I built these a year ago. I recently ran across the pics for these, as well as my 1099's and realized I hadn't posted build threads yet! Unfortunately, I'm missing some pics. Hopefully I will find them, but for now these are the shots I got. Please forgive the crappy cel phone quality pics!
My room is an open concept. It has 12ft ceilings. I can really only do a 5.X setup since I have no side walls for surrounds. I can only do rear surrounds, and they have to be on ceiling
Here is a pic of where I will put them. I planned to put them in each corner on the ceiling. I have to consider WAF, so I will paint them the same color as the trim.
The Volts are super easy to assemble. The CNC is so clean, the enclosure can be dry fitted without using tape, etc to keep the pieces from falling.
I just used glue and clamps. No need for nail gun.
Glue dry, clamps removed, here's what it looks like before prep and paint:
The crossover is really simple and easy to assemble.
I used these connectors to connect the crossovers to the speaker leads. I just cut off the blue cover and soldered them to the wire. No lazy crimping here!
I painted them with Kiltz PRO X. I had Lowes (or HomeDepot, i forget which!) make it the same color as my trim. I painted 4 coats and it turned out nice! I was going to try Duratex in the same color as trim, but I didn't want to wait!
I mounted them using the white version of the PanaVise 110120W Speaker Mount.
They sound really clear. It's hilarious when we order Pizza, because you can see one of the Volt 10's from the front door view. The Pizza delivery guys and gals all comment on them.
