Hi all it’s been a while since I’ve posted any updates, but I’ve received the kit parts now
so I should have a good run from now on.
Here’s a few pix of my latest progress, I’ve drilled the 7/16 holes for the tube connectors and started laying out the parts on the board for the crossover.

Looking good!
(Remember to hide the parts values of the crossovers before posting, thanks!)

Crossovers and polyfill fitted to the cabinets, I used some spray on contact adhesive to help hold the polyfill to the sides

I have a question for anyone that has some knowledge on this kit.
The plans for this kit show the ports to be 3 1/2 inches long, but the ports supplied in the kit are over 4 1/2 inches long, I was wondering if I need to cut these down?

Danny says it's not necessary to cut them.
The longer tubes allow them to play lower, and shortening them will reduce that extension a little bit.

Thanks for the information, do you know Danny personally.

Hobbs works for Danny.  If you call up GR Research you will probably talk to Hobbs :thumb:

Danny has had a bit of a sore throat the last few days, so I've been manning the phones almost exclusively.
But if he's in the shop, he usually answers, if not then there's an 80% chance it'll be me. :P

I used a 50mm Forstner bit to drill out the port holes, the port tube fit perfectly

First cut made for the tweeter after doing some test cuts to adjust the diameter and depth of the cut

Looks nice. If you can, round off the corners.
