Before I made my digital cross over diagram I made paper cutouts from my son's construction paper.



Once I had the parts laid out for the first board I stacked the blank boards and used the first as a template to drill all of the holes at once.



When it came time to solder the wires I took the paper cutouts and placed them on the underside for reference.

The crossovers lined up. Man are they pretty.



And the not so pretty.



This is my custom couch speaker baffle. This is where when I first fired them up I heard no sound. Finally I realized that the DVD I was using to test was not playing. When I hit play these suckers lit right up.

That's not a very good incentive. You have it backwards. It was three speakers with receipt of kid. Now that, my friend, is a better incentive.

Rj,
Go in business and assemble them for 25$ a pop plus shipping. Put together a dozen and it pays for one speaker almost.

I did actually enjoy assembling them, but I think others have already offered this service that are more capable than I am. If I had more time I would love to learn how to etch actual boards for the circuitry.

How many kits have you put together so far? At some point you really need to focus more on a railing for your deck

Wow, I'm actually kind of blown away by that number. Great job! Now you just have to offer a curved assembly kit

45 orders! I can't believe, guessing that each order is between 1 and 3 speakers, Erich packed up somewhere between 45 and 135 packages and then dropped them off at FedEx. For free!!!! The 1099s are big heavy packages. There's a lot of people jumping into this crazy DIY/AIY audio hobby thanks to Erich's generosity and support.

No, 45 total subs. Considering I was planning on only 6 to 8 total sub being goal I am happy. My kids can do all the packaging. There is so much value in diy .

Oh, I thought you were saying there were 45 1099 orders that might be interested in XOs.

Hmmm, I don't think you understand what DIY stands for if you're having the kids do the packaging.

It is a little Inceptionesque isn't it.... If I'm using two speakers as a workbench... how did I build the first two. Frankly I don't remember.
