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 http://www.northcreekmusic.com/Bypassing.html
I also replaced the 8" subwoofers with ScanSpeaks:
This past month, I have been re-finishing the frame and front baffle:

Front baffle has been primed and painted with Rustoleum Black Hammered finish:
Sides re-stained with dark walnut:
