I swapped out the Mills resistors in my Studios with Path Audios and yea, these are the way to go. Between these and the VCAP I have on the tweeter circuit, the speakers seem to have a more holographic soundstage and more resolution than stock.

Glad to hear! Im excited to hear the results once my kit comes in!   :thumb:

Finally time for some lacquer clear coats!  :thumb:
Then some sanding, and more clear coats & more sanding.

So nice Hobbs. I wish I had not bought the Elac Unifi 52 when you said it and put the coin into these. I think I might be letting the Elacs go. I am just time poor atm.

Nice work Hobbs.

LOL Thanks! They're certainly not perfect, but at 3ft, you'd be hard pressed to find any flaws.

I'm currently out of state, but they need a tad more sanding and a couple more fine coats. I'm still trying to figure out how to best use my spray gun, but I think ive just about got it figured out. Some of my first sprays were a bit textured and still are, but ive definitely gotten a better feel for it.

Here's how they looked before I left for my trip.

Will the artist be signing those to acknowledge his work?
