    Another NS3 Build: Funky 2-Way MTM

    I've been meaning to start building a set of 2-way speakers for my room, but have been unsure about what to build exactly. I want something quirky, while still being aesthetically pleasing (to me). I think I finally settled on an idea. It came to me while staring at the Walkman logo deliriously when I had a fever. I cut out a single piece of 1/4" mdf that I will use as a template to cut out pieces that I will layer to make the speaker "boxes."

    Each speaker will have 2 NS3s, one of those rear-mounted dayton tweeter that I've been using, and a Partsexpress 2-way crossover. I forgot the points, as I bought all of them a long time ago.

    They would be oriented vertically, and I'm not really sure if I'll have the tweeter offset facing inside or out.

    Re: Another NS3 Build: Funky 2-Way

    Well, I cut the driver holes and I think I'm going to remake the top piece, either by using the back as the new front, and then remaking the back, or just cutting another front out. Not sure just yet.

    Apparently the hols for the woofers were somehow not centered, and I wound up with them being just enough for me to notice. The real problem came when I went to round over the cutout for the NS3s. The first one went fine, but the combination of a dull bit and a small surface for the guide part of the bit to rest on left me with a very nasty looking cut. It's bad enough that it would take more bondo and time than I plan on spending trying to fix it, not to mention the fact that the holes are slightly off-center.

    Aside from those setbacks, I really like how it's turning out.

    Re: Another NS3 Build: Funky 2-Way

    I used the back for the new front and cut new holes, which were much better this time. I did have an issue with an uneven cut on the ttweeter hole, so i ran some bondo on the inside, taped the tweeter, and pushed it in, leaving a clean edge. I used a different bit, leaving a sharp edge around the woofers that I like a lot. I think I'll keep it instead of sanding it down, which I don't usually do.

    I finished cutting out the template for the inner panels. I used the circle jig and did the rest freehand on the router table. I sanded everything clean using the router and a sanding drum and it looks pretty good imo.

    Just finished the second cabinet, and all of my main routing is done. I can finally clean up the 1/2" of dust covering an entire corner of the garage.
