Thank you for your question, At this stage I cannot test the speakers due to not having the equipment, I have ordered it, and as soon as I have tested I will post the results..All I can offer at this stage is the predicted response.. But as with most things, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. To my old ears, they cause goosebumps or tears..sometimes both.. .

One thing I am certain of however is the the room that they are in needs further treatment, High Mid reflections are being,,,problematical.. Having listened to them out in open space...

All built on a budget, these are no-name Chinese Drivers cost around 300 for all 10 drivers, the subwoofer drivers we re-tasked from an tatty old Zachry Isobaric Ported Sub, so the drivers had never seen daylight. All in all, Ive listened to many systems at all different price brackets and I'm extremely happy with these. Although they are not finished, that is primer grey paint and none of the inter-cabinet hardware is fitted yet, Eventually they will be prepped and 2 packed in a yet undecided color. All MDF construction varying from 1/2 to 1.1/2 inches thick, No two sides are flat or parallel so at some stage when I do finish them I will not be able to listen to them for some time.

This picture taken very early in project obviously, shows that I have used laminated MDF rather than one piece, reasoning is you get more hard surfaces in the laminates so stronger, and you can stagger the joins where one curve meets another, there are no parallel sides on this cabinet and only the back is flat, front leans away from the listener as the drivers get shallower, both the 12" and the 8" have their own volumes "sealed" and some of the internal bracing is visible in this pic..
