Actually, that sounds like great idea to me. The only thing i would be afraid of is glue getting into the threads of a T-nut.

Besides that, i think you should be OK

Ok, but I have decided to use it as is but remove one of the tags closest to the edge. In that way I will not risk anything to crack. I will also put some glue under the t-nut before driving it in. I only have this problem on one of the tweeter ( I made the hole a little too big).

I tried driving them in without removing a tag but I got a slight cracking (delaminating) so when mounting the woofers I will remove one tag per T-nut closest to the edge of the hole for the woofer to make sure it doesn´t crack. I used a hammer taking it slow and easy but I think the delaminating could be avoided if not using a hammer, driving it in with a screw and washer. I will try this next time. Takes experience to mount these it seems.

Pictures of the baffle and I got some speaker terminals today, from Jantzen audio, about 9 Euro per terminal. Seem sturdy and quite heavy.

Got some cheap 2.5mm speaker cable, I think it will do to start with. This weekend I will do the crossover and hopefully play a little to see if everything is ok! Exciting !

Reminds me a bit of an updated DBS4- a kit design in the now log defunct UK magazine Practical Hi-fi, designed by Dave Berriman.

You mean a closed box one with proprietary woofer and Morel tweeter?
