Home Depot and Lowes won't do anything but cut sheets to transportable size, and very poorly at that. Their panel saws are invariably out of alignment and have worn, dull blades.

Do you have any REW graphs for how they sound from your standard listening spot?

If you get the wood from Home Depot/Lowes, will they router out a hole for you?

I see you have these in a tight space next to wall in the instructable. Do they sound better farther away?

Here in Canada, or at least in the city I live in, the Home Depot will do as many cuts as I want and they do them very, very well. The deal is, first 3 cuts free and then $1 per cut after that. Twice now I have not been charged for the extra cuts; the last time it was 14 cuts in total, they were all free, and they were all pretty-much perfect. I consider myself lucky, I guess.

They will not, AFAIK, route driver holes/rebates, though.

I don't have any graphs; I lack the equipment to do a proper test.
They will most likely not router the whole- it isn't too bad to do it by hand. I did mine with a jig saw and then finished it with some sanding.

As fo the positioning, the spacing near the wall is out if necessity. I can't do much else with my listening space but position them close to walls. It doesn't sound bad though- no noticeable reflections but a strong room mode around 60 hz.

I have to agree, my home depot will do free cuts but only to get panels down to transportable size, very crooked and dull blade
