  I was going to use AE Dipole woofers for this build but, I've changed my mind. Servo Sub kit is the surefire way to go IMO. I need help deciding which kit. I'm thinking kit #4. I'll need a pair of boxes Jay.

For a two driver cabinet that would be the one. Remember, you will need one kit for each H frame.

Kit 4  would be my choice  as well.  You could go with  kit 3  but I like the  flexability of the  A370PEQ.
Once  you  decide for sure, letme know  and we can  package  you up a  pair of amp boxes  for  either the  A370's or the  HX300's
I'd recommend you grab  4  sheets of no rez... you  won't use the full 4th sheet but  you'll be  shy  with only  3

 I sent DR a pm. Hope he's the go-to man for this. Anyway, all is good. I'm now thinking epoxy base under paint is a nice way to finish these.

And that's taken care of, thanks. 127/slo cure ordered with some micro balloons.

Just received my OB-3s with amp boxes from Jay. Just a shout out for his help and craftsmanship.  Packaging was top notch as well. If you had any doubts about ordering these, fear not! Waiting on a pair of NXOticas now. Happy Holidays peeps

Nice and square. Foolproof. Used Titebond III.

Glad to see them  coming  together  man   :thumb:
Might  be  a touch of  sanding   etc   where the     braces  meet the  side panels but  should be   minimal. 
Keep us posted on  your  progress    ,  love  seeing  all the  different  finished  results 

And  if you  need any  guidance   with regards to wiring. I set this thread up  a while back.     Did up drawings  for  most  confiigs... find  what matches  your cabs  and there will be  a  diagram and  a written   "follow along" to get  it right.

 :thumb: Grill frames hide all sorts of sins. These will be epoxied & finished with automotive type paint. Weather here is probably not conducive to attempt a finished job on these unless I do this indoors. Thanks for the link.

 Just a thought. What type of fasteners are favored for attaching the speakers?

Yeah they do.....
If the screws   are not  found in the  box,   check around  the  magnet  of the  woofer....   I've  found them in a  few  strange  places   LOL   this  was mostly on   earlier    drivers  I   got  from danny,  the   latter  ones  have  all been    sitting  inthe  little bag   just  as they  should  be .

You can. They will play and you can burn them in a bit that way. They just won't have the control.
