Sitting here with an old friend, and hooked her up with BT access to the amp and speakers, and all of a sudden she commented on the crispness of the bass output, so we got talking, and I got digging, and went through this old thread. So, update:

Listen to these almost every day, have done for 1.5 years or so. Love them.

Tweeters are still a little bright, still needs active cross overs, but the overall sound is still clean and nice, in general.

15+ year old amp is still rocking along untouched. Win.

Fred.

Might be time for some aesthetics at some point soon:

Native NZ wood drawers out of my friend's old kitchen. Front pieces are thick enough to split in two.
Rest is 12/13mm and can be used as is, or run through a thicknesser to reduce/smooth it a little.
One draw is missing right now, but with that, I think there's enough to cover the speakers! :-)

Should look gorgeous. :-D

I carefully pulled the three drawers apart today and this is what I came up with: https://twitter.com/FredCookeNZ/status/ ... 2937778176

One of them had been repaired and someone had punched three nails below the surface, so I had to be clever to get them out without damage: https://twitter.com/FredCookeNZ/status/ ... 9327467520
