Not sure how interesting this will be but figured I'd post it anyhow....
I'm starting with one dual 12" OB H-Frame, can't afford to do them both right now . This will replace my current sub, a CSS Quartet 10 ( 10" SDX 10 driver and 2 10" PR;'s). Eventually I'll build the 2nd H-Frame and have them config'd in stereo.
So, I started with 4 panels, 27" x 15" x 3/4"
I laminated these into 2 panels
Next the panels were trimmed to size ( 26 3/4" x 13 3/4" and 3/4" x 1/2" dados were cut for the baffle and braces
I cut the baffle 26 3/4" x 14" (an extra inch wider for the dados), routed the 11" holes for the woofers and put a small roundover on the rear side of each cutout. Braces were cut 14" x 6 1/2". Also laminated a base and a top plate that I left long so I could trim it off after I glued it in place
Next I dry fit it all together to make sure there were no issues
After that it was time for some glue
I had to use screws instead of clamps to glue the top plate on, I don't have long enough clamps
Plan was to let the glue set up and then get the flush trim bit out and zip off the excess.... problem..... my flush trim bit only has a 1" cutting blade
Had a 2" one sent out this afternoon. So instead, I did some sanding and put a 3/8" round over on all the inner edges of the cabinet. I'll add 3/4" roundovers to all lthe outer edges once I get the new flush trim bit and can cut off the excess from the top plate. Note, I'm just dong the round overs on the cabinet for appearence.
