    Bill,
    Great Call on choosing to use the Ferrari Red. Those really pop now!

    The shadow line really make the red "ok". Not cocky at all. Cant wait to hear them next weekend.

    Looks great, maybe Achilles or ACL because it looks like a leg to me, a foot up to the knee. Love them

    Since, on profile, they resemble "the boot", what about "d'Italia" for a name?

Thanks for the tip, ROTECH. A little bit on the bold side for a speaker system, but I think they look much better now. What do you think?

    I also modified the crossover using Wolf's recommended values. Most listeners at InDIYana felt that my top octave was a little hot, maybe 1-2dB or so. Wolf suggested a tweeter zobel of 4 ohms & 2.2uf. I used 4.5 ohms & 2.35uf, as these were the values that I had on hand.

    Here is the modified schematic:

    Here is the modified xsim model:

    And here is the actual measured response showing the difference between the original and modified crossover:

    Thanks again, Wolf! These values worked out quite well.

    Bill
    You are quite welcome, and that red looks GREAT!!! This is how they should look- period.
    I think Eric nailed it with the Enzo comment, but I suppose Bertone and Pinninfarina also ring true.

    Very nice!

    Wow, I never noticed your thanks for the paint idea. Looks even better than I thought it would. Your accents are perfectly done!

    Wow! And here I thought they looked good in the original color! That red makes them 10x better visually! Absolutely fantastic choice on the color! Perfect! They deserve to be hot-rodded like they are!
