BTW- Nice Bianchi.

The tweeters are pointed up, they're angled a bit and I just figured up was better than down. It actually works quite well because at the angle from my seat they point straight at me.
P.S. I love that bike, I ride it every day.

Oh yeah the push tabs are just something I had laying around from my mobile audio days, they work well enough, I can complain for free.

I'm actually going to start building a pair for my brother in law, and a pair for my father. Everyone is so impressed with the way they sound.

$500 is a steal. I was in the market for a couple of months, but couldn't find anyone to go down to the price I wanted. I had my friend build me up a fixie, but I settled on an old school steel frame. The good thing about knowing bike mechanics, I ended up trading in some bikes that were being thrown away and paid less than the price of the wheels for the whole fixie

Keep up the good work (and the bike)

Default Frugal horn build

If you do't want to build them it seems that there is a price for a pair of frugal horns and a tapped horn sub at this place....6moons industry features: Ring Audio's FGH 1.4

the resemblance is remarkable! Is ring audio somebody on diyaudio?
