They're 18" sealed. Ported would have been wayyy too big. They need like 12 cuft or more, I forget the exact number, to perform even remotely ok ported.
Ah, it must have been when you were considering the ported!
I just remembered thinking "12 cuft?! That specification belongs to a refrigerator!"

Like the wood work .. Do you have a biscuit joiner ?? Best tool I have in my shop .. Quick and strong joints and less waste … Love the open back for proper air flow …

Decided to run a little test with the War of the Worlds scene. At the main LP this is what I got at 0.0 on the Marantz

Oh wow, sorry I never say this. Yes, I have one. I don't use it as much as I thought I would when I bought it. I just find that there's too much play to really lock things into place when using it. I've been eyeing a festool domino because I think that would accomplish my goals better. who knows.

I have a kreg jig and love it, fairly easy to line up and a lot more versatile than I though it would be. Very strong joints.

Had a biscuit joiner but seemed harder and harder to find biscuits that fit well, thickness or width, and had a lot of play when clamping. Could have user error as well lol

You mean pocket hole joints? I use those as well in cabinets I make. The domino makes joinery a breeze when building large cabinets because the panels fit right together, and then the screws almost eliminate the need for clamps!

It has been awhile, but I think I used to microwave my biscuits for about 30 seconds at a time this will drive/steam out the moisture and shrink the biscuit if they are too swollen to fit in the slot.
If you microwave them for too long and the moisture is out of them, you run the risk of catching them on fire.
This come from some who lives in the humid southeast US, so swollen biscuits may not be a thing if you live in the desert!

I'm not aware of a Kreg jig for biscuits.
AFAIK, Kreg is all about screwing!
It is not a hidden joinery like biscuits or the quasi-tenons of festool (unless you consider plugging the sunken screw holes "hidden")!

Using the Domino tenons for cabinetry allows me to fit and glue all the panels together with ease. But I do route a channel in all of the sides for the bottom to fit in to, so a clamp still gets used to keep the sides pinched.

Then the back hides all of the screws used on the side panels - which means I only used one clamp instead of four!

With that new Outlaw amp, the HT room is back at full power. I gave a buddy of mine a demo and he was blown away. Feels good to have the room back rocking and rolling. Now if only I could talk the woman into letting me get a bigger TV for that room.............................
