Most fun I have had in a long time!

Not done but too excited not to post a pic or two!

1.2tl crossover. The V arrangement in the tweeter network allowed for almost no jumper leads, was excellent!

    Very nice presentation and layout. Looks like a LOT of hard work that you made look easy. Those custom boards are trick.

    Got it.

    Hopefully the recipient of these is a forum member so we can get some before/after listening impressions.

    Did you use a stain on the wood to get it to look like that?

    The main board is a wood species called "Chakte Viga" and the connector pieces are mounted in mahogany

    All just have a simple clear coat

    Do those grow in NC??? :D I've watched that 'Swamp Loggers' show, but didn't see them harvesting any of that. ;)

    Super sweet! Too bad the end result is hidden. I'd have had you build one with a 3/8" thick lexan plate so you can see the awesomeness!

    Unfortunately lexan can not be cut with a laser! Otherwise that would be sweet! I could use acrylic but acrylic can literally split into pieces, nothing like doing a build and then have it split in half!

    Thanks guys! Dunno about being in the guggenheim hahhaa

    Apparently in South America they use those trees for fence post untreated and last 100 years? Go figure. Beautiful wood though, cuts great with the laser. Smoke pours out the exhaust like a chimney out the sid eof my house! I tape all of the seams of my printer before I hit the magical blue button though so it stays fresh inside with no smell!

    Those must be the Duelund cast caps, those are supposed to sound awesome. I don't think too many people get ears on those, being they cost so much money.
