    Looks good! Nice wiring job too. How's the sound?

      And I was waiting for woodwork ... silly me. Really nice, love the retro look.

      Are those NPE caps on the TBs?

      I've used these to add some customization / personalization to projects: If you search around eBay, you'll find vendors offering different tag colors, shapes, sizes and fonts. I've used MS-PowerPoint to model, print and cutout tags to see how a design would look prior to ordering.

        Yes they are NPE caps from PE. It was the easiest place to put them. I just talking to the wife this AM about a plate to put on the back. I already have an idea on that one.

        Jeff,

        It sounds pretty good given the enclosure and its limitations. The Lowe end is present and the off axis is decent as well. The 1053 is a great little 3". It is a highly portable and light solution which makes it great for a 7 year old.

          Today was her birthday. I took half the day off and surprised her by picking her up as school. The wife normally picks her up. I told her this morning I had a surprise for her when she got home. I handed her a plain brown box and as she opened up a box full of parts she had the biggest smile. She had a blast assembling and and got to learn what drivers, amplifiers, chargers, bluetooth modules and batteries are. She is a pretty hands on kid and is not afraid to dig in. We got her an iPod Nano and loaded some music on for her. The first thing she asked for was AC/DC Back in Black.






          She installed each board and plugged everything is.

                  She looks right at home with all the hand tools, very cool. And who would have guessed AC/DC would be on her wish list, Daddy doesn't like AC/DC does he? You can't buy what she will have learned about this project from a store and she will remember it and appreciate it for a very long time. Nice Job Gordy!
