Gearstix is still in the green - This is good
Default Re: gearstix design

I made a boo boo.

I have the first baffle screwed on the box. I drew out the sub holes and cut them out, thinking that I could put the second baffle on and trace it out.

Thats not going to work, lol.

So I'm not sure what to do.

Not that big a deal.
Get out your tape measure, do some measuring, some math, and figure out where the centre of the two cutouts are.
Then mark those 2 points on the new box, and draw a circle with the same diameter, on both, and cut it out. Easy as pie.

This is the second time I've used a jig saw, first time was yesterday.
Dad comes home from work and says 'what a rough job you've got done'...


Glued inside.



This is what I got to spray on it.

Updates so far today.

I added some more scews to the top baffle.

Theres over ninety now on the top. I hope it won't come apart.

I also test fitted the sub. I may get this thing in paint once I take a break. Its hot out.. for here at least.







Ran a bit of Mono exterior around the inside of the box and around the base of the brace. I've never used it before.. its sorta a mess, but it'll work.

No need for that many screws...wood glue alone would be stronger than the resin bonding the MDF fibers...

Try it out sometime, glue and clamp two pieces of MDF together, don't even screw it. Let it set for 24 hours, and then break it apart. Usually the glue joint survives, and the MDF peals apart.

But hey, nothing wrong with overkill.

I know the wood glue is strong. I put I think half a smaller bottle on the first baffle, layed the second one ontop of it and lined it up, then I went to put the screws in and I noticed one corner stuck out a bit so I tried to move it, I couldn't. I was amazed.

It shouldn't weaken the box though eh?

I got it painted now.. its just too dark for pics. Garage has ****ty lighting.
