as Phil said: I think that is something to do with the world bowling championship?
I don't even own one of those tv things,
all my vacuum tubes go in amps...

much less know (or care) who won the bowling game.

and you call yourself an "merican"?


but seriously, mr chaos, could you elaborate a bit on the tapped sub design? With all the cross thread chattering, it's easy for us old farts to lose track.

G'day Matias,

It's easiest to use metric.
The calculator simply works out the block size based on the measurements you put in.
If you use inches, then you would have to input it as a decimal number (eg. 3/4" = 0.75, 1/8" = 0.125 etc) and then convert the decimal for the block size back to imperial.

Cheers,

Alex

Hello one and all, I was trying to come up with a quick and easy way to apply the pattern to my internal panels and was thinking of making a template out of thin cardboard or suitable material, cutting out the pattern and then using drywall plaster and a putty knife and do the pattern on my internal panels this way.
Does this seem like a good idea?

G'day andré,

A stencil is an idea I have had for some time.
I haven't tried dry wall plaster but it would be faster and easier to cover large panels.
However you do it, do try and keep the edges of the blocks as clean and sharp as possible.

Other than that, let us know how it goes and how it sounds.

The calculator with give you the ideal block size for the baffle and all external edges.

For the internal block size
- enter 18 block pairs
- enter 4 x internal cabinet width as the circumference.
Wait...
On the calculator the circumference of the baffle is also referred to as the perimeter of the baffle. The perimeter is 2 x width + 2 x height. This is not necessarily equal to 4 x width, as quoted, unless the baffle is a square. So which is it? 4 x width or the actual geometric perimeter?
