My brother asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I told him my room monitors got trashed during the move.

He sent a pair of Advent 1008’s he had in ‘project’ mode all that was needed was a crossover.

I dropped an email to and they quickly replied with a recommendation.

All the parts in the project (besides the cabinets) were from

A wicked woofer and hefty crossover for sure!

An aluminum soldering iron (is there such a thing?) would have been handy as is was really tough to handle in the pull of the massive woofer magnets.

All the connections inside the box were soldered and made with 18ga wire.

They sound absolutely incredible and no need for a sub woofer running these babies!

Thanks Todd for a nifty birthday gift! (click on photos to enlarge)
