    Well I got a house and I figured if I wanted something loud then this would be it. Started today probably wont be done until next week. Lots of prep work for paint ahead of me and im waiting on my jasper jig from pe to get the front on. I found a Harmon Kardon avr 247 for pretty cheap prolly gonna use that. Anyways pics:

    I forgot the boxes for the mids. This is a big mistake. But i feel a have a good plan for resolving this hopefully my plan works. It might be a little bigger then the enclosure they suggest but i guess i can always put some fill in it. Plus i found a better use for the box anyways:

    I then decided I didn't really want a huge roundover so I just used a 3/8ths roundover on the front and back. The design doesn't call for this but I did so I did it.

    The speakers were then ready for primer. I happen to have a spray booth so I used a shellac based primer and sprayed it out of my hvlp gun.

    And then carpet on the table to keep from scratches:

    Im gonna bust out some 220 grit shortly and sand these guys and then they are ready for the final coat. Still deciding on a color..

    Hey pretty cool, my brother and I build box's too, but they are mostly for cars. He gets pretty crazy with different port sizing and how to tune a box. Its a lot of fun.

    Looks like you had a lot of sanding on that primer to make that mdf look good with paint. I used to work in a sign shop and we made letters outta mdf it took a whole lot of priming and sanding to get a decent finish.

    Haha yeah Im pretty excited I hope they get loudddddd

    Yeah up until this project that was all i built was boxes for cars. Actually the sanding with the primer was easy. It was the sanding that led up to the primer that sucked with all that bondo i slapped on there.
