Randy,

And another "Good job" for me.

I know I must have missed something here. I just don't get the "6 of 6" number of boxes. I thought you just need to build a "pair".

Confused as usual  ???

Thanks, Gary

The fit up of those parts looks first rate.  

The stripe of the plywood veneer is very nice too, it should look outstanding once the finish is applied.

Howdy Gary,

The "six of six, etc." was a reference to the number of photos that I posted from the last group that Mike gave me.

I'll bet you could really kill some mice with six Imperials ..... ???

Sorry for the confusion ..... my brain doesn't always work along the same path that everyone else's does ..... Smiley

Best wishes,

Randy

SIX OF SIX!

... to say the least the anticipation is BULGING ...

Randy, I was hoping Gary was right and my set would be ready for pick up next week end.
Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy
Just kidding of course. As envious of the Imperial project as I am, I'm even more envious of having the room for 2 extra refrigerator sized cabinets in my listening room. Mike is certainly doing a fine job. 2 thumbs way up!

Two refrigerators isn't bad either.  One is for Beer, the other is for the makin's of sausage sandwiches.

Well ..... tomorrow is Saturday ..... again ..... Smiley

I will be going to Mike's with cattle prod in hand ..... Embarrassed

We really need to get something done tomorrow, because Mike will be out of town next weekend.

Realistically, the completion date is still probably three weeks or so away, since Mike is somewhat of a fanatic about the staining process ..... something about "75 coats and sanding between each application" ..... ???

The good news is that I ordered the drivers today ..... Cheesy

I'm pretty sure that there will be some new photos to share by Monday.

Everyone have a great weekend,

Randy

Hi Brian,

We will be using the same ones that Zygi used to build Tim's (change_out) SO Imperials.

They are the Dayton ST385-8 15" Series II Woofers.



We really don't need them yet.  Mike has the dimension needed to cut the mounting hole for the drivers ..... but, I will at least be able to look at them and dream of the glorious future soon to come ..... Smiley

Hey Randy,

In that you are going to have the new drivers on hand prior to actually needing them, have you given any thought to maybe doing some sort of breakin on em?

Just a thought.

That thought occurred to me ..... Smiley

I guess I could hook them up to a receiver and run them out of phase while I'm at work.  It will probably take a LONG time to break them in with 1.6 watts per channel ..... ???

This was not the best of weekends .....

I was on my way to Mike's house Saturday and my boss called me on my cell phone to inform me that he could not access one of our file servers from his home through Terminal Services.  I stopped at the office and the server was laying on its back with its tongue hanging out ..... Cry

The repair took a few hours and ruined my trip to Mike's place ..... Sad

I talked to Mike this morning and he said that some good progress was made without me.  I'm not sure what he meant by that ..... Undecided

Unfortunately, he did not take any photos.  He has promised to take a few when he gets home and bring them in tomorrow for posting .....

Murphy is alive and well .....

... everything that can go wrong, will ... ?

Murphy was an optimist, looking through rose colored glasses, living in a fantasy paradise dreamland.

He doesn't even begin to consider all the things that CAN'T go wrong!
