If you've made it this far, you must atleast be partially curious as to how the speakers look.  This is a compilation of all of the photos, construction details, and graphs I have relating to this system.  Click on the images to enlarge.

Vifa D27SG-05 1" Tweeter
(Actually, this is the D27TG-35, but it's pretty close)

(275-070) Dayton Loudspeaker 1-1/8" Tweeter

An enclosure for the front/surround speakers before assembly.  Note the slight angle of the front baffle.

Front shot showing the drivers installed

This shows the internal bracing for the center channel.

Just before initial assembly of the center speaker.  That's Gorilla Glue (polyurethane). 

Initially only the sides and top and bottom were glued to allow the front and back to be removed for routing and easier access to the crossover.

Can you can guess what this is?

Here's a shot of the inside with the crossover installed, before the internal braces and padding are installed.

Here's a rear view of the front baffle. 

Here's the semi-assembled center channel (lower) and the old center channel that the tweeter was robbed from.

Here's a view from the top of the center channel.

Parts for the center channel

Again showing the bracing, padding and terminal cutout

Another front fiew.  Note that the tweeter is slightly offset from the woofers.
