I do have a flat pack  ( a  couple actually)  and  8 brand new  Lgk drivers .  We had planned to build out a pair but  things have gotten busy and  just  don't  other projects are  taking up   "play time".
Danny will have all the network parts you'd need.

Let me know if interested and I'll double ched,  I'd have to go back and see what the  actual cost was on Lgk drivers. they are all sitting in  the original boxes aside from one that   we test mounted in the   prototype  baffles.

A brief update - first few color coats are down. I really like this color selection.  I think the black drivers will look great against this grey.

A had a quick conversation with Danny R regarding my idea to deepen the standard H-frame by about 3” so the Wedgies wouldn’t overhang the back, and I figured I’d share in case others could benefit from it.  He said it would likely reduce the ability to reach the upper crossover point to the wedgies, and recommended I stick with the typical H-frame design.  So I’ll live with a little overhang in the rear. No big deal.

Looking good  Dan,  I think you are right  with regards to the  black drivers on the grey  cabs.. will lok sharp :)
Just  build your h-frames with   overhanging tops/bases like  our  standard cnc  flat packs use, the  wedgies fit right on them  .

Jay - I didn’t realize that!  Would you mind sharing the measurement of the top, both length and width? Thanks!

19x17"  gives  1.5"  overhang all the way around ... you  can adjust  to suit  your  personal requirements.
We  just  a couple pairs with a  custom sized top for a customer, he wanted a bit different  overhang....

note though,   that  measurement is with  1.5"  side panels  and a  1"  baffle  which we use in all our sub   kits.  If you  are only using  a .75" baffle make them 19 x 16.75

This is great news!  I’ll hit you up for a flat pack.  Thanks for the heads up.

Another brief update - I started making the crossover boards today.  LOTS of sanding.  As you can see from the pics, I’m using some leopardwood.  These boards will get lots of urethane after the glue dries.  The urethane should really make the grain pop.

Looking forward to seing that   wood with a  finish on it  :thumb:

The last  couple pairs of  Hframes we sent out, they guy  also had us do the tops/bases out of 1" Medex so that the  thickness matched the  exposed  side panel  face  (side panels are 1.5"  but   each has a  .5"  rabbet  / recess for  an optional grill frame.
There is some  lead time needed on these so  please keep that in mind  if you  want  some down the road

I got one crossover board done.  If anyone sees any glaring issues, please let me know.  One question I had was regarding the negative line.  I ran one continuous run, and just made both connections (woofer and tweeter) at the same point.  So the tweeter’s .27 inductor is connected to the woofer’s 5ohm resister, and the tweeter’s positive and the woofer’s negative are all connected at on junction.  Is this okay?

In other news, I got the flat packs ordered for the subwoofer bases.  Thanks, Jay!!!!  And thank you for tolerating my customizations.  :thumb:

No worries  ,  looks like  we  have   the sheets  in stock so  hopefully we can get these cut  and out  to you relatively  soon.

Danny - Thank you for checking! 

Jay - Great news!!!  Thanks!

Well, the second crossover sure went together a lot faster.  One of the best tips I got from Danny’s “Crossovers 101” sticky thread is to twist up the first crossover and then slide the board under; but for the second board, mount the components first to mimic the first board, THEN make your connections.  Making the connections is slightly more difficult this way, but it ensures your boards will be identical copies of one another.  Good for the OCD...
