Vaughn,
The amp, speaker set and diffusers are simply stunning! Don't worry about the toddlers, they'll find other toys (but hopefully not the speakers' vc dust covers....)

FWIW, I prefer the soft plastic extended sleeve when simply twisting or braiding 2 or 3 conductors of this wire - a couple of layers of adhesive heatshrink inside and out gives you pretty good strain relief.

Those shown above have a larger opening in the plastic cover and are great if you're using hemp rope, cotton shoelaces, aquarium hose etc as sleeving or core - more desirable if you're planning on lots of plugging & unplugging

Default Few mm wider and shallow...

Scott,

I have a pair of A12 DBR boxes which I might be able to convert into the A12small BR box (also dubbed as Moose Monitors).

I will end up having a baffle which is ~26mm wider; I can reduce side length to keep the box overall volume same.

Should be ok?

Zia,
Scott may be busy with other things that has prevented him replying.

As long as you keep to the same internal volume the extra 26mm wider baffle should be OK. It might have a small impact on reduced imaging but this could be minor and could be not at all. You can always cut a 45-deg chamfer around the front baffle if you like.

When Scott sent me the design he only gave me the volume and port details. I ended up with the size of box that Scott and I published from playing around with CAD and several different sized boxes that gave the same volume. To my eyes the published box gave the most eye pleasing result.

Hope this helps.

Thanks Colin.

I was also thinking about the good old 45 degree chamfer trick - usually manages to make any box look thinner.

Yes. Plans:

For the baffle you will need 1" thickness with the A12P. With a 18-19mm board you will be left with 6-7mm after doing the rebate for the driver, and that is probably too less. I added a 6mm layer to the 18mm ply I had; Two layers of 1/2" ply should work too.
