I like them with Living Color, Aerosmith, the remaster of Megadeths Countdown to Extinction [UDCD 765] - they all sound great. Some of the Metallica work is not the best match. This could also be the amplifiers fault, its more on the light side (SET). But, they are very detailed, big wide soundstage - easy to pinpoint instruments and vocal. The plan for the winter is two subwoofers to get some serious punch in the lower department. Its not realy needed, but....

The loadspeaker is Ron Clarke Dallas II

Ron Clarke Horns

Excellent enclosure, no need for any BSC

Your speakers and room are incredible. I wish my room looked like that.
If you decided to use a sub I have heard to use multiple smaller subs to get an even bass distribution.
and check out these pearl white amps this guy built, next door on the tube's thread. What a cool match they would be with your system.

I built these based on Zaph's B3S design to match my TA2020 build.

Instead of going with Zaph's box enclosure I used some teardrop-shaped vases of around the same volume - they're made of spun bamboo and quite rigid. I used the B3N instead of the B3S because a square frame wouldn't suit this enclosure (aesthetically speaking). Using lots of damping and a HPF at 120hz.

The sound is as expected. Outstanding mids with clear, but a little bright, highs. Excellent detail for my jazz tastes (modern piano) and responds very well to nuanced vocalists like Feist and Regina Spektor. Not so good for rock.

Next step is to add subs. I'm thinking two paralleled in separate boxes, bi-amped with the B3Ns, and through PLLXOs.

Another set of uFonkens I just finished as a wedding gift for a friend. I used Dark Walnut Teak Oil finish followed by 5 coats of Minwax wipe-on poly. The veneer is White Birch Band-It paper-backed. My previous set I used the iron-on Red Oak from Band-It (can be found at Lowes/Home Depot) so with this set it was a learning experience on how to get the veneer to stick. There are few bubbles but they still came out great.

Nice job, Chuyler!
I'm looking to build some computer speakers. Those could be it!

These things are quite stunning (as in, how the h can those little things be making that music!!)

(Mark Fenlon also has a pair -- i'm currently listening to a stacked pair in the big room )

If you want to borrow a pair to try i'm sure that can be arranged.
