Man, what a steal on the Navigator! How does the rig sound with the F2B and SMS instead?
I have a friend here in Boulder who could build you a cut kit. He's a great carpenter and a bass player as well, so he understands the nature of bass cabinets (he was my student and asked me where he could get a good cabinet, which turned into a project where he built a few TL606 cabs, one of which I used on the road with Great American Taxi for a couple years). I've been thinking about adding a 12/6, so maybe we could go in on some parts (the mid drivers are available as pairs from Clair Bros right now for a good price).
The rig sounds great with the SMS! I haven't tried it with both F2B and SMS as that's a bit redundant. The F2B is a little looser in the low end, so the SMS is somewhere in between the F2B and the Eden. My real motivation for getting the Navigator was to get the crossover and some of the other advanced features (the DI out is very good and the enhance knob is a pretty cool effect. The compressor isn't bad). The tone controls are OK, but I'm really a fan of the SMS tonal contours.
