I have added a few pictures on my next project, the RFL-30L
Progress report RFL-30L
a few new pictures below and in the folder.
The 30 litres CB:s are in place, the baffles are finished.
Next awaits mounting of the drivers and XO-prototyping with a little help from my DCX2496

Re: Progress report RFL-30L
What type of wood and thickness are you using for the internal bracing? Any concerns about contraction/expansion from humidity and temperature changes?

Re: Added folder
all the bracings are about 28x28mm and the "crossties" are abt 28x35mm.
I used pairs of wedges, the kind you use when you mount windows in a wall structure, to mount the crossties. wood-type is pine, I think. It´s the most common wood in Sweden. You know, like 90% of Sweden is pine forrest

I tend to make my boxes very rigid, nowadays. I understand from what I read that some people consider the typical "box-sound" from a "normal" speaker to come from the flexing box-sides and I try to eliminate that.
In another design, I used a three-layer box,(19mm MDF, 4mm heavy bitumen, 6mm MDF) but this time, I decided to try this instead.
