I only have a jigsaw (so I can the hole) :-)

Hey I got one of those too. I guess I'll go that route instead. Thanks for the tip

I know folks use the Ultratouch denim for damping. I noticed they have acoustical panels which resemble thick felt sheets which may be more appropriate as it comes in different thicknesses.

This stuff looks really nice.

Thanks!
If you are interested in doing line-level BSC, here is a link:
Baffle Step Compensation

Unless you have low impedance drive from your receiver or source, it requires a buffer or pre-amp to get low impedance to drive to the power amp.

Progress.... About that....
Progress will be slow. I'm balancing school, work, and sports at the moment but that will be dying down shortly. The season ends mid February and my second semester is much lighter.
I'm going to build the cabinets first, but the drivers are out of stock for 6 to 8 weeks. So it will be probably 2 to 3 months before they are complete.
Patience is a virtue.

Default Update:

I purchased the plywood (3/4" "Sandeply") which, if I remember, has a maple veneer on it. The largest void I could find visible along the edge was less than 1/8", so it at least seems decent. But the veneer looks especially nice. Very even.

My father is coming by tonight to lend some extra hands. nice to see the ball finally rolling.

Great Design Dumble! I love a simple design with lots of promise.

I've read the thread quickly and was wondering if I'm the only one that looks at a 45" span and thinks that it may need some internal bracing.

What say ye?
