IMHO: I think one of the beauties about the DIY aspect is that it is built for and by you. No company names, models or stickers on the thing. I like it blank and only the speakers and finish choice...

My apologies, I thought you were saying there were time savings versus brad nails and glue.

I really don't see the time savings. You have to drill out holes, use a clamp to line it all up, then use a drill to drill in the screws. I've got the Kreg system and it's good for certain uses, but...

Yeah, I want to say they are in North Carolina. That's what I recall from my last two orders. I'm in Tennessee and the shipping takes 1 day and it's cheap. I'll break down at some point and get 2...

It is totally dependent on where you live in relation to their location. It's only $53 to ship 2 subs to me.

I'm fighting the temptation to order two more. Wife would probably not like two more...

Since it's midbass and you're on a budget, wouldn't those Eminence LAB 15s be a decent choice? At $210 for two, seems like you could load up on those.

Why get an IXL for $330 vs a $179 SI? You can get two SI for almost the same price. There may be a legitimate reason, but it's a good question.

Well that's strange. I don't care for Kodi.

Wonder why they didn't just rename it something with the same XBMC acronym? That way they could keep the acronym, but avoid using xbox in the title.
