The wood you refer to as filmed birch plywood is called "stÝbeplader" in danish, right?
I'm just asking to make sure, because it looks pretty much the same with the dark brown color.

Also: Darkwithin, in your DIY boominater album in your signature, you have uploaded a picture where you put a grey substance on the magnet of the speakers - is this because of the previously mentioned problem where the new HP-10W design doesn't fit in the cabinet?

thanks

Yup. It's "stÝbeplader" in Danish.

@ rubennn
No that is plastic padding for metal, strongest **** on earth, for the "new design" problem I found some hard rubber tubes that was 10mm thick and glued it in a ring on top of the grill and then jammed the speakers down into the box and fastened my elements with "self-drilling-screws"(I guess) from the outside. witch seams to have worked pretty well. I'll have to see the results when the amp comes along this week.

New pics up. Some color, and what a color it is.
it really is a handsome design. thank you Mr Saturnus. lol

You're very welcome. It's really looking good. Just wait though. Once you hear how it plays outside (and after play-in time) then you'll know why it took me a very long time to get the design just right. And you'll also find out just how incredible solid it is. It's basically indestructable.

I was just wondering one thing. I've never played with resistors before. should the resistor be wired in before or after the tweeter. like on + or -?

It doesn't matter in any way.

This is the diagram as it should be:



Amp + --------- Woofer + --------- Resistor ------- Piezo +

Amp - --------- Woofer - -------------------------- Piezo -



That's it really. If you use the version with low-pass coil it's:



Amp + --------- Piezo + ---------- Coil ------------ Woofer +

Amp - --------- Woofer - ------- Resistor ---------- Piezo -

Nice looking box Darkwithin - i really like the rubber finish of your box! Can i ask what kind of paint you used? and did you clear coat it? Did you paint directly onto the plywood or did you stain the wood first (or fill it with polyfilla?)

I am still trying to figure out how to paint the box properly so any help would be appreciated but again.. Great job Darkwithin
