I'm going to keep this thread on track and upload more Images of some speakers I used with the TWO.

I built these for fun.

I would have to say that my favorite is the "bobsled" (the wide shallow 3ways)

second would be the Curly maple 7" 2-ways.

So Jason, what was the idea behind the "Bobsled"?  You just wanted to try a wide baffle?  Or something else?

yeah kind of a Sonus faber knockoff I guess although they really dont look to much like them.
they image surprisingly well.

Is that second pair from the top using Dynaudio drivers? I would really be interested in how those sound with the Two.

that pair used the Hi-Vi D6.8 and Hi-Vi Q1R tweeter and a simple series network @3200hz.
I later changed the tweeter to an Usher and the woofer to a Dynavox and found them to be MUCH more listenable :)

First, beautiful work! 

How would you describe the imaging of the bobsled?  NM, just read it in the above post.

so you guys know.
I did not design the bobsleds I found the "poor mans strad" here http://www.troelsgravesen.dk/PMS.htm
and changed it a little to suit what I wanted.
I used series network on the top drivers @ 3800hz and a standard 12db @100hz on the woofer.

I used a Dayton Ref 8" woofer
Sb acoustics 5" mid
Fountek neo cd1.0

simple speaker, low cost and great performance

you can see some peoples opinion's of them here at our last Arizona diy event I hosted
