    Re: Continuum kaboom!

    The biggest issue was the hole for the mid. It use to be round. I actually free handed the new hole with a router after it was already veneered :eek: It isn't perfect but it is barely noticeable a couple feet away.

    Partially assembled. You can also see where the port was rounded over on the back. Click image for larger version

    Then update!!!;)

    When you have time....of course. I can post a couple of pics of my Continuum build, if you like. I am getting ready to start adding color.

    As I mentioned, because of recent circumstances, I will start the module in January or at least finish it by then. I am really looking forward to experimenting with the Kairos as well. So I will have two sets to play with.

    Looking forward to seeing your finish product Killa!!

    Alternatively, you can use a right-angle coupling, but may not find it necessary. Be sure to keep the box lining away from the vent input to prevent it being overdamped. I use 2 vents of somewhat dissimilar lengths, and line them with large open-cell foam (stuff as used in rain gutters to prevent leaf buildup) to help suppress possible vent resonances.
    Very cool, i love the concept.. universal 3 way design..

    Really nice job! I like the faceted edges even better than the roundovers. Is that paperbacked cherry veneer? How did you apply it? The finish?

    I've been working with a paperbacked hickory veneer and whenever I trim it with the router I end up with bits of the paper backing hanging on that I have to deal with. I've started just triming with an exacto knife but that's less than ideal.
    It is bubinga paperbacked veneer applied with the iron on wood glue method. I used a razor blade to trim it real close and then a block and some sandpaper to finish it. The finish is wipe on poly satin (forgot the exact brand. I will look later).

    I don't have a ton of experience w/ backed veneer but have you tried one of the veneer tape edge-trimmers? Many of the double-sides ones can be split into two pieces, so one side should be able to be used to trim a larger piece like a speaker cabinet.
