Greets!

Then why didn't you tell us what you really wanted to know? Anyway, I imagine there's some inferior bits available, but even if I knew a supplier I wouldn't recommend them since I've seen what a broken bit can do to the human body (fortunately not mine). BTW, what would the roller ride on?

The problem is yes that it would have to be long and because of its length more unstable.

There is a vent piece and the bottom of the enclosure. On my enclosure for my wr125s I used a flush trip bit again using the vent piece and the bottom of the enclosure as guides and it turned out very well (I think) (the picture earlier). The endges are a little bit rounded, but all the lines are perfectly staight and I think they look really good. by the way, the sides of the enclosure are the other guides for the bearings.

Hi... and compared to a more typical sealed box how do you find your TL design changes the sound of this driver?

Is the bass looser... fuller... or just different?

Peace,
Godzilla

PS... looks like a cool design btw. I hope you sell all 200!
