that flat pack looks amazing.  I wasn't even interested in the encore x-ls but the flat pack almost makes me want it

Of course, everybody needs some spare gear around. You know...just in case there's a speaker emergency.

Hiya Jon, welcome aboard the (maybe my) obsession train.

I boarded the hifi train many years ago. I never had time to build anything until now, hopefully this is the first project of many.

A question was asked on YouTube about cabinet edge radius. Here's a graphic cross section of corner to illustrate how one could cut as large as 3/4" radius and still have full 3/4" thickness at corner thus maintaining cabinet wall thickness and integrity. A minimum of 3/8" is ideal.  For reference the "Hot Rods" in this thread are 3/8", the "Magmas"  1/2". A 3/4" radius cutter is big honkin' thing. Probably best used in router table.

Y'all might find it hard to believe, but sometimes my mind wanders to things outside of the speaker world.

These for my grandsons.

Indeed. I've been known to say, it's like having an auxiliary brain...

Hi all. I have a dilemma and wondering if you could give me your thoughts on how you'd like to digest a big video, assuming you want to at all!

Without really keeping tabs on it, I've shot about 2.7 hrs. of video on veneering a pair of X-LS cabs. I think I could cut that down by 35-40% with editing and speeding through redundancies of second cabinet, but that's still  a whopper video. I could cut it in two, but would probably need to add a narration track and eliminate my rambling commentary, which I'm not looking forward too, mostly because I've never done it.

I'd appreciate your input. Huge video, do over, 2 or 3 installments? Something else? I'm kinda stumped...

Break it up! Narrate like a pro! Learn a new skill! ;) and use your best David Attenborough impression!

Definitely split it up.  Much easier to watch that way..  could just add necessary notes in the video description under the video
