Looking good, dont know how ya can resist mounting those drivers.

What are the silver bits for driver mounting in the pictures? Are they just bolts through the board or are the threaded inserts or something similiar?

What you see is the bolts that are holding the threaded inserts in place. I don't want them to accidentallt falling into the box while preparing for the paintjob. They look like this, but I have no idea what they are called in English...

Sorry, guys, for the lack of updates.
Unfortunately the project has come to a temporary halt.
Mosty because of smell.

It is not a good idea to apply the filler and it is really not a good idea to try to paint them inside your own home, so I've been looking for a place to do it.

First my plan was to do it in a party tent.

Even worse idea.

Well, I just made sure I an use a paintshop the coming weekend, so I'll start painting Saturday afternoon.

Here's the boxes so far:

Very nice. Your time and patience will pay off (I wish I had that much patience).

Repute's xo's are also in the bottom of his enclosures.

I like your base / foot design and how the speaker wire routes.

I would strongly suggest that you add spikes, cones or some type of "lift" to those bases. If you used them flat on carpet or wood floors the bass and highs would not be as "clean" or "detailed" as they are capable of. <ignore if adding after paint>

The factory cabinets Repute had from Madisound were sitting directly on his carpet. I built a base for them to raise them up a bit and isolate them from the ground. They helped a lot, but the fat Thors helped WAY more. I also put a base under the fat Thors too.

But anyway, yours look good so far.

Side Item: The view on your back deck looks wonderful!... Lush green and a little bit of snow..

Lookin' good. Even though its hard, try not to rush the painting process. Mine took 6 coats of primer and 5 coats of color + the clear coats.

Good luck,
Ron

LOL @ the Tent.

It is looking good and I wish you well this weekend.

I agree with Troy. Beautifull view from your deck.
