1099 LCR + Dual Cyclops18 Build

I finally stopped dreaming and pulled the trigger on some new toys over winter break. Took me a while to decide what to build that would also fit in my space. I eventually finalized on the usual... 1099s and two martysub variants (specifically cyclops18)

I decided to build the 1099 cabinets myself to save some $. I've worked with MDF before so I am familiar with the mess it will cause. But it's nothing a nice sunny day outside and a leaf blower can't handle. I did also bought the XO boards to assemble myself.

The three 1099s + two cyclops 18s will take 5 sheets of MDF with very little waste. I purchased my MDF at lowes as opposed to Home Depot. The person cutting the sheets at my Lowes was a lot more accommodating than my local home depot. They probably did 30+ cuts on the 5 sheets of MDF... no extra charge.

haha... yea I have a reciprocating saw already. But it's not so much the size.. as much as the volume. The boxes I can recycle, but all that styrofoam wont fit in there with what I normally put in my garbage bin each week. And if I really want to throw it all away within the same week, I would have to purchase extra garbage stickers from the library which would bother me because I would literally be throwing money away. It wont be too bad. Probably going to need to spread it over 2 or 3 garbage cycles. I'm hoping my speakers will be done by then.

Mainly just showing how much packaging comes with each 1099 set. The boxes were actually a lot smaller than I imagined. I don't know how Erich got all those parts for the 1099 AND all that foam inside the box. I had a hard time putting things back in the box without the styrofoam. Erich must be a tetris master.

Make sure you contain that. Mine was loose in the can and my garbage man dumped about half of it onto my neighbors yard. I was out there with a hundred feet of extension cord and a wet/dry vac vacuuming the grass.

Spent the little time I had today to trim down all the pieces to its exact measurements since I had lowes add 1/8th of an inch to the dimensions just in case. Most of that is done except for the larger pieces that don't fit on my table saw. I'll have to clean those up with the circular saw later on.

These are the left overs pieces. I used a little of it to make a quick stand to help assemble the cross overs.

Crossovers are only hot glued right now. I'll double check the layout again in a few days to make sure nothing is wrong before I solder them.

I had a little bit of set back the past 3-4 weeks but I finished the build over the weekend. I do wish I had access to a router for the baffle but I managed with a jig saw.

My plans started from this thread:
DIYSG LCR + 2x Sub Advice

and this is what it looks like now:

http://www.avsforum.com/forum/attach...mentid=2023873

http://www.avsforum.com/forum/attach...mentid=2023881

I still need to construct a small shelf to hold the receiver/amp and to elevate the center and to clean up the wiring.

I won't have a chance to REW the setup for a while but it's already a huge difference going from an 8" sub + klipsch promedia LCRs to this.
