Minion and Fusion-8 ports are actually different from the 1099. They do not fit the same holes.

Erich, When I got my 1099's I had a missing port (which you sent to me) and temporarily used one from my Fusion 8 kit and they are identical to me.

I know, I just wanted to make Mr. Chalugadp nervous for a minute or two being that he already cut the port holes in his speaker.

You ruined the fun!

Who has time for supper when there's a speaker to build?

Congrats on your new acquisition--it's gonna be awesome.

Put in the foam



I like this spray adhesive

Cheaper then 3m and the nozzle is better.
Then cut the block for the front port

Not a perfect fit but will be good after a little fill.

Tomorrow should get all ports filled, and get baffle on with blocks on the back . That leaves me time to mail the xo to tux.

Where did you get the foam?

Also, I'm thinking about using an oil based satin black paint on my baffle and then using veneer for the sides. I like cherry wood. What is the cheapest veneer you would use for a cherry stain?

I have been so busy that I haven't had a chance to open my 1099's yet. I'm hoping I can get started on the crossovers overs tomorrow though.

Foam from ebay. 35$ for 4' by 8'.
Cherry veneer is cheap and nice. Maple as well.

So dumb question... If I bought cherry veneer, would I still need to stain it?

I think cherry veneer looks great with natural watco oil. There is cherry watco oil for a darker look. Thats what I am going to use for mine . Then put poly it lacquer on top bandit looks great. I don't want super gloss for mine. Just a nice low sheen.


Number 1,2,3,4,9(phone pad)
All work great.

Chalugadp, the center compartment for the mids and CD should be filled with polyfil from what Tux has said. You may want to check with him about just using foam in there. Looking good!

^ that's fine. The only thing I was worried about looking at it, is if there's enough room for the mids right near the front. Donny might just have to cut a bit away.

That is open cell foam right? It needs to be the stuff that you can easily squish and breath through.

I don't mean to derail this great build but I have a quick question. Why is foam used instead of Owens Corning 703 or Roxul Rockboard 60?

Either is fine. Only think I'd be worried about with a hard insulation is reflections off the surface of the insulation because the frequencies are high. The foam Donny is using has a nice irregular surface to it.

I agree with Donny, no need to stain Cherry unless you want a certain colour. Actually, no need to stain any type of wood unless you want a certain color. But certainly cherry is already nice. Oil like boiled linseed oil followed by lacquer, or like Donny suggested = great look results. Heck, even just several coats of tung oil look good on cherry. Talk about easy.

Cherry will slightly darken with UV exposure and time, so beware of that.

I think people confuse stain with finish. Stain isn't a finish. Every wood needs a finish. Stain is something used to achieve a desired look of the finish. Quite different.

Been building on my deck for last 6 weeks. Probably cut a dozen subs there. Gets hot in the middle of the day. Only a 9' drop [emoji48]
Looks like I might be selling this place and moving closer to Joe . The house 10 minutes away from me is 90,000 less for comparable place. If I do then I have to put up a railing.

Plugs glueing



Once you have first one to fit then flush trim the rest off of that template .

Once glue dries I will attach the baffle. Then fill and sand smooth. Tomorrow I go to pj white to get veneer. I was going to order online but I have had good success with pj veneer. It has a thicker amount of wood then most. Will choose a light color veneer.

Does PJ white sell paper back veneer ? We don't have them on the island. If they do I'll have to remember to pick some up when I'm over there next time.

Yes they have about 20-25 choices. Really nice quality. They don't carry really exotic stuff. My xo is xpost on its way to you.

Did the filling in 2 minutes.

$3 a tube and super easy to put on with putty knife.

Attaching the baffle in about 30 minutes. Crappy weather today so working under overhang .
