Chalugadp 1099 Curved CC Build

Well I couldn't sleep tonight so I played around with sketchup for the design I wanted. I usually like to have something unique so I changed the top curve a bit from dtsdig. I will be using paperback veneer and here are a couple of veneer options with the design

Birch

Mahogany

I still have a couple of weeks before I order the veneer from here
http://www.glveneer.com/gallery.html...v=0801GL551335

I will have the usual pics as well as some video clips. I'm building this at home so no tablesaw. Using 3/4" MDF for most of it and 1/8" MDF (6 layers) for the top. I will video the bending of the top and glueing, the flush trimming of tricky parts,veneer process, and the final look of everything just before installing drivers.

I'm watching everyone else's 1099 build as well. My order was a few days ago so it should arrive next week. I won't create top until it arrives and I can place interior divides. I ordered baffle with no roundover and I just build box 1/16" to 1/8" smaller in length and height so I can flush trim the baffle.

Cool design, will be very interesting once built. Are you planning a similar curve to the mains or something more traditional?

This will be awesome. You always do great "educational/learn by watching me do it first, threads".

Could I request an addition to the curriculum ?

I think it would be awesome if you could document the crossover assembly, either with pics or a video. This would be super helpful.

Also, just as an FYI in case it helps you out, with your own crossovers....

In the "1099 3 way design " thread by tux, some one posted these awesome pictures of completed cross overs and then superimposed the wiring from the underside of the crossover. This was an awesome idea, and I think it might of been posted by fourm member, Anthony Gomez.

I'll search around later if i have time, and post the image here.

Looks good, Chalugadp! I'll be interested to see how you glue up the curves.
Also, just a heads up, the width between the edge of the port holes and the edge of the baffle is only 3/4" so be careful about how far undersized you construct the box. Taking much more than 1/16" off the baffle edges could cause interference with the ports and the box sides, if that makes any sense. The good news is that the ports are slightly tapered so even if the box sides are pushed in a bit, the ports should still fit.
Take lots of pics along the way! 😃

Weird look for my taste but this is about what YOU like so go for it.

When are you going to start the build?

Welcome to the 1099 club and wait till a few months go by listening to them.

My Build Thread

Yeah I remember those little ports being a tight fit. Will make the box 1/16" total smaller. Good point

that's going to be one awesome looking center channel. How will you cut the double curve?

Thanks.
Double curve done this way. Cut ends and middle support all with same profile. I will cut first with jigsaw, and sand to smooth to final look. Then router next 3 identical with flush trim bit.

Then install them with bottom and back. Bevel back to match angle of curve. I will use 1/8" MDF that you can bend with your hands to match the profile. Probably do 2-3 pieces at a time and glue. Use ratchet straps to hold down in place like dtsdig.

The point of the curve is just to prove your wood working skills are "god mode" ? lol. Looks good. I'd be scared to try that just for aesthetic reasons, but I envy you. I'm looking forward to the final results.

I'm good but I don't have "the touch". I've taught 5000 kids woodwork and only three had the touch. Every cut perfect, just so natural. One kept with it and he is doing high end commercial woodwork. The point of the curve is looks, and doing this on my deck with basic tools will show others that its not magic. Way tougher to understand polar plots and pi spacing then this.

I like wood working. But my main problem is a space to do it. That's why I am building a garage! (and theater on top)

My dad has three garages, three sheds, and a barn. He's down the street so I just go there to do all my work, but it's a pain still.

My deal with wife to build the theater as part of our remodel project was she gets walk in closet. I said ok, show me what you want. She starts cutting out pictures of gisele bundchen's closet and showing me closets on that houswives of beverly hills show. I laughed. It's like a $60k closet. haha. I have a feeling I'll be brushing up on my trim and wood work skills on that, with raise panel cabinet doors and all the good stuff. She even wants back lit LED on her shoe rack

How are you doing the bevel on the back to match the curve? What are you cutting it with, and more importantly, how did you figure out the necessary bevel angle to match up perfectly with the curved sides?

Hey, Marty. I'm not sure how Chalugadp did his but on my curved builds, I just use an angle finder on the back of the curved edge and then transfer the angle to my saw. Pretty easy.

I will just use a block plane. Did it with another curved build. Takes 2 minutes. Just take about 5-10° off at a time.

that's pretty cool donny.


spacing on that top port and the compression driver has been double checked?


couple random concepts.





rear ported. :-)





that black line is simply to highlight the profile. i bet that you would get some takes for kits on the rear ported version.
