Also, it looks like your subs are almost complete, it'll be interesting to hear what you think of them, since you've had plenty of time to ramp up expectations, and because you've owned DD15 in the past.
I think that the one LMS-U is cleaner sounding and has a better pitch down low than my brother's dual Velodyne DD18 (not the newer + models though). Before I heard the LMS-U, I thought the DD18's were a blast, but after having lived with mine for a short while and hearing the Velodynes again, they sounded distorted, lol.
When do you hope to have them playing?
Do you think I'm going over board by using dual layer 3/4" and triple baffle? Maybe I don't even need bracing, or maybe I should settle for single layer w/ triple baffle and rear + bracing? It won't be recessed, as it must be a real PAIN to get it out if you need to. Also, it looks a little cool and brutal when it's not recessed
That track saw is really tempting, both for efficiency and precision. The first test build I did was not 100 % precise, even when I accounted for the saw blade. It's just hard to get it 100 %. Getting things square can also be a pain when using clamps to put on a guide. Have to measure a ton of times to make sure it's correct, before and after putting on the clamps, but then the vibrations from the saw might get it out of place etc. Ended up having to use the router on some of the panels to even them out, but some were cut too much. Real pain! Got it air tight by cramming in a lot of silicone between all the edges, and clamped those pieces together like a boss.
