Bass reflex towers with rear slotted ports for upper section 2 way drivers and for the lower subwoofer section.
The enclosure consists of 3/4″ MDF with a poplar front baffle.
2 way crossover designed using XSIM and PE parts.
Tips & Tricks:
I have found it works best to cut the front baffle a little larger than the front of the box and use a edge trim bit with a router to clean up. That way the front baffle fits the box perfectly. You can round-over upper and lower side corners as desired up to 3/4″ radius. I used a 3/8″ radius round-over bit for this build.
Both upper and lower section boxes are tuned to 35 Hz and with no eq have a wide frequency response with very respectable low end.
