    Made for the wifey after she listened to my MK 1's . I'll make a thread for these as soon as they are painted.
    Specs:
    320h x 220d x 95w
    Rear ported and tuned for a lil less bass than the originals. Ports are 3D printed and use Foam plugs for tuning.
    Made from 6 and 12mm plex with internal bracing.
    Fronts are dummy baffles and use magnet to secure in place.
    Swann B3N drivers are used for their versatility and availability.
    No X overs needed for these but you can go with the Zaph mod.

    Designed as near field monitor and need to be pointed to get the sweet spot.

    Always the easiest part .... The start :)

    The next is a bit of simple router and profile work Double layer tops and backs 12mm front baffle 6mm front dummy baffle 6mm internal brace.

    Test fit the driver and add the magnets to the front dummy panels

    Then it's into the print room to make some ports.

    I went with these and resized to suit https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3671571

    Man, I love everything you do but I can never come and look at your stuff without getting insanely jealous of your totally slick workspace. :)

    Really nice final result mate, smooth as. I bet they sound the bizniz too.
    Pro hifi manufacturers would be jealous of the finish you got on those. :thumbup:
    The driver flange covers are fucking seamless, or just about. Top work.
    I'll forgive you for cheating with the foam-plug tuning, instead of just messing with the port parameters... :p
