    just wait until you hit puberty. your box will carpet itself.



    After getting jacked , I'm finally ready to get back into the game! Going a little smaller this time. Just a little 12" RE SE on 600w.

    Re: Carpeting your box

    Build a box with a rabbited edge or overhang. It makes the carpeting processing much easier.

    Re: Carpeting your box

    This isn't the "proper" rabbet technique, but as you can see, it works brilliantly. Learned it from BJfish and James Bang (but adapted it since I don't have a router table), and I've done it IIRC three times now with increasingly better results. This was the first attempt:

    Actually, you dont need a router table to do this technique, just a router and the bits. I used to do it without the table for a long time. Just use a straight edge when you doing the groove cut with the straight cutting bit.

    Hell, whatever works. Sometimes its more of a hassle just to change techniques, even though it might save a little time.

    Indeed I agree with you. I just feel like using my router as a fixed base unless I'm building actual speakers
