    Woo!

    So here's a pic I got from Dave for one of my custom Sierra-1 bookshelf speakers! This uses the RAAL 70-20XR tweeter AND the Sierra Tower midrange driver! I will be using this pair as my Front Wide speakers to give me a perfect midrange and treble match to my Front 3 speakers! But I'll be darned if they don't look so darn sexy, now I'm thinking how much I'd like to use them as main speakers - haha. And am I crazy, or do those Sierra-1 cabinets look awesome in the custom matte black finish.

    I'm excited

    Wow, very impressive. You, sir, need to host a block party once your pallet 'o speakers arrives. I'll bring beer, ribs, pheasant, veal, whatever you want....just please let me bask in the magnificence of these wonderful custom speakers.

    Can someone pass me a napkin, please? I'm drooling again.

    I know, right?

    I really, really need my house to be move-in ready, like, NOW! haha. This little apartment is NOT going to cut it

    Actually, I kind of can't wait to cram all 11 speakers, my 2 PC13-Ultra subs and my Onkyo TX-NR5010 + ATI AT1805 amp into my tiny apartment theatre. It's going to look hilarious!

    I've definitely jumped the gun a bit with this speaker purchase But I'm still glad I did it. These are going to last me a long, long time. And once I move into my house, I'm sure other things will take priority, and I might not have gotten around to putting together my dream speaker system for a while! But this way, I'm all set

    Are those still bamboo cabinets or MDF?

    Yup, still bamboo. I just went for the matte black finish

    I do believe some of the internal bracing is MDF, though.

    I thought my room was kind of cramped with all the electronics and speakers in here, but you've got me beat. Can't wait to see it all set up in your apartment!

    You answered my unasked question, too. I was wondering what you were going to drive the Ascends with. I was also going to ask what surrounds you picked out, but I found the answer on page 1. You're gonna have one outstandingly fantastical system. Heh, I'm bouncing out of my chair with excitement and these aren't even for me!
