No, your eyes are fine, this is a same-day update...One Xover done...several sticks of hot glue and a couple zip ties later. Will start on second one tonight.

I know eh? I tried the Xovers tonight, and they worked fine. My only concern is the volume. It was way lower than I had expected it to be...is it because the woofer and tweeter are not enclosed? Perhaps they weren't designed to be used in an open baffle configuration?

That's quite a compact design so I wouldn't expect too much volume. Once in the enclosure you'll notice the low end increases the most but the baffle will provide 1/2 space loading from a certain frequency up and you'll get gains here too.

So short answer is yes it will be louder with more bass.

UPDATE!!!!

April 10, 2008
-Finally finished both Xovers, they are guaranteed no to fall off...REMINDER TO PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BUILD XOVERS, DO NOT DO WHAT I DID AND ROUTE THE WIRES ABOVE EVERYTHING...IT WAS A PAIN IN THE *** TO SOLDER AND GLUE TOGETHER. MOUNTING IT USING THE TYPICAL PCB MOUNTING METHOD (IE. DRILLING HOLES LIKE A PERFBOARD) IS MUCH, MUCH EASIER. Some pics, along with my naked speakers & tweeters.

Is that a pair of Technics SBM300 I spy there? Quite rare these days.

Possible...though it says Panasonic...Technics is a panasonic brand right? I've had the mini system (yes, there's a deck, cd player, amp, & tuner, just not in the picture) for quite some time now, at least 10 years.

Default Zaph, Port placement

As per title, what/where is the ideal port placement?

Another update! (God, don't you just love them?)
April 11, 2008
-One enclosure done, and mocked-up with baffle & Xover as reference; the other one will be completed on Tuesday, as I don't have class until then. Oh, and a small change in plans...originally I was aiming for varnish, but after trying it out on a scrap piece, I can safely say that it looks like crap. So, no varnish, but staining is the next option. Going to pick up some of this Golden Oak stuff next time I go to Home Depot, as well as my carpet padding.

I'd say it turned out pretty nice, all the mitres came out perfectly, everything is square...all that's left is to route the roundover/chamfers and drill out the holes.

One more thing, is it OK to do a chamfer on the front of the cab., or should I stick with a roundover?
