I remember those Eosone speakers. My friend always wanted them.

For me it started with a store called LaserDisc Enterprises in Marietta, GA. I did not even know HT could exist like this. There was a room with a M&K S-5000THX system with ADA equipment in a wall rack, it was coolest looking thing I ever saw. Then they fired up the DTS THX Laserdisc of Jurassic Park and till this day will never forget that demo! Of course I put together that exact system as my end goal, well, so I thought.

BTW, great build!

Well guys Chicago got hit with some really cold weather and snow so it’s slowed me down but I’ll be flush trimming both boxes today and doing some more sanding and round overs getting the boxes ready for primer. Here’s how they look today hopefully tonight these will have to ports cut out and prepared for primer hopefully...

Three coats of primer and now on to Duratex. So far three coats on the bottom and sides tomorrow I’ll flip it over and finish up the top side. So far so good zero issues.

Thanks I use the spray grade Duratex and apply it with a Wagner spray gun from menards. You can add a little bit of water to it but not much or else it sprays like water I learned the hard way in the past. Also having the paint room temperature helps to. The roller grade looks like a satin type of paint and the spray grade is more like a eggshell or flat finish. If you’ve seen any JTR boxes it looks similar to that.
Once I put the final coat is on today I’ll send pictures to Wayne if he hasn’t seen any from this thread yesterday. I know he travels for work.

Ive been watching for this build thread. Those 2 chanes you sold me integrated really well with the ultimax. I see you went from another 21" to 3 altogether now. Its going to be pretty crazy once all 3 are wired in.

im definitely going to try the wagner this summer. i have an uncoated box thats been sitting around for over a year now. Nice to know the wagner will spray this. I didnt even think about it since the wagner had troubles spraying deck stain.

Sandpaper I just sand the box really good and If there’s any seems left I use drywall mud and lightly fill it in with that after the first coat of primer. I sand with 50 grit to start after using a flush trim bit then 120 and finish with 220 grit sandpaper. Three coats of primer applied and sand between coats with 220 grit. Three coats of Duratex to I think the sides and front got 6 coats because I flipped the box over so the bottom would get painted first.

I use this exact sprayer nothing special to it. The only thing is make sure you clean the sprayer between coats. once you stop take it apart and clean it or else it clogs easy.

At the risk of sounding like some paid commercial, I think that most here would agree that we usually don't see this kind of work or attention to detail except on a commercial scale. I can personally attest that Mike is not some commercial shop, has no cnc machine or fancy commercial spray booth but yet turns out product that causes you to think otherwise. This is incredible work. When I've called Mike out of the blue to ask a question or run a scenario by him he's always made time for me. He has solid communication and is able to balance work, family life and his passion. I'm very much looking forward to this Sunday when all of this comes together.

I'm glad that the Chanes found a good home. I would definitely have kept them but apparently I was pulled in different direction.

I can tell you that they were easier to move than the first 21" box I bought from Redfive. I don't think John cut down the a whole forest to make that box . I'm expecting that the 2 boxes that Mike will be bringing up on Sunday will be more manageable since they will be empty and we'll drop in the drivers after they arrive.

Thanks for sharing Mike. I just started spraying with my last project and although I’m happy with the results, the joints are noticeable in the right light.

Keep up the amazing work!

A few pictures when I dropped the subs off at Wayne’s House this past weekend. The pictures are Wayne and his room. If anyone has ran the mini dsp DDRC-88A send Wayne a message or post here I couldn’t get it going I think I had software issues with it or I was just missing something when I set it up. Either way Wayne still needs help with it so please send him a pm if you can help him out.

Thank you. It's true that things got somewhat frustrating when we discovered that we couldn't get all eight channels to work instead only getting 7 channels and then out of the blue the channels would switch when they worked a moment ago in the dirac live software. Thanks for the link and I will take a look at it but I will tell you that Mike did a hell of a job on those boxes and spent a great deal of time trying to figure out the DDR-88A Dirac live Minidsp. A workable temporary solution I think at this point is to hook everything back up to my Marantz 7703 pre-pro and attach the two front 21" subs and run Audyssey and let the system run that way for now until I can find someone that knows the DDRC-88A. Unfortunately I won't be able to run the 3rd 21" sub which is nearfield directly behind the seating position for the time being. I have two sub outs on the pre-pro but I don't know if I can add a y adapter to the front two and run them off one channel and run the third one on the second channel.

As for your kind words about my time in the Marine Corps, Thank you. Not always the best of times but I'd do it again without thought or reservation.

If your front 2 subs are the same distance from your MLP (they appear to be), you can do that.

Yup. Do that and then your golden! (Until you get Dirac working).
