    P.S What does "linled" mean?
    It means you are a pedantic ****

    LOL! Trust me, I wasn't being pedantic. I thought it was some fancy computer term I hadn't heard of! For me, this is not unusual

    Those speakers are nothing short of astonishing! How long did the design and build take Steve?

    Well the credit for the design goes to Scottmoose over on Diyaudio. They are a design called Sachiko from the "Spawn of Frugal Horn" range. The plans are free to download form the site. The drivers are Fostex FE206's modified by Dave at Planet10. The build itself took me a while as I did not have a table saw so had to use a jigsaw / handsaw! but it was definitly worth it, I am very pleased with the results.

    Heres pics of my ultilitarian power amp thats used for testing and general listening in the spare room where I do my DIY stuff.
    The amp was cracked open as I was re adjusting the bias. Not pretty but works very well.

    There's a good five minutes 'spot the difference' there, Mike What's the prize

    Have you got a stepped volumes control at the front as well? Tell us something about the mods you've done!
