Hi Tony

I have a bad habit of biting of more than I can chew when it comes to projects . At times I've been tempted to sell it all .

Cheers

I can understand that!! My MTM's took 8 years from when I first started seriously thinking about them (basically why I joined up here!) and when they were finally completed! The actual project is still ongoing however, as they are supposed to have subs as well (bit like yorus, only mine is two way on top with woofers on the bottom).

The only jig I made was a circle cutting jig for my router My boxes were simple butt jointed MDF!

Keep at it, it looks like you are getting to the pointy end!! It will be worth it once you can sit back and listen. I listened to mine with the first iteration of the crossover for around a year, and then re-did it. The new one is much better! It dropped the efficiency about 2db but it was worth it for the improvement in sound.

The wife starting to push to get it finished when she heard I had someone interested in the whole project she wasn't to happy .

I've had the room responce measured by a mate so I we have an idea whats needed there as well .I don't want to just dump the speakers in the room and know the rooms holding back the sound with problems .
The reverb very high 0.7 need to get that down ,going to build some broadband traps and looking at diffusors . The rooms losy no real bass reforcement so a couple of tapped horns will be made .I want that 20hz to 20 khz .

Cheers

Mal,
Your wife has been great with your project.
I've been pretty busy with a new job. No time for diy adventures atm. I do want to build a RTP3 maybe next year.
We're just about to head os for a long overdue holiday. Hope to catch up with you again soon. You too Lyle it's been a while since we met at Richards gtg.
