    Interesting, thanks for sharing!

    From what I have been told, the idea is to create a point source system similar to some of the L Acoustics designs but with better pattern control.

    Not surprising you heard that comment. And not surprising they turned out that way. Very nice work.

    Thanks very kind of you. It appears you have more faith in my skills than she does.

    During the many weeks it took me to build them and apply the 12-14 coats of lacquer I kept hearing her say, “Why are you putting in that much time on those hideous structures? A U-Haul box will look better.” Ouch!

    So when she told me how much she actually liked the way they turned out, it was especially satisfying.

    The fact that sonically the system turned out better than expected was even more icing on the cake!

    Mr Widget, those stands are wonderful!! Excellent attention to detail, but you have always shown this in all of the work I have seen here! The subs are certainly peaking my curiosity. Thanks for sharing your new system, looks like a wonderful place to escape.
    Always fun learning more.......

    Finally!

    Over Thanksgiving I was finally able to finish the project and install the projector and surround speakers properly! For almost a year now I have had the projector sitting on a wall mounted temporary shelf between these two bookcases.

    As I am sure many of you can relate, life gets in the way and that causes some projects to move forward at a glacial pace.

    As seen above, in the evening the surrounds are well hidden in the shadows, but during the day they are more visible, but even though they seem to jump out at you in these pictures, there is enough going on in the room that the speakers are not the first thing you notice.

    The Meyer Sound MM4-XP speakers really seem more like something Bose would come with, but they are capable of kicking butt... and are packed in these micro cabinets.
