Help for X-Statik Cabinets
« on: 30 May 2020, 12:36 am »
Hi from Laredo, TX. I need help to build the cabinets for X-Statik and X-Voce.
Is anyone working on these speakers?

  • To whom more was given more will be required.
    • Never go to a psychiatrist, adopt a straycat or dog. On the street they live only two years average.

What kind of help are you looking for?  Advice, or someone to cut it out?

I don't have the precision wood cutting tools. I need help with the cutout.

I'd print out the plans and find a woodshop over in Nuevo Laredo to cut it, and if the price was right, maybe even assemble all but the front panel.  I made mine out of plywood fronts and back with MDF sides, tops, and bottoms.

First thanks Alex H, you are the one who inspired me to build one. I sow your pictures they look awesome!
And S Clark yes, I am in Laredo, TX. I would like to get in contact with the woodshop in Nuevo Laredo.

Thanks

I do have one small bit of advice.  The front baffle is the weakest point that has the potential for flex.  I chose Baltic Birch plywood for extra strength.  I also laminated it from two pieces to gain extra thickness and strength.

I found a small business in Muskegon, MI with a CNC machine who has cut me a pair of X-Statik speaker boxes.  Tracy is an audio enthusiast and worked on the build as well.  If you have questions or need a flat pack.,i am sure he would be willing to help you out.

The company is MI Rout LLC
