Re: Sealed 15" Dayton DVC385-88 build

After the clear, do you move on to installing the connectors and drivers?

Not quite yet.

I will add some touches to the cabinet and I want to make a grill for it as well.

Once the cab is fully done, I will install the connector cup on the back and run the wires, using hot melt glue to secure the wires to prevent any rattling.

Then I will stuff the cab with polyfil and finally--install the driver.

That's the plan, anyway.

Decorative touches, getting sanded by Mrs. Interest.

I thought I owned a lot of clamps until I looked in the background of these pics.

I had a few decorative touches in mind, but the Coolness Factor just wasn't there. Moving on...

Ring grills.




Nearly done.

Looks good. I was planning on doing the same style of grill as my drivers jbl gto1514d don't have a nice look to them.



(sample pic, i haven't started my build)

I don't see any sockets installed in post #10; how are the grills held in place?

I used the Grill Guides I got from Parts Express. I didn't get a photo of that. Also, the fabric ring is held in place by screws driven at an angle. I should get a shot of that later. It might help some others to see how I did that.
