Here are the cabinets in sapele pommele veneer and waiting for sanding and a gloss lacquer finish.
They use JBL 2235H woofers, Altec 802-8G driver mounted to Altec 511B horns and the JBL 077 slot tweeters.

When these go back in the living room things will look different, because while they were out we pulled the carpet and put down mahogany floor.

Very nice! Your set-up looks like it would be very relaxing kicking back listening to some great tunes!

Alas the Silver 7t amps aren't even in a system at the moment. I felt so bad with them sitting on a shelf in my audio room. Nice perk with the new house. A dedicated room off the garage that now has my tech bench, parts and all the gear I don't have in systems. So I lent them to a friend in Austin to try with his Klipsch Jubilee's.

Here are the 2 channel system speakers with three coats of lacquer on. They're already looking pretty good, but I'll add a few more coats before buffing them out.

I'm also turning some 3" x 2" billet feet for my speakers.

Are you planning on incorporating spikes?
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

I designed the feet with the option of incorporating some large spikes I have, but don't plan on using any on our new mahogany flooring.

10-4. I take it that you have some sort of room absorption then?
