Finally!!!!! Neutrik, Dreadnought, etc..

Well it's been awhile since I have modded anything, and I have had all of this stuff for a year or better just sitting around..

I pulled my 1.2tl's out, and replaced my binding post plates, my Dreadnought, and finally made some MIT cables, I did this as I have wanted to use the Neutrik's that Jesse recommended when he did his. I of course built a case for myself when some of you had the group buy going on..

The Neutrik's are so much better then the binding posts, I love it...

    I almost forgot what fun it is to solder, while listening to some tunes, and sipping on a drink...

    I'd expect nothing less than stellar build quality and execution from you Larry.

    Looking very nice!

    Just saw this thread. Looks great Larry!

    So what did the crossovers cost you? $3.00 to $4.00? $3.59 as a guess? Somewhere in that price range? :p
    Taken from a recent Audioholics reply regarding "Club Polk" and Polk speakers:

    My response is: If you need 60 seconds to respond in one sentence, you probably should't be evaluating Polk speakers.....

    Very Nice Larry!

    I did a similar mod. Scompracer mounted by Neutrik connectors similar to your on my SRS 2.3s with great results!

    Here is a pick:

    I will NEVER get tired of seeing the craftsmanship that is going into these speakers.

    I hope to be able to install some of these works of art in my set(s) someday too.
