      I will try to make the crossover design available as soon as I can get the file off my old computer. I am proud of the design which took a bit of trial and error on this one, but well worth it.

    Nice looking speakers & room! Love the Allen & Heath console. I used to have a GL3 back in the 90’s for FOH. Solid, good sounding consoles – never an issue, unless you count the freak generator power surge that took out the power supply.

    These are Gorgeous, and I think you just saved my…ears at the very least. I am using these as inspiration for my own monitor build on DIYAUDIO, and have used your picture of these as a reference. I do hope you do not mind. But they are spot on, and I am enamored! thank You.
    If you would like to see the thread on DIY Audio, it is listed under Multi Way and look for “Togril”
