Circuit board / No screw drivers to snag wires while removing circuit board with screw drivers.

The grill fasteners for crossover are a brilliant idea. I'm putting it in my idea bank.

I should point out that if one uses #4 machine screws, washers and inserts for tweeter installation, no modification of tweeter frame is necessary. Either way, a more elegant installation, which warms my heart.

I always hand thread in initially, to prevent cross threading. Then tighten up the rest of the way with this tool.


Ball Hex Wrench I use.

Oh wow, that is a great idea! I need to think about that for my upcoming NX-Studio build.

Does that cross over board fit through the woofer hole in the baffle?  Why so thick?

Answer,
Yes the circuit board fits through speaker hole with plenty of clearance. Personal preference to build a thicker circuit board.

I typically applaud innovation, but it looks like the flanges on those inserts might be slightly above plane of the baffle. If that's true it might present a problem as the driver needs to sit on an absolutely flat baffle to seal with it's minimal gasket. Were it a vented speaker, it wouldn't be as critical.

Also, how does the grill frame clear the woofer perimeter?

Personal preference to upgrade to metal inserts & machine screws.  Resource: McMaster Carr,  8-32 inserts and Button head Hex screws.



***Footnote: This is what Mike is referring to, (Refer to his comment below / Photo I attached too) about counterboring, prior to installing flanged metal inserts.














I like the clean look of the black button head hex head screws securing the M-165NQ Woofer.



Peter,
I did a trail fit, and the speakers seat up against the baffle for a good seal. The grills clear the woofer indeed, I fabricated a prototype, prior to fabricating my final set of grills. Don't forget to factor in with the spacing, grill cloth tolerances too.

Roger that. I'm familiar with the product you used although I might have chosen a non-flanged variant. In the end, if you got them to sit flush, you're golden. Wasn't picking nits, but wanted to point out a potential area of concern for folks that want to do similar.

Perhaps a photo of grill from a different perspective would show folks how, (I'm assuming), you stood it off the surface to clear woofer frame.

Next step, paint grill frames and attach the grill cloth.

I use the flange model on some builds but I use a Forstner bit first to cut a counterboqQ

***Counterbore, prior to installation of inserts on front speaker baffle, is what Mike is referring to.
