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.

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.
