Damn those alum rulers with opposite markings!
 
Hi all,

While constructing a new set of boxes for my Audio Nirvana 8 inchers...I miscalculated and made one of the front driver holes about 5 inches lower than the other box. Boxes are glued together so my options are limited. The design is AN's 2.8 Ambiance model with an additional 8 incher on top. So... is it possible to correct this by doing the following: The additional 8 incher on top is for the "ambiance" effect. What about if I move it to the rear instead? Basically, I will cut a new hole on the back of the cabinet so the rear will now be the new "front" of the cabinet...thus correcting the screw-up. But, since there is now a hole still there from the screw-up, can I place the "ambiance" speaker there instead of the top? The layout will be two 8 inchers across from each other, but not at the same symmetrical hight. The front will be about 5 inches higher than the rear. Does anyone see a problem with this?

Thanks

As the DIY man Tommy Walsh is always telling us, measure twice and cut once.

Go buy a pint of bourbon and see how it looks in the daylight. Or just put another front on the cabinet with the hole in the right place? Getting things right with holes can take a lifetime.............

I'm usually the last one to take my own advice...but along with the sunday funny's, could you also offer some contructive opinions.

...And just to answer the inevitable comment...no...I'm NOT going to use the cabinet as an outhouse. There.

Cut a piece of wood and patch the hole in the front !?
Its no big deal, I have had to do it before, when I did not measure thrice and cut once:D

yea...that was my initial thought...but I was wondering if the 5 inch difference in the bipole config would have a negative effect rather than a symmetrical positioning?

that was my second thought...but I'm trying to avoid as much work as possible.
