Tried to get some pics of it but it's quite a small difference and it's hard to actually see in a camera pic.
It does seem just a little too big. No matter how I put it on, there is just a tiny "lip" hanging over. It's more of something I can feel with my fingers that it's not completely even than see with a camera.
I was more curious as to if it was normal to have to sand it down until it was even when it was CNC cut but just looking at the difference and not using feel I'm guessing it won't be noticeable. It's my first attempt so just going to let it go and not stress about perfection lol.
It was only going over just a hair. Might take a little to sand down since I only have my hands but whatever.
I put it on and to make matters even worse, it started to shift after I had weights on it. I came back to check a couple times and it was slowly shifting which didn't help but I think it's on straight and I'll just do as you said and sand it down and fill the seams in.
I've never done any of this before so "just fixing it later" is something I don't understand lol. Going to wait for the glue to dry, then do the woofer mounting. Now that I finally have all of the tools to finish this, hoping to be done before dinner time.
While I'm waiting for the glue to dry though I'm curious about the Ultimax Terminals. I just push them down til the hole is showing then feed speaker wire through that correct? I tried to twist them at first to no avail before I tried pushing on them. Don't wanna break it at this point when I only have 13 hours to drill at this point (and a lot of painting I guess if I ever get around to that).
