Thumbs up Point to point crossover advice

Hiya.

I'm about to rebuild the Xovers on my TDL Studio 3s and have got a new set of caps, inductors and resistors, all of the original values, just better quality.

My plan was to point to point the components using a silver based solder (which is a bit tricky to work with but I'm getting used to it.)

I have read a suggestion of mounting it on an MDF board but wondered if this was the best thing to use as a base. Would a hard wood of some sort be better/more dense/have less resonance?

I then hope to mount the x over outside the speaker.

Any thoughts/tips or more importantly things I shouldn't do?!

Thanks in advance for your help

Forgot to mention that all the components are glued to the MDF and to each other where needed with contact cement to prevent "rattling". and keep at least 10cm distance between the inductors so they won't influence each other .

Cool. There's only one inductor per speaker. Do I need to worry about positioning of the caps and resistors in relation to the inductor too?

Thanks

Not really. They could interact slightly, but so could the loops formed by the connecting wires with widely spaced components. Mostly no though.
