    Good catch. That joint is glued and has two kreg pocket screws on each end. The pockets are exposed on the top side.
    I am some what concerned with the single screw that goes into the ceiling joist. I think each speaker weights about 20-25 pounds. I wanted to maintain the swivel and tilt ability so I couldn't use multiple screws. Theoretically each screw will hold a couple hundred pounds in withdrawal force so it should be fine. (If not the speaker wires should break the fall.:eek

    Thanks. I still need to take some pictures now that they are finished. I am now building a pair of the TriTrix for surrounds. But, I could stop building speakers anytime I wanted. Maybe after a sub, and maybe some Coppers.....

    Spikes for Sealed TriTrix?

    Should I use spikes for For my left and right sealed TriTrix speakers? I will be using a sub so I will not be sending a signal below 80 to the TriTrix. In other words is coupliing to the floor just for bass or does it have another purpose?

    Re: TriTrix LCR Build

    The speakers are coming together and I am really starting to get the itch to hear the TriTrix. Two pair of speakers will be delivered monday and since I am only building 3 speakers (LCR) I will be placing an ad to sell the fourth in PE's Free Classifieds forum.



    Baffles are finished and ready for the speaker grilles. All dowel sections are held to the baffles with magnets.


    1/4" BB frame for speaker cloth. Corners are half lapped.


    MDF was prepped with wood filler, sanding sealer, duplicolor primer/surfacer and painted with one can of satin black. Of course each step was followed by sanding and the black paint was used as a guide coat for finish sanding.



    MDF after one rattle can of flat black was sprayed. Seeing CKMoore's flat black baffle I switched from satin to flat. Thanks CK.

    Constructed the support bases today. Bases are multiple BB plywood layers covered with 1/2" mdf. Screws up from the bottom will secure the baffle into the void of the base.


    Tops of base glued and routed flush.


    Corners dressed with 1/4" round over.

    Re: TriTrix LCR Build

    I have finished the speaker cut outs and I have been making the speaker grilles and tweeter guards. Picked up the magnets at Harbor Freight. 10 for $2. I think the magnets set into the baffle will be left exposed and not covered.

    Routing thru solid oak is not as much fun as routing mdf.

    Tweeter guards and grille standoffs.
