*NOTE*
i did NOT make the crossover for these monitors because i dont have the extra ~$70 it would cost to make them at this time. as long as you have an EQ on the program you play your music in and can cut 60hz by a few DB it will sound pretty great.

i love it so far, i am blown away at the amount of midbass\bass that they give out for a pair of three inch drivers, the highend is a bit harsh compared to my image dynamics CD2 horns i have in my car, but it sounds like a conventional tweeter would in a car - nothing bad at all, but im sure the crossover fixes this :)

im very VERY happy with them, and for like $60 total i cant be any more happy :)

enjoy.

I've got a pair as my computer speakers (slightly higher Vb than zaph's). The rounding over doesn't really make too much of a difference at such a close distance (at least I couldn't tell the difference).

because i used brad nails and i didnt want to **** up the roundover bit i had if they didnt go in all the way. but they look nice the way they are.

i like them alot :)
