    Yep, Wolf is right...we have it at Parts Express. Available in black, grey, and white.

    Ooh, looks so cool. My original binding posts are on back order until 4/13. So I called PE to cancel the binding post order and replace with a different binding post. I was also able to sneak in the .22 caps and .205 female disconnect for free shipping. I can start building my C note by the end of the week. My vinyl cutting tool also arrived at HD.

    Thanks Chris. As I put in an earlier post, I don't need another pair of 'workshop speakers' at the moment, but these really are great value. I really asked the question on behalf of other purchasers.


    As I noted in an earlier post, the landed cost for these in Australia is far less than I could purchase the parts and MDF for!

    I think PE will sell a heap of these, and if it gets people started in DIY that would be great.

    Good luck

    Geoff

    Hey Geoff,
    No reason what so ever... You could install the crossover anytime.

    You could also use one of our 3" x 5" perforated boards for a little cleaner look. Print the point-to-point diagram from the manual and use it as a template, it is pretty much to scale. Mount the components to the board and make all the connections on the back (the leads are just long enough). Install the boards with a couple screws (not as permanent as my gorilla glue method, lol).

    Hello

    Thank you for the video, it always helps to have a guide - especially for the crossover!
    I have a question about the assembly sequence for the cabinet: for people with big hands, would it be easier to attach the front baffle after the crossover has been installed, and the binding posts connected to the crossover? Or is there a reason why the cabinet has to be completed before you do this?

    Just a thought, but I know in my case doing things in that order would be less fiddly and reduce swear word output.

    Thanks again to PE for an absolute bargain

    Geoff

    Yes, I might add a second coat to my overnight sensations with water based poly or just use neutral shoe polish ( I cannot seem to find neutral in the stores anymore). Anyway the overnight sensations with real wood looks nice unfinished or with one polyurethane coat.

    The C-Note has to be painted or covered because the MDF looks ugly unfinished and MDF also has bad odor.

    Check out Renaissance wax. Haven't tried it yet myself, but plan to.

    Thanks JHollander. Let me think a few days about which direction I will go first. I may build something else and have more orders from PE and will be able to get the caps directly from PE.

    I've got some .22 polyester caps I can mail, send me a PM with your address if you are interested.

    Those Tang Bands are super nice. That will be a fun tiny project.

    I just posted my questions for my next full range build in a new thread. Suggestions anyone? I am mostly thinking of TB 2142 or TB 2143 but am open to other drivers.

    A 40 db drop at the peak woofer breakup is worth having. But if I want to get the caps, I will probably have to wait until i have enough to buy to get the free shipping. I am cheap and not going to pay $7.00 shipping for $3.00 of caps. I am thinking of building another full range somewhat like my TB W3 2141 in the Denova .04 cu ft enclosure. I will start another thread asking for advice.
