Tips & Tricks:
Watch the cabinet pieces when assembling, they wanted to slide around a bunch. I ended up post sanding the enclosures and they came out fine.

Awesome little speakers. I’m testing them in straight stereo right now and they sound amazing for tiny little bookshelf speakers. I plugged them in in place of my Infinity Beta 20s and they’re competing nicely. A bit less bass but not the Passive Agressive has a really nice sound and tone.

About the Designer:
I didn’t really design these, but I am a design engineer and program manager when I get paid to design and build things. I like to build all sorts of stuff out of wood and metal.
