Looks REALLY nice. Just curious, but why did you cut the back baffle so short? Are you integrating the port to the rear?

Yep the port goes along the top and down the back. That piece is where the port exit inside the box will be.

cheers

Sorry Tony, I should have included a picture of the build drawing from Graham, it would have made more sense. By the way, nice paint job on your sub, please do not go far, I am sure I will have some questions for you. The Statement speakers I built last fall are still unfinished, you did a wonderful job.

Looking great! What type of glue did you use?

Don
I use Lepage yellow carpenter's glue or TiteBond II yellow glue, the Lepage has a higher initial tack and sets in about 20 minutes, the TiteBond II sets in about 30 minutes, than you can remove the clamps. Both very good glues.

Cool. I have been using Titebond III for everything and it seems to work well. It takes even longer to set up, about an hour or so... But it is supposed to be the strongest of the Titebond water based wood glues. I just have to clamp a little longer.

Thanks GP. It was my first HT build and I learned a lot. I will be around, I'm subscribed to your thread and really look forward to seeing your progress. It makes since now that you posted the sketchup. That Graham guy knows what he's doing.

Well I managed to get some more done on the subs. I have been installing the acoustic insulation as I go along. This is my third speaker build but the first time I was smart enough to install the insulation as I go.

I still have to cut a hole in the back panel for the binding posts, install the back panel, install the top, install wire for speaker, install last side panel and they should be complete.

I also picked up some Tremclad Hammered Black spray paint and will do a test finish on some MDF to see how I can get it to look. After seeing Tony's pictures of his sub, I have changed my mind on how I want my sub to look, Tony's are pretty impressive.

Re: IXL 18.2.2 HT Build (10.0 cu ft 15hz)

Well I finally completed the 4 cabinets for the subs, they are very heavy so I built wheelers to move them around my garage.

Next step is the finishing, my original plan was black fronts and veneered sides until I seen Tony's (Stuck Pixel) build thread, now I will try and go all black. All tips are welcome. I noticed Tony used wood filler (not sure what type) as opposed to bondo, I may also try the wood filler method.
