Official Elusive 1099 Speaker Thread
General information and instructions for the Elusive 1099 assembly.
Build Tips (more will be added):
1: You should predrill the mdf for screw holes before installing the woofers, mids, and waveguide. Sit the woofer in the cutout and mark the holes with a pen, pencil, etc. Remove the part and drill your holes. I use a 7/64" bit, but a 1/8" bit does fine.
2: You get three pieces of gasket tape with your kit. The 2 small ones are for the midranges, the larger one is for the waveguide. I always put the gasket directly on the back of the waveguide and midrange flanges, some people like to put the gasket on the mdf instead. Just peel a small section of the white paper away from the gasket tape to expose the sticky part. Then slowly push it around the perimeter of the waveguide flange and just work your way around the part.
3. The easiest place to install your crossover is in the midrange compartment.
4. The ports just get lightly tapped into place until they are snug up against the front panel. Some people put caulking behind them but it's not necessary.
5. When putting the screws in your woofers use a piece of wood, or your hand to protect the woofer in case your screw driver slips. You'll feel much better with a scratch on your hand than a hole in your woofer.
