I built this Audax 3-way center channel a while ago. Best center channel I've ever heard, and it only cost me about $200 to build. The finish is PPG black automotive paint with a lot of gold pearl in the clear coat. You can only see the gold if you catch it in the light just right. I was thinking about building some Adire Audio kit 281 speakers for the L/R. Anybody have any experience with those?
