That was my initial thought. I reviewed/tested all 3 crossovers with no issue. It could be from multiple mic placements or the aggressive toe-in,
I will say they sound very clear with and without audyssey. HT improves with audyssey full range, but with music, I prefer them with no adjustments. That room is 16x19 but is open in the back (south) to a 20x16 kitchen and open to the right (east) to a very large dining room. The room also has cathedral ceiling about 16' high.
So far, I'm impressed and once I figure out that dip, play more with toe in and get those subs balanced, I'll happily provide a review.
As far as veneer, I just used the walnut band-it rolls from parts express and stained them with "gunstock". Applied them using dap contact cement. Basically poisoned myself with that stuff, felt sick for a day or so
. Cut the pieces with a utility knife and finished them with a flush router bit on the sides of the box. I used the utility knife for around the speaker openings. Sorry, no build thread. my interaction was part time supervision, gluing and routering. Oh, but I was the one that completely botched the finish on the birch sub boxes. It's comical its so bad. I had laid down large plastic sheeting in my dining room to stain all the speakers. My daughter was gone and I was anxious to get the room cleaned (WAF) and play with the new toys. I forgot to sand the baffles AND I used the wrong stain. So those are getting painted this summer, lol. I didn't even do the backs.
