Last week I met a guy in Northern Kentucky that offered to make up a bunch of flat pack (aka "knock down") speaker cabinets. His prices seem pretty good. I'd like to get some ideas on what you guys might be interested in. Sort of like a group buy kind of deal......without the need to buy first.
Because the guy lives close enough, I could simply buy 10 of each design and store them myself. Once/if they sell, I'd just go pick up more when you guys needed them.
I was talking to Lilmike about his Anarchy 25hz tapped horn and he thinks it's a great idea to make a knock down kit for it. The pricing to use Baltic birch, cut all driver holes, cut grooves to line up inner panels, dado edges to fit panels together, pilot holes drilled where needed, holes for terminal plates, and of course all panels is coming in around $70, maybe a bit less.(Update)
: Kevin H has agreed to sell his Anarchy woofer for only $65 if you purchase this flat pack.
I've asked the CNC guy about other projects and he said he'll do anything. So if you've got any ideas for different cabinets or baffles, please let me know and I'll get some prices.
Baltic plywood layered baffles?
Econowave cabinets cut for specific waveguides?
I thought the layered baffles might be a neat idea. He could cut the design with large roundovers and simply drill 2-3 pilot holes in each layer that could be lined up with wooden dowels. Stack to the height you needed for whatever subwoofer size you had.
Any other ideas? As long as there's some interest, I'll do it. I just need to know what you want.
