Here are some pictures of my soon to be new speakers. Hoping to have them completed by end of March, if all goes well
Nice, i hope they sound as good as they look, do you want them to shake the place.

Thank you for all kind words
All photos are taken as I go along - and will update next weekend to (hopefully) show progress.
And will write a full review as soon as they are up and running and have had time to break in
With double ScanSpeak drivers, they should deliver enough bottom end for both me and most of the neighbours >)

The oak fronts against the white of the cabinet. Not sure I like the oak...
Latest update photos
Spray painting cabinets
Front of cabinet finished - sides still to do
Lovely work, big fan of Troels designs! I would love to have an ounce of the speaker design and manufacture that he has!
Was there any particular reason you chose that design over his others? I would find it difficult to choose!
Sony DVP-S9000ES | DIY SET / Eagle SA100 | DIY Speakers / Eclipse TD-508 / Keesonic Kolt
Chose the design based on speaker size and the fact that I wanted something with a bit of low end punch
One cabinet done - fronts now black
One done - one to go. It sounds very good even without any time to break in - and it is partnered with one of the Eekels Minis (see separate showcase for these)
Fantastic job im waiting for troels to do a 2 way design using accuton drivers to have a go myself!
HiFi. Arcam cd92,a85,p85 bi-amping Ma rx6, kimber silver streak & 8tc cables and r/a mains.
A/V. panasonic plasma, sony av amp. mordaunt short premier, rel q150 sub.
I recommend his designs - they sound wonderful to my ears.
I am already looking at TJL 2W with ribbon tweeter as my next project
