Sorry, I assumed you did more than just chopping in your shop, but perhaps it does consist of just an axe and a hungry woodchuck.

You artists can be funny like that... ;\)

By the way, who's Joyce to decide what's funny? I laugh at her attempt to be funny!

Magenta?!?! The line is clearly Maginot!

Mark, first I laughed. Then, I thought, that's a pretty big cabinet for the price. Then, I thought, you could replace the woofer - or all the drivers - if it really sounded bad. Or maybe even put a new, more powerful amp in it. Or just engineer your own powered monitor from the ground up! That's the ticket!

Or maybe some wireless over-the-ear headphones. Hearing protection and tunes all in one.

I just love Mark's little projects.

Refoam em! And take pictures!

I can't seem to find the link right now, but most drivers are measured according to the basket size and it has very little to do with the actual cone size, otherwise Axiom's 5.25 would a about a 3" driver.
