    Oh they'll be welded onto the backside of the tweeter next time, when I do the complete rebuild in solid carbonite - with Han Solo sticking out the sides...

    Hey, you've waited a few years to get this far, might as well go all out!
    But I'm afraid that 8 gauge battery cable's gonna pull the terminals right off that tweeter! :D

    They're literally about the same diameter as a quarter, lol.

    Oh yeah and 26.8 lbs each.

    I could try some tractor lugnuts made from solid copper and plated in Adamantium next time :D

    Thanks guys, finally getting these finished up. If I counted correctly, this is version 5 haha

    Couldn't you find anything beefier to hook these up with than those wimpy binding posts?

    J/K. I've used them a few times, they are very manly connectors.

    Looking good man.

    Alright, I've got one speaker completely finished, save for maybe some stuffing, if it's needed. Tomorrow after work, if the weather's not too bad, I'll try getting some measurements made Also, still waiting for my MiniDSP to come in the mail.

    Nevermind the n00b mistakes like the razorblade slash and router bites, lol.

    Hmmm... It'll be close ;D

    I got them all flushed up, filled some spots with filler, gonna go back out there in a little bit to finish sanding them, and put a coat of Zinsser sealer/primer on them, at least they'll show up with some color on them that way, lol.

    The rule is that any design must be "finished" no earlier than 3 hours before you are scheduled to leave for a DIY event.

    I want to chime in and say that I'm also interested in seeing what these things are going to weigh.

    Alright they're both glued up, the internal wiring is done, and I'm going to hit them both with the flush-cut bit after I recover from a giant delicious lunch
