XL-S build in 2022

Hello, I hope this time is the right topic I started with building XLS. After long discussion with Mr. Danny I've ordered parts. Because of Covid  and problems with delivery I have plenty of time to build speakers. They will look like on 3d graphic.

So, friend made me pages with CNC, so I'm waiting for drivers.

Ok, I'm still in the game. After a while, I've started with surface treatment. First I've put some filler on the MDF.

After a while I've put together crossovers.

In the meantime, when I'm waiting for the boxes to be finished (they will be finished in piano black), I connected the drivers to an old dusty radio in the office. A bitter disappointment at first. I expected from them to be played like Focal Aria or something like that 😀 . There is no bass, the mids and defining treble dominate. But,....BUT, it gives me chills... The separation of channels, the sound image, the sense of what you see in the photo is abnormal - not to say superb. Il I'm talking about the composition you see in the photo.. No funny cables and just wires and music from tuner from FM. In some songs I knew, I heard frequencies and tones that I had never heard anywhere before. At one point, I started panicking to look at the composition to see if I connected something wrong, because one song ended with a very strange saturated sound. Of course, it was the electric guitar sound that ended this song. In the office, I keep turning around for some new unknown sounds coming from different directions, when I later realize that the sounds of instruments are coming from the speakers. An unusual experience. Obviously, the parts in the crossover really do a lot of work.
I can't wait for everything to be assembled and placed in the room. This time I will let them burn in a little.🔥
