    Yes, but it'll work the other way round (0 ohms when fully CCW, 40 ohms or even off when fully CW).

    Of course it does, Steve ;)!

    Then the wrong holes (by atisley) might be interpreted as too large in diameter or in the wrong places, I assume?

    How did JBL fasten these tweeters in the 4345's? Did they drill blind holes into the baffle's back and use propel nuts?

    Btw, splendid craftmanship, to both :applaud:!
