Damn I am impressed and inspired to start work on my own in-wall project that I am dreaming of and researching still. It has different parameters but that build looks like it was hella fun!!!

There is a build that I've been thinking for many years but it has always been others in between. 


I'm incredibly glad I finally implementing the project.

Looking great Roger! I like the way you used splines to join the sides to the top/bottom and front! Very ingenious.

I have a couple of design questions/observations...I have built something similar a long time ago, and when I did it, I built it so the top and bottom were decorative caps...there was actually a hidden (functional) top/bottom which the decorative caps were screwed to from the inside. This made it much easier when it came time to finish the different parts.
Why did you put the speaker terminal cups so far apart as opposed to putting them right next to each other near the bottom?
Any reason you did not recess the drivers more (another baffle would have been needed)? I assume you want the drivers exposed? I know I recessed mine 1" deep just so I had a smooth front for a grille without the drivers hitting the grille.
How deep are the dados that you are using? Looks like about 0.125" although I could be waaaaayyyyyy wrong?

Again, I am not trying to nitpick. but the work looks great! I am guessing about 250-300 pounds each empty when they are done.

so nice, I love seeing diy tower builds. How are you finishing them, veneered sides and black painted front? How are you sealing the MDF seams?

I've had this idea a long time to build the tower and you know that is not really how 
something looks like the bow to get it together. 
But I'm really happy how the proportions were we are very sensitive to it.

The base change and I did so that it was possible to screw over before it became so heavy 
and difficult to assemble. 
The cover has a lot of beveled edges and you can not screw it inside from the 
it is bracing and insulation that is in the way.

 
Each box has its own box and I do not pull the cable existence inbetween for that then I have to make sure it is tight at each connection. 
I think having the elements visible because I have two Siberian cats who are interested in the front fabric. 
Then it will be a stylish connection rear of the speaker as I have never seen before.

 

 

 

The weight goes blank about 260 pounds but with the elements, it becomes a total of 400 pounds. 
It's just nice to have different solutions to their problems that's out there to learn.

 

Thanks

They're going to look like Revel Salon 2 

 

 

It gets to glue and use 4mm plywood strips that I put into the track that is 
the milled.
