rcavictim: this question has come up, only question I ponder is how do I mount the clear sides on & visually pleasing (exposed screws)

jfieb: many questions here, this is not my design. Many of his techincal knowlege & ideas are yet to understood by me. The original Austins are designed by Ron, you can check out these threads, many of your questions can be answered:

in regards to smooth radiii, please check out this topic:

Skin, not sure what to put on it, maybe for this prototype, I'll put on some PE vinyl adhesive (hope i don't start any fires here)

MDF - i've tossed around the layers, as long as you don't bend it forcefully, it will not break;even stronger when they're all glued together

this is the latest thread:

These layers are cut with a CNC router (hope i'm not repeating myself)

This is purely a prototype, standby for update, thank you

Maybe 1/4-20 brass threaded rod buried and epoxied in the wood protruding out through the plastic side panel and terminated with a polished brass flatwasher and brass acorn nut.. This will require perfect perpendicular alignment of the studs. Alternately one could punch holes for full cabinet width rods through all the laminated panels during manufacture to put a true 'squeeze' on the speaker That would be superior and the rods would automatically become truly perpendicular to the plastic sides.

A gasket of thin felt, color of your choice would look nice between the sides and the wood and would solve seal/vibration noises and eliminate possible long term abrasion scuffing of the inside of the sideswalls.

Not sure which picture you are referring to, please clarify

Maybe these are a little better.

This is the pic i was talking about. With external cabinet dimensions, and a side on view, like in this pic but straighter, and i can make plans for this.
i dont have any flash tools, but i do have access to a router.
I would probably cut each layer with a jigsaw and hand finish.
More work, but hey, who cares.
I used to make accoustic guitars so am used to tight tollerences working with wood.
