Posted these pics over on AVS, if anyone didn't see them already...







Getting there. That is/was certainly the most complex piece in the whole "puzzle".

Looking good! Love the Audi. Looks like it's been through a volcanic eruption lol! Wonder what their engineers would think....

Re: Monkey see, monkey do... two RL-P18s for me too!

Thanks. I love the Audi too. It's a 2002 S4. Twin turbo V6 and all-wheel-drive... go together like peas an' carrots. I'm a little bit ashamed that I don't take better care of it, though. The paint has taken quite a beating: so many rock chips and scratches. No door dings, though! (Knock on wood.) A few years ago used to look like this.

OK, finished my cup of coffee. Better head back down to the "shop" (garage) and resume the MDF pulverization process. More pictures to come later today or tonight.

Re: Monkey see, monkey do... two RL-P18s for me too!

Here it is... the fruits of my labor. Almost everything I need to build these two 17 ft^3 (net volume) subs:





May not look like much, but was it a lot of work! I can't help thinking about how much easier a sonotube would have been. But I'm finally ready to start gluing things together.

On a side note, my flush trim bit isn't looking so hot! To think it was sparkly fresh and new just a week and a half ago.





Sure do have a LOT of scraps left over. Already thinking about what I can make out of these leftovers. Hmmm...

Well, this past weekend the bearing fell right off my flush trim bit! Luckily I realized there is a small screw that holds it on and was able to put it back together. My 1/4" cutting bit is getting pretty dull, that's for sure.

Man I need to buy some extra router bits. Isn't mdf dust great.

Question for you are you using wood glue or liquid nails for glue up.
