      Looks great Channing! Nice to see them starting to come to life.

        Thanks! I'm hoping this one turns out as good as I think it will. I'll be powering it with either my Amp 100 or my Crown XLS1500

              sawdust & glue
              girlfriend's sister came to visit, so i ended up working on these all day long! first i had to go find my handheld router, and it had gotten wet, so it's all oxidized and rusted up, unfortunately, but still works like a charm. when i finally got the bit installed and tightened down, i rounded over the cutouts on the braces, when ended up looking like a kinda nice turd. I thought to myself, "never mind them, they'll be inside the box, nobody will see them." and proceeded to begin gluing up the first box...



              ... at which point i realized that the holes in the braces, which were supposed to create extra airspace for the woofer, were cut on the side of the brace instead of the rear ughhhhhhhhhh. so i had to create new braces, but had limited scraps, so i cut pieces big enough to replace the holes wrongly cut in my original braces. Well, the new braces turned out much nicer, and aren't quite turds.





              so now i can start gluing up panels... no. i actually decided it would be easier to attach the ceramic tiles to the inside of the enclosure while it's open. so then i setup the tile saw and marked all the tile to be cut. this was probably the easiest thing i've ever cut in my life, especially having never used it before.



              so now i finally started gluing up panels. my plan is to glue up the brace (which was the first one I glued up), top and bottom. then onto the side panel tiles, then top and bottom tiles, finally onto the front and rear baffles. I'll get started on those in the morning.



              thanks for tuning in!

                silicone & tile
                i spent the entire day yesterday working on these again, feels great. anyway, i started with the silicone and tile, pretty messy endeavor. so what i did was lay down a bunch of silicone (the one speaker carcass used 3 whole bottles of silicone caulking!) and used some little pieces of 1/8" aluminum rod for spacers, dropped the tile in place and weighed it down with some bricks we had left over from the house. This took pretty much all day because i did two side pieces, left it to dry for 30 minutes, other side pieces, top, then bottom. 10 minutes of work, and 30-40 minutes of drying time. then i went back and filled in between all the tiles with silicone, so they will never touch one another and aren't touching the wood either.





                i got curious and decided to weigh them this morning and just the shell you see in the above picture weighs in at 21.6lbs!


                Also, forgot the knuckle wrap test
