A friend of mine works at a cabinet company and will assemble and sand any of the flat packs for pretty cheap. My dad has been painting many of them with Duratex. At that point all you need to do...

It's a good compression driver, but most of what you hear is the work of the crossover and how the designer wants it to sound in the speaker.

I think Jeff and Curt design their speakers to be a...

You might want to watch out how loud you're actually listening. Your other speakers might seem 'loud' because at high volumes they have more distortion.

But one thing about these speakers is that...

It won't really cause any problems unless it's actually blocking parts of the port entrance.

With this speaker you would really have to be cranking them up to some high levels before you'd have any chuffing noises with the port. And at that point you wouldn't hear it anyway because your...

If you get a good photo of the assembled crossover I'll remove part values and post it on the site to help out people that build them later.

That's not correct. You sent a Fusion-8 and MTG90 and I looked it over and worked on it....not a Fusion-10. Don't take this the wrong way but you didn't build any part of that speaker correctly. ...

Putting foam or polyfill behind the waveguide doesn't do anything to the highs coming from the compression driver.

It's recommended that polyfill is put up behind the waveguide simply because...
