2nd.

Just one question though... Wont the resistors you got in there get REALLY HOT? Because I had a pair for my DIY strobe light and they get so hot, I had to raise it from the PCB so it all wouldn't catch on fire.

BTW. LOL at your MP3 beside the Sub.

Nope, because I'm feeding so little current through these that it wouldn't matter. Both the caps and the resistors were designed for high heat environments, so I'm all good.

No, not lacquer.....

This is really a tiny update, as I've just finished putting the second coat of tung oil on my sample piece, and boy is it smooth! I'm hoping after several more coats the piece will reach a semi-gloss finish, much better than polyurethane in my opinion. This coat was put on using 320 wet/dry paper and finished up with a rubbing using old t-shirts.




Oooh reflective.....

woah looking good! How come I've never seen this thread before?

Subscribed! How easy do you think it would be for me to make some speakers? This seems like a very fun project!

I don't know...I'm not a shrink. In fact I make a horrible one, as I'm always telling people to go die in a hole.
