Actually, the baffles are rebated for flush mounting, you just can't tell from the picture I attached. I will rasp the backs as suggested. I also have a little drum sander that attaches to my drill motor. I think I can get that it there too. I'll chamfer it the best I can at this point. And in case anyone was thinking I did a complete crap job on the top piece, it isn't attached yet! I'm leave that removable until I get them tuned to where it like them.

Thanks!

You also do the majority of the chamfer with a jig saw at 45 and use the rasp only where the blade would touch the side.

Is it my eyes or is the baffle vertical rather than angled back slightly?

don't beat yourself up about the joinery - I don't document many of my builds, certainly not the sloppy ones (at least until they've been veneered over and tarted up)

I think you're right - how could I've missed that? In theory as long as the internal taper was maintained per the drawings, overall enclosure loading effect would probably remain unaffected, but the driver position is low enough that without the 5` tilt vertical dispersion and height of image could be a bit off.

What's that little thing above the 5 Chris? Is it meant to be 5

Nope, the baffle is definitely at the proper 5 degree angle back. Just an optical illusion based on camera angle. I actually had the ply cut at the woodshop at the high school my wife teaches at. Using their large table saw (vs my benchtop one) and large miter saw was the way to go!

yes the old man is too lazy to learn & use the special function keys - particularly considering that I could be using any one of 3 difference 'puters and OS, 4 if you count the phone

and they say the camera doesn't lie - that's not what Tom Cruise's co-stars might say

(he's short - almost as vertically challenged as moi)

Hi Tom,
you can still route that chamfer with a proper template, guide bush and a dovetail bit. depending on the bit, the angle will be only 14, but that will be ok.
bye,
yai.
