Yeah, the paint didn't like the contact adhesive at all and reacted badly ruining the finish. This stuff is fine and works really well. Only thing I don't like is the how much prep work the glue requires before you can use it.

Ah the Visaton Ti100 mids, I remember those from the very first bit of loudspeaker DIY I did; a Visaton Topas kit with a cabinet related twist:

You mean those arent the stock cabinet design for that kit?

For that to be your first DIY project you must have a background in making thaings that are awesome... or woodworking... or something else. Perhapse you are just a very dedicated perfectionist .

Great work, keep it up!

Thanks, the wording was deceiving though, before the home audio I was heavily into car audio and built a few installs that gave me a good footing for all this.

Ah, the secret's out Shin!

Now I know how you became so good with the cabinets!

I've always had great respect for car audio install guys- incredibly dedicated, take great pride in their rides, and perfectionists when it comes to their projects.

Way OT but have you seen Per Soda's Lime Beetle project?

Shin, I have those 4 drivers myself, and am saving them for another project. I'm using the 7's in a project right now. As for the 5"...Do they have a spyder with negative compression? IIRC, they come that way but it does look alarming, when you initially see it. I'm just looking for conformation on the negative position of the spyder thinge. Yours look like they have it as well, from the position of the cone.

As for the Weldbond, Guitar makers and Luthiers use it..due to one specific thing: It has the same mass and bonding characteristics of the wood itself, which is perfect for the laminate. The watered down weldbond makes for a deep and thorough bond point between the laminates..that has verly low 'changes' in density and internal reflection throughout the bond point, ie, it cuts down on multiple resonance issues within the material itself, that can be created via the laminante bonding point. It makes for a deep thorough bond point, with a non-hamonic resonance. You can see why it is a favorite of the luthiers, for repair or manufacturing. Basically, if one was to do a acellerometer based test for laminaite exitation and distortion, the weldbond laminate would likey show up to be the better configuration. Think about it.

A guitar has a tremendous amount of energy going through the body. The sound of that body is largely the major part of it's sound. Imagine if the sound of a given guitar was ruined in the process of repair. Weldbond..does NOT do this. Everytime it is used, the sound of the guitar is maintained and directly comparable to the original designs. This speaks volumes about it's use in speakers.
