    Hey PassingInterest - you might want to hold up on that crossover work.
    I think I posted several weeks ago that the 10 degree lean back would require
    a crossover tweak at minimum, and maybe more. Working on that aspect now.

    When did he rename them the Pallas Palace? I missed it.

    I wanted to drill all the boards at once to save time.

    I put the tweeter circuit on a separate board to make sure I wouldn't have a close proximity issue with cross-talk induction between the tweeter's coil and the ones for the woofers. The components are soldered. I just need to add the wires and use some hot melt glue.

    Make America grateful again..... Jerry Garcia would have been proud of that many speakers in one place.

    Look at my second post. I intend to make something like that. I don't have a lathe, so I spin some stock in the drill press and sand it as it spins. Well, here is the photo again, so you don't have to flip a few pages back to see it. The base also gives additional stability to counteract the rearward lean of the cabinets.

    Thanks, Don! We all help each other in this hobby.

    I wanted to use up some automotive primer I had in the garage. I did. It's gone. So, from this point, I will spray/sand/spray/sand some water based polyurethane, until I fill the grain and get the surfaces smooth. Then I will paint them black.

    Interesting method to trim the top flush.
    In retrospect, it's obvious since the top is not a 90 degree angle.
    I learn something from every post you make.

    The 3 pair look incredible!

    Now to trim the top flush with the back and the bottom edge of the baffle flush with the cabinet bottom. I already started, before I got the idea to stop and get a picture.

    Rather than plunge all the way down to the surface, I rest the bit on a thin piece of cardboard. After I route, I will have just a little bit to sand flush.

    I just rocked the cabinet and rolled through the curve to trim the baffle flush with the sides.

    Thanks, Kevin! I always think that I move way too darned slow on my projects. At the end of each day, I think, "I know I was busy all day, but is that all I got done"?

    I've got a couple more pictures. I'll post them tomorrow.
