    Just wanted to post a pic as I know this is the first 5.1 system using the Criterion,Diluceo and the new Diluceo center from GR.
    Cabinets are now gone to the new home and as soon as I get pics of them fully assembled i will post them as well.

    Yes a lot of ribbon for sure, as well the stands were shot with no plates but the center as I had them all wrapped up by the time I shot these.
    Enjoy.

    So are these a pretty awsome sounding speaker? I may be interested in upgrading my front stage with these.

    The Diluceo design just a very high end design and vocals are very dynamic and detailed to say the least.

    Allan,

    Those cabinets are super. Lee Valley is just down the road from me. I get in there about once a month. Next trip and I will pick up that very same stain.

    What is your method of construction? Are the cabinets MDF with veneer? What veneer?

    Thanks,

    Dan Miller

    Fronts are 1.25" MDF all other material is 1" MDF with braces out of .75" MDF.

    Veneer is Cherry as well.
    So Cherry veneer and Cherry Gel Stain as well.

    Ya LEE Valley is a costly store.
    I can not walk out with out it costing me $150.00[​IMG]

    Al,

    Can you point me in the general direction of some web sights that show the construction of a few cabinets? Not so much the math but the method.

    I have stumbled into a few of these sights but I imagine there are more. My guess is that you more experienced guys know just where to go. I would like to see some good detailed pictures of cabinet construction.

    Thanks,

    Dan Miller

    Dan,

    See Patrick Sun's DIY section:

    http://www.io.com/~patman/

    He has probably the most well documented site I've ever come across.

    This is unbelievable !!!!!

    Earlier this evening, I started another thread addressed to Dan Wesnor. I told him I would contact Dan Richie. The next thread down was started by Dan Magnin. Now along comes a guy named Dan Hine to post a reply to one of my questions in this thread.

    It's time for me to turn in for the night.

    Thanks guys,

    Dan Miller

    Patrick,

    I took Dan Hine's advice and visited your sight. Nice photo documentation of the speaker cabinet building process.

    Now I will take Dan Wesnor's advice and call up Dan Richie about 16 ohm drivers.

    Regards,

    Dan Miller

    I heartily admit that my way isn't for most people. The typical construction has the backside all sealed up (not removable) which looks better from all angles/sides, the bracing is less, and the crossover is installed via the largest hole for the drivers through the front baffle.

    When my dad visits, he always asks me why my speakers weigh so much... if he only knew...
