Default FS: CNC cut speaker baffles, cabinets, and other parts

Hi, I am brand new to this forum, but i hang out on a lot of other home and car audio forums. I currently have a small part time buissness producing and selling stealth sub boxes for various cars. However, ordres have been slowing down lately, and this has caused a problem. I rent a CNC router by the hour, but i dont have a whole hours worth of cutting. This either means i waste money, or i miss deadlines waiting on mire orders.

What i am hoping to do is simple cover my material and machine time with various other parts so i can continue to cut out the boxes which i make money on.

What i am offering if from simple spaker baffles, with speaker cutouts and recesses, to fully assebled cabinets, or anything in between.

Pricing is a follows: 6$ sq foot of 3/4" mdf

example 12 x 12 x 12 sub box = 6 square feet = 36$ in parts

assembly is 50% of parts, so the same box would cost 18$ to assemble, but i would round down to a even 50$.

all boxes are dadoes and rabeted together, and i can cut the speakerholes, ports, terminals, ect.

Like i said, not looking to make money, just fill machine time so i can stop losing money until orders pickk back up.

I will be cutting the next batch 10/31/08

OK, well, i had a lot of people interested in the cutting last time, so here it is again.

I will mainly be cutting 3/4" MDF, but possibly 1 1/8" Particle board as well.

I have adjusted my fees to balance out costs of large and small speakers. There where small ones with more maching then larger ones, yet costing only a fraction of the price.

MDF runs $3 square foot, 1 1/8" PB 4$ a square foot

Machining is as follows

Simple Panel: 3$
Single Speaker Baffle: 4 $
Multi Speaker baffle : 5$
Misc ( carving, designs, ect ) ask for quote.

The reason i did this was to make larger spakers more affordable

So, a 12" x 12" x 12" sub box
6 square feet material = 18$
5 panels = 15$
1 single speaker baffle = 6$

total = 39$

Assembly is still 1/2" kit price,
so box assembles is 58$ plus shipping

Now, same box but 18" x 18" x 18"
13.5 square feet material = 40.50$
5 panels = 15$
1 single speaker baffle = 6$

total = 61.50$

Assembly is still 1/2 kit price,
so box assembles is 92$ plus shipping

old pricing would have put the kit at 81 $ and built price at 121.50$


For those wanting pairs, or multipe baffles, I will do a discount, as i am just trying to cover all my programming time.

PM me if you have any questions

I hope you get enough for another batch. Looks good.

You might want to change the numbers under the 18" box, they still say 12"


EDIT: I forgot you will have timed out by now so I did it for you. Hope that's OK.

Also, could you please combine your two signature lines into one, they seem to repeat.

Thank you.

EDIT2: I see you simply added it again and that it's not a double sig line. As Gilda Radner used to say: Never mind.
