Hi Joe,
Thanks, that means a lot coming from you. Gyuri is exactly right, I'm using a fairly inexpensive Canon made a couple of years ago. I find that taking technically good photos is less challenging than finding interesting visual ways to present the subjects.

One thing you should mention in your description is how solid and HEAVY these speakers are! Even with none of the drivers installed I had a very hard time lifting one. And I'm not a whimp, I helped a friend carry some VMPS RM40's up a flight of stairs last night (they are almost 6 feet tall and 250 pounds each). The Elsinores are stout!

Here are some shots of the Elsinore's. Just waiting on the felt to arrive, and still need to bolt in the speaker spikes (i hope they handle the weight!).

Those look awesome, great veneer work! I hope mine turn out that well.

Speaking of felt, I was wanting to try something - namely, using a felt of different density for each of the 2 layers. I want to use a fairly dense, wool based felt for the bottom layer, and a less dense, more synthetic felt for the top layer. I believe this will help spread the affect of the felt over a broader range than a uniform density would. Thoughts?

Yesterday we form-cut and installed the stiff board fiberglass in the speakers. Stiff board fiberglass was much, much better to work with than loose fiberglass or other "floppy" materials that you have to glue down or leave "floating". This stuff just got cut to shape, then friction fit to the different areas. It's in there pretty tight!

Now, all that's left is for the ports to get here so we can cut that out, clear the sawdust, attach the top and bottom of the cabinet, and install the drivers! Should be done in the next few days

can anyone suggest a nice diy amp that runs nicely with the elsinore speakers? Not only tube, but also in solidstate etc. I have no idea how these speakers respond to various amp types, so please inform me. Also, atm i would be looking at a relatively non expensive route as i intend to build an amp first, then later maybe the speakers, and further on another amp. But all comments welcome

I have used a Hiraga 20W and a ACTRK600 and also a Denon AVR1905
all are slid state and worked well, i think the majority of solid state or tube amps in general will work these speakers have a medium to high efficiency and represent an easy amplifier load so... lots of amps will perform well.

Thanks for the input there, what about chipamps? Had any experience with some type of gainclone with a set of elsinores?
