    Hi folks, I'm systematically plastering these on all the forums I visit simply because I'm so proud of them. So forgive me if this is old news to some of you.

    After months of hardwork and a lot of enjoyment the speakers are nearing completion.

    The design is based around RAAL and Audio Technology drivers. No firm opinions on sound yet as only one loudspeaker is completely finish and things are generally at a very early stage tweaking.

    A partially completed 4 channel amp. Eventually with time there will be 3 of these. Each offers 300w into 8ohm per channel and the idea is to have a channel dedicated to each driver making 10 channels total.

    The amplifier module and power supply are, respectively, the GB300D and GB300S kitsets from Gregball. The amplfier chassis is from a Thai company called ATI research.

    Any question please ask away and thanks for looking.

    I like the time alignment, very good. Beautiful finish on the speakers too.

    Fancy making me some? :D

    Well we may not get on but credit where credit's due - they look utterly superb both in fit and finish.

    I look forward to your listening impressions. Are you going to try an analogue or even passive crossover?

    Fantastic. That speaker looks much better than the Ebens by which it seems to be inspired.

    Thanks fellas. Really appreciate the kudos.

    I always feel awkward giving an opinion on the sound of something I've built but hopefully Pete can find time to come listen to listen these once they're finished. I'm guessing this won't be for a month or two yet but it will be an impartial opinion and its going to be good for me to get feedback on what is and what isn't right with the sound.

    Shin,

    Already expressed my admiration at Greg's forum but gotta say it again, these are absolutely awesome. The dedication you must have put into these is paying great rewards. Hope they sounds as good as they look.

    Cheers

    I think I could probably build them but I know I couldn't get that finish with paint. Very impressive. Did you paint them yourself ?
