over the world are experimenting with these designs. I guess one of these days one of us will owe you a pair of your own!!!!!!!!
