I think for the price you are paying for the hole shown in the photo

Nah, that hole cost a whopping $.05 I'm sure. Anyway, the price just went up... meaning the test page is gone and it's actually for sale now. The Madisound pre-cut baffles are pretty nice for the router (or time) impaired.

Hi John, looks good and nice kit price too ... it probably doesnt matter much, but it looks like you have switched the "letters" R5 and C4 in your xo schematic

I'm excited about the design, however, I was surprised to notice that you opted not to document a sealed enclosure option. Any particular reason?

ER18's T/S parameters make it inappropriate for a sealed design. Its bass rolloff in a sealed box (regardless of box volume) starts very early.

Default My preliminary ER18RNX 2-way and Zaph's SR71

FYI, my preliminary ER18RNX 2-way design page is now updated with the comparison info of Zaph's design and mine.
