wow the white actually looks amazing

Could you describe the painting process? What do you use on the seams? What kind of primer/ paint / spraygun?

The high gloss ones we didn´t paint my friends neighbour did that. All the other ones my friend painted at his work with a spraygun, nothing out of the ordinary. I don´t know which labels he used.

Are those speakers the 95 Series from XTZ?

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite

Thought so. I'm listening to those exact speakers as I type this. A full XTZ system will be my next review.

Nice! please let me know were you post it I have owned almost every XTZ model except the 95 series and divine.
Moved on to M&K at that time... but the M&K will leave soon to since I´m building the CSS Criton2 kit and hope they will sound above my exceptions, chosen drivers and crossover parts looks very good.
We are also sketching a complete monitor with floorstand for my workshop friends setup and the design seems to be something very different and edgy when we have the time to start building it I can share a new build thread.

Regards
Mattias & Albin

Your builds are ridiculously good. Where in Sweden do you live?? I work for a company called Tetra Pak, Head office in Lund. On occasion I come up to Malmö on business.

Thanks! I live between Gothenburg and Borås but my friend with this setup we built for him lives 150km north from me. I know Tetra pack I was born down there in south of Sweden but not as far down as Malmö, my father lives in Helsingborg.

Had some spare parts from my sonosub build (got to keep one driver when it was delivered with bad gluing of the spider and got a new one.) so this will be a stand in sub now when I have sold my SDX12 subs for future builds.
150liters tuned to 20Hz with Dayton DVC385-88 15" in a 400mm cylinder.

The speakers and subwoofers are gorgeous, but that carpet has to go...

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite

That white looks like lacquer. Damned gorgeous.
Reminds me of a guy from a few years back that used to build speakers with amazing finishes.
I can't remember his name though.

Did you and your friends ever seriously consider going into business? I know you mentioned it might be a possibility at one point. Even if you guys built subs as a side job I think you might end up with an awful lot of customers. That is some brilliant work you do.

Remember our names and the future will tell but I can say nothing right now.
We have a lot of ambition and design ideas but with full time employment, wives and young children free time varies a lot. Right now my friend does a lot of extra time to make up for production time lost when they installed the new Homag 5 axis CNC but later this autumn/winter I hope there will be more time.
