    Cool Project. Really like the PVC solution for the rear of the cab. Would imagine ripping it could be a little nerve racking. Did you clamp something to the PVC to it to keep it from rotating during the cut?

    One thing I should mention is that I know back in the day the Founteks had a run of tweeters with reversed polarity, these were purchased around a year ago and the polarity was correct as marked, so corresponding with others more recent findings that if you buy neo1.0s now you no longer have to worry about it.

    Closer shot of baffle chamfer. I love the look of unfinished wood, wish there was a way to keep it looking dry and freshly cut and sanded like this forever. Also a shot of the sanded body. This is all I could find for build pics. I see some looked to have a date back to 2014..told you I work slow!

    Baffle pics. The strips that form the double layer to accommodate the chamfer were opened up where they partly block the woofer hole. The pvc mid chamber worked good. I used a drill rasp to chamfer the back of the driver hole. It would be so much faster to route it ahead of time, but this wasn't too bad.

    The body panels adhered and pvc back piece on. I just used joint compound to fill gaps knowing I would not have a high def finish on the body. I sealed the body with poly and then primed it. The actual finish is Rustoleum spray on bedliner. The last pic is laying out where the chamfers were going to be cut on the baffle. I ended up with a lot of lines since I cut them with a skil saw and guide, so I had to determine where the cut would be and where the guide had to be clamped on. I lucked out and that actually worked pretty good.

    Here we go, size was too big. More bracing was added than what is pictured here, but this is the basic frame. The back was too tight of a curve to wrap with the Masonite, so I ripped a piece of pvc on a table saw and used that for the rear curve.

    I'm trying to upload some build pics but keep getting an error message (invalid file, but they are jpeg and open fine on the computer), so it might be a bit. I'll apologize head of time for the poor quality of the pics when they do show up.

    Thanks guys! I have to credit the 1/6th octave smoothing for the graph though! :D

    I'm with the wife, original was nice, but gloss black is Awesome! Great design, nice build and I'm jealous of the FR graph (darn flat)! Fantastic man!

    Nice! Not to disagree with the Mrs.'s, the original baffles looked pretty good also. Looking forward to the build pics.
