    @Toolfan66. Larry, do I need to PM you to order a case? I thought a separate case ordering thread would be started. Thanks, T.

    There will be another thread, as soon as I get everything together I will post one.. I made plenty..

    Thanks Larry!

    Possibly rings as well??? Oh! My.

    I just joined the forum and I am getting the distinct impression I now should go out and get the 2nd mortgage on my house...... :wink:

    Between the Transformer/s, cases, VR3 Terminal plates and possibly rings.
    I haven't even looked under the hood at cap upgrades or driver upgrades. Is this a forum or are some of you members of a Polk 12 step program?? LOL!

    Hi I'm Kevin and I don't have a problem yet but I think I am working my way too one.... :smiley:

    @F1nut, those look great! I really like the knurled thumbscrews. I am using some older MIT MH750 Music Hose for mine right now. I have picked up some MIT2 Bi-Wire (networked) that I was going to tryout. Looks like your running MIT Shotgun S1?

    There will be no updates. One day, they'll start showing up in people's mailboxes. The last two orders did arrive sooner than 12 weeks, but not this quick. Sit tight.

    He might be asking about the cases?
    While I wait for the 1000VA I have a 800VA sitting in cardboard box that could use a new home. ;-)

    Larry stated he will start a separate thread when he is ready to sell the rings and cases.
