Please don't take offense Icehawk but I think I heard them say that each cabinet is a 5 week process, between the layering, drying, re-layering, drying, painting, polishing, and then once the final application is applied it is sanded by hand in many steps from 360 grit (in and around there) all the way up to 2000 - 4000 grit and then the final polishing by hand
. And this is all before the drivers and amps even come close to the cabinet. This thing is as thick as the hull on a 57' sport-fishing boat, it is a phenomenally unbelievably well built enclosure. I got some pretty good pictures of it, I will try to post them later. Suffice it to say folks, JL is a very serious, professional and dedicated audio company who blew us all away today at the tour. Committed to excellence is a gross understatement, when it comes to these guys, hats off gentlemen.
