Darren,

Nice choice for the finish. 1) Will you have grills? Or 2) Keep it simple, and have the baffle & drivers exposed with the same finish as the cabinet. (FWIW I like #2 )

The drivers will be exposed. I have a pet-free and child-free home so I don't need to protect the drivers from anything. My young nieces and nephew have been taught that if they touch anything in the room besides the floor and chairs that Frozen (or whatever movie they choose) is turned off so quickly the projector is cooling down before they can even think about fake crying to get their movie back on the big screen. So I have no worries about exposing the drivers without a grill.

I haven't been a big fan of grills since I started building speakers. These drivers look so nice it would be a shame to hide them behind a grill.

Sounds like the youthful ones have been very well trained

Two of my favorite things, HT room design and speaker design, and both in one thread!

Everything looks excellent deewan! I'll admit I was skeptical about the faux-rock wall, but it looks like it was a spot-on choice with everything in your room.

Those speakers, I take it you've designed them yourself, care to share any details on design procedures/crossover information? They're looking great so far!

Once the build is complete and I have proof of concept, I'll be happy to share the details of the build.

Here are the new bases. May not seem like a big change, but I like these A LOT more than my first version. I'll be sanding and shaping them tonight and getting them ready for paint as well. Temps are rising around Iowa so I might be able to prime the cabinets in the next week or before it gets humid and before my travel for work ramps up again.
