    Thanks. I've wanted a pair of those chairs for years.

    I will use the Continuums in my PC 2.1 system. That has a PE 8" 250 watt DSP kit built sub. I can easily manipulate that sub out of the sound so I can hear them full range. I have several sets of 2 way speakers from Quarks to Zingers that I rotate in for the PC sound.

    I might set them up temporarily in my living room, but I have a sub there too.

    Dig, your cabs look great, and your Adirondack chairs do too. I have a pair of them, along with a dual seat, on my back patio. I love those chairs. Are you going to run a sub with the Continuum? Glenn.

    Kit arrived today, from the MI speaker source. All top quality stuff. Large gauge twisted pair wiring, Solen woofer cap and Cebo tweeter caps as recommended. Back to work soon.

    Documentation includes some clear color photos of the interior of Mr. Bagby's original pair, and a detailed baffle layout to duplicate the original look.

    I couldn't find any decent 1 by treated lumber. This is Menard's select pine. Radiata farm grown pine from NZ. Very nice, very pricey. Looks like Douglas fir. I have a product Penofin Marine Oil Wood Finish that can be applied with a garden sprayer and wiped off. My kind of finish. I will update after finish, super damp here at present.

    Those chairs look nice. Pine? Did you seal them?

    While waiting for backordered woofers, i built these simple Adirondack lawn chairs from plans on the internet.

    Looking really nice!

    I like the creativity of using two thicknesses to make the side panels There's some clever work going on!

    I think that's about it until I get the kit.

    Looking good. They'll be worth the work. It's hot out there, stay cool

    Back panels. Not as hard as anticipated. The baffles have a 1/8" edge gap.

    Backs need a bit of edge adjustment for a uniform visual gap.

    Sanded. Hot and humid today. Should have had Kevin K make these.

    Next the picture frame solid cherry trim to get the measure of the stack up of cleats and baffles/rear panels to flush up to the trim. I'm sure I'll have to trim the cleats individually for a fair fit.
