No, they are in storage for now until the center is completed. Then I will set it up in the living room. They all will have a 6 1/2" uni-Q driver for mids and highs.

Enjoy the following shots. I hope you guys like it. Now i have a unique set of B&W 800D





























I am quoting your post b/c those pics deserve to be on another page.

Wow Ref! Your skills are amazing. Got to tell you, I had high expectations after the first build, but you have surpassed them. Not an exaggeration. Wow, great job.

From the little experience I've had with 800D I don't think I've seen a finish so exquisite on them. They are stunners and yoy first impression is very positive, wwhich is way cool, Enjoy of your favorites again.

Really well done. Yes having the right tools helps but the knowledge and patience to apply them is not common.

I hope you send pics to B&W im sure they would get a kick out of your project and be fully impressed.

I thank you all for those nice comments. I could not be more happier. The outcome, visually and performance wise make me very proud. It was a long, hard road with a lot of challenges, but I was able to tackle them without major problems. Thanks again.

Thanks,
I am pretty much done with tower speakers. I build 2 pairs and both of them are unique and perform super awesome for what they are. The B&W's beat my KEF Reference by a mile. Don't get me wrong, the KEF Ref are super performers but the B&W's just have the edge.
I am my own competition but it would be interesting what I could achieve if I would take part in a contest like this.
I am very lucky with what I have and would have never dreamed of having set up's like the ones I currently own.

Thanks, I am using KnuKonceptz Karma SS 8 gauge speaker wire and emotiva RCA interconnects. Once I upgrade the pre-amp, I will use balanced interconnects from emotiva.

You should get work at B&W.
You really deserve all the praise possible. I've never seen any DIY more beautiful than this.
