No rail just adds a little adventure . Cmon fatshaft. If you had to choose between a railing and 3 1099 which would you choose ?

Actually the railing is going up in about a month.

Make him sweat a little, especially since I'm going to be taking back my 228's very soon!...lol
Not to mention there's already someone inline before him waiting for a crossover from you....lol

The ultratouch demin stuff is the same price/size. Do you recommend the foam over the cotton insulation for both ported and sealed cabinets?

I would go with the denim. It has properties close to fiberglass. It's a better absorber. Whether it would make a noticeable difference, I don't know.

I have half of the veneer done. Will be done in a couple of hours.

I went with birch veneer. Got a really nice piece with beautiful figure for 42$.

Very nce work, Donny. The veneer looks great. Inspiring. I want to try 3M Di Noc carbon fiber wrap on some speakers, hopefully 1099s.

None. Most speakers can be ported out the back or bottom if given room. I think Erich puts all his ports in front so people don't have to cut them out. Some like to see ports. Myself I don't .

It probably wouldn't be a problem but you'd probably want to make the cabinet deeper so that the overall internal volume stays the same.
