I mounted mine inside the box (on one of the braces), and ran a 4 pole speakon connector to connect the mid and tweeter to the crossover over inside the box.

Looking at the pictures you posted: Take a long clamp going from the top of the cabinet to the bottom of the cabinet and put the pad of the clamp half way on the baffle section that is sticking out, and halfway on the panel it needs to flush up with. As you tighten the clamp it will pull those pieces together. If you do that on the right and left side of the cabinet, it will square it up. After you do that to make sure it works okay, unclamp, add glue, then reclamp to square up the cabinet and obviously lightly clamp the baffle on from front to back as well.



If that's not easy to understand, I'll try to draw some pictures or explain it with more detail.


Okay got the to big claps going to attempt to fix this

If you haven’t glued it yet, try running a single clamp diagonal corner to corner. Put the pads completely below the baffle. It should pull it all the way back in.

I did it already thanks for the advise tho. It’s more tolerable now. But going to buy the trimming bit for the router hopefully it’s helps even more

Flush trim bits do a nice job. Makes finishing much easier.

Yup, as long as your router takes 1/2 shank bits. Otherwise need the same thing with 1/4 shank.

Not really, just keep the router squared up on the panel. Super easy to use a flush trim.

BTW, didn't see anyone mention, but the K2 amp is waaaayyyy overkill for these high efficiency speakers. No need for anything that powerful, you'll NEVER push the speakers that hard.

Several Titan owners have used solid 200wpc amps with high praise. If you're running active, I believe you can benefit from higher power amps for the LF driver with a HPF applied.

Did you use brad nails? Could be wrong but it looks like a chunk of your flush bit blade broke off. Might have been going too fast. Be careful using the bit in future might fail completely.
