Looks gorgeous, no doubt...

But if it's a Pensil, where is port at the front?

Went to the main gallery and came across the builder's explanation - the port is at the back.

I am no expert, but shouldn't that change cab characteristics?

Yeah I guess its not a Pensil from the way he explained it. I presumed he just moved the port to the back and maintained the Pensil design but apparently not. Should I remove the pic and link since its technically not a Pensil?

Really nice clean application, Chris!
Are the front cabinet edges bevelled, (or a photo artifact)?

Very handsome Chrisb!

I am pretty sure I see bevelling on the front edges.

Wow those are gorgeous! How does the 7 do as a center? How is your off axis response?

There is at least one set of Pensils in Oz, that went ahead because i suggested that mounting the driver on the back (or the sides) should be fine,

You'd probably also be fine doubling the depth, putting a terminus on the back just like the front, mounting a driver on each side & then rotating the box to make the side the front...

A sort of Alpair 12 Micro Tower? Only problem is that the tower would become pretty big...

Have you ever tried such a configuration?
