The TD12M driver will be in a separate compartment from the wave guide and compression driver. I will also place the crossover in the upper compartment with the wave guide and compression driver. 1.1 CF volume, after deducting driver and slot port volume.

Received my flat packs, SEOS-12's and DNA-360 drivers end of day Tuesday 11/06/12.
Decided that I am not going to use any fasteners to put my box together, just Titebond glue.

My camera skills leave a lot to be desired. I bought my wife a Nikon D5100, so maybe I will learn how to take some pictures some day. smile.gif

now for the bottom end, actively crossed dual 18sounds 15nd930's or something a little more modest? ;-)

I know that it has been said several times, but I will say it again. Erich packages up the flat pack speaker kits very well. I was so busy yesterday, that the packages sat beside for about six hours, before I even had enough time to open a box and look inside. Great packaging job. Nothing could shift around. The DNA360 and waveguide looks very nice. I was hoping to be able to put these together Saturday, but my son has an all day basketball tournament. Did a dry fit with the TD12M and waveguide, perfect fit. Thanks Erich.

Just received tracking on my three TD12M drivers. John told me 4 to 6 weeks and it looks like he is going to hit that target. smile.gif

Have I understood it right when I say that John is delivering new orders when the group buy orders are not yet finished?

Right now, I just have a tracking number. Nothing in the system yet. I paid full list price, might have something to do with it and some of the group buy guys have received their drivers. I think it depends on which drivers are completed first.

It will be 7 weeks for me tomorrow. I am jealous. Looking forward to seeing your build thread.

No build thread for me. Don't have the time. Wish I could. I have all three boxes half way glued up. I had to modify the bracing to allow the slot port. I steal a few minutes and glue and clamp a piece, then go back to work. Have to leave for my son's basketball game in about a half hour. Should have boxes glued up by this week end, then have to route the slot port. Then start sanding them and getting them ready for finishing. Don't plan to do much for finishing since they will be behind an AT screen. I took a picture of a dry fit box, with the driver and waveguide in place, but have not had time to show it.

Decided to convert this thread over to a build thread.

Here is the dry fit picture: http://i243.photobucket.com/albums/ff112/mjg100photo/Upstairs%20dedicated%20HT%20room/gastank040.jpg

A slot port will be cut in at the bottom.

Well, being one of those who is still waiting for my drivers from the group buy, I must say that upset me quite a bit. This thread is not the place to let out my feelings though..

Shoot I'm on week # 55

Also it is interesting to read the warranty terms at AE. The 3 year warranty starts from the date of purchase. biggrin.gifwink.gif I wonder if that means final payment for the GB woofers or the initial 50% down from over a year ago?

Also, I paid 100% up front. Delivery shown for Monday. I may have two spare TD12M's.

In hindsight I would not have hesitated to pay 100% up forward if I would have known that John would prioritize new orders over the group buy orders. I´m glad for your sake, but I don´t appreciate it from AE´s side. Regarding Ricci´s comment about warranty I would take for granted it would start when full payment has been made, but in AE´s case I guess anything is possible

One box complete and ready for sanding and finishing. Loaded drivers so that I could do a test listen.

Can't really tell in the picture, but the slot port is rounded over.

One front baffle left to be glued and all three of my boxes will be glued up. I have updated the first post to include a few pictures.

I listened to one speaker for a little bit and I thought that it was good. Really want to hear a pair. I have all three boxes glued up, but have to route the slot port in two of them and cut in the terminal cup opening. Then it is time to start sanding and finishing.

All three boxes built. Two sanded down, primed and filled. No much filling since I did not use any fasteners. smile.gif

Mike,

I'm dying to hear your impressions once you fire them up.
I'm seriously considering changing my whole system and would like to put these as my front stage.

Thanks

Between work, my son's sports and family obligations, I have a hard time finding any time to work on them. I hope to get them completed by Sunday, but not sure that I can do that.
