Thanks for the comments, guys.

@Miney:  The subs are bamboo with a bit of a reddish tint to it and a sturdy finish.  My pictures don't do justice - they are beautiful.  Jim had advised to go with veneer - which would've looked the same and saved a few dollars - but in the end I went with bamboo plywood instead.  They weigh 160 lbs each; MDF (with veneer) would've been probably more like 250.  Jim had forgot to take pictures before I picked them up; I sent him some that if he can clean up well enough, maybe he will end up putting one on his website.

I did see some veneered speakers while I was at his shop that were really amazing.  It was pretty cool to see them partway through the process and not fully assembled; not sure how they get the veneer onto extreme curves, but they do.

Beautiful, Bigload!  I think I may have seen your mains in person at the Salk shop.  Awesome setup!

I had been waiting to get some treatments up before posting pics of our prized Salk based system.
When we started a gut and rebuild of an older and problematic (from an audio standpoint) basement, I had no idea it would turn out as well as it did.
Despite a 7' ceiling and a lot of reflective surfaces, it has all come together very nicely, and sounds incredible.






Extra thanks to Jim, Mary, and a great crew!
