You'll have to tell me what you think of that Yamaha P2500S.

Yes let us know how that amp does.

I was really close to buying one a while back but couldn't find much info on them from DIYers.

I couldn't find much on them either, but the specs are real good, has features built-in that others don't have [high and low filters] and I got it for $330 shipped. I have a Yamaha 6.1 receiver. so it should be a good match.

Man, I HATE daylight savings time. I've lost a few days due to bad weather here and won't make my target of being operational by T-Day...dadgummit! Can't do squat when I get home from work cause it's already ******* DARK...

Re: My Three Sons - two front & one down

I have never attempted a DYI speaker or sub. Do they sell blue prints for those?

You actually can buy blueprints and even pre-built cabinets, but there are plenty tried and proven designs with drawings and cut sheets for free - especially for some of the more popular drivers like the Soundsplinters. The new Shiva and Tempest is out now and there were lots of designs for the old ones. I suspect these will become very popular over the coming months.

Yeah buddy!...when you have wife, kids, job, two cars and a mortgage, there is never enough time in a day... I took today off just so I could cleanup some of my mess around here and do the final hand sand and spot prime. The sanding alone took several hours. I hope to have these puppies primed and painted by this time tomorrow.

Re: My Three Sons - two front & one down

Hey guys, here's my latest update. My cabinets are almost finished!...

Today marks the last day I have to lug these guys outside to work on them. My guess is they are 90+ pounds right now and I'll be adding another 20 by the time they're done. This weekend I prepped, primed and painted. The first shot is a little jig I made to shave the bottoms of the feet perfectly flat with the router before attaching my sheet rubber feet. The rubber feet are 3/8" thick and it was "smoking" good time routing them to conform. This week I'll be installing the 6x6 tiles and mounting the drivers.

Re: My Three Sons - two front & one down

Sweet Warmon !!!!! I like that edge you routed into the corners.... I had thought similarly about doing that same edge to break things up....

Super cool... Love it...

Could I trouble you, in asking how you did that...?

They are totally cool... !!!! Thanks for the Pics....

No problem Warp. I used a 45 degree chamfer bit. For the top, I just let the router base bump against the top. Near the bottom, I stopped the chamfer 2" above the bottom of the front baffle. This gives the illusion of slimmer in the middle and the legs buttressed. I lightly hand sanded the hard edge left above and below the chamfer to something close to a 1/8 roundover. The only rounover bit I used was a 1/4 on the oak only.
