More progress. 2 days in and well over half the parts cut. Everything is dry fitted to check for alignment and it all looks good. A few parts do require hand finishing as the CNC isn't a do it all tool. I'm kinda glad about that because some of the fun and achievement is lost when its this easy. I'm sure I'll be eating those words when it comes to spraying them! Huge surface area + gloss black = lots of work

This is awesome!!!

If I remember correctly you stated that you will be using digital/external crossovers, I'm curious, did you model the complex baffle shape?

And oh yes I can't wait for you to spray them! I am in the process of spraying my speakers (finally!!) but I am a bit low budget hehe, would be awesome to see some more tips from you hehe

I can never get over your builds, they are inspiring. It really makes me want to strive to go to the extra lengths for the finer details.

Have the internal parts that are on a slant, been cut at an angle, so that they sit flush inside of the enclosure? Or is there a small gap there? I am just wondering about how your CNC cuts those parts.

Also, are the side firing woofers not flush mounted? Or is there another part to go on top?

Thanks,

Ryan

Hi Ryan and thanks.

If there's any external angles it can get to those. Internal one's it can't due to the cutter always being perpendicular to the work. You can get custom cutters to solve this problem but what I'm doing for now is all the external one's are done on the cnc and the external one's I run over with a cross pull mitre saw.

They need to go back on the cnc and the driver cut out probed to find the center then the rebates will be cut. Shame you can only cut one side at a time with the cnc.

Its difficult to accurately model such things but for the baffle face then yes. Edge was used to best smooth the ripple.

If I'm not too busy I'm happy to help out DIY'ers with cabinet parts done on the CNC.
