Hi Paul, Some of the Canadian ply is not bad.I didn't see any voids when making cuts.I don't have any buzzing etc. maybe just luck. No choice anyway. I usually use 13 ply baltic birch but that comes in 5'x5' sheets so,too small. I don't like MDF so went for the plywood. You could always go with MDF and if you like the design as much as I do it's pretty easy to build another pair with better material. The only damping I have is some 1/2" felt on the divider behind the driver from just below the driver up to the point plus a fist sized ball of polyester jammed into the point and a piece of felt on the floor of the enclosure. No problem with mid-high coming out the mouth. I'm sure there is some but pointed toward the ceiling I don't hear anything amiss. Thanks to Scott, Greg and MJK the design is very good. BIB sound has a quality of it's own. Even at low volume bass has impact.

Jim G.

I have a jigsaw and would like to duplicate your design.

Hello

I just experimented with 2 nails and a piece of string tied inta a 'loop' and traced the outline with the string 'loop' going around the two nails - I moved the nails further apart or closer together and lengthened or shortened the sting 'loop' until I got the shape I wanted when I traced the outline.

One thing I learned is that you should clamp the two pieces together before cutting so that you are making both pieces at the same time. otherwise, it is difficult to get two pieces that are exactly the same with a jigsaw. Mine were not quite the same but it would take a very good eye to see that.

I thought the oval suited the box.

good luck

Leonard

Thanks for the help but even after repeated tries last night and this morning I could not make it work. I would appreciate it if you would give it a go. My username is Ray_Collins and the password is red1. Any and all aide will be greatly appreciated....this is very frustrating!!!

Thanks,
Ray

Gm,
After I log on I am at a page that offers "To view the contents of any dir click here." After cliching on it I am at a page that has two dir's: One is Ray_Collins and the other is Speaker_Projects. The pictures are in the latter. Is this what you are getting?

Ray
