I was inspired to do the 32" tall model when building a custom pair for my friend David Webber (of Webber Guitars). He and his wife obviously love music and wanted something unobtrusive that would be clear and musical, a speaker that would bring music into their home and lifestyle and not bring attention to itself. My first thought was the Pan but I wanted a bit more bass and something that would not require a stand, so this model... 32" tall front firing vent so it can be placed near the wall and a upward sloping baffle.
This is definitely a niche speaker, either the stand mount Pan or the Muse would be the first choice for most but there are situations where the room/house decor and lifestyle will dictate a smaller floor standing speaker and this is that system.
here is a photo with the first coat of oil... btw this is a very special pair made of largely instrument grade walnut. (the cost of the wood is as almost much as the speaker system!)
