    Not sure if this was an upgrade or not. I really liked my Emotiva Airmotiv 5 powered monitors but they sound quite different from how these are. None of the air and strong imaging that I was expecting based on those and the Stealth 8's I'd heard before. I'm thinking I should have just upgraded the crossovers in the 11TL's instead.

    Before:

    Wow that is one big center channel. Very nice set up, give your ears time to get used to the new sound! And put the grills on, it will look much nicer, and take another pic with them on.

    Beautiful cabinet @joecoulson love the color too! I assume it is custom built?

    And the top is removable? Clever. How does it stay attached?

    Great job! :smile:

    Yeah I made it some time ago. Thank You Dave.

    The top has a fan built in (under TT) to cool the AVR. The top just stays in place with weight.
    It’s built like a tank.

    Thank you, I have mine organized by the top rack is all of my Marvel & DC films in alphabetical order, then all other movies in alphabetical order. From the fouth rack on down are the TV series I have purchased.

    My back and legs are killing me today, but it was worth it. I discovered that I had already bought the Sound Of Music previously and forgot until I pulled it out of the container it was in that was under the bed, so now I have two copies of it.
