I still have not got my Jaegers out of the box, though I am about ready to wire up the X-overs.
Have you come up with a price for the actives?

Cheers, Hank in Eugene

Honestly we have not been directing any attention to the crossover. But if there is sufficient interest we could do a limited run of finished crossovers. We would probably need around 5 firm orders to justify the effort. I'll talk to the guys about what it might have to cost.

Five would indeed be a good number.  Doc B's was built on a Smash chassis using a bunch of Smash parts.  Since the Smash has been discontinued, this both increases the flexibility of what we can do but also increases the cost a little bit.

Doc B. and I have spoken about building a small run of these, but there are a couple of upcoming projects that we'd like to pop out first.

Take your time!  I'm currently saving for a major turntable upgrade.  My wallet doesn't need any distractions right now!

 :)Hello,
  Have my Jeagers still in the box ,have time now to build this month .Not to be too pushy as some have already asked before and I know you are all working on other projects.Is there any chance of the active crossovers being available.
 I would love to be one of the first 5 people you need for a secure order.
  Thank you .

I'll talk to Dan about this during the open house and see about building five to spec in the near future.
