Default Ellam Flex 3-Way speakers build by Triticum Audio

I have been drooling over nearly every speaker on Troels Gravesen website for years and had began learning some wood working skills, but it was quickly appearnt that without the proper tools and skills I needed a pro in order to achieve my goals of owning a pair of Ellam FLEX 3w speakers. So a couple of months ago I posted here and asked if anyone in the Pacific northwest could help out. I was pointed to thejessman and after contacting him things took off! I know it's not my diy but I wanted to show his work and the nearly finished speakers off to the diy community

Below is his build log. Can't wait to hear these beasts !

In the beginning there was just wood.

I have been window shopping on his website so long that it is beginning to be embarrassing that i haven't built anything yet.

Very nice choice and very nice build. Be sure to post some listening impressions later

Hey Freddi,
I think you will have to get back in the queue - I have 4 in the pipeline... Jesse is an amazing cabinet maker.

Nice! I went with the passive version. Did you find they had a long break in period ?

Hard to say as I was using used 15W and bass units, but new units will need a little time you will not be disappointed Troels has done a good job and the units themselves are exceptional
