Default New bookshelfs for Mark Audio Alpair 10M

I've moved houses and needed new bookshelfs for my office. I started it as Covid-19 project but got stuck on the lack of wood (also at my suppliers), but finally they are finished... I used Mark Audio Alpair 10M drivers out of an older project that i disregarded (my first build with Mark Audio) as i never listened to them anymore and putted them in a 17.9L ported box tuned to 45Hz and added a little LCR notch filter to flatten the sound in the treble.

I'm very happy with the build that happened this weekend with the help of a friend known here as humbledeer. We did also build a subwoofer at the same time for her setup. She is working on the final cad files of my builds, wich i will publish freely here with all the details. But here is the first picture of my build, still in a raw testing state. Sanding and finishing will happen later after i installed myself fully in this new house because it's still a mess of cardboard boxes...

A little elaboration: The boxes we built are built with rabbets. This way, they fit together effortlessly. The pictures above don't all show it, but in CAD they are. These are only the pictures I had on hand on mobile when I posted this.

The plans are here.

This PDF should have everything you need to build these yourself.
