    Pretty! I have a couple of Omni12's in-progress.

    How do you find the sound? As loud as you expected? Do the mids spread out well? Did you biamp or use a crossover in the box?

    So can you get any lows out of that? ;)

    That is one cool looking little toy, mang. Best of luck working it out and let us hear all about it after it's been "Unloader-ed" a couple times!

    I just checked out the Omni/Bill Fitzmaurice site. Cool stuff, thanks for the tip!

    I believe you could describe it as one of your "Hi-Fi" type cabs... It seems loud... it rattles the hell out of a drop ceiling at about the same volume as I usually run my 4x10 at, but i haven't played it in a group setting yet. It has an internal 3 way crossover as per Bill Fitzmaurice's design ( www.billfitzmaurice.com ) the only change being the addition of an L-pad to the tweeter... after toying with it for a couple of days, I realize that I could have left it out. I usually don't like tweeters but this one mixes very well with the other speakers, I'm most pleased with the L-Pad wide open... go figure...

    I've got a side project that I'll probably use this cabinet with until I'm sure Combo-zilla is as groovy as I think it is :D
