Apogee MiniGrand Nudies

After spending this Spring rebuilding two pair of The "New" Advent speakers, I got the bug to work on my Apogee Mini Grands.

When I first purchased these about 7 years ago, the frame was slightly roughed-up. I initially be-built the crossovers, using Alpha-core inductors, Bybee Slipstreems, Axon caps, and Holand Bypass caps

I also replaced the 10" subwoofers with ScanSpeaks:

This past month, I have been re-finishing the frame and front baffle:

gettin the glue off the back

Front baffle has been primed and painted with Rustoleum Black Hammered finish:

Sides re-stained with dark walnut:

Inside look at the large ribbon:

The mid-tweeter ribbons prior to the upgrade with Graz's 26-6 XLM2's Check out his website!

The ribbons are not copper...just the laws of optics playing games:

More to follow!

Music, when combined with a pleasurable idea, is poetry.
Music, without the idea, is simply music.
Without music, or an intriguing idea, color becomes pallor, man becomes carcass, home becomes catacomb.
