no doubt there'll be more speakers than time to get to them all, but let me volunteer for Jeff - yup these for sure

The polyfil is actually being held up with some white "tulle" from the fabric store.

Both dogs make a hasty retreat when the music starts.

This combination sounds pretty good, but there will definitely be some experimentation down the road. I have material to raise the speakers up a few inches, so that's next on the list.

So, a big thanks goes out to Chrisb for cutting all the material, which is a LOT of work, even for a fairly straight forward design. Also, for letting me help with the assembly. These boxes went together very quickly. On my own, they would have taken much more time to assemble.

Also, thanks to Dave for providing the drivers and the drawing, Scott for the box design, and of course Mark for designing and producing such a lovely driver.

I've got the pedestal bases finished, which raise the S-Pensils up approx. 4 inches. With the rear panels screwed on securely, imaging has definitely improved.

Jeff,

IIRC Chris mentioned/suggested a listening session with the Super Pensil 12Ps at Dave's place some time - did that happen?

Not yet. Vhris & i stretched our endurance yesterday with a FEST clean up session. We'll have a new venue for whatever big boxes Cal brings.

Yes, the ones with the pretty blue cones.

I'm good for a few hours as long as it's not too hot. I can no longer work outside in the mid-day sun.
