I don't know why I'm building these except that I don't have anything 'finished'. All my speakers are test boxes with half done XO'ers and robbed of parts.
I wanted these light weight, because I don't know how I'll use them. They will probably even see some PA use. Ya, not exactly ideal, but might be fun.
Celestion FTR12-3070C x 2
The second woofer will be in a second box and I plan to make it somehow optional. Not sure how the XO will work for that.
Rip the maple veneer plywood to width
Dado the backside with a 3/4" stack
My son interrupted me already and wanted to do some bowl turning.
Cross cut to within 1/2" of final dimensions
Setup the cross cut sled for mitres
Use a stop block to get equal lengths
Gonna biscuit join for strength on that mitre, so I test it on some scrap MDF. If I screw up these mitres, this rather overpriced plywood has been wasted, although I could do corner infills out of walnut or something.
I wanted to veneer with this birdseye maple, but barely didn't have enough, even if I didn't veneer the bottoms.
