    Re: TriTrix LCR Build

    The basic boxes and baffles are constructed so I am ready to route the speaker openings. For a jig I took a 3/4" mdf scrap and used a 5/8" forstner bit to drill a hole 1/2" deep. The 5/8" hole provides a snug fit for the router bushing that uses my 1/2" straight cutting bit. I needed a 5 3/4" diameter recess so I drilled a center hole 2 5/8" away from the center of the 5/8" hole and used a binding post to spin the template around. The first plunge will cut a 1/2" hole thru the balance of the 3/4" mdf and provide the zero clearance needed to minimize splintering.

    Here are a few new pictures of the progress on my build.


    LCR MDF boxes. Decided to go with removable backs.

    TriTrix LCR Build

    This thread will document my build of three TriTrix Speakers. The speakers will all be the 10 liter sealed version as designed by Curt Campbell. Please visit Curt's web site for detailed informaton on this popular design: http://speakerdesignworks.com/ I want to thank Curt and everyone on this site for your help and letting me steal your ideas.

    Here is the link to the speakers in the Project Speaker Gallery: http://techtalk.parts-express.com/sh...d.php?t=217184


    This is the concept for the left and right speakers. This is basically the standard sealed design with a 1" wider baffle.


    Here is the concept for the center channel. It's dimensions follow the 10 liter standard design by Curt.


    Glue up of center channel 3/4" mdf box.


    Baltic Birch ply to be laminated that will provide the core of the L/R bases.


    L/R mdf box pieces. Unlike CKMoore my shop has sawdust. (Saftey equipment was left off for documentation purposes. Do not try this at home unless you are an idiot like me.)


    Bottom of one of the L/R 3/4" mdf boxes ready for glue.


    Top of L/R box.



    Glue up of one of the L/R boxes. Thanks to Lunch, I pulled out my 1960's corner clamps.

    More to come.
