Finally bought a house this past May, and I got the greenlight from wifey to start this build. I had originally planned on going with one of Bill Fitzmaurice's designs, but was convinced that a Marty design would be better for my purposes after reading up on reddit and this forum. Pretty close to being finished so thought I'd share my progress so far. Big shout out to chalugadp and LTD02 whose many posts on this forum were essential guidance during this build process. Also a shout out to rec head and Sekosche who also posted very detailed build threads of their own that served as a great roadmap.
I have no experience in speaker building and only very rudimentary experience in any sort of woodworking, but my friend has a great workshop in his basement and agreed to help with this build process.
My parts list:
2 sheets of oak-veneer plywood
Dayton Reference 460HO-4 18" driver
iNuke 3000DSP amp
12" AWG wire and neutrik connectors
4 x 4" feet (I think oak)
Gorilla glue caulk, Elmers spray adhesive, foam padding, pocket hole & drywall screws
Not sure how to get images to show up in this post without them appearing huge, so I'm just going to post the imgur album link here:
(If there's some obvious step I'm missing let me know and I'll edit this post to embed the pictures)
Next steps are to mount the speakon post, actually test out the driver, add the feet and start the finishing process! Planning on adding coffee-colored trim to cover the screw heads, light sanding, then a few coats of varnish. Will post again once some more progress is made.
