    Classix II first time build

    I finally finished up the Classix II speakers that I picked up around Christmas, and they sound fantastic!

    There were a lot of mishaps along the way, but most of the mistakes could be "hidden" in one way or another.

    I enjoy woodworking and love working with my soldering iron, so I definitely think I've found my new niche! Im already itching to build something new since these ended up being too big for the living room haha.

    Here's the build album:

    Thanks everyone!

    I'm definitely enjoying them, but really need to get them away from the wall/corner that they're in right now. So, I guess next up on the list is a side console for them to sit on..

    The speakers took way longer than they should have, but I'm really happy with how they turned out. I spent entirely too long on the crossover too, especially since no one will see them, but I think it was the most enjoyable part of the build for me.

    I'm just surprised I still had all the errors I did even going so slowly with the build haha..

    They look great, and will sound great, too. Make mine look very amateurish.

    I found that they sound best on stands, and slightly away from corners.

    Well done!

    I have to tell you how impressed I am with your XO soldering skills! Just as artful as the outside of the cabinets.

    Wow. Very nice! I'd say you're a step or two ahead of your typical woodworking-speaker builder. Dadoes and mitered corners look great. I don't think a guy can go wrong building any of Paul Carmody's designs. I've built Overnight Sensations, Core 2-ways, and Sunflowers; all Paul's designs and I love all of them.
    I've built countless speakers and other projects and I don't think I've ever built one without some sort of misstep. A little imagination goes a long way in making missteps disappear.

    Very nice job! I see the stain trouble you had in the rear. I feel your pain. Overall they look great.
