You won't need a big box, those drivers should be fine in 8L each.

Plywood every day of the week. Ew, i still can't understand why people use MDF. I don't find it easier to work with at all. But it might just be me :P

12mm is really really thin 15-18mm would be much easier to work. Anything less than that and each drill hole, each cut you make you risk to lift bits of wood around the area you're working on (i'm assuming you're not a master woodcrafter).

Personally, i never go below 20mm :P (First project was 30mm )

Cool, love it when they publish the specs. Every thing you need for the design in that PDF.

thanks everyone, been a massive massive help, hopefully my things turn up soon so i can play around with it all and let you know how it goes.

so the woofers are not the best option then, if i change the woofers, could i still use the crossovers and tweets that come in the package?

if so what 6.5" woofers does any one recomend?

thanks

matt

In defense of MDF, try making a panel door out of ply and then giving it a paint finish, or a box with a quarter round profile on the edges and then finish it in a piano gloss. Real wood has it's problems too, make a bunch of cupboard doors out of it and you will need to replace some of them a year or even two later through splitting and warping because it's not very stable. MDF overcomes these problems but is very dense and lacks strength for shelving etc, it sags with time. It's horses for courses, I'd make a portable boom box out of exterior grade 18 mm ply.

agreed - MDF definitely has its place, even in speaker building ( i.e. jigs and templates ) but piano gloss finish on any material takes tons of time

I think johnnyfive82's charger is the right one. The one OP posted earlier in the thread is an RC Car charger and thus suited for lithium ion/lithium polymer batteries.
