Well, it's complete. Not yet finished, but good for now. The final assembly went smoothly for the most part. A couple boo boos with the veneer... I was leaning toward painting, so it isn't bothering me (too much).All glued up.Walls lined.Gasket.Installed.Problem #1:
The PAPER THIN veneer on the plywood shaved off when I was flush mounting. The worst of this was at the back of one of the sides. I was leaning toward paint anyway, as my tests with wood finish on this veneer were not satisfactory. So in the end, this is a non-issue, thankfully. My initial test of flush trimming didn’t reveal this problem because it was where the side met the top – and the top and bottom were made from a different plywood with a thicker veneer. Live and learn.Problem #2:
The outer layer of the ply chipped in the upper right corner of the baffle.
I'll be amp-limited until Christmas, but powered by a BASH 500, this thing is already a huge improvement over my previous TC-1K/Passive Radiator box. And it looks a lot better.
