Default Finished my GC!

After a few days of planning, building and hooking everything up, I've finished my first GC. This also was my first electronics venture to date. I've got an active crossover thats next on my list.

Here are some pics:

Yep, par metal.


Well, the pictures were taken BEFORE I knew if it worked or not.

It doesn't.


Well, actually, the right channel works, I guess. At full volume from my CD players variable output, its 80db at most. This is into some Atlantic Technology MTMs (dual 6 1/2 I think).

The left channel... nada, nothing. Silence.

I will say, that when I first plugged it in, not hooked up to anything, there was a slight snapping sound, but, it didn't smell as if anything burned up.

I'm still rechecking my connections, but, its not like its that difficult, so far, the input is OK from a connectivity standpoint. Checking output now.

I'm also going to look into the troubleshooting section.

beautiful case and layout. only thing i would change would be the switch. some of the computer modding companies have some beautful led-lit buttons. a nice centered, silver w/ blue led light would make that thing perfect.

dont mind me, as your GC is hands down 10x better looking then any of mine. i need some spare cash for cases.....
