I plan on building some Econowave speakers with JBL 2226's using this curved method again. All of the parts should be here later next week. This DIY stuff is rather addictive.
lmao, Im working on my wave project but Im still figuring out the drivers and I have the NHT VR-3 project still to do first. The Econowave should be a great one!!
Im actually going with the MDF bending method for a couple of projects. 3/4" MDF, with cuts 5/8" deep ever Y inches for X inches. Ddegree of bend will determine X and Y inches, that is unknown to me still, I must experiment. All "Slits" made from the table saw will have loads of glue in them and I will bend around a pre-made frame so I form the correct shape. All good in theory!
Similar to what Zaph did in one of his builds and Im follow several bending MDF links I found online.
