Well, what I was trying to say is there are several correct ways to do something and then there is the way you SHOULDN'T do it.
But it's your time to waste, so I'll leave you in peace.

This is the quickest way to test the curved cuts required for the inside layers. In other words this box is just a test dummy.

I guess I'm having a bad day, but what exactly "is" your goal, or at least, what are you researching?

Best Regards,

That makes 2 of us. The goal is to make an effective T-Line vertical array.

Can anyone suggest a pattern to cut for the inside layers? A curved trumpet shape or something. Leaving 2 panels for the outside. Preferable with the terminus exiting toward the ceiling.

Or usually the best way to get optimum sonics out of a panel. But it is MDF, which isn't very good speaker building material to start with.

Please tell us more about the goals of the experiment?

Best achieved using flat material in the convential way.

Great now where getting somewhere.
Yes I have watching Bob Brines projects for some time. MDF is fine for this stage. The material used in the final design will be different. But it must be cut this way. It's a very dense material. The end result will NOT be flat, for it is molded. So at this stage, MDF will do for now.
