    Javad - excellent use of innovative techniques and writeup as usual. I had to read about the midrange truncated trapeziod cuts several times, but I think I get it now. The chop saw is just cutting a 45 degree angle as usual, but the board is positioned at an angle so the miter on the slanted sides comes out perfectly. Complex stuff for my head! I imagine it's like anything else, once you do it a few times it becomes clear.
    Don basically instead of tilting the blade for the compound cut, you tilt the material and do it that way, works like a charm!

As I'm sure you know, the glue joints on softer wood are stronger than the wood itself. What do you think? Some got ya' as to why you shouldn't?

              Hey Javad, As usual your build logs are a blast to follow. The pictures are awesome and help inspire me to get my own InDIYana project into the sawdust phase. I'm glad you like that WEN benchtop sander. I've been considering one myself, if not for all the other money being spent in other places in life!

              Keep up the great work! I'll be even more excited to hear these in April!

                Awesome build! That MCM woofer looks great for the money. Faital Pro never disappoints either!

                  Man, if I ever come to California, and visit you, and we're listening to music, and there is an earthquake..... I am for sure going to hide under a few of your speakers for safety... you build them like tanks!

                            Time to install some drivers!

                            This is the layout



                            As I’ve done before, this is the process for an odd shaped driver Template.

                            First protect your driver and screw it down to a sacrificial MDF panel, 1/2” works great.



                            Next with a perfectly centered router base, trace around the frame with a 1/4” spiral bit, put an even layer of masking tape around the driver frame to slightly over size the template



                            Now on a new sacrificial piece, trace around the inside of the first sacrificial Template



                            This leaves you with a template 1/4” oversized

                            Now using a 3/4” Templating fixture, trace around the second sacrificial template to get the final template perfectly sized to the driver







                            With centering reference lines it is quick and easy to align the fixture on your baffle



                            Here is a quick blog describing the process: https://youtu.be/q5hltXG6X-Y

                            Here we have two enclosures ready to destroy, I mean flush mount drivers in! =)



                            Test cuts finalizing OD, ID and recesses

                            Marked and ready to go with logic check tracings



                            Midrange ID cut



                            8” recess and cutout





                            Position driver exactly where it needs to go, install fishing line in driver holes



                            Now with double sided tape on template, slide it over the driver frame and attach it firmly, then pull the driver out. This process perfectly positions the template centered around the driver cutout







                            Flush trim bit



                            And router



                            Test fit



                            Next port tube routering.

                            Thanks!
