More Curvy Speaker progress *PIC*
Not much more. I was spinning my wheels today a bit it felt like. I managed to get my meager crossover hot glued to the back of the input terminal and wired up and ready to install. It's a real simple first order crossover to start with. Mr. Roemer e-mailed me a second order one some time back, I may go with it in the future if this one doesn't meet my meager expectations. I'm better at building boxes than doing extensive crossovers.
Man, this is a fun hobby! And not really that expensive compared to some others.
I like your enclosures you have built! Did you brad nail the front's or just glue them on ? Was there alot of resistance when bending that sucker onto the front?

Re: The Grills... *PIC*
Because of the narrow baffle, I'm trying something different for the grills. I usually don't even do grills (I love to look at the drivers) but I've been wanting to try the Neo magnet grill holder deal others have done.
The Frame is a 3/8" dowel mitered at the corners. I plan to cover this with black grill cloth and mount it about 1/2" to 3/4" away from the front baffle. If I were to use 3/4" material for a grill, I think the sound would be doing all sorts of bouncing around. My Polk RTi-12's have this sort of grill on them, so it's not my idea. It's a good one though, so I borrowed it!

Thank you! I used Gorilla glue, and I used clamps to glue first the bottom, then worked my way to the top (the more narrow part) The MDF bends fairly easily. I got it most of the way by hand before I used the clamps to bring it the rest of the way.
I did have a slight problem gluing up the baffle on the second box. This morning after taking off the clamps I noticed a hairline crack in the end grain on the very bottom of the baffle. I blew it out with air, squirted more Gorilla Glue in there and lightly clamped it all day. It's holding fine, but I was a little worried there.
Thanks Tom , may have to try something like this *NM*
