X-LS build finally finished
« on: 14 Sep 2020, 02:09 pm »
Hi

Finished my X-LS build this weekend. Thanks to those who contributed to some of my questions on this forum, and to Danny for answering patiently each time. I'm not going to post a long build thread, but suffice to say, that it was a great experience for me and I learnt a helluva lot, especially about woodworking that I haven't really been into before. Below are some images.

That happens to me when the file size is too large. If I open the picture in a photo editor then save a copy as a jpeg at reduced resolution (50%-80% of original) then upload the smaller file it appears right side up in the post.

Your speakers look really sharp.  Nice job on them.  I finished an XL-S Encore build a couple of weeks ago and I am really enjoying listening to them.  The sound keeps getting better and I am really surprised (pleasantly) with the amount of low end these produce.  I did not expect that... I expected the clarity and detailed sound stage.... not so much was I expecting to hear such quality and clarity in the 40-50 hz area.  Amazing!!

MattSelinger, I agree with your sentiment on the clarity and soundstage. I only have about 15 hours on mine so the bass is now coming in.

Naboo, they are looking sharp. Well done.
I have mine in gloss white.

Thank you all and thanks Hobbs for rotating the pics.

Speaker challenged, yours looks awesome too!

Someone asked about the sound - I think I can't improve on Matt Selinger's answer - that is spot on.

I love how you did the front baffle in gloss black, nicely done on that. The contrast with the veneered sides looks really good.
