Here's a whimsical OB clock radio speaker experiment that turned out well. I had a muddy clock radio and some nice looking but hard to mount surplus infinity drivers sitting around gathering dust.
Super clear and spacious on voice, the clock radio amp already has a midrange pass filter so the capacitors and inductors were not necessary.

My build of an MJK OB design with a Fostex FE167E and 2 Eminence Alpha 15a per side. 1.5" oak ply with Zebrawood veneer for baffles, found a man in town to custom build a base with steel plate and pipe bracing to hold baffles, then painted with Rustoleum spray.

Each baffle started at 20X40 per spec but knocked one off the workbench and had to trim to 17.5". Using an Onkyo TX-SR805 for preamp, DBX223 for active crossover and Adcom GFA-2535 to run bass and highs.

It's very pretty.

..I did spot a problem with the design though.
