I can't give you any info on those particular models but the wave design is incredible. I have a brother in law that has an early version and the sound was really something for the size. Also I have had a Bose stereo in my family room since the late 80's and haven't had any problems with it.
wtnhighlander, I have some substantial background in drawing and painting and my father is an architect.
The spikes were INTENDED to provide support for the legs and prevent them from breaking during the drying process. I installed these prior to posting here and prior to learning that it probably was not helpful and might be harmful. .. Actually everything I have done so far on this project happened prior to posting here and all I have done since is pause and consider the various pieces of information I am being given.
Here's the easiest way that I've found to clamp a miter joint:
Use a large drop of medium CA to glue triangular blocks near the corner of your miter.
Apply glue liberally to the joint
Clamp the ever lovin' crap out of it.
After the glue dries, saw the blocks off, then plane flush.
Don't be tempted to knock the blocks off with a hammer or a chisel. You will most likely tear out some wood.

Theres a lot of Folk art and craftman woodworking.
My favorite is the shovel maker.
A complete 180 from fine wood working but interesting stuff.
