Very nice George, quite similar to some I made last year. What I was wondering is how did you manage to cut off the excess on the curved sides to make them flush with the front baffle? With somewhat limited resources I had a hell of a time because a curved side is very difficult to work with. I ended up using a lot of expensive filler in order to fill in my mistakes!!!

And I used 5 sheets of 3mm mdf laminated. It used LOTS of glue! But then my curved sides were the only external wall, they did not have the same internal construction as yours. But don't worry, you can't make the sides too thick, only too thin.

Hi Akiwiskibum (just visiting or adding to our population?-I'm in Adelaide)

Sides will be flushed with careful use of a belt sander (variable speed) works a treat - did this on flushing up ends of internal carcase.

Hopefully only filler will be on screw holes and filling minor voids in laminations.

May use "nordsjo" filler instead of two pack car filler - but not sure yet .
BTW -the internal constrution was an attempt to cut down parallel sides

Good luck

Hi All

just an update on the clonii fabers.
after many month of no movemnt they are back from the spray painters.
Finish is a fine metallic silver with a clear coat over.(spouse insisted on getting them done professionally!)

Next step is inserting baffle between front wings and formation of grille assembly (nylon cords of course)
Crossover space is in base of cabinet with leg/supports yet to be constructed

Hi All

Just thought I'd post some additional views as the project has (slowly) progressed
the speakers are now functional and awaiting grilles (yes to be modelled on the Sonus type . I will use 2mm diam hat elastic for cords..)
Baffle fronts and top are covered in a vinyl leatherette which looks better in real life than in photos

Sides are not yet filled with sand and crossovers (while temporary an awaiting active versions) have been tweaked over last few weeks to get some agreeable sound out of them.
The XT25's are hard to work with and all tuning is by ear..

There are 2 sets of bnding posts on rear ( cheap knock-off's of WBT's i think) just below relex port.
