Could you recommend someone in Europe who could CNC all the pieces of my own subwoofer design (Solidworks) without it costing an arm and a leg? It's a one-off custom project for my own HT.

It’s a pretty serious piece requiring a few advanced cuts, going by what a few friends ‘in-the-know’ have told me, so I don’t know what kind of machine is required - although in my world, it’s basically just a “simple box” with no rocket science involved. But OK, the bracing is pretty brutal, so if Apollo 13 had been as structurally sound they would probably never have had their “Houston, we have a problem” moment… 😉

Here’s a link to the design (HTML eDrawings). Use right-click for options like removing or isolating pieces:

Subwoofer_assSplit_200617.html

I’m open to suggestions from anywhere in EU or the UK as long as the cost is competitive to justify the shipping cost.

Thanks. Have sent them an email but a bit confusing when there is no option to view their website in English. Would be a natural fit though since the enclosure will be hosting Italian drivers

I don't think the design is particularly complex. If you cut the 'triangular' braces the same size as the front and back panels you end up with mostly squarish brace panels with 4 windows cut in each. It would be fairly easy to design this to make the square brace panels the same size and make a template to route them from. (I'd probably rough cut with a jigsaw and finish with router)

Don't know if you have a tablesaw but if yes that would make it even easier.

Cheers,
Rob.

Way back when I had access to a laser cutter I built these midbass boxes. I think I could do them by hand now, just takes more time..

3-axis CNC router probably enough if you make angled vertical cuts and chamfers manually out of a flat surface. 5-axis router services are horribly expensive.

Thanks, Rob. Those boxes are beauties

I've had help doing the 3D CAD and there's not really any flexibility in changing the design from this point onwards tbh. Sure, the roundovers on the bracing windows aren't necessary, acoustically or optically, but were more an OCD thing (of the variety we all suffer...) and I guess there might be some other features that could be left out if just a PITA.
