    Cool build. Looks like something Henry bought for Karen.

    Wolf.. I agree with you. I was thinking of red or black leather on the outsides and the animal print on the front and back. I gave my wife the choice, happy wife happy life...and I had the fabric left over from her sub enclosure.

    I haven't heard the 64's, but their frequency response isn't much better than the peerless.

    I think I like the look better without the fabric, but as long as the WAF is met....

    An nd65 would have better low end, but since you have these try the buyout .52mh inductors with a 3 ohm resistor. For a few dollars the difference is very noticeable.

    They are a bit bright. Any suggestions as to best tame these down? Any suggestions on what a more balanced driver with maybe better low end?

    Nice job on the enclosure. I tried those peerless, and found them to be a little bright without a filter, but they have decent range.

    Thanks! these PR's are nice sounding but needed some extra mass added. I tuned this to perform its best under a cabinet or on a shelf where sometimes unwanted resonance it an issue. They took a really long time to get to me but over all they sound and look better than these.

    Looks interesting, cool finish. The angled feet spikes are a cool touch too.
    Any more details? I've seen those PRs online at different places and wondered what type of speaker they would work with.
