After pricing the components individually, I decided to order two kits from speakerhardware.com. The cost was about the same or less, and it saved me the trouble of ordering from multiple sites. They even caught a mistake I made (I ordered extra parts not realizing they came included with the kit,) and contacted me to double check. Saved me some dough, for which I'm grateful. Game of Thrones was not included, but I figured everyone likes a size reference, no?
Marking the holes
Gluing up some melded tweeter arrays. The jig really did make it fairly easy.
Tryin' it on for size. Tip-Read the plans. Thoroughly. Then read them again. I definitely could've saved myself some trouble had I been more careful reading the plans. I had to take a chisel to remove some wood so the array would fit. My fault
Not too complex as far as these things go.
I ended up buying ten feet of 4" pipe because the pre-cut pieces at HD were $11 for two feet. I payed $20 for 10'. Cut them in sections, then cut them lengthwise, then stuck em on there.
It's got wings! No, I'm just making the butt cheeks
Side braces installed and vents cut.
Sides are on. Starting to feel like I'm getting close!
Nice Butt, eh?
Told you you'd get a chance to see it.
First coat of Rustolium truck bed liner. Hint- Never use this stuff. The smell was so strong, I was getting a little sick from the fumes. And this is outdoors, in my driveway. Then I put it in the garage and went to work. I got home and the whole house smells of the crap. Strongly. Looks like my new baby is going to be spending the night out in the kids' playhouse to air out some....
On the plus side, the finish looks nice
I'll snap a pic of it after the fumes die down a bit.
