Would this be something worthwhile to construct? I have to add thickness to the face to keep the driver from hitting the internal baffle so I'm wondering if this is a better sounding solution than just doubling up the thickness of the front panel.
They work well and solve the depth issue.. I got the idea from looking at Terry Cains beautiful work.. Mine are just flat circles and I know they are not the best, but work ok for me... There are many shapes one could use.. Have fun.. Dave
It's really hard to make a perfect circle with a jigsaw. I did mine that way and they are not perfect but just pass.. You could maybe take your wood to a car audio place and have them whip out a couple circles for you, they do that all the time and have the proper tools etc..
I'd be inclined to not cut into the internal divider, and double up the front ,or make a circle or other baffle shape to help with the depth issue. The extra thickness will not effect the horn path etc.. Dave
Well after sleeping on it, I think I have a good compromise.
The depth of the flush mount is 3/16 in. Thickness of come
MDF or Masonite I have as scrap is the same.
If I make strips and put the strips on the side panels along the length, then place the removed baffle on a flat surface and capped with the cabinet, that should raise up the 3/16th inch, be even and ready to re-glue.
I can't say that I expect a lot of change in performance. And I can continue to use my decorative grille.
