OK, a couple of silly (rather than "stupid") questions.
1) If I get a kit and a flat pack, how tough is the actual assembly? I can solder OK, but my woodworking skills are minimal. (i.e., one step above non-existant)
2) How tough is it to get a decent finish on the flat pack? I'm guessing you can't just stain the MDF and get a nice finish - you either need to put a veneer on (yeah, right), or have access to good paint. What does it look like if you just leave it as a MDF fininsh?
3) REALISTICALLY, how much room behind the speakers? I didn't measure how far at RMAF, but from pictures, it looks like about three feet. Is that enough? Is more better?
4) If I get the flat pack w/o x-over covers, what can I do to provide some protection to them? My cats will be sorely tempted by all those interesting looking things.
