Wow, that is one seriously tall subwoofer. It looks very impressive for a single 12. I guess when you give a driver enough room to breathe, you can get some really satisfying results. Nice work!
Thanks Raven,I keep coming back to this thread, I just love the construction of this water-tower you built! Fantastic workmanship, Robbo!
Yes, I used a pivot arm on the router (you could use a template as well with pre-set holes) and cut the outer circle first, It made it easier to maneuver the pieces. Then I cut the bracing semi-circles, then I cut the spokes using a jigsaw and finally I cut out the inner circle which braces the port.Nilcely done capable sub :T I wanted to ask you as i am ok with electronics while not so good with carpentry could you tell me please how are those perfectly shaped curves and lines being done (i guess you use a pivot point for the holes) ? For the port brace can you actually see the marks you drawn through the bottom router plate?
With the plunge router you need to hold both handles to control it properly, both up/down and side to side so your fingers shouldn't be anywhere near the bit. Take your time and don't force it. Set the depth stops, if it has them, to do multiple passes at different depths.Thanx, now it makes more sense to me, i only need to try it out. I got my router just yesterday but i am afraid. I know it is a silly to ask, is it of any concern you know losing a finger with it? (the tool is downwards all the time though)
