    Excellent attention to detail. Can't wait to see finished product.

    For the glue ups, do you just use a wet rag to wipe off the glue while it's still wet? Or do you chip it off after it dries?

    I can see the light at the end of the trunnel for this project. Mt bluetooth recievers and terminal cups arrived and I made a little more headway on the Voxels. If I had double the clamps I own I would be further along!

    My set up for laying out the curves I cut at the bottom of the enclosures.


    For the sake of uniformity, I used double sided tape along with masking tape to pair up the front and rear baffles for the bandsaw cut and spindle sander work.


    Glueing up.


    The port tube.


    Woofer holes are cut and chamfered.

    The Sprites are completed and I have begun the last push to get the Voxel Subwoofers ready for christmas. I had a productive weekend getting all pieces cut to size. I still need to cut the driver cutouts and then assemble. Ill have a pretty good bit of router work to do. I am somehow missing a couple terminal cups so I ordered those as well as the parts to try the Sprite filter in the PC speaker. I also decided to add bluetooth recievers to the ensemble. All on the way!

    Glueing up the Voxels. The dado for the bottom panel makes this much easier.


    Bottom panel is MDF.


    The finished box joints look very nice, but glue ups can be messy. Theres a very fine line between having to loose a fit and having to hammer them together. Most of mine hammer together. A thousanth of an inch adjustment can be a huge difference.


    I decided to put the terminal cups on the bottom under the skirt that will allow me to incorperate feet to the cabinet.


    There they are, Five of them with the joints cleaned up and ready for the router table. Ill need to progress a little each day in order to get them done on time.

    The walnut is beautiful. I can't believe what a difference a coat of Danish oil makes!

    These are beautiful. I love the look of the finger joints and the walnut. Always been a big fan of walnut.

    I've just about got the Sprites finished up. All I need to do is to glue in some small blocks to screw the back panel to. At this point, I have one pair clamped shut and connected to a lepai amp. The bass coming from them is mind boggling. This shouldn't be possible. Mr. Carmody has brewed up something special here.

    Here are the cabinets lined up awaiting the roundover bit.


    Roundovers completed.






    The rear of the cabinet is also rounded over.


    The port exit has a slight roundover also.




    The danish oil applied and waiting for it to soak in.


    The Sprite filters ready for installation.


    Pig tails soldered to the NS3's.


    Ready to close the cabinet.

    Sunday's progress.


    I started the day at the router table using the flush trim bit to trim the baffle flush with the cabinets.


    Then it was on to the back panels. Here, Im drilling a hole to glue the vent tube into. I cut small blocks.....then mount blocks to inside of rear panel. Ill use a flush cut bit and roundover to finish this off from the outside.




    I cut the tubes 1/2" short to allow for the 1/2" thickness of the rear panel.



    Rear panels drilled for terminal cups and a starter hole for flush cut bit where the port will be.



    I radiused the corners at the bandsaw and belt sander.


    Then glued the ports to the inside of the rear panel.



    I'm hoping to get the cabinets sanded tomorrow and get my roundovers done on the front and rear of the cabinets.

    Progresssing on the Sprites!

    I got a little work done on the Sprite cabinets I am building yesterday. Im hoping to get them all out of the clamps tomorrow and construct the rear panels.

    Here is a front baffle.....ready for glue up.


    I used a rabbeting bit to make a pocket for the speaker terminals. A smarter approach than what I did on the PC cabinets.


    Rabbeting bit.....



    I am also using a rabbet on the rear of the enclosure to flush mount the rear panel.


    Another view.


    And lastly, the baffle glued and clamped in place. The cold weather has me keeping these in clamps til tomorrow.

    Impressive, as always.

    Would love to see these in person. You should try to make it to some diy events in the midwest.
