That’s what I was thinking and since I was leaning toward leaving it as one, bracing was definitely in the plan!

Baffles and ports are cut!  I’m hoping to start the box assembly tomorrow.

That is looking awesome!  Are you running a CNC?  THose are some precise cuts!

No, just a router and a circle jig. Jig does 1/16” increments. It’s pretty nice. Not as nice as CNC but nice none the less! 🙂  The circle centers were laid out with a Woodpecker brand saddle guide which is (potentially) accurate to the 1/32” so that helps too.

Well, mostly finished assembly tonight (working 2nd shift sucks). Nothing on the box is glued yet except the small internal box for the mid but it’s coming along...

Not much accomplished tonight unfortunately. I routed out the inset and hole for the terminal cup and apparently I measured wrong. So, I am 3d printing a guide ring so I can use my flush trim bit in the router. Maybe I’ll have a functional speaker tomorrow night?!

That is pretty sweet.  A good use for the 3d Printer.  I have been considering getting one for the channel to give out files to print off terminal cups, amplifier cases, and even speaker enclosures.

I have the monoprice mini and, for the price, it is awesome.  They are typically under $200 and work very well right out of the box!  Only down side is print volume. It is 120mm in all directions or a little over 4-1/2”. Other than that, I really like it. I’ve put probably 8-10 spoils of filament through it!

I was looking at a few.  I am not sure which on e to get.  I would like something with a higher build height, so I could build so cool enclosures, but haven't go there yet.

You might think about the Anet A8. It is an open source kit but the instructions out there on the internet is plentiful and you can’t beat if for the price. However, if you’re willing to spend more, I think the Original Prusa is a very solid choice. They come with auto bed leveling and you can add an upgrade to do multi-colored. I’m 95% sure that’s what Hexibase just bought recently.

As for the center, tonight was not NEARLY as productive as I wanted. I got the ports installed and glued up and the drivers are in the front of the cabinet but I am out of the smaller crimp connectors so I guess it’s back to the hardware store tomorrow!

I actually had an Anet A6, but never really got it up and running.  I just got too busy and ended up giving it to a friend who wanted to get into it. I was not impressed with the plastic design either.  So I was considering either a CR10 or and Ender 3.  I do like the idea of auto bed leveling.  That would be a huge plus.

Yeah, I’m very reluctant to go to bed but 5 hours of sleep with two kids all day is a recipe for disaster!  So, maybe tomorrow I can get a rough idea what it sounds like...
