    Thanks guys. Tom, there are flaws and you will see them. Eric, I plan to bring them to MWAF as the PE guys would like to see them but they can't compete so they may not get a chance to play.

    Nice job dude! That's some top notch enclosure work. I agree with the AMT's light response on the top end. I used the little AMT on my 442's for the same reason. Are you going to bring those to MWAF 2016?

    John,

    Don't you ever get sick of producing perfect cabinets? Come on, let's see some veneer tear-out, an uneven driver recess or something every once in awhile, mix it up a bit!

    Seriously, those are beautiful looking speakers.

    Looking at the frequency response graph on page 8 of your PDF I see now why you used the little Dayton neo as a supertweeter. That's a cool idea. Those little buggers really have good 'sparkle', an efficient tool to help the drooping top end of the AMT.

    You're a good person to be one of the 'design team' crew, congratulations!

    Hi Channing, thanks. The tweeter messed with me a bit as I did not want to spend much $ on something most wouldn't hear. So yes I used a bunch of values. I spread the resistors out to get the tilt I wanted then settled for the resistor values that PE stocks. Using PE stocked x-o parts is a compromise I usually don't have to deal with.

    Thanks - still looks beautiful even without a contrast color.

    Wow, those driver recesses are flawless! Looks good, too. Did you try out any other Lpad values on the tweeter?

    Immaculate fit and finish and I love the way the grain of the veneer goes with the pleats in the AMT driver.
