thanks everyone, since my original post on the 6th July I have had help from Danny and a friend here nearby, Danny approved this attached layout, to go under the base of the cabinet but a Dannys recomendation
 of the vertical inductor coil has scuppered that plan  :D   Im now making three separate boards to go in through the speaker hole is the usual way.  I haven't soldered them yet, my little iron is too weak !


Really improved the look. Nice!
Would love to see these speakers produce more bass, It's an interesting speaker, but they need subwoofers. That's four boxes in my family room which takes up a lot of floor space.
Would love to see a version with 10" drivers in the bottom box. 
Cheers.

I like the look......I'm a fan of the round vs sharp style.

Only thing I would change would be the fins on top.
Dont know about you guys but my wife doesnt clean my audio gear....think vacuum and ribbons...
I'm the maid in the music room.
It would be a nightmare to get into those voids to clean.

Yes they do need subs, here are my rounded tops GR servos with my X-Statiks:

Hi, thanks

I am about to assemble the x-statiks like this

Luckily I have an old dual 150W coil 10" VOLT Sub Woofer in the wall
and that will do the job till i get around to Dannys subs.

PDR, That was the first thing I thought of when I saw the ribs. Looks great, not going to be fun to clean... Overall a great look.

I think i might cut out the same (or 5mm smaller) fins out of sound absorbing foam or felt so that they snugly fill the spaces, that would fix the dust problem and help reduce reflections too.
