Don't forget to relieve the back of the driver cut-outs for better air flow.

I do not have to smooth the surface because I will use black speakercover cloth to cover the MDF front panels. It doesn't scratch and you won't see any fingers on it.

When you see the fatboy project there I have used velours to cover the mdf worked very good.

Good idea but I am afraid the hammer nuts I use won't fit then.

Just mark the screwholes carefully, and leave the exstra needed wood around them

Anyway, routing the back does more good than the hammer nuts...even a relatively small rounding will help

Now I hope your pleased with the made cut out.


I also removed the little plate by bending them back.

Thanks for the tip Planet10.

I cover the front with black acoustic cloth that is better to prevent scratching and spots of fingers on glossy paint.
