      I'm 45, have one for myself, and both of my businesses. It is a great tool to drive people to your site. How else will you find people? Word of mouth is obviously the best, but you need to have traffic on your site to make sales.

                    I'd get rid of Waterlox varnish in the description and throw in something like "long oil varnish" , hand rubbed to perfection.
                    Aniline dye is a stain in fact, because it.... well stains the wood, ie colors it.... but, it's a translucent, transparent stain that only accentuates natural grain effects and not obscuring unlike majority of oil stains that tend to make everything look the same.
                    Also, the understating among "high end"/audiophile golden ear crowd (not to critique your loudspeakers at all) that capacitors need to be chosen correctly based on their sound and integration with the drivers/speakers/crossover topology. So by offering the choice of caps, you may be introducing a dilemma to some.
                    Other then that, site looks great! It's fast too. Nice pictures. Congrads and good luck!

                      I can even find value in those speakers. As a whole, both the speakers and the site are very well done. I think even a novice will realize your product is something special. Good luck! I hope you don't need it! Seriously, everything is looking great.

                        The only crap I can think to crap is:

                        What's the deal with the plastic screwed-in port tube? Everything else about the Cirrus looks first-rate, but the port tube looks like something you'd find on (no disrespect intended) an entry-level DIY project. I can't think of a worse-looking port tube, and I always cringe even when I see it on someone's project (including MartyH's Coppers; at least he thought to paint his).

                        I didn't say anything about this when I knew the Cirrus as a one-off, but if it's going to be a commercial product in that price range, the plastic port tube is a big hit against fit and finish. It's not even flush with the rear of the cabinet.

                        From a fluid mechanics perspective, the ideal reflex vent (with the largest characteristic dimension in the Reynolds Number equation for a given surface area) is a round (cylindrical) vent that is flared at either end. Just FYI.

                          Honestly, this site is as nice as the other hi-fi brands in terms of look and feel. it is light years beyond most small-shop audio product websites. So far, so good!

                          I'm curious how the Facebook would pan out, because I feel the same as Ryan (eg: made it this far without one)
                          Isn't it about time we started answering rhetorical questions?

                            One small quibble on the website--on the front page there is that 'highlights' box, for lack of a better term. The problem it that even if you click on one of the page buttons for it, it still rolls to the next one in like 5 seconds, making it near impossible to read in one, or even two, goes.

                            Otherwise looks great, good fit'n finish.

                              Very slick, hats off to your Javascript/CSS guy. Overall, it looks rich, and professional without too much bling.

                              If it were me, I'd find some better wood grain for the title bar (pine looks too rustic to me), and pop those navigation buttons with bigger text or bolder color.

                              Good luck, hope you reel in a few whales...;)

                              "Different" is objective, "better" is subjective. Taste is not a provable fact.

                                From personal stand point if you don't want a facebook account there is no need to have one. They are an incredible waste of time. From a business standpoint, if one doesn't have a bunch of money to spend on marketing it is a great opportunity.

                                That said, how do you find your target market on facebook? Can you create a mass of people with the right friends who will drive page views that can be converted to sales?

                                The most beautiful website around does you no good if customers don't see it. It is a great looking site and he is getting nice reviews of the site here on the forum, but will likely generate no sales.

                                Free is a good price for marketing to a small business. I can just imagine him posting gallery pics, some youtube videos of of his painstaking care in building the cabinets, and doing reviews of the drivers he uses and why. His customers would likely eat that stuff up. People love behind the scenes peaks. His target client would love it, the guys here would critique everything about it.
