  • thin mtm

    some of you may remember that i 'inherited' a couple of thin inclosures that just needed baffles. well, these are headed for my boss' house. silverflute 5.5 and the vifa dx25tg mtm. they already have some nice thick walnut venneer on them so im just going with semi-gloss black. they have been sealed and have a thick coat of grey primer that ill get to sanding on next weekend.i used two pieces of 3/8 glued together. i also used an addittionttoal piece glued on bottom as the top will becom a grill.

      Nice job so far. Still amazes me the amount and quality of work that comes out of that little shop:D

          Let me think about it - I have a preliminary measurement on those tweeters, by the way.

            I like the look of the flared ports on your baffle! I think it will turn out much better than buying the flare, like Precision Ports, especially if you are going to paint.

            Cheers,

              Yeah, I'm a big fan of flaring ports that way as well. Really makes them seamless... I did similar on the Poor Man's:

                i bought one 10 foot stick and have used it for 3 subs, and three speaker builds. now i would just discover bondo.
                john, i do it because the mdf is free. still torturous.:D

                  well, this is what im going with. i will build them and listen for awhile. its easy to build them outside the box and tweak as needed when they have ports.
                  should finish painting the baffles today and then put a finish on the boxes.

                        Re: thin mtm

                        baby steps. two coats of sander primer with some, lots of sanding and then three coats of red primer and then three coats of flat black and three coats of clear semi gloss waterbased (blue can) on the baffles. golden mahogany stain fallowed by three coats of wipe on poly and two coats spray gloss poly on the enclosures. next weekend ill glue and screw the baffles on. need a good cure so i dont mark them up with clamps.


                        oh, and got the grills covered too.
