Thanks, I managed to remove an A7.3 from the FH3 and do a test fitting. Does look like it'd benefit from a chamfered rear edge. Will do this in the morning...

Going to order some copper coloured 7.3s for these enclosures

Default Very Nearly Done

Currently have a lot of projects underway and all nearing completion, with final details taking the most amount of time.

Had the mMarS sat on one side for a few weeks waiting the arrival of the A7.3 drivers. These arrived just over a week ago and gluing began mid week. The driver rear braces are trimmed, requiring a slip of paper for nice fit... Internally, used needled cotton felt.

Initial level sanding with 60 & 80 grit and routed the round-over [R=14mm], then sanded down with 80, 180 & 240 grit... applied some acrylic sanding sealer, sanded again with 180, 240 & fine wire wool. Will get some furniture wax to finish off...

B/B and Walnut veneer were leftovers from other builds. Both rears were slightly proud and needed ~1mm removed to level them [not so pretty looking]. Overall very happy & am pleased that my building is improving.

Should have these playing in the not to distant future

Big Thanks
