    I heard the Australian Govt wanted him to build a 6 lane highway from Brisbane to Melbourne but he said the job was just not challenging enough. :biggrin:

    Been a bit slow latley as the trimmings are taking a lot of time and have a few other things going on but promise to be uploading some more pictures shortly.

    I'm in awe. You're right not to call yourself a carpenter, you're a cabinet maker! By the way, don't even tell me that the body of that car is made of wood!!! :) Excellent work. I'd like to make a pair of RCA LS-II cabinets for a pair of my LC-1s but they're out of my league from both a skill and equipment standpoint so I would never dream of taking on cabinets of that complexity. Very, very nice.

    Whenever you feel like you want to get better sound out of your speaker, the crossover is where you want to be (it's fun to play around with too).

    The coil placement on the right could be better, if you can't position them in another way, try to position one of the coils in a 90 degree angle. This will surely help the coils perform in its intended value. See:
