Default Mmmm

Yes, I had them and they did not work out of the box so I send them back. They send (part of) my money back as they had no solution that could satisfy me at that moment.

I am still waiting for someone posting a review of the G33D, if one has it working and is satisfied with it, I might re-order.

Ahhh, I have been rather lazy with them of late haha, They have been something I just work on every now and then when I get bored lol, But an end is drawing near, I hope haha.

The have had a coat of car sound deadening paint on the inside then some "Super Sound deadener" put in them, Which is a bitumen like dynamat stuff with a 4mm foam on top.

One needs the deadener in it and the other is just about ready to screw together , Might work on them today lol.

Anyone progress pics!

Black sticky icky paint haha, works well and is cheap!

Baysnsf, Not good to hear about the G33D

Im a bit worried about the lack of reviews, or what software they come with, I really want a 3 channel amp with some DSP in it for Xovers and EQ function, Not much out there is an all in one chassis, and buying separate items is much more than I want to spend.

Ahh, nice to see these pictures

As for the amp.
Maybe a bit low power and no casing.

Currently they are in cardboard box's being powered as the mains from a logitech Z4 2.1 system.

I have no amp as yet, going to be connected to an iMac / mac mini, So looking for an amp with DSP preferably.

Hence why the G33D was on the list.

Yeh, Not sure on the MiniAMP kit, 20w may not be enough, I plugged one speaker into my Marantz AV Receiver / amp and it needs full volume to sound decent loud, but thats more in a room than near field environment. But for $60 it might be worth a try.

Spec,

When you plug in both speakers you'll get more + better sound overall.

Once you're done with the second cab, connect and let us now.

Dont you have when you just that little bit short of materials to finish off a job!

I need another tube of suber sound deadener now haha. I, thinking they will be screwed together and sealed bu the end of next week

Then the front face needs to go on, and then veneered. woo woo

On another note been looking at amp options,

I could do a miniDSP with 2 mini amps running BTL for 4x20

Or I could run a miniDSP and a csinewave T400D Aliexpress.com : Buy 4CHANNEL CLASS D +SMPS 400W PRO AUDIO AMPLIFIER MODULE ,4CH OR2CH OR 2.1CH SET EASILY from Reliable 4CHANNEL CLASS D SMPS PROAMPLIFIER MODULE suppliers on Amplifier store
in a shared case, much like the G33D, but with a reliable DSP in there.

Some of the pre made D class boards have been catching my eye, But I prefer the ones with power supplies on the same board, Makes life easy.

The latter option however is expensive $500 worth I think, I was planning a tapped horn box with a 6.5" driver, but maybe I could do the miniAMP setup and find an 8" sub with dual 8ohm coils in a small sealed or BR box.
