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.

Both speakers done hooked them up to XMC-1 and XPA-2 and not so happy. I though I was going to have the same smile on my face as I did with my 1099s. 1099s I was using denon 4311ci and XPA-2 and loved it. But I’m not sure if it’s the XMC-1 that I’m not liking or just the speakers. Sound very harsh on some music. No life to the sound. Just blah. I have Dirac live full I’m going to run and see if that helps. The room I have them in is much smaller then the room I had 1099s and I’m going to try the denon with them.

Yeah, I would not panic yet. Different room and setup. There were many changes than just speakers. Take your time, you will figure it out. Make sure the crossover and all connections are correctly wired too.

Will do MK good to hear from you again. I’m going to work with them for a while I have DIRAC hope that can help some. Then placement and stuff. I will look over the crossovers again to make sure can also my ears being use to what I been hearing. So a little “break in time”. Thinking I need a amp with more juice they sound like they are running out of steam sometimes. But we shall see.

Keep us posted, I like the idea of swapping in your denon just to setup everything like before since you were used to it. The room changing will be the biggest factor though. Going to bed, will check up tomorrow.

Good morning, Take your time and enjoy the process. I am running a completely DIY room, I just built a new room, speakers, and subs. Also treatments and speaker grills, they are all in wall.

my avatar is the front wall. Just two RE XXX 18 drivers that kick serious butt. 5 of my speakers have a 12 and the rest have a 10. Nothing crazy, just reference capable . The two drivers are impressive though. My thread is Theater 10.0. It shows some measurements and pics of the build process. My computer won’t let me take sweeps of the center or any surrounds so I have that to figure out.

So I ran Dirac with the xmc-1 but still not crazy about the sound. It seems very harsh to me on some material esp with the volume a little hot. Then after I shut everything down and came back to give my self a break I turned of the XMC-1 and now it won’t load and just gets stuck on the “rethink high end”. So I replaced it with my 4311ci for now to have something but haven’t done any listening with it to compare. But now I have to send out this unit back to emotiva and wait prob 2 weeks to get it back. I think the sound that I’m not liking has to do more with the speakers then the XMC-1. I definitely miss my 1099s and wish I never sold them. If they take my XMC-1 back which I don’t think they will I will use that money and might buy my 1099s.

Hurry up and test the denon on your speakers to make sure it is the speakers then you could go from there. I personally never liked the sound of Emotiva, I always preferred outlaw, I wish they made an Atmos processor. My favorires were Krell, ADA, and Meridian which outlaw reminds me of those.

Just stereo, try the Outlaw 975, you can get one for around $200. It sounds excellent.
