...A final note, this kit seems to be a re-release originally from 1992. While I do not have a copy of the original 1992 release, I suspect not much has changed from the original.




Todd, this kit goes gack even farther than 1992 - I remember building these subs as a kid back in the early 1970s!

LOL...I won't disagree with you on that Tim. Only reference I found was from 92! There is room for improvement as with most everything, but like I said, not bad kits for a little fun...and for under & bucks worth the effort!
