    Really nice job. I think what you'll find is another sub woofer will make a ton of difference.

    Ahh, thank you Djg.

    Joe, did you double wall the continuum boxes? I am trying to understand the pictures in post #13. I am a bit of a wood working rookie

    Thanks all! They sound great. I build them for my office, I work from home and usually listen to music 4-5 hours a day so I wanted something that sound great and was easy to listen to. These fit the bill, I can listen to them all day long.

    I am using the Dayton amp to low and high pass to blend the monitors with the sub. The Continuum's have a bass boost built into the low end which is fine if you don't have a sub but I had to cut it out a bit to keep from having an exaggerated response in the... I think it may have been 80-100hz or so range.

    Here's some work in progress shots from the build. I'll have to make a few posts to attach them all.

    The Dayton 250DSP plate amp controls the high and low passes.

    Beautiful rendition.
    Are you high-passing the mains?
    Really nice setup.

    I did the same thing with mine. Although, I messed up the rear and ended up gluing the backs.

    Nice job.

    I also like the 250 DSP amp, I have 2 PE 8" kits. The concept really works great for 2.1 sound from a simple stereo source.
