Could help but be reminded of My Shahinian Obelisks, although the top section is not sloped backwards. Looking very good Steve.

I don't think these have a front which slopes backwards, just the sides sloping in. I could be wrong (would not be the first time)

I think a nice 60's retro colour scheme would look fantastic. Loving following these speakers as they develop. Doing a grand job Steve.
