Uh sir, that's what this thread is here for......minus the "serious dough" portion. That's up to the CNC guy. We're just trying to get a good list of proven designs and price it out.
At some size point, shipping likely won't make sense. Anything larger than Bills TH is going to be very heavy and need a really large box. Aren't those side panels 36"x36" or so? Flat packed they would be about 40"x40", maybe 12"-15" tall and about 100lbs. If you go with a slim design, I assume that means you straighten out a fold, so then you have a really long box. I'm not sure which would be cheaper to ship.
As mentioned, this guy seems to be priced good, and I'm meeting with him Tuesday to give the go ahead on the 6.5" model. I think an 8" model would probably compete too close with the 6.5". It might make sense to just jump up to 10", or maybe that 9"x12" Tang Band subwoofer?
If Bill's cabinets can be done with 1/2" plywood and bracing, then I'm guessing we should be okay with the 10" and 12" range to use 1/2". I should ask about regular birch plywood and see if that lowers the pricing down on the bigger TH's.
I'm no designer, but I promise, I'll get the cabinets made.
If anyone would like to give me a heads up on the typical size needed for the Econowave style speakers, I'll draw it up. If anyone is good at Sketch Up, go nuts and draw it up better than my paper/pencil sketches!
That would really help everyone out.
I've been given the green light on the Overnight Sensations from Paul on the PE site.
