new set of Apollo11 in Baked Maple

Building a new set of APollo11 for a customer who has had a set of Ulysses for a long time! He wanted to see the process so here we go.

Here are some of the panels being glued up. Pretty nice wood I'd say :thumb:

Two months ago I was whale watching in the San Juan Islands and the next day meeting up with Lou.

It was wonderful to get together, share our strong passion for music and...

have Lou design the ideal speaker to grace my home.



I was very taken by the  Apollo 11s when I heard them at Lou's shop

Owning the Ulysses V2  - I have always enjoyed their engaging sound.

I am so excited to hear how much further the Apollo 11s will take things in my system.

This wood grain on these speakers is wonderful!
Thank you Lou!

It is such a tough decision regarding finishes and Lou walked me through a number of options.


The cabinetry I decided on is based a lot on his demo pair on the website.
Which I was able to see and hear - up close and personnel

The baked maple is a fabulous wood.
These are going to look spectacular.

Such an heirloom.

Stunning Lou
Thank you!


I promise to be very patient as the speakers come together.
