    As I said before, huge Kudos to BradMich for great workmanship on some beautiful speakers. It is very difficulty to get your money back out of something like this - it's like building your...

    A pic of the other side of the board would be helpful, so we can see where everything goes. I'm guessing that filter is there to tame the inductance and make the driver an easier load on whatever...
