Absolutely gorgeous! The best audio-photo I've seen in a long time.

PS: The new CHPs in a .25cf PE box that Dave graciously advised me on are coming. During my last woodshop class on Saturday I just learned how create a template and use a router so that the drivers will mount flush! ...its starting to get real fun.....

if you're talking about the boxes; flat sliced red oak veneer - 2 coats "Swing" Steel Blue Satin Varnish

hold on, these are small enough to ship

if it's the drivers, them too

Default with TB W3-595

didn't realize small cabinets are much easier to build... Planet10 suggested the dimensions, and I use them as PC speakers with mainly near field listening. Unlike most of the drivers seen here, these are relatively cheap.

For their purpose with limited driver excursion sound very good. At high volume driven by t-amp clone, cones breakup, but to be expected. Good cabinet for the driver as PC speakers.

more details of the build here: Fonken variant with TB W3-593SF

The whole setup is a thing of beauty! I love the cabinet color and it's just set off by the green drivers......what eye candy, I wonder if they taste as good as they look

Take a bit to talk me out of those But anything is possible.

Not clear in the picture above is that these have corian tops. The top was choosen to compliment the "blue" stain. When blue turned to green (not the 1st time i've had that happen to me), i made drivers to suit.
