    Thanks! No, not late, this is a leaning project. I didn't think Id get it perfect on the first try. The glue turned out to be a heck of a lot more difficult to work with than I thought. Way on the back burner, I wanted to get my skills up and pick up a pair of Bose 901 III's with dead foam, and get them up to speed. For years, you could get them cheap, but prices climbing like everything else. Still I see a pair here and there in Cragistlist, with bad foam, good otherwise. So, Im not against, tearing out what i did and doing over again.
    The only good solid state amp is a dead solid state amp. Unless it sounds really good, then its OK.

      Both of the places mentioned in Florida in this thread have been pretty easy to talk to, ask questions, etc, when I've needed speaker help.

        I knocked a magnet off the bench one time, and for the life of me couldn't find it. Much later I found it had stuck to the side of my metal tool cart.

          I kind of collect the magnets off of bad speakers I decide to trash. I have this great idea of making them into mega refrigerator magnets one day. One side of one of my tool chests has become a magnet storage space.

            One of my friends has one hung up on his garage wall. Instead of throwing darts, we throw bottle caps.
            "Everything is better with a tube. I have a customer with an all-tube pacemaker. His heartbeat is steady, reassuring and dependable, not like a modern heartbeat. And if it goes wrong he can fix it himself. You can't do that with SMD." - Mick Bailey

              Hey, now that's an idea.
              Hmm, might be fun collecting some bottle caps too.
