Default 'off the shelf' FE87E BLH

Hi,

I was going to try to build the frugels, but my limited knowledge in building (So far only made some (nice) KEF CS-7's) combined with the un-finished state of that project made me look for something else first.

Ended up choosing the standard, recommended BLH enclosure for the FE87E. (I think they're cute)
I've got the 15mm plywood all sawed up, the bloke at the shop did a ince job, and now I'm glueing things together etc. etc. bla bla.

Some questions as to help me improve my skills:
* should one screw as well as glue a: All parts, or b: only the largest parts ? (I know I should at least screw ONE side-panel, as to be able to arrage stuffing etc.
* What should I be aware of when building these particular boxes?
* Any ideas about the stuffing (again: for these particular boxes)

Any other caveats?

Thanks, Paul

I assume it's the one for the FE83E. In which case, wrong driver / enclosure combination. As the FE87E has a higher Q, that might not necessarily be a bad thing, but what it will do the the response I wouln't like to say. I can try modelling it in MathCad when I have chance, but these Fostex boxes aren't the easiest.
