Default MDF cut with CNC machine

I am interested in building a pair of cabinets like this:

http://mywebpages.comcast.net/kidder...slam_alpha.htm

Does anyone know of a job shop in the Northwest that would
do this kind of work?

Any ideas what it would cost to get done?

Anyone tried it?

Hi Herm,

Remember Bob from CSS at the PacNW Geek Fest? He is looking to generate as much mdf dust as he can. Send him an email http://www.rawacoustics.ca/.

Andy Graddon (occasional poster here) builds a lot of cabinets this way (hand/jig routing) and Ron Wells is currently well into a similar project which type of stuffing?.

Keith has done some interesting projects.

The WRX is too off & on (turbo lag) to be really practical or much fun in traffic. I much prefer my Legacy wagon. If you want fast get one with the six (althou mine is plenty fast enuff to get me in trouble -- fortuneatly white station wagons tend to be invisible )

Default Ah, but wait until the highway..

My Saab likewise hates traffic. However, advancing the timing 4 degrees farther than stock really makes it a rocket off the line by comparison to stock. Also helps that my Saab has the shortest gearing of any 9000T (to my knowledge). There's just way too much drivetrain backlash and sensitivity to make it fun in stop and go traffic though.

Once she's out on the open road, watchout! I rarely downshift unless I'm passing on a two lane highway, and then it's typically only one gear, otherwise I'll hit the rev limiter before I'm done passing. I'm running more boost than a WRX, by the way. But then, my car is heavier.

Wow that guys page is amazing, especially the measurment part. I will definently stay away the Apex Jr ribbon , but I am extremely impressed with the new vifa "concentric ring" tweeter, that thing is rock solid from 2K all the way up.

Now that thread jacking is cleared up...

Are you implying that you don't like the WRX simply because it has a turbo or that the turbo itself is not very responsive? Doesn't it have a smallish turbo like a KKK (for passerby's this KKK is a european turbo company not the KKK from the hills) equivalent of the Garret T25, which should be about as responsive as any turbo out there. You want a real traffic pleaser, try N/A 4 cylinders. Gotta drop a gear just to get passing speed. I think my next car will be a turbo'ed 4, my current is staying N/A just to learn the basics, but I'm pondering a 98-99 CRV next, that way I can use all the knowledge I have now and still have the stealthiness and advantages of a (small) SUV. Although I do love wagons too, especially a nice Audi or BMW variety. I hope I grow out of the car thing someday, I got into DIY audio cause building engines and cars is WAY to expensive for this 21 yr old.

Keith and a couple other guys were talking about the WRX on another Forum. This was their feeling from actual use -- i just did a test drive.

Seems as i get older the more & more i like stealth -- i'd rather spend my money on other things than cars too -- like hifi.

And for around here the flat-4 doesn't get outdragged very often, and the all wheel drive is a godsend in the rain. And it is nice pushing it up the mountain (i live at the end of 7 km of lovely paved twisties)

I have a blue Outback (second 4 years lease almost expired) and it also tends to be invisible. I didn't get any tickets while driving those cars, although I used to get a lot with other vehicles.
