Looking great. Just a medium oak would look nice. Interested in hearing how they sound.

I agree - go for medium oak, dark oak, or walnut. NOT black!

Anything but black. Manufacturers have one "safety zone exit" with speaker finishes: if it turns out gaudy for whatever reason - they can always sell it as BLACK !

I would say that some of the color choice would be dependent on the acoutriments of the room. The red oak of #1 looks good to me.

It also has to be taken in account whatever finish chosen will turn out a bit darker if there will be clear protective coat over it. Depending on your room colours, I would go with something usually not available commercially - and finish it off to perfection every one  would notice to be over the usual level in 

speaker cabinets.

 

Then again, piano lack, polished to perfection, most commonly unfortunately BLACK, is difficult to improve upon...

I like the darkest color you have.  Did you design these yourself - if so what type of crossover are you using?

post #1120 of 1262

Gotta say this about about the Kef 104 those speakers and the sx750 never cease to amaze me especially wih SURVIVAL FROM MUSE ,BOZ SCAGGS, RUNNIN BLUE bass on these speakers is WOW so nice just had to say it again.

The B139 woofer can really move some air!

post #1122 of 1262

A friend found these at a garage sale for me for $20.................Cerwin Vega DX-3's with the 10" woofer.  
 

Foam is in great shape and they sound like they should - highly efficient thumpers.
