This is as close as I could get the CAD file to match a photo.

This is the first piece into final assembly. The second one should be together tomorrow. I just need to complete the grills for the bass cabinets and they will be completed too.

Here's the 1st start up of the mains. The bass cabinets are only lacking the threaded inserts for driver mounting and the grills...

That is a very nice set of speakers, how much power is needed to drive them?

The mains are super efficient. We're currently using Single-ended Triode amps with 300B tubes to drive the mains. That's a whopping 8 watt output. But consider that these could play continuous program at 94db using about .015625W and you get the idea.

The Woofers will run on separate amps and they will have a few  hundred watts each, playing below 100Hz.

So our 1st customer system has been delivered and set up.

A little video shot in low light with the other two involved in the development a building of the speakers, and the customer.

We're working on finding a spot in the High End Show in Newport Beach this spring. Also the customer for this first set wants to back production for us as well.

So I'm busy working on a more down market design that could be built at a reasonable price point for a wider target market.

In this picture you're looking at seven figures worth of audio gear, in a room designed by the audio consultant for the Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, along with ~25,000 vinyl records (about 1/4 of the owner's collection).

Congradulations! and best of luck in your future endeavors. That is a beautiful set of speakers. My stereo system consists of a Sansui 5000, Akai X360D, and a dual 1019 turntable that I bought while living in Japan. It was a good system back then, and I still use it today. It is nothing compared to what is in that room, but I do have an appreciation (and a little envy) for it.
