Tips & Tricks:
Keep it simple but don’t cut corners. Had a thought to use zinc screws i had on hand, but took the time to run out and get the black screws.

Did not want to invest more time and money than these deserved. Spent one hour popping the new 8″ woofers into the cases. Had to get #8 pan head screws at 5/8″ in black at the local hardware store. Plugged into a Yamaha RN303 I was selling and sounded so good they took the speakers too!

About the Designer:
Architect/Fabricator from New England that loves the 2 channel sound he “remembers” from his 1980’s childhood.
