I'm really downsizing my entire setup, I've already sold my PSA V3611 subs, external amps, Oppo 203 and NIB Denon 4K AVR.
What I have left is three LCR bamboo 1099s and matching bamboo Volt 8s, I had the boxes custom built from a cabinet maker and I did the rest, 16 element XO board for the 1099s, I plan on listing these soon as well. Thanks for your time, look forward to your replies.

Hi Ahblaza! I hope you are doing well!
IIRC Dennis hinted above that buying the components separately might be wiser than buying the BR-1 Full Kit plus the extra stuff you need. Depending on how close to "spec" you want to get with XO components, it might be a crapshoot.
I've already got the tweets on hand, and woofers and XOs pulled... all my necessary XO components on hand based on what I can pull from the original boards of my AAs. I literally just need a free weekend to sit down and do the Soldering!
The Old Dayton Tweet AAs sound Real Nice
, but I am eager to get the Morels installed and use them in a separate Bedroom System rather than my main Rig. (Thanks Dennis!)
Beyond that, I'm toying with rebuilding the cabinets just for the sake of experience! I've got the tools, and a serious itch to try my hand at veneering and finishing my own cabinets!
Anyway, it is a worthwhile pursuit, I think, and wish you the best in your run at it!
Please PM me when you are ready to sell your other speakers. Depending on the timing, I may be interested in checking those out!
Best to you!
