What sub to do you want? How about a AV15X + 2PR in a 4 cuft box + LT/1300?? I have extras sitting around.
I will try and give it a decent finish

Through personal effort, trial and error, he's actually gotten pretty good at it. He's also not been shy in posting pictures of his builds. I myself have chided Penn some time back and have busted his balls on some of his builds. Penn's not some prima donna though who can't stand criticism so he takes the banter in stride. So, what you perceive to be a hidden jab at CHT products, I see as Penn poking a bit of fun at himself.
But you know, CHT products aren't going to get better looking and up to acceptable commercially produced standards by not talking about it. Or by being enamored by the performance. Or by saying the finish isn't important because they're behind a screen. Or by saying you can't tell unless you're up close. Or by trivializing defects like nail holes and visible plywood grain. Or by saying their Made in America.
Problems such as have been exhibited have the very real consequence of signficantly diminishing the value of the products on the retail market. So, if you're looking to sell your CHT product, because of the sundry cosmetic blems, you can expect less. There's a lot of folks here who look to upgrade or change out their systems and having a product that has blems and defects doesn't help their money situation. If CHT wants to stop the talk then figure out how to do the job right and then figure out how to package and ship it. Fans of the company do no favor by trivializing matters, playing the blame shifting game, saying things are improving, or just not talking about it. Instead the fans then become enablers.
