Thank you for all those nice comments!
I just got home and everything is in the house. It took me 4 trips. I am pretty exhausted.
I think I tackled the finish pretty good. Especially with the color black. I like it shiny!
I don't know if I get both speakers assembled tomorrow but I am very excited to get started. Good night all. I need to get my strength back for tomorrow.

Thanks, it was a lot of work!

The speakers are now mounted on the plinth's, the teardrop is installed and mounted, the tweeters are installed.
I am gonna start cutting the dampening now and punch the seal rings for the woofers. It's coming together nicely. I should have it finished tomorrow and then it's showtime!

Please post a lot of pics and even videos when it's all set up. I'm sure I'm not the only one who's excited to see them in action.

How did you figure out which crossover parts to use? Or did you hire someone to build them for you?

Everything is wired up and the dampening is in place. All I have left to do is to install the woofers and then a little clean up!

Those are the original crossovers from the B&W 800D!
B&W was very kind to let me buy the crossovers and drivers. Otherwise I would have not done that build!

Thanks again B&W. YOU
