There is a thread on the PE forum, http://techtalk.parts-express.com/fo...ns-apollo-ares

I have been interested in people's experiencies building and listening to this design, as well.

Thanks! I already had done a search and read the posts on the parts express forum plus diysg reviews. I think the lower sensitivity may be the reason more haven't been built. I've heard Dennis Murphy's BMR's which are 84 db efficient and they cranked in a large room without maxing out the volume.

I built a trio of them recently. In summary, they're great.

I'm only driving them with my Denon X4200W, but they get plenty loud enough for movies, albeit not quite as loud as my Heresy/Academy setup. That said, my old Klipsch standbys were harsh at those high volumes anyway.

Wow. Those look great! I am about to Veneer some Cobalts and your tips will come in handy. Question for you. Do you ever worry about the radiant heat from the fire place and your TV?

Thanks. I've been in my house for about 8 years and for the first 6 years I used the fireplace twice before putting the TV up. It just wasn't worth the hassle to build fires and deal with the house smelling like a campsite for the next 2 weeks, so I don't use it anymore.

I've never veneered anything unless you count the edge banding. It always seemed to be very expensive. Looking forward to seeing your Cobalts!
