So I just ordered the drivers. I got the half tower kit from css in case I doubt myself last minute. Plus it comes with pretty useful accessories. Gonna buy some plywood this weekend and hopefully get started. I'm pretty excited.
Thanks for the guidance you will probably be hearing from me soon!

Well guys, it was a much bigger task than expected. Working on and off for what seemed like forever I am finally at a point where I can listen to the speakers. As you might see I made a few sloppy cuts that I need to fill in and sand over but here is a picture of my attempt at the Mar-Kel70. After listening tests I can say that the bass is AMAZING given the size of the driver. Without taking driver size into account bass is still superb. Very nice and tight. The speaker really sounds great. Hopefully after breaking in it will sound even better!

Well done... expect them to keep getting better for some 500 hrs. Particularily the mids as you approach that number.

Wow, a fonken as a first DIY project.
I have build a set of jim griffin enclosures for the alpair 10.2, and i must say: i made a few mistakes, but....they sound soooo sweet, and it gets better every day
Enjoy your first build, and good luck on the next one!
