Yes, very sage advice. I'm definitely going to make some test cuts, some test assemblies, etc. I have found a local lumber store near my house that looks promising for my building supplies. I must say, I'm addicted at this point.

One thing to be aware of: you might need an additional false baffle on the front so the driver's magnet clears the sloping internal baffle. I'm not 100% sure if it'll need it, but it's something to keep in mind if necessary. Remember to hang a model of Discovery from the ceiling between the cabinets too when playing Strauss.

I'm sorry Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
