UPDATE: Moved a few things around, tucked the subs into some plant stands, really highlights the benefits tiny subs.  I think I’m settled on their placement, but I wonder if they’re maybe too close to the speakers, any thoughts?

I also added some DIY 10 gauge solid core copper cables, I really underestimated how difficult it would be to work with, it’s a little more workable than a coat hanger.  My initial impression was that the highs were a slightly diminished compared to 12 gauge stranded copper speaker wire, but it’s probably all in my head.


This is the system I’ve built over the years.  I wanted a little more bass out the B&Ws, and rather than upgrade to larger speakers I opted for subwoofers to achieve better bass through multiple sources.  I’m still experimenting with sub placement, wife absolutely hates the placement shown in the photo but how could I resist the granite, although the room is on a slab foundation so that’s not critical.

Next upgrades will be a rack, speaker cables, and maybe some spikes for the speakers.

Thanks for looking.
