First one built. It's for NeedDirections, two 10" TC-7 hybrids. 1.75 cu ft sealed. Turned out fantastic.

Just waiting for speaker box terminals to come, then it will be getting shipped out. :D

Hey that's looking good man. If I were to pay materials and whatnot, would you be able to build a bigger box? I remember at first you were saying nothing >3 cubes or something, but I'll need 3.5-4.5 cubes or so. The thing here is that I'd be able to go pick it up. :).

I'll PM you man :D.

looks solid. i agree on the router. you can start with a cheap rotozip and the circle cutter for it. the "sabre cut" bits cut through 3/4 mdf sufficiently. a little slow for my taste, but they cut pretty nice circles.

thats what i need to do, my holes always look jacked up and the first cut is never big enough so I have to trim it out a bit, but thats better than them being too big and wasting wood

the 99 dollar ryobi plunge router works good too. 1/2 inch shank ftw. skill makes decent tools as well on a budget. the skil worm drive i have is decent for a 50 dollar saw.

exactly...I don't care how good you are with a jigsaw...nothing beats a clean cut from a router and jig.

just a FYI.... if u plan to use a jigsaw a easier way to get a circle traces out is to

find something around 1" wide and 1/8-1/4" thick put a screw at the end of it right in the middle of the 1" then measure from the center of the screw out for ur radius of ur circle then drill a hole big enough to fit the tip of a pencil through... then just screw the screw in about half way where the center of ur circle is and trace out ur circle

Thats how I do it. It's a lot easier to cut out a good circle if you draw a perfect circle first.

that is true... another tip is to dont go to slow and dont try to force the jigsaw and never stop the jigsaw
