ROFL!

..dude...build it...and they will come.

I'll just take a dollar whenever you feel like it. I'm not picky

he must have felt guilty about that - he does give away more billions than anyone we could name here - and I wouldn't be surprised if he has a sense of humor about that - in a very Sheldon Cooper sorta way

Bob

To inject a serious note - I definitely found the same thing. Even without the extra ring on a prototype pair of Alpair10.2, I laminated up to 24mm for suprabaffles on the MLTLs. I guess just part of the price we pay for Mark's wonderful drivers - still way easier to install neatly than Fountek FR88EX .

He hasn't made much off me, I can't remember the last time I had a serious crash. Wish I could say that for some other software on my comp.

Same here. Especially the Windows 7 platform is very stable.

Wow it's a TOTALLY different size than the originals. Much shorter, a little thinner and a decent amount deeper. The biggest visual is the height. Curious why there was such a drastic departure from the original? Im specifically referring to the Supers.
