Re: another css 10" build

Looks good Rodny!! I think I'd leave the roundover as-is... a wider one might look weird, but then again if you're painting it candy red and doing it as a fun project, it might work still.
I'm still debating on the color, black or red:dontknow:, black maybe the way to go for know:bigsmile:


Looks like you tried it in the front and in the back? What did you think? Pretty great for a 10-incher, isn't it!?
Yeah!!! ...pretty impressive for a 10" sub!!!!
I really like the sound so far, I'm going to do the measurements and EQ it!!

Re: another css 10" build

More progress.....

Flush the amp, round the top part with the 1 1/4", build the grill and doing some bondo.

Using double side tape to hold the piece of wood, so I can use the router or laminate trimmer, this is better than staples or screws.

Re: another css 10" build

Woah, I hope you didn't remove all that material with your laminate trimmer!! A jig saw would help cut down on the plumes of dust :).

Nice build though!

I used the other two routers and the jig saw, did you said DUST!!!:eek:,that's probably the worst part of the whole build, the wood shop is small but it has a fan blowing out and still is not enough, I always wear my mask, is just to much sawdust!!:unbelievable:



Thanks!!

Re: another css 10" build

OK, the 1 1/4 roundover works really well on that sub, especially with the back edges rounded over to a lesser degree. This thing is going to look awesome. I wanted to flush mount my amp too, but I was just too lazy, and now I regret it.

Re: another css 10" build

OK..... 99% completed :sweat:

All I have left to do is cover the grill, I have some black speaker grill cloth from parts express but is not really black:scratch: it looks more like dark purple, I don't like it so I have to find a different material or order some cloth from somewhere else, any ideas on what material to use??

Thanks to everybody for the help!! specially Mike P:kiss: :eek:

:bigsmile:

Re: another css 10" build

Absolutely stunning sub and finish :drool: That sub is all business!

Do you use a spray gun or aerosol cans to paint your subs?
