I've had a set of Vifa drivers sitting around since I retired a rather large set of 1/4 wave pipe speakers last year. I want something to fit up on my wall once I sell off (maybe) the mtms that I have up there now. Or these may go right next to them. Who knows. But anyway...
The woofers are Vifa P17WJs, and the tweeters are Vifa PL27TGs. I really liked these drivers when I had them in use.
I'll probably be using bend threaded rod again with this set. All of that will have to get worked out when I get there. As of right now, I am only building one, so as to make sure there are no issues with the design before cutting up the wood for the second one. I am basically going to be getting all of my projects to the point at which they are ready for paint, as I will be buying a HVLP gun later this week to start doing my own painting (if everything works out well)
Well, here we go with pictures.
I first cut a single template out of 1/2" mdf using the Jasper Jig, then rounding where the two circles meet with the sanding drum. I cut out 7 pieces (one extra) with the jigsaw, drilled 1/8" holes to pin the pieces together, and ran them on the flush trim bit on the table. These cabs will be 6 layers thick.
Double vacuum time
I used the Jasper again cutting out all of the inner circles. I now cut out all of my circles by going 75% of the way through each piece, then cutting with the jigsaw and flush trimming the whole thing. Then I don't have to worry about divots and whatnot when the jasper cuts the center free.
I rounded the outer edges on the top and bottom pieces with a 1" radius. The speakers are flush mounted.
