I mounted one of the 8's, and looked a little closer, and it wasn't even close to being able to go over the top of the 8. So I had to glue 2 pieces together in order to make it workalso, my plan was to only have the rings be a half inch all the way around. The new idea is, since I'm not going to router a channel around it for the ring to sit inside, I'm just going to cut out holes where the speakers will sit, leaving the most amount of wood I can. It shouldn't add a lot of weight to it, but it will make things a lot stronger. That's looking good. If you are worried about weight, have you considered birch plywood? Not sure why I didn't think about that/mention it earlier in the thread, but it's quite a bit lighter and has similar acoustic properties to MDF. Not sure if you will need to reduce the weight in the doors but if you did need to that might be an option to consider. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options... 177 269 11
