Yep, and I also used a bead of pl400 on the inside to ensure it's air tight.

I'd use PL over titebond, that stuff is invincible, and it expands.


PL is fine for sealing... but it will fail as a strictly wood glue... you don't see carpenters using that stuff...

What are your plans for finish? What can you do protect the driver cones if you have kids? I guess you can make a beefy grill how do you keep a homemade grill from rattling?


Looking good so far though

Not correct. PL Premium especially is some of the best glue for wood that is available. It is also very good for for MDF and end grain because it is not water based so it will not wick.


The downsides are that it is pricey and hard to clean up. I have used it without gloves and had it on my had for several days.

LOL



Nice work there buddy...


Its been a while since I made sawdust - I'm getting the itch again...



Get some good heavy duty magnets and sink them for a magnetic grill before you do the finish work - if your doing grills that is.... Not a big fan of grills myself, and little ones don't really like to mess with the big monsterous vibrating cones all that much...


Best idea for that is - after you finish building them and get them dialed in, tell the kids to get a close up look at them and then send out some test tones - you'll freak em out so as to never really have to worry about them messing with them....
Does that make me evil...

I'll fill the screw holes with wood putty, sand it down, cover it with an outdoor waterproof primer, then just a flat black latex paint. Nothing fancy.


My 5th child is due in December, but luckily for me the theatre room is downstairs, and kids are not allowed in there without me. Heck, they're not even allowed downstairs without me!

What are you talking about? My friend is a carpenter and loves the stuff. If you PL two 2x4's together, they'll break before the PL gives.

Yeah 2x4"s... No woodworker will ever use PL... You don't build furniture or kitchen cabinets with PL... I am surprised at you guys...

maybe no Canadian woodworker... lol..


There are pluses and minus, although I would really like to see some pull test done pl vs titebond.


I have my suspicions that pl would kick the snot out of titebond.


I think that "woodworkers" may choose titebond due to the ease of cleanup, rather than strength..

You can't mate two pieces of maple with PL.. Pl needs a cushion...


Pl is a construction adhesive ... rough construction like plywood boxes..
