    YEAHHHHHH!!!!

    [​IMG]


    Built to Adire specs, with MDF enclosure painted with Rustolium satin black. With 3/4" Baltic Birtch 13 ply for the driver board, used a BEHLEN Solar-Lux™ Stains in red mahogany that some one recommended from woodcraft.com and 7 coats of wipe on satin poly from Rockler.com.

    I constructed the pressure rings from 1/2" BB ply and a few intimate hours with my router. I ascetically I think it adds so much to the enclosure.

    One thing that I would have done different, I was a little cheap and used the same stainless steel hardware on the AV8's that I used on my Crown Rack, which means that I had to bend my arm and reach in and hand fasten the lock nuts behind the driver board, granted I saved 10 bucks or so but it took me a 45 minutes to get both drivers in.

    I finished it last night, after a few hours soldering and assembling in the hallway of my dorm and sadly it was quite hours so I couldn't really hear what it sounds but tonight I will let her breath and hook it up to the DC300A

    Looks very nice man!
    I really like the trim rings!

    I built an LCC a few months ago (enclosure from acoustic-visions...I miss having a tablesaw), it's definately a great center channel.

    Wow awesome work! Those rings around the woofers make it look very professional. Too bad you didnt make one for that ugly pin cushion frame midrange [​IMG].
