Default Show Us Your Focal Speakers

Hi Ivan:
Can we have a picture "sticky" thread for our Focal speakers?
As soon as I can get caught up from being away for 6-weeks I'll post a couple of pic's.
Thx.

JM Lab Focal Sub Utopia Be - 16" woofer - flat to 20 Hz.

Bought it to go with Micro Utopia Be's but never could get it to integrate properly so I sold it.
