looks sharp even though Im not a fan of the high gloss piano look. And I must ask, why the white ring around the tweeter?

Very nice finish on the cabinets. I especially like the port solution and I would really like to see a near-field measurement on the port.

However, I don't think the appearance and the look of the drivers fully harmonize with the great finish of the enclosure. I also think that SB Acoustics could have done a better job to make the two Satori drivers aesthetically match each other better, but of course that hasn't anything to do with their performance.

Making two different designs make sense since the the two enclosure designs are quite different and will possible require a different cross-over design.

I do not know at the moment if the factory made cabinets will be offered.
I sure will measure the drivers in this cabinet and also the port output.
Yes, the silver ring draws some attention. Maybe i can talk SB into making a version with a black ring. The ring can also be sprayed black quite easy.
The cabinets look better during the day then on the photos i did at night with flash.
I did now some photos without flash.

The white ring does make the tweeter instantly identifiable though, which might have been what they were aiming for even though it does look out of place.

I sez make the woofer match the tweeter. To me contrast of colors with the baffle is better...

Great stuff Joachim - well done!

I would love to build one of those once/if the cabinets become available.
