Hey all. Here is my build thread of 2 Marty Cubes using Ht18d2's and a Behringer NU6000DSP. We made a lot of progress today! Worked at my Dad's as he has all the right tool and has been a general contractor in construction for 30+ years. I have all the stuff needed to complete the project. I had a couple questions before I get to progress pics:
1. Do you need to use the rubber gasket/surround the HT18's come with? The holes on it don't line up will with the driver and looks like a PITA.
2. For people who built these before, where did you put the speak-on connector?
3. What about feet for the enclosure, just cosmetic?
Any tips/feedback are/is appreciated
More shots tomorrow, as I have put the second baffles on, rounded out the edges of the front/top. I will be filling gaps with bondo, doing any other prep work and paint tomorrow hopefully! Also, foam and speak-on connector go in tomorrow. If time allows, I will drill the driver mounting holes tomorrow. After a test of the amplifier, I will be installing a relay in the amp for my remote trigger chain and replacing the fans in the amp. Thanks to this sub-forum for all the great information.
