Default First Impressions

As I told Dennis Murphy today, I'm going to call these MB-O-WOW instead of MBOW1. I just have the drivers taped in and the port tube won't be inserted until I veneer the cabinets. The terminals aren't installed and the four wires are exiting through the hole for the port. My first impression was that's a lot of bass coming out of that little box. My wife was just walking by paying very little attention to what I was doing and said, "I like the sound of that horn". Then she said "those are really small"...I think I've heard her say something like that before;-)

Anyway, I give a BIG thumbs UP!

You''ll get a lot of (one note) bass from mistuned ports e.g. :

Not to worry, I have the proper ports. I just haven't inserted them yet. I plan to do that when I make the final trim and veneer the cabinets. I just wanted to hear them.
