I'm a complete amateur and a sucker for aesthetics. I have a pair of Wayne's crossovers and waveguides in hand.

I hope to have some prototype MDF cabinets complete by end of year. Will share results once I get there.

Squeezed in a couple hours of work over the Thanksgiving holiday.

JBLs arrive later this week. Then, I'll complete the cutouts for the driver and port.

DE250 is backordered until 12/15. Confused But, still hoping to have some measurements by end of year.

All glued up!

Will be diving in to REW for the first time this week. Hoping the frequency response gods are looking fondly on me and everything measures as desired.

The DE250 is still backordered. Hoping it arrives mid Jan when I get back from an upcoming trip.

Had a lot of inspiration/design tweaks while building out this prototype cabinet. And, of course, made a few mistakes that I'll be able to avoid in the final build.

I thought I was excited before, but it's starting to feel real and I can't wait to get these hooked up and in their final resting place.

The DE250's got pushed back again. Parts Express is now estimating March. Sad

I picked up some PSD2002's in a panic. They were already out of stock at PE. I'd imagine they'll be backordered everywhere soon as well.

The 2002s are schedule to arrive tomorrow. Very Happy

Short video if anyone is interested. Nothing fancy, recorded on an iPhone. YouTube link.

I'm by no means an audiophile, but sounds pretty damn good to my ears.
