Thanks Danny. Really glad they  are  safe and sound, we felt they  were pretty secure.  Custom box/packing adds up but it's worth it.
Can't wait to see  a couple pics  once  you  assemble them and the rest of the setup   !!

Jay,

Did you take any pics of the packing process?

No,   probably should have though.   I modeled everything up then   we had  custom  #2styrofoam  cnc cut.
Did it in such a way that after wrapping  each cabinet, we could  basically  encapsulate   both speakers in  foram around a core, then wrap  them all up  with  cling to keep it all     bound together  before finally  slipping   the entire   thing into a  custom made  , super heavy duty box.
We did very similar  for the  S7 center, the  dual h-frame, and the  Line Force/Super LS  bases.

Eagerly waiting for the fully assembled pics.  What kind of parts will be used for the XOs?
Information on the performance, sound etc

Oh My! Those will be spectacular!

Where can one go to Demo these?  :green:

I would be certain these could be among the very best speakers ever made.

After about an hour of listening to the original model the designer of the drivers said that my system was the best sounding system that he has heard in 30 years of audio.  :green:

Looking forward to comments on differences (if any, and if so, how much) between the original Aluminum frames and these Composites. I hope they are fairly minor or even imperceptible.

There will be no  resonance issues with these.  A fully open cabinet like these won't be loaded much, if any at all. There is no outer wing to create anything. 
We went  with a  composite that is  slightly denser than  MDF, roughly .8 gr/cc.  Main issues were  strength as  there is not  a  lot  of material  left  between drivers  after machining.
This stuff  is so dimensionsally stable and nice to machine. On top of that,  once it's  glued up, it's really one solid piece, the joint becomes part of the material itself.
We also put  a lot of emphasis on attention to detail so nothing looks overlooked or  unfinished. Every exposed edge, even  on the bases   has been finished with a tight, 3.175mm  radius. All driver cutouts have a large radius on the  rear side along with a very  tight bevel around the front side so after mounting drivers it will be ever so slightly  apparent.
We've  consulted with Danny throughout this design process, I'm confident these will be easily measure  up  :)

Make the feet/base lower if possible, cradle it to the floor like pardigm or some of the many others that are low and wide.

You want the LS to be up where it is and  actually, they are not the  tall but are    wider than you may think from  the pictures
