Sweet, I know your time is pressed with so many builds, if you want to send me what you got worked up I would be willing to guinea pig it. I bought 2 drivers and amps but only built one 'original' box last week reserving the seconds for a 1/2 height attempt with space for an integrated plate amp.
Also, any potential builders, Mr. Hidley now offers an already modded version of the NHT amp that has a lower HP with a more even response for $40, only a $5 upcharge.
Also I found out, luckily since I built the box before the drivers showed, the Exodus can be slipped up the horn mouth into position. I didn't think it would be a problem, but then I saw the huge motor when they showed up I was worried for a second. Then I found when I cut the 3" opening for a standard PE binding post plate that all I could see was motor with the driver in place. Therefore I had to expand the opening to 5" just for clearance to get a bit in there to screw the damn thing in, which in-turn required another another hour to fab a custom plate to fit the larger opening. Oh, and then I didn't have any stubby posts, but luckily had enough room in the upper corners of the plate to fit some standard ones I had lying around. Man those little things kill you sometimes.
Therefore I suggest to do as at least one other I saw in this thread, which is to pre-install the driver before gluing the second side. Definitely will make things much easier and require less routing. Until you blow the driver and have cut an access panel to get it out
Sadly my Onkyo dusted the concentric tweeters in my mains only 15mins into testing, and that kind of killed the mood. Look forward to playing around with it some more this weekend.
