Hey all,

Recently began building the cabinets for my 3Pi speakers while I wait for Wayne to get the upgraded B&C drivers back in stock.

I have attached some pics of where I've gotten to so far.

My main question is - is the current bracing I have in place sufficient? or should I also be placing a brace in the lower part of the cabinet. The pine I've placed towards the rear (for attaching the inset back panel onto) is sufficiently pre-loaded to act as bracing between the side panels, and from top to bottom. But the only bracing from front to back is the main brace to hang insulation on between the woofer and the compression driver.

Just wanted to check on this before I got going on sanding/finishing, and the insulation and gaskets. The back panels have been custom fit to each box so it is *tight*, but I allowed for speaker gasket to go round the perimeter and across the middle. Planning on sealing the rest of the interior perimeters with a silicone bead just in case.

thank you!
