Hopefully, 3 pictures says more than a thousand word

The corners is actually 5 pieces of MDF cut in 9 degree angle on both sides.

Thank you carpenter & Mike Gergen!

Well this thread says "system pictures and description" so I just want to show you the electronics, that maybe isnt something you are familiar with.
Like the Seas drivers, the dac, preamp and poweramps are Norwegian also, from the brand Abrahamsen. Mr Per Abrahamsen was the man behind "Elektrocompaniet" that I suppose is something some of you have heard of.

If you look at the picture below, you can see the HT stuff in the middle and lower right. On the left side and upper right si my "hifi-gear".
Its a Logitech Duet as my main music source, then Abrahamsen DAC (V6), Abrahamsen Preamp (V3), and two Abrahamsen Poweramps (v4). Actually I have three poweramps but only two of them are in use in this setup.

If you are cuorius, you can look for info here: V Series by Abrahamsen

Speakers are active 3-way: seas 27TDFC, ScanSpeak 15S/8530K01, ScanSpeak 21W/8555-01, via kx project drivers.

Enclosure is Tasmanian blackwood bird's-eye figure veneered in beautiful MDF Grills need to be redone because they are two layers with the staples showing through one of them.

Staples---what staples?

Love what you're up to, they're going to look great!

What's up with the braided cable? This is new to me. Looks professional, sensational.

Tell me about those drivers. They look like they produce a smooth tone--probably get loud too...

But they are not done yet. I need to redo them. You can see staples that attach the screen door screen under the fabric.

I go for cheapness. But I don't want value-engineered drivers. So all my drivers were bought second hand, so I could build something relatively cheap. The cable is an essentially cheap or free DIY cable: DIY audio cables

They are too loud for my apartment. They sound good. Does any one notice a difference between flac and mp3's (even 320)? Vifa XT25 might have been a better choice, but I couldn't find them for $50 a pair shipped like the Seas. Also a 15W with a big magnet or 15M might have been a better choice for a 3-way, but I got the 15S's for $160 shipped for both. And the 21W's were $180 a pair bought locally.

I could have gotten some Seas Excel W15CY-001 instead of the ScanSpeak 15S/8530-K01's, but I feared the harmonic distortion between 1-3 KHz. Just didn't make sense to use a driver like that for midrange to me. Also the ScanSpeak looks much better to me, even though I rarely look at them.

Nice. Does the slot in ther rear mean the woofer is bass-reflex? Or is it the termination of a tapered TL?

Yes. I use WavPack (also a lossless format) and MP3 (VBR APE LAME EAC) and I do notice a difference in sound quality. The Wavpak files are about 3 times the size of the MP3 files so they are not as portable but I consider them a good half way point between CD and MP3.
