Amazing work. Maybe I should fire up my CNC as well and let the sawdust fly.

Jeff, you might want to calculate weight and think again about paying for shipping these when sqrivi tires of them. Just rent a U-haul and make a road trip of it.


sqrivi - brilliant craftmanship and aesthetics

I like these a lot, aren't cnc machines great I am thinking of putting mine to work on some speakers as well. I can only imagine how many sheets of MDF went in to this.

In fact I don't want to, tell us, please

I don't remember how many sheets this took. I do remember the place I had the CNC work done charged less than what I determined I could by the MDF for to do it myself. Their core business is building vehicle specific subwoofer boxes so they buy sheets of MDF by the truck load and pay a lot less per sheet than I would.

It's not often a place will do something with a cnc for less than you can do by hand so you did well there!

well, it's been a while but I will be delivering these to the painter this week. We are going to do some samples first to make sure of the colors and finish. I think I have decided to go mirror high gloss finish on the wood inserts and black with a satin finish on everything else. I will post more pics as things progress.

Do you use ane EQ in the range 100-300hz. I'm affaraind there is a gab in response between the drivers. IMHO sub shouldn't be downfiring if the OB is not reaching down to at least 150hz.

Approx 38" x 18" allows the 1808 to reach 150hz before dropping rapidly. There are other factors but this is what XLBaffle shows on my quick sim.
