Default BIB and underwear, nothing on top

First I want to thank all those who helped this newbie. In particular scottmoose, special thanks.

I built BIB with the cheapest ("el cheapo") speaker that has the right numbers to be used in BIB. (http://www.mcminone.com/product.asp?...%5Fid=51%2D075), which sells for $11 each. It is not completely finished yet, but since the result is simply astounding, I will be changing the speaker to FE107E. To see how much more the sound can improve. I still have to finish the bottom molding and thinking about baffle around the speaker

My wife thinks I must have paid lots of $$, the sounds and looks is outstanding, despite my amateurish woodworking abilities.

The pictures should be self explanatory. Sorry about the underwear showing...

They look great! I particularly like the way you've put molding around the mouth and painted it and the mouth black. This solves a big quandry for me in finishing the BIBs I working on now.

Those, are wonderful looking BIB's. I love the looks of these damn things. The view from upstairs is especially kool. Mine are very similar looking, in dark-stain Cherry veneer, with the Fostex FE168EZ. Fostex drivers in these things really rip. I think the black moulding on top and bottom really truly sets them off. Makes me think about a steel wooled Steinway black moulding top and bottom, with concentric baffle, and Walnut veneer BIB.

Elegant A+

Nice work indeed. Love the veneer; I liked that overhead shot too. Great stuff.

Actually cheap plywood, water stain, and water poly finish. never veneered before. Considering painting the cone white color (from craft shop paint, I can experiement with them since $11 each speaker...) and adding black round speaker baffle...

may have some more changes, will put up pictures. Thanks Scott for your help otherwise would have never made these.

That's cheap plywood? Hell's teeth! This is a person who claims amateurish woodworking ability? If that's amateurish, what's good supposed to be like? If I could build like that, I'd be a happy camper.

Oh my god!

What a professional looking DIY speaker I have been dreaming of.
What kind of amp are you using and what is your listening area.
How do you feel about it in playing classic and vocal.

Thank
