I use kitty litter. Cheap and easy to use.
Funny thing is, my cat uses it too.

I end up using kitty litter and a jar of bb's from walmart. One half of the jar per enclosure was more than enough weight.

I still plan to use a 3/4 roundover on the baffle unless instructed otherwise. Pics to come soon.

The only thing I'd worry about, with kitty litter, is the possibility of it absorbing moisture over the years and expanding. Given that, aquarium sand looks like the safer alternative.

some roundover is better than none. A champher is just as effective.

I just fired these up, all I can say is WOW!!!! I am a believer. I integrated them with a sub and it was truly amazing. Can't believe this 4.5" driver is doing what it is and this is at a zero hours on the driver, can't wait to get some hours on them.

I left the poly fill out of one of them but did not pay attention to which one it was. One speaker defiantly sounds fuller than the other, I will know which one it is when I disassemble them for finishing. I just have to install the bases I made with spikes and then can start finishing. Hope to have some pics in a couple of days.

Thank you for the FONKEN!!!! Now I know I am going to want to build something with the bigger drivers .

The bigger drivers won't necessarily sound better... i have ordered drivers to start R&D on an uberFonken thou.

Both the FX120 & the F120A have specs that are similar to the FE127. Next i have FX120 coming (F120A still out of reach). I'll have to come up with another name too, either for between the uber & the Fonken, or some name that indicates better than uber.... Bud was quite stoked about the F120A, and Gio about the FX120.
