Default Speedster

I just finished a 9.2 liter version of the Speedster. I re-purposed an old cabinet from an abandoned project. I wanted to use the cabinets as the veneering came out really nice. Veneer is raw anigre over an MDF followed with Watco natural Danish Oil and Minwax paste wax on top.

I had to make new baffles so I picked up 2 IKEA APTITLIG bamboo cutting boards $7.99 each. Dimensions are 11" x 17.75" x 5/8" - the website says it's 3/4" but it is not. These are nice because the end grain is vertical not horizontal and they are dead flat, no bowing like some boards with horizontal/flat end grain.

I tuned this to around 55Hz with a 1.5" x 3.65" port. Light stuffing. I'm really happy how they turned out and how they sound. Bass is really nice and not overpowering. The Fountek is great with nice detail and no harshness at all. Paul hit a home-run with these.
