MDF sliced to perfection is still a fail. If you want something done properly, do it yourself. Sadly, I don't have a table saw in Barcelona :-p

First time, and hopefully last, that I get someone else to cut my MDF for me. Cheap enough, though. Though not cheap, like I'm used to. <3 cover sheets.

Need to get a jigsaw or router now...

Then it's just assemble time.

Fred.

Jigsaw obtained! Wife dispatched to another city for three days. It's time to make some mess :-)

I have one tweeter hole, and one hangover. Both are excellent, as was the wine, and jigsaw. And nearly-burned-it-while-shooting-shit spag. More holes later, but first, water!

Four holes made, one while drunk, three while sober and hung over, all with press fit accuracy :-)

It's assembly time now! But first, I have to clean the house, it's trashed. Like someone threw a party. I guess I did, just forgot to invite everyone over so it was only me partying.

Time for some chores :-( Might get to do some assembly tomorrow, or later tonight.

Fred.

House is still trashed...

But have three of the driver mountings done, and beveled the back sides of the front panels where appropriate, etc.

More tomorrow, hopefully some pics. 150 to sift through of various things :-)

Fred.

Managed to fix the house before the Mrs got home :-)

Got quite a bit done by then, and since then, too.

Teaser time!

IMO Sexy as! :-)

And yes, that IS 26 visible fasteners in the front panel! :-)

Down to the easy part now! Have the tops and bottoms screwed on, wires soldered in, terminals on backs. Just need to cut 8 pieces of pine for the corners on top and bottom/sides, drill a lot, screw a lot, and glue anechoic shaped foam into the walls. Then it's just screw in the drivers and enjoy.

Secret: I'm already enjoying one anyway. The sides are held on with gravity and some heavy stuff on top, laying down sideways.

Hoping to fully complete both tomorrow. Currently powered from sliced off wire from old Hama CS-482 PC speakers. Put the scope on and drove into clipping and they're putting out about 4W RMS into the original speakers or 2W RMS into my new ones. Not really enough, but decent, for now. Might try to bulk up caps in hama power supply as a temp measure :-p

Fred.

One is finished! Might try to get the other humming tomorrow too, or not. Depends how I get on with all of my other chores...

Stereo sound FTW!

Powered by the mighty Hama amp, crossed over nakedly at 6db/oct, phase inverted tweeters, 6kg water bottle fasteners in use on the left channel LOL.
