  • The SeaMores

    After several weeks of anticipation (procrastination), I finally got a chance to “make some sawdust” last weekend. My new shop speakers, tentatively dubbed the “SeaMores” will be outfitted with a Morel MW168 6" woofer with a SEAS 22TAF/G tweeter. The enclosures are approximately 10L with a 1-1/2” diameter vent. Following are pictures of my progress so far.
    Special thanks to Dynamo and Chris Roemer for their enclosure and crossover design assistance!

        What is that in the second picture? Is that what you did the recesses with? Looks interesting.

            Thank you! What you're seeing is a rabbeting router bit kit. I just install the bearing/sleeve corresponding to the recess I need and then set the bit depth on the router table and spin the box around the bit. I have a couple of different Japser jigs I use for larger enclosures, but this method works great for smaller boxes. Same with cutting the holes with the swing saw on the drill press.

                Sorry, I've always called it a swing saw. It's actually a General Tool Circle Cutter: https://www.generaltools.com/heavy-duty-circle-cutter

                Works great in a drill press, but don't ever try using one in a hand held drill.

                    The deadly fly cutter. You should have to go through a background check to buy one of those.

                        Originally I was going to spray these with truck bedliner, but found a left over piece of veneer in the shop that I'm using instead. Trouble is, I can't remember for the life of me what species the wood is. If anyone can help me out with identification, I'd greatly appreciate it. This was also the first time I've used the Weldwood "Gel Formula" contact cement. I can give it two thumbs up. It went on easily and bonded perfectly. Like other solvent based cements, the fumes are dangerous, so if you use this stuff make sure you have good ventilation.

                        I was able to get the backs and tops and bottoms cemented on today. I'm using the router table to trim the excess veneer. I'll trim the tops and bottoms tomorrow and them get the sides on.

                        Stay tuned for more pictures!

                          Veneering is complete. Now on to sanding.
