I will be ordering the crossovers, driver, and odds and ends from CLD on Monday. With the drivers actually in hand I should be able to more easily finalize the drawings.
Even without supporting any weight other than their own, the three points of 1/8th inch thickness on the baffles have me concerned. Apparently it won’t be an issue to spread the woofers apart by another 1/8th, giving me a 1/4″. I think that should give it enough strength that I can handle them safely. I’m not concerned about them once they are laminated to the MDF. But until I do, if I get the granite in a position where it wants to flex, those points would be the first to crack. I don’t want any cracks.
Having let go of the all-granite idea, I’m still interested in doing something unique with the large part of the cabinet. Anyone know a good way to apply faux leather to MDF? Not that I’m expecting a response. The only person who has been to this website other than me is someone with an IP address in East Rochester, N.Y. (hi, Jed).
