haha!

My order comes in today (cloth, resin, etc), but I'm traveling for work from today until Monday, so Tuesday I'll get the mounting ring, grille assembly, and base cut. Thursday and Friday I'll be able to get everything else done hopefully. So completion date is set for next Friday... *crosses fingers*.

Then I'll have that whole next week off, so the kicks will get started then. And if I like the new 3" speakers, they'll get glassed sealed enclosures too.

Thanks Hamze!

Should be quite a transformation in the next few weeks... every speaker will have it's own fiberglass enclosure.

Re: Matt's 2006 WK Stereo Build Log Part II

Got some work done today.


Circled in red are the 3 mounting points I will use to secure the enclosure. You can see where the t-nuts are located and where the thumb bolt inserts.







Most of the materials and tools that will be used to make the enclosure.





I was able to complete the mounting ring and grill assembly wall today. You'll see that woofer is sunken - this will allow me to make another ring that fits inside of the "wall" that will be wrapped in grill cloth, and pressed into the opening.




























You'll notice I decided not go with t-nuts for mounting the woofer. Ideally, I would have preferred to use threaded inserts, but I had a bad experience with them in the past, lol, so I have eliminated that as a solution. T-nuts are a great concept, but do not perform exceptionally well in wood without grain. There are relatively easy ways to correct this, but I didn't feel like making the extra effort for a really non-advantage Plus, the fancy hardware would have been hidden by the grill cloth anyways.

Anyways, I'm hopefully going to get to work on this on from Wed-Fri, so updates coming later this week.

You got it Irf... NOT!

Well, I've been swaying back and forth between using MDF for the flat floor piece of the enclosure, or using all glass. I think I'm going to use all glass though. The thinner thickness will make it easier for mounting the floor bolts. I'm kinda worried about not having enough resin (although most say it takes about 1 gal for a 1.25 ft^3 enclosure - I'm looking for .8-1.2), but US Composites is only 1 days shipping away, so I'm going to go forward with what I've got.

I may start tonight because tonights MNF game is meh.

I'd prefer a thinner material for mounting the thumb bolts. I also think as far as continuity, I'd prefer to have all one material. This is my virgin experience with fiberglass and having to mate the glass and wood kinda scares me a bit . Anyways, all this talk is amping me up to start tonight, haha. I'm just not sure if I'll have a sufficient amount of light
