    Very nice work Trey. Clean and neat - love the p to p wiring. Looks like a cost no object Xover rebuild - $400 in resistors alone!

    Thank you sir! :)

    It is actually closer to 190uf I believe, they are beside the big inductor!

    Well a 130, 65 and two 34's right? A 130uf must be the size of a coke can!

    I just used two 100uf since the 130 and 65 are in Parallel since they are the same values

    I just looked at the schematic I wonder why Polk used a 65 and 130 wired in parallel? cost effectiveness probably?

    On the stock one, the 130 is poly cap I believe with 20% tolerance... definitely strange

    Very very nice work. looks awesome.

    One thing i couldn't see in my mind. How thick was the plexi and the threaded rod? The reason i ask is i am trying to see in my mind how solid this is and/ or how prone to vibration it may be from the sound.

    Again; looks great, congrats to the owner.

    Thanks man!

    The "plexiglass" is not exactly "plexiglass" it is a material designed for circuit boards and that is very very dense. It is basically the thickness of a super nice circuit board. After all of the components were loaded there are nothing more than a thud! :)

    The itself definitely does not rattle... :)

    Thanks!

    Looks beautiful, top notch professional job. I would definitely be tempted to leave the crossovers outside the box to show them off... but that's a lot of wire to deal with.

    any updates on how the 198 tweeters sound or did you go back to the 194.

    Thank you sir!

    As a professional policy as well as personal I have decided to not do any non-Polk approved modifications anymore...
    With that said, I believe the owner is happy with the overall sound of these! :)
