Very cool, let us know how it goes. You may need to adjust some crossover values a little, if you find it doesn't suit your room just right.

John should be at Lone Star Audio Fest at the moment. Probably enjoying bourbon and big Obees at this very moment. We'll ask him how it went when he gets home.

Would love to join LSAF.
Don't know what to adjust yet, still need some break-in time. I surely would need help later.
Thanks

Just spoke to John on the phone. He says LSAF went very well and that his Manzanita room was packed full of people for the whole show. Everyone seemed to love the speakers and the ample, clean bass.

These are easy to DIY - a great project that you can really sink your teeth into.

I agree to Pano. It's easy to make n sounds pretty good that my wife hates it a lot for the reason I have been listening to this almost a day. I just can't stop my wife would double hate the Super Ultra.

Pano: Hope you can bring the latest - with the 2 15" and the SEAS out to BAF this year!
Or maybe we'll just make one here for you to demo!

Hmmm...... sounds like a plan! I do need to get out to BAF at least once. Put those airline miles to work.

Albert. LOL, that's very funny.

I finally built the Ultra this past weekend after having all the parts for well over a year - man I'm slow

I was a bit disappointed with the GRS 15's drivers as the frames were bent/distorted. The packaging of the GRS's was poor to non-existent. I waited too long before I did a thorough inspection of the speakers. Parts Express wouldn't let me return them for an exchange - which was expected. I did send them pictures of the problem though.

Anyway, I mounted the GRS's and most of the frame distortion went away. I listened to these for a few hours and they sound fantastic. Nice solid bass and I love these little Vifa full rangers. Thanks to John and Pano for all their hard work.

Cool! Happy to hear that you got it finished. Bummer about the woofers. I had that happen to me shipping a pair of Selenium 15s back from Hawaii. One was bent so badly it was ruined. I didn't notice until months later. Too late to claim the insurance.

Anyway. Glad you are up and running. Keep us up to date on the project.

Sorry if I missed them in this long thread, but are there any xover/build details for the ultra and ultra plus?
