The Speakers are Finally Finished!!
I wanted to post the link to my flickr site again, since I have finally finished the speakers and subwoofer. I ended up using an ambrosia maple veneer, solid maple planks, and other maple woods, a bit of red oak veneer, and a bit of walnut for banding and trim. I think the end result is very rewarding. I believe that the finish may actually do justice to the quality of the sound of the kit. maybe. I just finished today, so I still am seeing all my mistakes.
I also used the veneer glue that RAW suggested which worked fantastic. No comparison to using regular wood glue with the oak for the previous speakers that I built. I built the subwoofer as an upward firing design with a table top separated by copper plumbing couplers. The reason I made the sub top firing is to help reduce the transient vibrations and floor resonances, since i still live in an apartment. The bottom of the sub is very well reinforced, and the sub is sitting on a cement block separated by foam strips, all to help reduce the amount of vibrations that get transferred directly to the skull of my downstairs neighbor. I believe I am still making enemies considering the majority of my woodworking was done in my apartment!!
Anyways, Just wanted to say once again, thanks to everyone who posted and offered advice, and also a big thanks to Bob for everything.
please let me know what you all think of the finished product. and, also, if you are in the Edmonton neighborhood and would like to have a listen, just send a message.
