first off, glad to see the forum back online. I've been wanting to show off my newest project. I was looking for a belle as my center channel between the khorns but couldn't find one for sale anywhere nearby. So I decided to build one. It was a fun project and challenging at times. here are a few pics. I was unable to find a k500 horn to use with the k55v so I ended up building it as well. it turned out really nice and sounds awesome. My dad already ordered two more for his 2ch set up... belle2.JPG

Will I find La Scala, or better, to displace my La Scala fronts, before I displace my kg1, kg2 & kg3 with Heresy or better?

Very nice. Maybe build a couple more for your sides and move the Forte II's to the rear? I think you would be pleased with the result.

How did you get the dimensions for the build? Do you have a Belle box to go off of?
