Mike,
Who's the manufacture's of the equipment you mentioned above. Since I'm getting back into the arena, It is nice to get a idea of what others are using. Especially performs well with the NX Studio's.  This really gives me something to look forward too.

PS Audio. I have the BHK Signature preamp and a pair of the Stellar M1200 monoblocks

Thank you for the idea on the grill fasteners for the crossover. Just ordered up a set for my build. Simple and elegant solution to make things easy.  :thumb:

What are you building? A pair of NX Studio's?

Yup, flatpack just arrived yesterday so I'm going to start in on it this week and hopefully get some glue slapped on there by the weekend. I ordered the smallest speaker grill fasteners just because it won't take much to keep it in place. Once I get the box all set we're going wild with painting it.  8)

Classic! Dry fit them and glued the ramp together. This weekend I bust the clamps out and make it happen. I need to put the crossover mounts into the base before I get going. Plus I'm still waiting for parts to arrive but that just gives me more time to focus on painting the boxes all wild.

 A couple of things to note for builders using this as reference.

1. A down spiral trimmer would be a better all-around choice as it pulls chips and veneer down toward substrate, reducing splintering and chipping.

2. Two-part epoxy is going to increase "in-clamp" set time considerably. Typically, 12 hours minimum, with 24 hrs. often recommended. The only advantage I can see using epoxy is open time. Would not be worth it to my way of thinking. Both wood glue and epoxy joints exceed the strength of MDF by a huge margin.

Peter,
The open time was my point, some people may like having extra time, to set up clamps for alignment. For seasoned builders, it may not appeal to them, because of the longer cure time. However, for a first time builder, they may prefer the extra time for clamping and alignment purposes. Since the NX STUDIO isn't a typical small box speaker build, this is another option adhesive wise. Both adhesives, Titebond Extended & SYTEMTHREE T-88, are good available options.  :thumb:

Were you able to fix the corner of your speaker?  It appeared you were working on it, based on your last photo's posted.
Looking forward to seeing your paint job on the STUDIO's.

Yep, fixed up perfectly and just finishing up filling and sanding seams with glazing putty. Should be into primer this week  :D
