The horns reenforce the bass in a very nice way, much more than you could ever expect from a 4" driver. Stuffing the chamber and throats is very easy to get the bass in balance with the rest of the driver. Empty isn't all that bad, and too much is really obvious.

Congratulations 6L6 on your build!
Photos? Remind me which driver you are using? FF125wk's? Or TB bamboo?

ooh, ooh I just got an idea. If I use the table saw as my foam cutting jig it might save me a few minutes building one. I can use the fence as my stopper and the edge of the mitre gauge channel for my cut.

Sounds like a good technique. You could also use an embedded blade (with proper safety considerations) to hold the blade at 90 degrees. Styrofoam really grabs the blade but tape or glue could also be used. Running this jig against the fence sounds good to me. The same type of blocking can be used to make about six very uniform simultaneous bending cuts in a single stroke.

I love the idea of the tablesaw fence and one of the channels. Combine that with a T-square to help keep the blade straight and you will (hopefully) be unable to do anything but a straight and square cut.

For those without a table saw a simple $3, 3 foot Alu angle from the local hardware attached to a piece of plywood will work with the block.

6L6 - I believe you used the more expensive drivers. Can you give us a more detailed report of the sound you are getting?
