    Good catch. I actually forgot to account for the baffle thickness, have to lop off an inch.🙄

      If that's the only mistake you make on these, you're doing great I'd say. I consider veneer -- my preferred finishing method -- both a beautiful way to finish a cabinet off, as well as a great way to cover up all my screw-ups during construction.

      Those look to be tuned pretty low with that size vent. I'm always surprised how low the Encores I just finished which use the same size RS driver can play.
      I'm thinking 'no sub needed' with those.

      Looking good. Hey, isn't momentum great?!

        Thanks, Tom! Reality is, there's still lots to do, PLENTY of time to make a bunch more mistakes. I forget what the tuning wound up being, but yes, it's pretty low. I just went with a flat tuning, though, no EBS or anything. They look like they'll go low, but surely not loud. Once xmax is breached things get ugly quick. I may even put a high pass on the woofs to protect them.

          Port holes cut, then roundovers applied. Still need to do the chamfers, waiting on one of those fancy back cut chamfer bits from Javad. Almost ready to measure, then sim.

                Got the baffles glued in place, and the removable backs done, made the chamfer on one woofer cutout, and installed the drivers in that box so I can get to measuring. That undercut router bit from Javad is pretty scary. 😮

                  Lookin' sharp with the dark drivers on the light wood Mark.

                  3 projects there, a center channel, a couple rear surrounds (piccolata-ish clones), and some acoustic panel frames.
