I was set on buying a pair of these kits until work got in the way of funds. Then, upon hearing about Jeff Bagby’s untimely passing impulsively purchased the Helix dome MTM kit. Still assembling them but I still have the Vortex in mind for future use.

You may be able to reduce that hump in the upper bass by tuning the cabs lower. 65hz is pretty high. 40-45 hz might flatten things out.

That's a good idea - next time I place a Parts Express order I'll grab a new set of ports and try it out.

Anyway, I finished my build over the weekend. Very happy with how these came out overall. They sound great.

Any updates on folks re: their experiences with these? I'm very close to ordering the Vortex-15's.

Thanks,
Jim
