    I'll go with Bad A$$!

    I am hoping to see something like a fat 1" round over on that baffle

      Would 1.125" be okay?

            AWESOME!!
            What kind of router bit did you use? I have been looking for a 1" radius bit and am a bit nervous paying $40 for an Amazon Yonico bit vs. $100+ (CAD) for a Freud bit. I wouldn't use them often but wouldn't want a bit to fail on me.

                For the ELI5 crowd, would it be correct to say that the front and rear are essentially butcher blocks with the sides and top a conventional lamination?

                  I had to Google ELI5. I knew it had to mean something...

                  The concern when building any box from solid wood is having two boards joined with the grain at right angles. The back and front are not butcher block because they are pretty (but they just happen to be), they are butcher block so the sides and top are attached to the front and back with the grain all running the same way.

                  It is a big no no in woodworking to have a crossgrain joint any wider than say 4"-6" lest the boards split due to unequal expansion/contraction which for all intents and purposes only happens on the width of the board, not the length.

                    Here is the finished speaker. There is also a graph of the individual drivers as I almost wrapped up crossover, including a reverse null, and the final response of the speaker.

                    Thanks for looking,

                    David.

                        Nice looking curves! What was your measurement setup?

                        My guess: 15. His grammar is passable. His trolling is good.

                          Those look great. I wish more speakers were done like that.

                          May I ask what tools did you use?

                                - Drill press
                                - Cordless drill
                                - Jointer
                                - Planer
                                - Biscuit jointer
