Mark,

You have enough posts you should be able to PM Jay, Captainhemo, about the costs.

You will be amazed at the combo of your Maggies and these subs. Have fun.

This is great news for me too. I'm moving to Vancouver Washington around the end of December or early January, so may be able to avoid needing you to ship me a pair, which won't be cheap. Talk to you later Jay---Eric.

sorry to bring up this old post but i see you may live close to me and i had questions about the sound these produce, i am 100% down to get and make these but have no idea what they sound like. i live in orchards

Guys,
for the triple stack when you are daisy chaining speaker terminals on the dc side, are you twisting speaker cables ends together, soldering, or just inserting them side by side in each terminal . The wires  provided by GR research are solid copper and appear to be difficult to twist together. If twisted will the twisted pair fit into the terminal opening?

They'll twist well and hold well. Put something on them and give them a tight twist then just slide them into the binding posts.

You  can  slip  them in the quick connects side by  side,works fine.  Just make sure you  give thjem a little "tug" to be sure they are biting.
Have also  soldered  them in the past....  hard to get   the  2 16awg solid  wires to sit nice onthe smallish tabs  though.  If you're going to solder,  do it  pre-no rez  ,  much easier.

hi guys  i just got my set of flat packs from jay via ups. all i can say i was amazed  by his packing job first. than when i took them all out the quality of workmanship is top notch as is the material . putting the first one together was a peace of cake and it went together completely square with 5 clamps . thanks jay for this great product you and danny have a great thing going here .

Glad they are  going together  well for  you.  We dry fit everything and typically give everything   a light sanding after final baffle machining (roundovers / wiring holes  depending on driver orientation)  and any other  routing extras are done. 
Feel free to post some pictures when you  all done if you like.

Also,  thank you for the feedback always appreciate it.
And finally,   packing  credit  goes to    Don (endo2112), he's the master  packer that makes these things pretty much  bomb proof

hi guys got my subs up and running and couldn't be happier with them . thanks danny and jay for your great products and workmanship as they wouldn't have come out as nice as they did without your engineering . a few pics of them i still need to dial them in better and play with placement . my room is tough and getting smaller every day lol.

Awesome!!!  I like how you have them connected to the amps. Are the wheels temporary?

 ya there the nutrik connectors danny recommends they work well and are well made .
yes the castors are temp for now as i have to move speakers back when I'm not listening to them . in another year or so when i retire and move i will have a room set up as my man cave and put spikes on the subs I'm thinking  there just too dam heavy to lift them now to slide out of the way .

You might consider Herbie's Gliders. They would slide easily on your wood floors while providing a good foundation for the subs. I'm using them on my triple subs and they work great.

Yep.

I use Auralex Acoustics SubDude-II Subwoofer Acoustic Isolation Platforms underneath my OB subs. Makes them easy to slide on my wood floor. I also screwed metal handles onto my amp boxes to make them easier to carry.

is there i issue with using castors i picked the ones with the softest wheels so they could aid in dampening ? kicking a few ideas around my head to use both possibly retractable spikes ?

With either wheels or spikes or Herbies or whatever, the goal is to stabilize the speakers so they don't vibrate while playing. A simple test is to listen with wheels on, then wheels off. Crank up the volume. If there's no audible difference, put the wheels back on.
