Yes you would want to give them a slight angle upwards, but at your distance it shouldn't be much. The 88-Special is quite a few steps above what you have now, you will be surprised at the...

I think most people with a 15" go with the ported cube. I'm hoping to have another run of the 18" Stonehenge done soon along with a more standard cube shape for the ported 18".

Sorry, it's not even close.

The FedEx account I have ties in with the website shopping cart program. So it calculates shipping very close. The customer pays it, I package and print the FedEx...

What would you like him to say? :D

It's a very powerful speaker that can do 32hz, or lower if you wanted a bigger lower tuned enclosure. Smooth midrange, nice highs, and massive bass output. ...

I think separate cabinets might be a little easier to build and move around. You could also toe in the separate cabinets much easier and in less room by leaving the bottom portion where it was and...

Those prices will probably fluctuate around a bit until I see how much is needed to cover the 'free shipping'. I estimated $40 per speaker but the panels are pretty big and that 12" woofer weighs...

That Zu Audio is not a real subwoofer and wouldn't take much to stress it badly with movies. I believe it uses two 10" Eminence Legend guitar woofers going by the photos. Those aren't custom made...

I just talked with Celestion on the phone. The 4" mids are in the country.

3 baffles with that plywood sandwiching them would probably weigh over 70lbs which would be really expensive to ship with FedEx. The rest of the parts still need shipping. Six 18's, three 12, three...

I think I have enough 5" mids for about 10-12 more 1099's. But no flat packs, only front baffles because the flat packs sold out with the last group buy.

There are some 5" mids that I sat aside...

Shipping wouldn't be too bad if a person bought 3 of them and they shipped on a pallet. But it would still come out to about $100 each for shipping. I think there was roughly $60 - $70 left over to...

I was talking with MTG90 and he said a single one of these MBMs will do nearly 120db. So I'm not sure what you crazy people are thinking with more than 2-3 up front. :D

It looks like the 893 kit will go from $356 down to about $319 or so with the new capacitors. That's a pretty significant savings. I'm still waiting on exact costs for the midranges from Celestion,...

Good news on the 893 costs. The 94uF cap can be electrolytic but I couldn't find one around that value so I went with the much more expensive poly cap. Tux said we could use two 47uf caps wired in...
