Assembly Tip: Polyfil vs foam lining. Sealed enclosures vs ported enclosures

IN GENERAL, line ported, stuff sealed.

Assembly Tip: Assembly Video

Search Youtube for "SEOS Flat pack build."

I used this video to do my Seos 10 Pures. It was helpful to see the sequence of how to start, how to finish, etc. It was also interesting to see how much glue to use. This is one of the best DIY videos on Youtube.

I have a quick question in regards to setting up my Volt 10 angled flat pack. how the HELL do you guys get the clamps to grip the sides and top bottom of the flatback to get them to clamp to the "back" board? because of the angled cuts my clamps literally just slide right off. I can get one on the highest side sometimes, but my bar clamps for anywhere else just slip off.

these are the clamps I'm using

I glued a side to the "back" board and had to do 2 quick emergency screws on the back of the back board in place of clamps since they all just slipped off down the slope of the angle

Those cheaper clamps might have hard plastic which can slide around pretty easy. Put a layer of duct tape or something like that over the clamp's feet and it probably won't slide as much. Or any type of thin rubber, rag, etc on the panel and clamp over that so it won't slide.

I found an super easy way tip the flat pack and rest the smaller edge on somthing so that the face is flat and level Place glue and rest baffle in place then set a 5 gallon bucket filled with sand on top the weight is more then enough to clamp the face.

I had to glue, tape, and nail gun my Volt 10's. I too tried the "tip to level baffle trick."

I still had lots of sanding and spackling.

I have a question about the 1099 flat pack. I assembled the flat pack and dry fit the baffle.

The bracing seems to overlap the cutout for the mids. Is it supposed to line up like this?

I included a pic.

I noticed the same thing. The mids still fit fine.

Sorry I missed that post. Yes, that's the way it's suppose to look. The midrange chamber needs to be the same volume whether it's vertical or a horizontal center channel. The only way to do that and keep the same enclosure size is to hit a 'happy medium' on that internal divider. It's close, but works as it should.
