An X-Mas present for my daughter the Montreal Canadians fan (even if I’m not).
Had to be portable to bring it to the rink. Durable in case of an inadvertent high stick or rogue puck. Loud enough to be heard over screaming 8 year old’s during the pre-game. Lastly, cool enough that it wont embarrass her in front of her team mates.
GRS 1TD1-8 1″ Dome Tweeter 8 Ohm x2
Dayton Audio TCP115-8 4″ Treated Paper Cone Midbass Woofer 8 x2
5/8″ MDF, measures about 11″x6″x6″, front corners are a kerfed curves, interior lined with 1″ OC ridgid fiberglass. Tweeters are interior mounted on the sides (likely breaking some sort of acoustic law I realize).
A whole lot of glue and routing with the rabbit bit. Routed edges sealed with drywall compound then multiple coast of primer, sanding, then spray painted.
Crossovers are assembled Uxcell 130W 2-Way at 3500Hz.
Tips & Tricks:
Hadn’t tried kerfing corners before, definite trial and error, but the end results were great.
We’ll see on X-Mas morning!
