But nice and minimal looking, I like that. Though not if they fall over!

Fortunately no kids or pets in my house so I'm fairly confident in them, for now at least!

Do you have thread locker or a lock nut on the woofer magnet damping pad?

I don't, but that might not be a terrible idea. The threaded rod is under some good pressure, though, and the friction between the pad and the back of the magnet will make it tend to not want to rotate. If you did use thread locker, I'd make it the 'blue' type so you don't lock yourself out of getting the threads free again down the road.

Most of the old Japanese speakers I've dismantled had something to keep the fasteners from loosening. And yes on the blue, the red is serious about the locking.

Over the weekend I cranked out two 48"x30" panels using Roxul Safe n' Sound. WAF is dropping fast! I might cut the height in half and then mount them on the wall.

I'm surprised by the difference these made - the imaging is insanely precise and being able to pinpoint exactly where toms are in space, as they pan from one side to the other, is quite gratifying.

Also, MiniDSP is on the way!

Great photo there!
What MiniDSP are you getting? (if it's the 2x4HD, I can send you or post a linear phase FIR eq and/or a Linkwitz transform file for it)

Thanks all! There are a few wrinkles, but I'm going to live with them until I feel like pulling staples

I got the 2x4HD and additional software package. If you could send/post both that would be great! I plan to learn how to use rePhase, but it would be helpful to have a starting place, and also a file to compare results against. Thanks Bill!
