Looks great! You inserted your T-Nuts exactly the same way I do - With a dab of glue to hold 'em in.

Thanks for the build thread!

Glad it's Wayne approved! Now I await the Pi 4 kit to document each and every step as a build guide. Wink

I'm anxious to see Sean's build too. I'll bet he'd be happy to get the same look as you did on your subs. You really did a good job and I'm sure he appreciated the tips.

Guess you missed my intent Laughing

I do look forward to his build though.

I'm impressed you made that Duratex look so good!

I was tempted to go that route - but laziness prevailed and I dropped the assembled cabs off to the local Rhino liner today. I'm guessing cost will be about Double the diy route - hopefully the results are as good as what you did!

I like the choice of neutrik connector as well - that is also a tempting option here.

Go get them back! You'll need a half gallon of duratex and one roller. The cleanup is so easy with Duratex it's silly. The Neutrik is just nice and simple without any wires falling out ever. I like them when possible.

If you really are going to add the Neutrik, I really suggest you do it before paint though. It would really suck to have an "oops" on a finished cabinet.

Thanks for posting these details! It's very useful for me. Did you use 10-32 for the t-nuts, or 1/4" x 20?

1/4"-20 Tee Nuts for my driver. However, if you are using a small Waveguide or driver you can use 10-32 without an issue. Overkill is usually good; however, the bolt still needs to go through the trim ring. Wink

Wayne - what size bolts/screws do I need for the T-nuts installed in your flat pack cabinets?

Here are a few progress photos:

Wow! Those look great!

Use 10-32 screws. Black oxide button head screws look really nice.

Black usually isn't my favorite speaker finish but those look fantastic. The texture really make it pop.
