    Thank you for all the positive feedback
    As promised more pics and details will follow with time. It will take me another 1-2 month.

    I wonder if there are any other audio forums where there are so many absolute nut jobs!

    Congratulations Guido! They look very nice indeed.

    OMG! Freakin' fantastic Guido. I can't wait to hear your report once you have the networks completed and you get them fired up.

    From what I've seen all the others are completely overrun...

    Guido,

    Yes, it must be exhilarating to see such a big part of the project nearing completion. It takes time to do things right!

    I admire patience and persistence as well as a beautiful product. Good luck finishing this. It will be fantastic!

    Kudos to you sir. Outstanding!

    Good things come to those who wait. My main speakers were also years in the making.

    Thumbs up

    Absolutely Gorgeous!!!

    To call that man a carpenter is a great understatement. That man or woman is by far a very skilled cabinet maker.

    Congrats.

    The components to be used are:
    4x JBL 1500AL
    2x JBL 476Be
    2x JBL 045Be-1
    Thanks to Giskard for his help to get these incredible stack of componets together!

    I must confess that all crossover parts are still sitting on the shelf and I didn't manage to make the crossovers yet. I bet I'll be fast when the cabinets are here.

    I will post some progress here but it will need some time as I'll do it right.

    VERY IMPRESSIVE GUIDO!

    How did you modify the 800Hz filter to accommodate the 8 ohms woofers?

    Wow! Very well said!
