I’ve done it all in my room, legs has been made in stairs middle-platform.

This is how I’ve  done it. I’ve changed everything apart from crossover and HF panel. True legendary sound indeed!

This is my system in June 2010 and how it started. My system is of course totally different now.

I was quite happy with the result in the end. It take me one month to refurb speakers and another one to do legs. All done by hand, no electricity used. Never ever, ever again!!!

  1. Dear sir,

    What a wonderfull job, what a courage and effort you put into these ladies. Woulld love to have the possibilities to make teh same mods… espexially the siderails. Is there any chance to post me the ‘blueprint’?

    Hope to see your positive reply.

    Karl

  2. Good Job and the profile of the legs will be immortalized in spray paint on that brick wall – elegant – i will seriously look at your side rail drawings as a basis for a stacked esl57 project.
