Considering I will begin my venture today, I figured it was time to start a thread. Hopefully I will remember to take more pictures of the process than I did with my subs lol.

Nothing fancy with the design, just a standard cabinet with target dimensions of 36.25" x 12.5" x 15.5" (Double front baffle) when completed with round over edges and finished in some Duratex.

Went with 3 vertical towers instead of having a center. Theater isn't finished yet but when it is they will be going behind the screen. For now I will lay one on its side.

Here goes nothin!

Mostly would have been pictures of me moving stuff and cleaning up a work space today. Lots of toys needed to be moved and stored for the summer.

I did get the panels cut for the 2nd baffle and backs. Have to go pick up a few things for the router and odds and ends, but I will continue tomorrow. Hopefully get the holes cut in the 2nd baffle, sides cut, along with the braces. Don't know if I will get the enclosures assembled, but I at least want to get the rabbits into the front and back for the sides and braces. If I make it there I will be fine with that progress.

I hurt my shoulder on Friday, so things are a little slow going with these panels. Luckily the old man is around to help me out a bit.

Also, a few questions for some of the current owners.

Got some weather stripping with the kit and can think of many uses, but not sure the specific use it has within this kit. Lol

Next question. Where did you get your terminals for the crossovers? The screw down type that the drivers connected directly to.

I assumed that it was for making my own gasket for the waveguide, but it is a bit short for that, so now I am not sure.

Barrier strips...I got mine from Parts Express.

The gasket should fit around the back side of the waveguide unless it was cut too short. To get caught up, I had a friend helping me get things together to package those 1099's when the shipping boxes finally came in. He counted out the screws, cut the gasket tape, and wrapped up the midwoofers. I've got specific lengths cut for each waveguide to be used as a cutting template. Hopefully he used the correct one that says SEOS-10. rolleyes.gif If it doesn't fit, let me know and I'll mail you some.

If you guys think those terminal strips are a must for this design, I can always buy some and put them in with the kit so you don't have to order and pay shipping from PE.

Awesome, thanks for the info! The terminals would be a nice touch, but I don't think they are necessary. I just like the clean look. (Not that i'll ever see them again once they are done lol)

The piece I got was a bit short - it is enough to do about 3/4 of the waveguide. There is no need to send another piece, though...I have plenty hanging around from other projects...smile.gif

I agree with HoG...nice touch, but not necessary. Everyone might have a different idea of how to handle those connections. But if they are commonly used in other XO designs, then maybe having them available on your site separately would be nice...the way you have speaker terminals. If someone wants them, then just add them to the order kind of thing.

Do you by any chance have a way to measure the length of that piece?

The piece I have is 25" - By my calculations, I need 30", though I have not actually installed the waveguide yet.

Problems with the vehicle today that needed to be fixed, along with family festivities resulted in nothing getting done during the day. I did just finish with the layout of the crossovers though. laid out, glued down, have to wait for my wire and barrier terminals to finish them up. I used fatshafts layout and saved the cool image of the crossover wiring diagram with the values over top of the items for future soldering reference. Cabinet work will begin again next weekend.

Well, had some time during the hockey game to fiddle with one of the crossovers. For never building one before it was quite an interesting and frustrating experience lol but alas! I tested it out, and it seems to sound pretty good without a cabinet!

Routing my double baffles now, gotta run the rabbit cuts into the panels then I'll start gluing.

Anyone have recommendations for how much poly-fill I should use per cabinet?

2 all done and glued up. Finishing the 3rd next weekend, then time to fill, sand, and lay on the duratex. I'll be finding MDF dust in every crevice for the next month >_>

The amount of clamps on them made it hard to actually see the speaker cabinet itself lol. When I finish up the 3rd and take the clamps off next weekend I'll snap some pics before I fill and sand them.

After finishing my 15in ultimax sub cabinets with it, I definitely want to make a love child with it. I love this stuff!

Looks great! Don't forget to throw some black spraypaint in the driver recesses so that you don't see any slivers of mdf in the cracks.

Good point! I just installed the crossovers and drivers in one, don't see any MDF bleed through. I'll do it on the next two though for sure. This thing sounds awesome biggrin.gif
