A couple more, showing the CC and stand a little closer, and a head-on shot in a final config.
These guys are sounding really, really, good, but after 5 years of dragging this project out, I'm really, really, glad to be done.
The sides are all pre-veneered Cherry ply, the end caps are solid Cherry, and the fascia are all hard white Maple, which was really tough to rout the 1" radiii on without tearing out big chunks. They came out pretty nice with a few minor blems.
But like I said, they sound great, so who cares?
Moonhawk, congratulations, they look great and I'm sure they sound great too.
Other than the sub, my Northcreek 5.1 system was built in the reverse order. My Vision Signature mains are noted on the first page of this thread back in 2002. I then built the center and finally finished the rears in March 2009. Since then I've built a 2nd Sub so I have the 18 Leviathan for the LFE and a 12 2 cubic foot sealed Aurasound NS12-7094-4A handling under 80 hz for the mains.
Seems like a decent site with some interesting plans. They don't have much selection though but I think the small speaker plans are actually free. Probably only good for a HTiB replacement or computer speakers though.
mikal and Doug,
You guys may not have noticed this thread is 8 yrs old. This thread also started before there was a diy speaker forum. I am pretty sure that Ted designed and build line arrays for his LCR speakers years ago. The thread eventually turned into an Audax HT build thread. I built a set still enjoy mine to this day. The only problem is Audax basically quit selling those drivers to the diy market.
I started on a set of Dayton RS TMWW towers three years ago. I built the cabinets and then burned out on speaker building before I built the crossovers. All the drivers are still in there boxes. I suppose I need to finish them.

Nice Build! I seem to recall that the Neos cost in around $500 a pop. That is not bad considering the performance they bring. I wonder if Jon will ever get around to updating these with new tweeters.
