They remind me of the Ford GT40 Le Mans car. Dual racing stripes. Really slick work. Your speakers, (all), and your room refinement.

The kits came in yesterday afternoon (ahead of schedule). I had some time this afternoon so I decided to throw em together....

Looks like Wayne threw in Solen caps in the crossover... it's a win/win! 😎

I need to get better at taking more progress pictures during build and assembly, but I always seem to get lost in these builds and neglect it.

What I like about this particular build is that all the materials (aside from the kit components) have been sitting around in my shop for years now. It's almost like a way of cleaning up or should I say clearing out.

I decided to build some stands for these speakers also using material I had kicking around. The stands are built from 3" schedule 40 PVC and concrete gravel mix. The closet flanges (toilet mounts) go on the top of the 3" to set the speakers on (I'm not sure yet if I'll use Velcro, screws or both.)

I was also thinking about how I'd smooth the concrete bases. With most concrete work this is usually done the next day after removing the forms...with a sponge float using mortar cement.

But after another look, I decided I like the rough look after all.

More pics to come once I get them set up in the basement to run em in...

Got them hooked up and running in!

What's funny (and unintended) is the toilet closet flange mounted under the speaker... it works perfect for adjusting the speaker toe in.
Just always be sure to put Vaseline when dry fitting PVC or you could have a hell of a time getting the fittings separated!

What a lineup! That is slick. With or without the vaseline. I'm sure the toilet flanges laying around are unused. Right? What a way to clean up your workshop.

Yup. That's gotta feel good. And isn't that why we all save stuff? Except you're the only one that had enough of the right things to get something completely done Smile

Yes!
I had six new closet flanges pvc. Once the pvc is primed and glued its almost impossible to get apart again, your more likely to break it.
Point is it would be hard to have "used" pvc parts ...
