A Thanks for the effort!
This is an older thread, I can't believe it though, all of you who have managed to order this cabinet, on this site - Can't do it.
If you have actually ordered this flat-pack and the woofer - can't do once again- you need to give it up, and appreciate the years of work (actually decades) that brought this subwooffer assembly to fruition.
I am not in the middle class, not even able to keep close. I do work very hard for my money and I do very much appreciate the affordable price of the flat-pack * Exodus woofer * and assembly instructions.
Having scarfed up a ''Good Will' woofer that soon gave up it's 250 watt's, leaving me to replace it with a 140 watt hand me down from my 'wife-in-laws' son's 'woofer', it soon became clear–the expediency of profit–will easily overcome the quality of sound–becomes big time!
I had to do something. DTS movie sound tracks were too important.
After it all arrived, it started with two tubes of PL Premium and this thread. Following these instructions and assembly, and my tool-chest serving as sheer weigh for the middle, I realized the sturdiness of 'Baltic Birch" was not to be overcome. After 20hrs, I felt it's strength, knocked a few times, and realized something extraordinary had transpired!
God-bless the audio-files and their pursuit of–not fame and fortune–but some type of an after-life. A type of heaven that says–you deserve more than expediency–more than a catch phrase–much more than a human should deserve, but here you are.
I have survived much–at near 60–this year 2014–I have lived to hear the extremely clear and precise Audiossey tuning of this speaker by my Denon 1610 AVR - giving it up to a used 140 watt sub amp. I heard a very precise assemblage of tones, that was astounding, not muddy, muddled, 'let's fake it crap'.
The first movie was – The guardians of the Galaxy – OMG! It did not hurt, it was not muddy, it was precise and clear.
So thank you, to the creators. For the receivers of this effort, I know it is easy to accept some peoples investment in your life, without understanding, that is common, but give it up to these guys, they deserve it. A big thank you.
