Locked and loaded. Almost. I am pulling the RE's out tonight to reseal around the baffle, re wire to make them capable of using both sets of binding posts so I can adjust series/parallel and mono/stereo configurations outside the box without having to pull the driver (double set of binding posts for each box).

Ill have it all dialed in real nice by the time you get here broski. How hot do you like your bass? Haha

Beast, just unhook your mains and and feed him strictly dangerous sub-30Hz infrasonic content at +20... You might want to get a legal waiver on file, so he doesn't sue you...

Edogg, call me from the hospital.

My bad,

Guess some opinions I've been reading lately had me worrying about his internal organs liquifying. Humans can't technically hear anything below 20hz anyway, right???


lol...

Good question. Umm.... I'm not sure. Probably not. *shrugs*

Thanks Scott!

Well, it will accept two independant inputs and has an output matrix to support eight independant outputs/locations. Pretty g'damned impressive, if I may say so.

I am not familar with "the box mentioned earlier". I must have missed that part.

Another little tip that I didn't figure out right away (maybe it's obvious to most)...you can pull the phoenix connectors out, making installing the wires a lot easier. When I did the power/input side, I didn't realize they came out so I was struggling with the wires and screws with the connectors plugged in. Remove the connectors, screw in the wires, then plug the connectors back in rolleyes.gif
