How long did you have to wait between coats?

BTW, the finish looks good.

In my room with the heaters right next to the boxes, they were try to the touch in about a half hour. I waited around 45 minutes or so.

sounds like magnet strength.

take one pill and the speaker doesnt do much but fill the room.
or
take the other pill and the speaker could push you over with air.

to fill the middle of the K
because being pushed by the speaker cone isnt much when the room has 30-40ft between the walls.

What if the cone is really, really big?

Nice work on the subs. They look great!

Heh, that's a bit optimistic but would be awesome. If the Caps sell I will order the next round of drivers right away.

Austin (popalock) is building an identical box to use in testing for our GTG - this may wind up being my 4th box. biggrin.gif

i thought he was building a box for the 15s that were on sale this week for 99$ at PE? or is he building one for each size?

He is building a box for 15 dual opposed as well as 18 dual opposed. Stay tuned for the details of the dual 18" box. biggrin.gif

Nice work on the subs. They look great!

because most people put those big cones under the floor.
or they build something like a lat that you can climb inside of, big like a triple deck carousel.

(but lets get to where we are constantly dropping and simply side-stepping to land on a platter)

quoting just for the heck of quoting as some posts are burying your awesome work.

:-)

for some reason, the aluminum cone just looks cool against the matte black enclosure.

tough choice to go grilled or raw. :-)

..end the chain of pattern now and say it needs to be raw.

because we've heard better from peerless speakers out of a box in the 1930's with smoke in the air filling up the room with audio and smoke.
as if there is no decadance in the air .

Haha, thanks LTD. It is a tough call, I've been removing and reattaching the grills every time I go down the basement to figure out what I like. My wife actually said she prefer the looks of the raw driver!! It's absolutely a great looking cone.

Are there measurements for a dual opposed config on the site? I couldn't find them if so. mad.gif
