I suspect that is why THX sets the crossover to 80 HZ.

When spoken, some sentences that make no sense in writing make sense, if only to the speaker. If you know what I mean?

Congratulations on a beautiful project. The frames on the panels are particularly nice - but then, so is your garage/workshop! Love that workbench and vice.
Have you considered H-baffle subs to continue the dipolar theme, or would that be too intrusive in the room?

Thanks. Yes, I'm a little bit short of space for some H-baffle subs but I may give them a try in the future. I alreade have 4 12" woofers that would work well for them.

Here's a shot of the speakers in my AV room with all the electronics. My next project will be to build a nice center cabinet to hold all the equipment in one place and, more importantly to match the quarter sawn white oak speakers.

You're very talented... I can't wait to see that cabinet you're planning to build.
