El Camino "Deuce"
03/13/19 at 17:57:46
 
As usual it takes me forever to get my projects done but finally finished these. I like to thank Bob for the internal parts and designing these. They are only 99% finished and still in the workshop. I have to make the x-over box cover plate for them to be 100% finished. So here are some pictures.

I would also like to thank Randy for the recommendation on the finish he uses. This stuff works great, easy to apply and don't have to worry about runs or dust. This stuff is nice.

Too bad there won't be any bass!   Hahaha just kidding.  You'll need spikes for these, and probably wouldn't be a half bad idea to install a seatbelt  as well as a headrest on your listening chair.

Thanks Donnie.

Steve, the bass hits pretty good already. Can't wait to get them in the room. I do have spikes for these. The feet I bought long ago came with threaded rubber feet and brass spike feet. The rubber feet are on them for now because of the concrete floor. I have carpet in the room so the spikes will be put on when I get them in place. I will see what I can do about the seat belt and the headrest.  ;D

I was thinking of Elizabeth Cook singing "El Camino" myself.
