Thanks Kevin,

That 1" round over bit is definately a scary tool...

Re: Shiva X Extended Bass Shelf

Wouldn't a " round over bit work as well? Doing one side at the time..

No, the flare is 1" radius, it's 1" deep and just over 1 1/4" wide.
I mounted it on the tube as the guide so it's as close as you can get to being seamless.
I am going to run a 3/8" around the outside top as well.

Re: Shiva X Extended Bass Shelf

It's time to start fitting it all together & find out what I haven't thought about.

Here is the first panel in place looking in through the driver mounting plate

Re: Shiva X Extended Bass Shelf

Here are my current T/L's, in room, measured at the listening position - no room treatment (except the couch).
They sound OK and have good output to 30 Hz but drop off quickly below that.

Re: Shiva X Extended Bass Shelf

I attached the second panel today. In hindsight I should have glued two panels in the three legs and let them dry then attach all at the same time as it takes 24 hours for the "liquid nails" to set.
I have put a wad of eggcrate foam in the top to help with fundamental standing wave at ~85Hz.
Anyway it's looking good and going together better than I thought it would.
I may need to measure the distance for the last panel as the glue may take up a few mm in the circumference.
If all goes well tomorrow I should be able to test it by tuesday.

Re: Shiva X Extended Bass Shelf

As expected there was a delay. I ran out of Liquid Nails, but that's another story, and bought another tube.
The first tube was water cleanup and set overnight, no problems.
The second tube was solvent based and with a bout of cold weather, and several days rain, didn't cure properly for three days.
Anyway, the woodwork is finished and looking good. I have started prepping it so I can undercoat and paint on the weekend.
I supressed the urge to drag it straight in the house and test it as that's where it would have stayed unfinished!

Re: Shiva X Extended Bass Shelf

I'll post some when I get the paint on. Hopefully this afternoon as it looks like it's going to be a nice sunny autumn day.

Re: Shiva X Extended Bass Shelf

I drilled and test mounted the speaker connectors and filled the second "chamber" with acoustic fibre. This is more to stop things from falling onto the driver than anything acoustic.



Next I gave it two light coats of primer and then two coats of a colour called Arrowroot.










Next is to attach the Baseplate and Shiva.
