The pure power of it and the price. And i've never had a built that used a 15". Just seemed interesting and the results i've seen drew my in quick.

Use a finer saw blade then it won't splinter at all.

We went down and bought a nice new blade, and it does quite a bit. Even the thin thin jigsaw blade made it splinter. I figure the pl will fill these in so no worries.

The Table Tuba is based on an 8" or 10" driver. Are you building the "Tuba Home Theater"?

when you were talking of bad splintering and someone else said it should be smooth cutting, then I started reading another HTH build thread and they said it was great to work with I wondered....


sounds like you have my luck!

You can just change the name of this one. Click Edit on the first post, and then Go Advance. Now edit the title box.

If you have already cut everything out just go ahead and finish it. Consider it a test run. You will be able to build a better enclosure the second time around anyway later on (in a few months, years, whenever...) with what you will learn on this one.

I searched around for prices and birch or grade A plywood is 20 bucks more a sheet! Is it worth it. Whats so bad about using the stuff i have?

The 15/32" Arauco plywood at my local Lowes is $22.00 a sheet. I thought that was reasonable .
