Alright here are some pictures to prove that I haven't been totally slacking over the last couple weeks.
Here is a picture of a couple mid-tunnels glued up
Here is the baffle being glued for one of the mains.
Here is the base to the L&R speakers. The original plans called for a plain looking base. I took some design liberties and tried to make them look a little more pleasant.
Here is the main with the braces and mid-tunnels all glued up. Somehow my braces got glued up somewhat crooked...oh well, it will be hidden by the front baffle.
Here is the back being glued onto the center speaker. In the background you can see the front baffles for the L&R speakers leaning against their respective cabinets.
This is the center channel showing the mid-tunnel and bracing. The mid tunnel hole still needs to be routed.
Center with the front baffle set in place.
This final picture shows the back of the center channel with the port set in and the mid-tunnel hole also cut. I later went back and made a relief cut to let the port set flush with the back of the cabinet.
So thats where I am sitting right now. I need to make some relief cuts on the back side of the speakers so they can "breathe" which helps with the sound quality.
I have not decided how I am going to finish these yet. At some point they are going to get stuck behind an acoutically transparent screen to never be seen, they may just get a spray can coat of black paint to reduce the glare. If I ever decide to finish them later, that paint shouldnt be too much of a pain to veneer over.
The crossovers are going to limit my progress soon. There were some backordered components from Erse so I had to decide if I wanted to wait until the end of October to get the parts or order them from somewhere else. I ended up cancelling the order for the backordered parts and ordering from PE. The rest of the parts should be in by the end of next week.
I also need to install insulation and foam and binding posts, so there is plenty to keep my busy.
On a side note, I will be busy Sunday thru Tuesday (and hopefully next Saturday) at the Boone Supernationals. I pit for a guy that races in the sport mod division. The supernationals is the "super bowl" of dirt track racing - I am super excited.
Here is a picture of his car this year. 2010 Harris chassis. My buddy only has a couple of wins this season, but usually seems to run near the front.
