    Hi, I'm really late to the game on this thread, but is there a crossover schematic for this build? I'm new to DIY speakers (my only experience is building the C-Note speakers and the Blast Box), so I'm not good enough to tell from the pictures how the parts in the crossover should be wired together. I should be able to follow a rough sketch if you have one. If not, thanks anyway and great looking build!
    Let me see if I can find it.

    In a similar way, it is frustrating, as my father frequently said, cutting 3 times, and finding a measurement is still too short.

    Is the spacing between the drivers a bit different from left to right? Or is that an optical illusion?
    Yes it's off a bit - my wife keeps telling me to measure twice, cut once. Maybe I need to measure 4 times, cut once😊

    I'm reading some of these in the style of Eminem - Stan

    You plainly stated that Kai -ros was the incorrect pronunciation of the name. But this is just like you stating you "mis-rememdeted." It is ok to just say I was wrong. Can you admit that you are occasionally wrong ? We are all wrong at times. The rest of us can admit it, we don't have to protect our ego by stating we mis-remembered. It is still ok if you have to "mis-remember" tjough.

    My statement of 'Miera' was only to reflect the pronunciation in reference to 'Miura', as you never used 'Miera' as I spelled it here. I don't think you're a moron.
    Both were Miura as typed and introduced here on PETT.

    And Craig- I never said I was wrong or right in the pronunciation of 'Kairos', just that I say it how Jeff says it (You can go look if you want), and that it's his project. He says 'Kayr-oss', so that is what it is. The reference to Greek vs Egyptian is that 'Cairo' is as most people state the name of this project, and is also generally the first thought about origin as I've seen here on the forum. I didn't get 'caught up in my own story'. It's the truth.

    Derek- nice work! Sorry if I dragged down your thread,
    Wolf

    Technically, if you want to argue pronunciation of the word "Miura", Top Gear pronounced it more like "mir-uh", this is also how Jay Leno pronounces it. I pronounced it more like "my-u-ra" when I announced it. And what you're saying doesn't entirely add up... so you're saying you knew I named it after the Lamborghini Miura, but you just thought I was a moron and couldn't find out how to spell it correctly? Please explain.

    Yes, and FTR, I didn't meet Derek in Kentucky :p. Hopefully one of these days we'll run into each other though, and maybe I'll get to hear your Miura JRs :D.

    When did anyone say anything about it being anything but Greek. Then he is wrong to because my friend that is from Greece and Greek is his native language pronounces it Kai - ros and I think he knows more about greek than the two of you. Tou got caught up in your story Ben , just ssy your wrong and be done with it.

    Jeff says 'Kare-oss', so I say it as he does. It is NOT from Egyptian, but from Greek. He named it and ought to know.
    And I am no liar.
