Thanks again. I can get baltic birch plywood down here so I'll go with that and add a nice veneer.

My wife will be in the states in a couple weeks and can return with at least some of the parts. Typically, how long will it take you fill an order? I'll be ordering the 4Pi kit with all premium drivers and parts.

Later this year I'll follow up with a 3Pi sub order.

Order well in advance. We usually ship kits pretty quickly but I've had trouble keeping up this year. Partly it's because of growth (thanks to everyone here) but partly it's because of the parts availability of some items. Replenishments of some things are taking longer than they used to.

I keep stock of all crossover parts, and many drivers. But I go through a lot of 2226 woofers and DE250 compression drivers. So it seems like every other month, I get backlogged on one or both of those drivers for anywhere from a week to a month. The TD12S often takes several months to fill. Everything else is usually either in stock, or if not, less than a week until the replenishments arrive.

We build the crossovers at time of order. Sometimes I'll have a couple on the shelf, but there are lots of versions and options. For example, a four π crossover for the PSD2002 is different than one for the DE250. Then there are the coil, cap and resistor options. So in most cases, we have to build the crossover at time of order.

All that to say you should expect at least a couple weeks lead time for a four π kit. Right now, we're running about a week for one π, two π, two π tower and three π subwoofer kits. All other kits are taking two to four weeks.
