Default Pensil P70.3 build

Here are some pictures from my most resent build. Glue up and a few pictures of the brace. Yes the brace does take a lot of time to build. Hopefully it was worth it.

I wrapped them in black vinyl. First time I have ever done anything like this. Next time will be easier.

Last ones. Enjoy. I have not have a chance to sit and listen yet, but it is amazing the sound that can come from such a small driver.

Hello Malibujeff,
Good looking project and nicely made.

The standard of fit and finish is becoming top draw giving branded products a run for their money.

If you have the time, can you post some pics of the equipment you used. Any build information and advice you can give would help newer Diyers.

Cheers
Mark.

Thanks Mark!

No special tools here, just the basics. I have a Craftsman Table saw that I used to cut everything. I used a nail gun with some small brads to keep the sides from sliding around during glue up. This works well if you don't have the tools to use dowels or biscuits. Here are a few picks. First is a Ryobi plunge router. Next, the Jasper circle guide used to cut the hole in the baffle. I use Titebond glue for my projects with great success. Must have multiple clamps. The more the better! The forth pic is the 45 degree router bit used on the back side of the baffle. And last, it the brad nail gun.

Default Stuffing reccomendations

Hey all,

I do have some questions about the stuffing. I started off with the recommended amount called for in the plans. The plans called for 14.5 ounces (406g) so they are packed pretty good from the top down to the top of the vent.

Can someone describe what I should hear if I start removing some of the stuffing? Or adding more? More bass, less bass, tighter bass, muddy bass, etc... The speakers now have about 100 hours on them and I want to start fine tuning them.

Thanks,

Jeff

As stuffing comes out bass will increase (some) & ripple will increase

That's a beautiful build. Make sure to post pics in the Pensil Pics thread! How did you finish the back? This definitely gave me incentive to do a vinyl wrap build myself. LOVE the look!

Scott

EDIT: just saw you posted a couple pics in the thread already. Feel free to post more though :-)
