They sure look nice but for that money id rather buy a big house or an aston martin, anyway thanks for posting that, they are kinda like my design, same theory behind them.

Finaly had time to cut and fit one of the baffles today, looking just as i wanted, finishes them nicely i think.

I figured that may give you a few more ideas, just for reference.

Oh, almost forgot. I don't see any fasteners for the drivers, along the beveled edge. Other than possibly small screws, how did you do that?

The screws that you can see fit the front finishing baffle, the baffle you see is not the main baffle that the speakers are bolted to, each bass unit has 8 m6 bolts screwed into steel T nuts hammered into the rear of the inside baffle, the baffle screws you can see in this photo are actualy m6 hex bolts screwed into worm nuts that are screwed into the rear front baffle, this can be seen in my other photos in earlier posts.

If you look up a couple of paragraphs I mention veneering the side panels, I think it should look pretty cool with the rest in satin black.
