Default Completed Frugel-Horn 3's finished in walnut

Completed these a few weeks ago, complete with semi-matching Center speaker. The Alpair 7.3's have about 150 hrs on them and they are sounding very nice! I am enjoying the detail found in the upper range... the decaying ring of a tri-angle or a snare-drum hit.

Building these was an exercise in vacuum bag laminating some raw walnut crotch veneer, that I purchased from Goby Walnut, to 3/4" BB. This wasn't a quick process for my meager skills, but I am pleased with how the finished result looks!
