Thanks Danny! One nice thing is that I can easily move the ones in the middle when occasionally watching movies. I can store them away and the process takes about 30 seconds. I treated the left wall with 4 absorption panels as per your suggestion.

Thank you Delta77 I appreciate your comment.

A little over 20 years on and off but the only experience I had with open-baffles in my system was a pair of Magnepan SMGa back in the days. My audio journey all started when I was 16 and decided to buy vintage equipment rather than visiting the usual stores...a nice MC240 tube amp and a pair of Kef 104/2 speakers for the equivalent of US1500$  :green:

Jay!! Thank you so much for bearing with me and investing so much time in my project. I would recommend your flat packs to just about anyone! Especially when fully assembled/finished haha  :green:

David,

Those look great! Glad you got them up and running. Now for the fun  :thumb:

When you are ready to install the No-Rez, if the insides are slick and shiny, be sure to scuff them otherwise the No-Rez won't stay stuck.

Mike,  that  no -rez will  not come off that paint... it  grabs it unbelievably well As long as it's clean, no dust,  it will   not come off.

Jay,

I've had it come unstuck when applied over a smooth topcoat so I scuff sand with 320 or 400 grit.

gotcha, maybe it's the type of  finish ?   No issues with   this  high quality automotive clear coat... the self adhesive of the no-rez grabs it and even if you don't   press it, it's  damned hard to get off.    I've stuck no-rez to  quite a few different finishes and so far,    this clear seems to be  what it likes best.

Quite possibly. I use finishes designed for furniture.

The modular 2x12 H-Frame flat packs from Jay are here.  Danny sent 4 - SW-12-16FR and will be here tomorrow.  The HX300's, connectors and cabling are here.

Time for some gluing and installing during the holidays!

Finally got busy and glued up another set of amp boxes.    Wrapped them in   the leftover  Applewood (Tineo)



these will be sprayed in flat  lacquer to match  another set of Applewood subs we have here..

Here's a few  pics  after  some  low sheen lacquer ( I like the look of  this on wood) and fitting  an amp.




Now this pair of Applewood  "demo" fianlly have their matching   amp boxes
