that's cute


looks like it's going well so far... quite a hectic glue-up! reminds me when i recently ran out of clamps for my needle glue-up... 35 degree heat and quickly drying PVA glue = not a lot of fun

Hi. Can someone tell me if I should double up on the damping for the back of cabinet. I have some really nice 12 mm 100% Swaledale wool felt for the job. I know Scottmoose recommends covering 3 sides but can't remember if he said more behind the driver.

Thanks.

Not initially. You could always add some more later, but I doubt you'll need it.

Nice build there.

I want to build a pair of the mock-ups as PC speakers, just for laughs.

Thanks for that link, too.

Indeed! It's just those 1 inch full-rangers are so hard to solder!

The ones i have aren't hard to solder, just really hard to mount.

HI. Well I've managed to get the brace and felt ready to glue in today. The brace was guite labour intensive as it took a lot of sanding to fit. The next one should be easier as I will cut it a bit smaller. Hope the holes are ok , I thought bigger would be good for air flow.

I was lucky enough to have two large pieces of ply left over so I put one in the outer cab and used the inner box as the template for the brace.
