J_Rock, Thank you.  I was afraid the wood might rattle loose and fall into a driver so I though some bracing was in order.  The 1X2 mdf between the drivers is slightly press fit before final tightening of the drivers and glued with Gorilla Glue. As anal retentive as I can get sometimes about 'beefing things up' I remained true-to-form; Get this... I stapled a heavy gauge nylon string to one of the pieces of wood (at this point in time it hasn't occurred to me yet the proximity my METAL stapler would be to the magnet) then about four times I tightly wound the string around the base of the wood against the magnet base and stapled the end. Since that still wasn't enough I though I'd be a good idea, since Gorilla Glue expands, to coat the string with it. The wood is pushed up against a small dome in the center of the Dayton. Seems very sturdy, just don't ask to change driver orientation......easily.

60ndown, it's not a very good picture from a perspective standpoint, but that driver assembly was centered. I spent a painful amount of time agonizing the perfection of that very point.

DirtDawg, Thank you. I'm not sure I can get a camera in there any more. I did make a 6" access square (acoustically transparent) but not sure if I'd get a good photo sticking the lens in a dark hole.  ( insert joke here ) and yes, Blather is going for word of the week if Sam has his way... As far as Webshots go, It seems ok to me. Haven't found any ad/spyware yet lurking on my machine. However I occationally get a small window that pops up by the clock telling me about new daily pictures I can view, but you should be able to turn that off. I chose it based on a recommendation of one of my customers at work. He saw my frustration, and said he had used them with no problems. He caught me in a weak moment and while visiting the site I decided to go for it.

Adrian D., Yes part # 295-130. These are what I've got.

Seating will be here Tuesday !

Shakers are wired. Yes with 12 guage Romex about 30', then 14 guage RCA wire (premium?) from Aura to Aura.  Couldn't resist, so I wheeled up my PC chair and....well....you know the end of that story. So now I now have a wooden rocking chair for my temporary PC chair. Roll Eyes
Very cool things these Aura's are.

60, unsure if you mean where I live, (just south of St. Louis MO), or if you mean where I was when she called (working at the Chevrolet dealership).

Yes, these may be the most comfortable seats I've ever sat in. Tried them out last night. WONDERFUL. The only down side; a wine glass isn't real steady in the built in cup holders. Will need to DIY something there.....

Bob

p.s. now I can concentrate on acustics now that I've introduced the extra large bass traps,  LOL..

#1: I'm easily amused.
#2: I'm easily impressed.
#3: I have the same level of exitement over things like this as my 7 year old son does. (he's very impressed with me. That's all I need in life  ;D )
#4: furniture factory made me wait 7 weeks for delivery (raises anticipation level).
#5: It's not just the tv, it's one of the final pieces to complete the room (yea, like it'll ever be 'done'.)
#6: Not a fan of the Simpsons, but Homer's got his attributes.
#8: Don't tell me YOU don't get exited over just another "radio".   Smiley
#9: 140" diag front projection is NOT just a tv.  :-X

You don't fool me Rap..... I see the little kid in there.

DirtDawg, about that webshots membership, still have found no evidence of adware, or spyware. However, my desktop is changing everyday to their "picture of the day", it changes on it's own, can't find webshots setting to turn the S.O.B.  OFF!

Channel 'A' blown on amp  >:(

We'll see how "Music Supply Center" handles warranty claims.
Will have more pics soon. (Have nothing else to do, listening to a system with no amp won't be keeping me busy.... Roll Eyes) Might as well take some pictures.

How exactly are you running your amp when it blew the channel?  We may be able to help avoid another incident in the future...

I did not noticed when it stopped working (that channel was for the shakers, and my butt was not in the seat).  I had wired the shakers, REwired the sub (from bridge to 'B'), made sure everything was working. Then proceded to play with sub location. At one point I had sat down and noticed no vibs in my seat. No LED on the amp for that channel. oops. I do remember one hellova static shock when I touched the gain level....hmmm  ::)  That would do it. Now...let THAT be a lesson to ya. And to think some of us were worried about hot swapping wires. We didn't talk about releasing your 'charge' before you touch your equipment.

LOL, a grounding plate down the side of the equipment cabinet for you to ground yourself before turning any knobs.

How did you have the shakers wired? cause it could be that...

Here's how they are wired.

Ok, in my mind I've installed a ground strap, next run it to house plumbing? Run a led from every component chassis to this strap?
