    Has anyone had any experience fixing cabinets that have large chunks taken out of them? The cabinets in question are two Klipsch RF-7 (originals), black finish. Whoever had them before me decided to "modify" the boxes to fit a different woofer in the bottom openings of both cabinets. From the...

    Audiophiles and home theater enthusiasts crave deep, clean, bass and yearn for their subs to devour the most demanding of reference material without batting an eye. There are a host of companies, many of which are internet direct, that manufacture subs and quite a few have established...

    So I got some Paradigm 3SE speakers last week, the drivers are in perfect condition but the cabinets are in rough shape. Would there be even a slight possibility of buying an off shelf box that would work? Here are the specifications: 2 way bass reflex quasi-3rd order resistive port 1" silk...

    I want to get 4 surround cabinets made for a design that will be very similar to the GR N3S, but these will be wedges that hang from the ceiling rather than boxes. Anyone know of a good cabinetmaker for something like this? Thanks ahead of time, jeff :dontknow:

    There are some speakers I built for my friend Carter. He had the vintage Altec 605B sitting around and wanted to use them. Here is the design I came up with based on the Altec 620 cabinets plans. First I cut up a couple sheets of 3/4" MDF.

    I am in the process of building three subwoofers (a RSS390HO-4, RSS315HF and a rebuild of a dead Polk PSW650). I am thinking of applying maple veneer on at least one box, but I am chamfering the edges of the boxes. How do you trim the veneer on the 45 degree cuts on the edges? I normally use...

    I'm sure I'm not the first one to ask this, but I could not find anything via search (my google-fu is weak). I'm building the Tri-Trix kit from PE, and am planning to make them a gift for some friends of mine. I was kicking around various finishing options, and I'm kind of leaning toward...

    Hello all, I am looking to sell my pair of pristine Moho Natural LS-6 cabinets that I bought from the AV123 auction. I have had some personal things come up and the funds I was saving for building these out are going to go elsewhere. They do not have port tubes on them. There is also none of...

    I would like to sell these cabinets. I was working on them for a project but no longer have the space to use them in. They were originally built to house the drivers I am also selling on the forum. They are located in Northern New Jersey and I am taking any reasonable offers. I can't ship...

    Hi, europe addict here! I have been a thorough reader of the forum for some time, this is truly a great source of information and i now have to ask the master gurus for some help on building my own project. I have some cabinet building experience, made some speakers in the past, never subs. I...

    I'm doing a small set of bookshelves, .5 cu.ft. and wanted to do a curved sided cabinet. I've done some basic woodworking and casework, but have never attempted anything like this. From the reading I have done, I can use thin mdf, or bendy ply. I had though of using thin (say 1/8 or 1/4) BB...

    I was reading a little bit about bracing recently, and have come to believe that my Monitor 7 speaker cabinets (and probably the Mini Monitors too) are probably really not ideally braced. I'm just wondering if it would be worth opening them up and adding a cross brace or two, and maybe some...

    Hi all. Nice forum here. Thanks for letting me join. I have a pair of SB-A52, which are fairly large (~4' high) speakers with 2x12" bass drivers each, as well as the mid and tweeter. and I find that the cabinets really resonate at certain frequencies, especially low bass notes. The walls of...
