Default Seas Prestige FU10RB08 (H1600-08) - Build Thread

Just build a FR speaker using SEAS FU10RB08.

Reason for build this speaker:
-I have built the ZAPH SR-71, good impression with SEAS prestige drivers - good quality for the price;
-I have never built a FR speaker, and I blame DIYAUDIO for having a dedicated section for FR
-Solen offers special price for this driver - even cheaper than madisound...surprised
-I need a small speaker for my PC

Below is the link from solen.ca:

The cabinet ends up 1.54L(H14cm x W10cm x H11cm), sealed, using 3/4" MDF.

Using JigSaw cut the MDF into small pieces, then glue them together as below picture shows.

Well, it's a 4", so it's not good on low end...other than that, it sounds wonderful.
Better use it as 2.1 set up.
