Hello all. Thought I'd start this since I'm just about finished.
Popped for some clamps from HF. Grabbed some Titebond III and went to work:
Not meaning to, but a cursory "annoitment"
Found some Masonite/hardboard laying about and utilized Matt's XOver layout. Fudged it a bit a made it a bit bigger. Little did I know I screwed myself with the leads coming up short in places. Chalk it up to a rookie mistake:
All wired up. I was meaning to use terminal blocks, but the spacing didn't pan out...
... and the back:
The cabinet was dead simple to assemble. The crossover, not so much. I know my way around a soldering iron (from hard, volt-modding video cards way back), but this was another animal. Not bad, just a bit nerve-racking.
Didn't want to pop for a Forstner bit, so a went with a 2" hole saw and only went 1/8" deep. Followed with a spade bit for the central hole. Will remove the excess to flush mount the Neutrik connector.
Stuffed with Ultratouch. Not coincidentally, the 15" wide R13 perforations just matched the spacing between the horizontal bracing in this cabinet. Nice planning, Erich!
Finish will likely be Restore 4X, but I may hold off for a while until I give these a good run-in.
These will be done next weekend.
You and Greg are MORE than welcome to come for a listen, seeing as how hospitable you both were during the sub GTG! Should be simple to EQ with the NanoAVR.
