One more question, is Douglas fir ok to use for the internal bracing or should I use hardwood as in the plans? I also have extra MDF on hand.

Any of those are fine for bracing. I'd use the MDF.

Thanks, another question, where's the best place to get unfaced R13 insulation? I can only find it faced in my area. Is it easy to remove the facing? Would it be ok to leave the facing on for the top/side/front parts of I remove it for the horizontal sections?

It's very easy to remove. Just peel it right off. Remove the backing from all sheets.

Before I put the backs on, how does this insulation look? I did top, one side, front wall up to the 2nd brace, and spanning the braces. Nothing goes on the bottom right?

Finished my towers today, in white duratex.

I did apply the logos after this photo, they sound great!

That looks fantastic! Really good job!

It reminds me of my very first pair of one Pi speakers 'cause I painted 'em white just like that. That's for the chance to reminisce!
