Thanks for kind words.
Not like I use to be able to do and working with limited tools and time it all works out.

Re: My HUGE center channel under construction from RAW Acoustics ~50" wide, 3-way, ribbon tweeter

Brought the Apex C II home today, wow it is bigger, heavier and more awesome than I could have ever imagined. We watched The Lego Movie on it after some quick settings changes and wow it sounds good. This thing could be its own subwoofer for lower level listening! Aimed up it throws a huge image across the screen and fits very well with the towers. I could not be happier with how it turned out and I look forward to having it for years and years to come; this is one of those high end pieces that is passed down from generation to generation like a McInosh amp or nice watch. Currently biamping it with two bridged channels from a Rotel RB-976 so 150x2/300w RMS total. Now for pics!

With super light MDF magnet grill:

As you can see, it is WAY too big for the Lovan stand, whoops! Back to the drawing board on that one...

What's the final weight? Looks like a two man job just to be safe, I'm sure you don't want any scratches.

Yep, definitely a two man job. It took both Al and myself to load it into my truck, then I used a hand truck to move it into my living room. I am guessing it is over 100lbs., I plan to weigh it today for fun

For pricing I recommend contacting Al (RAW) if you are interested in one since these are so customized (drivers, ribbons, crossover components, terminals, biamp, baffle curve, grill, port design, veneer, etc).

Re: My HUGE center channel under construction from RAW Acoustics ~50" wide, 3-way, ribbon tweeter

MY guess is close to 100lbs yes.Double thick front baffle for 1.5" thick. Dual slot port tuned just at 30hz.

Final cost for these is around $2000.00 with some of the upgrades I did for this speaker.
I personally like the Apex series and would love to do one of the Apex III with the new Wavecore woofers and mids like I used in this Apex C.

Enjoy and happy listening.Good to hear you had no issues getting back across the boarder..

Thanks Al! The border agent was pretty impressed at the size of it haha. Can't wait to fire it up again today, we are still amazed at how big the image is with this thing. It feels like one big wall of sound across the entire front of the room now, no gaps when action moves across the screen. Amazing!
