ok built some speaker rings today, came out aright. also threw together an amp rack but couldnt find dads circular saw so had to use a 20 yera old jig saw that cut horribly. o well will just have to use lots of wood filler and sanding then paint it so it looks good :D

btw speaker is sunk into the ring about half an inch, the grill is huge might have to change it up dont like it much this way, maybe bottom mount speaker i dunno

did you turn out your tweeter rings on a lathe? It seems to me that would be the easiest, safest, and most efficient way of doing rings that small.

You do really great work.

awesome work man.

heres the box, i need to paint it still. roughly 3.5 cubes after displacement and all tuned to 34 hertz, it is also a double faced front

al the white stuff smeared on it is filler to fill all the screw holes and stuff.

no critisism? aww was wondering how my work was, whatd o you guys think of my first box?

05-14-2006, 01:12 AM
that looks sick, get more pics of the box and amp rack, how the hell did you make those tweeter rings so perfect with a router?

05-14-2006, 12:08 PM
i used a circle jig for the tweeter ring, i have access to a lathe might try to make some more complicated things with that, but no need really a simple router works fine.

the amp rack is demolished i blew one of my amps, have to design something new for a new amp.

once the box is painted ill snap some pics, thinking of routering the edges too

Awesome man, even for somebody that's experienced. That's a hell of a job for a first-timer.
