I just can't see myself spending $9000 on these speakers. this design is exactly what I'm looking for. has anyone tried to clone this system?

I can't help with the DIY clone version, but, I will suggest you look for a used pair to become available. I waited patiently and purchased my pair of LR5's last month. Rose Walnut, with Boxes, in mint condition. I was able to get mine for $3500 for the pair.

David Lynch Current Equipment: Marantz AV8801, Proceed HPA3, Parasound HCA-1206, Aerial Acoustics LR5's (LCR), Aerial Acoustics LR3's (sides), RBH in-walls (rears), Seaton Submersive, Marantz VP15s1, 106" Carada BW screen, Oppo BDP-103.

I would love to see someone clone a speaker such as the Aerial LR-5. I am not sure if the cabinet has any special tricks like some speakers do, like suppose the midrange and or tweeter could be housed in built in separate compartments.

Unless the mid is a sealed back driver (unlikely), it will have to be in a separate cabinet.

I'd bet the Holtz Mini Statements would give these a hell of a run for their money. If you can DIY the cabinets, I think they can be done for <1k/pr.
