Haha, you're welcome too. Just ain't as clean as some around here. And I always bandsaw around the XO perimeter to make it smaller, especially around the corners to make it easier to get in and out, but it kind of looks ugly. No one sees it when it's making music though

Lets just say that if your speakers sounded like your xo looked ......

It works and was no stress so exactly what I needed.

I eqd the midbass at 90hz, 110hz,and 130hz a couple of db's. Better midbass then jtr 228 as it should with two tens.(did same with 228)

Forgot to thank joe for dropping off xo.

So far really impressed tux ,
Man its heavy , about 50lbs.

I completely forgot I had sent you those! Awesome to see them again. Please post up another pic after you paint them. Some advice donny....I would hit them with primer first. They'll suck up the paint real good if you dont.

my order was this....

primer everything first

then paint everything black....iirc i used sometype of valspar plastic paint

then i used a little fire engine red nail polish that i borrowed from my wife, and once the nail polish dried. i used a little bit of high gloss spray laquer.

( the red logo is from the full size marty in the corner ) ( and the black feet are the same on both marty cubes and the full size )

Ambe, the logo and the feet were designed by one of my company's engineers, and printed on the company's 3d printer. Im not really sure what the material technically is but it feels like some kind of plastic polymer.

ps- your spending to much time on the forum and not enough time working on your subwoofer...and that's why it's taking so long!
