Progress continues, all of the ports a glued to the baffles, all of the cabinets have the bracing in. just need to glue baffles in, with only six camps I can only glue so much at a time.

One 3 Pi subwoofer is together just need to cut baffle, the other subwoofer should be together tonight.

Does this look right for insulation?

I glued down the back piece and my binding posts aren't in yet, still waiting on a delivery from Parts express. Which also has the hurricane nuts for the baffles.

Yes, that looks just fine. I actually don't use quite as much as you do above the brace, but what you have will be good too. I usually just lay a sheet on top of the brace, spanning the cross-section. It sort of separates the cabinet into two sections, top and bottom.

Any updates/progress? Smile .

Just an observation-
If you're trying to build these exactly as the plans direct you, you may want to remove the piece of insulation on the bottom of the boxes, as it's not supposed to be there.

Regards!

Hmm I didn't realize it wasn't supposed to be there seen it in a few other builds, I'll remove it most likely then when I mount the cross over.

More progress, The 3 Pi Subwoofers got their final hole cut with a 4" hole saw, since my router couldn't make a 4" hole and my dermal didn't like cutting MDF. I also bondoed around the edges and sanded, The subs are almost ready for paint. As of this morning before work the last baffle has been glued on to the 4 Pis.

To finish the 4 Pis I'm thinking about doing a 1" round over up the front sides with my router then bondo and primer. While I figure how what color I really want to paint them.

If all goes well I hope to have everything primed this weekend.

Round overs done, hope to finish Bondoing the edges of all the boxes tomorrow, then a bunch of sanding and I'll hit them all with some primer.

You can see the 3/8" round over on the top sides, and the 1" round over on the front sides, I think I'm leaving everything else square.

Sanding sanding sanding....so the first primer I put on needed a lot of sanding, I have the 3 pi subwoofers done! They are finished with Rustolem Hammered Black spray paint. It's a pretty nice look for the subs.

One 4pi is fully primed ready for more sanding before I start the stone gray enamel. the other 2 have the first primer put on and need a lot more sanding. The primer is basically the same color as the stone gray I'll be painting them.

I'll be out of town for work all of this weekend and and most of next week. My goal is to have all the paint on minus a the clear coat before I go. another 4 hours of sanding with some painting in between and I might be there.
