Thank you both again

I feel a little like a Stranger in a Strange land. Have not heard the word grokked in a while

Ron my ears are crappy too. I will probably need to put the new crossover in the right speaker and leave the old one in the left to compensate. : (


Unless I am completely missing the point it seems in reading that the plywood raises the resonances and mdf lowers it. will using a 3/4 mdf front baffle backed up with 5/8 plywood negate the effect of the rest of the speaker being built out of plywood? I am sure you can get good results with ply and good results with mdf. It would be just my luck that using both will turn these into Bose.

thanks again

Ben

GM,
Cut list is a great program, nice tip.

Grokked? Hum, must be a Canadian thing, not a clue.......
Front baffle with both sounds like a good idea. No problems there as long as you relieve some of the backside for reverse pressure from the movement of the cone..
Don't over think this.
Ron

American origins. Robert Heinlein's Stranger in a Strange Land. Required reading.

GM, Thanks for the cut list it looks like a great program and timely as I am buying more materials monday.

Ron, I do have to stop overthinking it I just want to build the best speakers I can. This hobby is addictive. I am not normally this obsessive but for some reason I am spending way too much time on this.

Robert Heinleins is a science fiction author as wrote Starship Troops. Stanger in a Strange land was his best IMHO.

Fitting on a couple of fronts as we are transplants from the US.

thanks again all


Ben

I mean strange land in the most positive way - black bear momma with 3 cubs walking thru the yard. Mist rising off the Ottawa river. Fox and Wolf frequent visitors occasional moose sightings. One of the most beautiful places ever.

The port in the drawing is at the very bottom of the cabinet in reading many have put the port up 4.5" from the bottom does it matter and which was Scottmoose's intention?

thanks
