Typical!
and of course ****! , ****! ,etc.

Of course, this would make an incredibly smart cut-away to show people what the box looks like on the inside.

Is primer enough on the inside of the cabinet, to prevent damp from affecting the wood?

whats the reasoning for the removable baffle? and are the side slats just there for installing the baffle? or reducing throat volume?

Looks to me he needs sandpaper :-)
Yep, that's the plan. After testing the foam will be removed and the edges sanded with a belt sander for gluing.

I made the speaker baffle removable mainly to make it easier to make changes to the throat and for painting. You could add more baffles to work with differant speakers. I may glue them after testing.

You could paint the inside with something like this:
Everbuild 90805 Everproof DPM 908 5L: Amazon.co.uk: DIY & Tools

No need for primer either and can be used to glue damping materials where necessary.

Hi 4pyros,

"...speaker baffle removable..." Nice touch, that'll allow you to play around with the throat configuration. Great to see you making progress.

Regards,

Take care how and where you attach the removable baffle.
You can easily make for an impossibly awkward tool access.
I've done that stupidly when I thought I was being careful.

I sunk metal threads into the wood for repeat abuse, but
neglected to angle them away from the sides enough to
get a power tool in there. Now having to use hex wrench
with very short handle... Almost no room for fingers.
Don't make the same mistake!

Maybe a pocket hole jig could help?
