What size clamps? How many?  And what brand of glue?

Ok,  for a minimum glue up  4 18" clamps for duals and   6 if   they are  the triples  but remember,  that is bare minimum...     more is always nice as you can add them to  other  places.....    The dowels in the base  / top / side panels take  care of the   alignment,  so  really, you  only  NEED to clamp across the braces to  squeeze the  cabinet together and  from front  brace to rear brace to  keep them   up against the baffle.   

In Peter's video, you'll see I recommended   assembling them  upside down and not to glued the top on  during the first step, it is actually  done last....   instead,  you  want to glue the  baffle, side panels, and braces  using the top as a  jig. Then   the base  to the   exposed   end facing up using the  4 dowels  for alignment.  The base has  4  counter sunk  screws so no  clamps required here.

Once the glue sets  up, unclamp and flip the cabinet over (right side up).  Now  knock the unglued top off   and  glue it  down  using the   4 clamps  (they'll clamp  from the top to the  braces) ...  I'd use a  small piece ctive piece of scrap between the clamps  and face of  cabinet top.

Titebond glue will be fine,  or,    get the Titebond Extends  if you  want a bit of extra  open (work) time

Does anyone know of someone near Eastern Iowa area that runs a pair of the GR open baffle subwoofers?
Thanks

Hi everyone,
Just wanted to say thanks to Jay for my new sub cabinets. I ordered a pair of dual 12 open baffle subs. Very high quality work, and excellent shipping and packaging. No damage.

Thanks Tom, appreciate the feedback.

We send out Tom's pair all glued up with preinstalled magnets in the cabs and grill frames.   Fairly well prepped so  only  minor  work required  before   finishing at  your  end. Boxes end up being  larger so  there is an higher shipping cost involved but,  it is an additional service  we can provide.

Hi - just checking in to see what shipping / lead time is currently looking like?  Am planning on a pair of doubles to go with my Magnepan 3.7i. 

Thank you!

We currently  have  quite a list of folks waiting on a variety of cabinets.  We are  trying to get  through them  as  fast  as we can ....
Best   thing to do is get  your  name  in  our  "queue" by  emailing me at captainhemo at  shaw.ca.....  we're  trying to  fill  orders  in  the  order that  they were  received

My email address is in the post  directly above yours.
What is the  outer  diameter of those woofers... I doubt they'd  even fit inthe cabinets.....

I strongly recommend triples. You'd be surprised how much difference the added driver makes and it doesn't take up anymore floor space than the doubles. The triples would also balance out visually with the Maggies better. Here's a pic of triples with a pair of Martin Logan Summit Xs



These have A370-XLR3 amps built into the bottom of the the towers. If you keep the amps separate the towers would be shorter accordingly.

So does this mean there is a Dual OB Sub Flatpack available? I did not see it listed on the website.

Yes,  we've have been  shipping duasls, triples, and quads  to customer for over  5 years...    they used to be on the GR site,  not sure why they are not any longer....
The quality  kits,  service and  support our customers  have become  used to   are still available here !

All the information  about these is on page 1, first post... I try to keep that up to date.
In a nutshell,  we use  ultra refined, solid 1.5  Plum Creek MDF for the side panels, top and bottom plates so there  no seams to  telegraph through  paint down the road.  Baffles and bracing are made from  1"  Medex.   All wiring pass through and   pilot holes for  drivers are pre-drilled,  large roundover are added to rear of  baffles.  More options are available after discussing

Kits are very easy to assemble,  everything is  either  dado'd or  doweled.
As posted earlier in  this thread,  Peter did an assembly video  of one of our cabinets for us, it can be seen here:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYBmmJzS_iU

All the different  wiring drawings and write  ups I did for the different  cabinets  are here:
