Nicely done and great progress! It's too bad I'm not there as Tamil is my native tongue and although the middle and upper class are well versed in English, that's usually not true of the blue collar worker!

Impressive!

So since your stint will be over in 7 or so months, will you be shipping those suckers back stateside?

Best,
Anand.

Yes for sure, I think the opportunities in India are very good with a growing middle class and disposable income.  I have a nearly empty container provided to me for my return trip, so if your wanting something from India, just let me know.  Actually, a friend of mine is also going back so consider it two... lol

Weekend update

Finished the base section of the speaker and added the M8 screw inserts.  At 25mm these were not easy to screw into the tough HDF. 


This was my worst joint which needed to be sanded smooth.  I'm not sure what happened to cause the shift could be a lot of factors maybe more than one coming together.


19 minutes later with 60 grit sand paper it is all worked out. 


Ready for the next stage: Mount port tube, sand and fill gaps, and pre-paint


I dropped the speakers off at the CNC shop for hole cutting and fabrication of a mount for the port tube.  I know slight cheating but I'm not into buying 220v tools!  :green:

I'm looking forward to post production and getting them into paint.  This is one area where being in India will pay huge dividends as the amount of sanding is very big but the workers here are happy to work on a project for good pay.

Really enjoying watching your progress. Didn't catch what was so tricky about the bass reflex port though...?

The difficulty is in cutting the exact hole to fit the port. It’s back on track now.
