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!

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