Re: Any chance for a "Mini Statement II"?

Sorry, I haven't replied. The bottom bass cabinet is reasonably flexible in size as long as you end up with a net of 75-80 liters volume.

Re: New Finalist Build... and some questions.

I made some progress over the last week and now I have more questions. :) In the crossover kit from Meniscus, it looks like there are different plans with disagreeing values for one of the mid resistors. In the plan on Jim's site, it looks like the mid uses a 2.4Ohm and a 3.3Ohm resistor. On the Me...
