The photo doesn't quite do justice to the physical impression these - or any of Bernie's solid wood builds- make in the flesh. I've built my fair share of the 'trapezoid' designs, and don't even want to think about the time involved in these.

When I last heard them, I can't remember exactly which tweeter he was using, as I was most impressed by the LF performance - which really shouldn't have been much of a surprise, as I have a pair of MTMs with dual 12PW per side .

This picture, at least, has more context to judge the size, and shows the custom standmount version Bernie built in solid wood. His solid wood creations are works of art as well as good speakers.

So which planset would the 12PW and 5.2 combo be in. I currently have the Alpair 10.3 planset. I plan to make some Onkens with the 10.3's.


If I plan to make a surround system and have the 12PW/5.2's as the front L/R, and the A10s as surrounds, what would work as a center speaker?


I like the look of the solid wood speakers, any special things to know about the construction with regards to wood movement?
