      • After life getting in the way, weather and moving my listening room around I finally got started on the subs a couple days ago. I am to the point in this project where I am pretty well over MDF dust.

        Little tip: If you can manage it, buy your MDF in full sheets and cut it to manageable sizes with a circular saw and a home made zero clearance track. It will cost you about half of what four handi-panels cost and you will end up with far less scrap. The track was some leftover plywood I had laying around, took about 5 minutes to make and is accurate and repeatable, so a nice tool to have. Plus, circular saws are cheap. I usually cut them about 1/4" large and do a final size cut on the table saw.

        • I dreaded cutting the holes in the braces even though I have done far more in the past. I considered doing this outside (and wished I had). The final eight holes I need to cut will be done outside, as well as the sanding and final edge routing.

          Like with the bookshelves, I cut narrow dados in the top and bottom panels of the subs so the bracing would be spaced right and would mean much easier assembly. It takes a few extra minutes to cut these but it is worth it.

          Did I mention I am over dust? I decided at the start of this project my shop was just going to be caked until it was done. I cannot wait for a relatively windy day when I can just open up the doors and go to town with the leaf blower. My chainsaw sits under my main work bench to give you an idea.

          • Forgot to mention -

            These will be double thick like the bookshelves and in case you missed it, will house two RSS315HFA-8 subs in each, dual opposed.

            I also decided that I will repaint the stand tubes, likely a dark graphite matte, or a matte hammer tone if I can find it. That may not be for a while since those were a bit of a pain and I don't feel like revisiting that yet lol.
