first one we built up from one side, which made it very difficult doing
the curved section. All the rest
we made as per the photos, by building the box, but not gluing the top,
which we then removed to do the curved sections. That kept everything
square as we were building it, and gave us easy access to everything.
Once the curved section was done, we glued the top panel in
place, added the angled piece and the brace (which we cut to fit each
Other than that, we made a template out of MDF for all the screw holes,
which means there's no need for any layout (or having to think about
hitting a screw from another side), we just drill through the existing
holes and thatís everything done. A mitre clamp from Wilkos was worth
every penny (£1.99 or something daft) for clamping sides together
whilst we glued and screwed them. Also spent some time making router
templates for handles, connection plates etc, which make life simple.
Everyone should have a router...
I am also now a complete New Yankee Workshop Junkie.
Sound wise they are ace, they are all loaded with PD154's, we drive them
3 to a channel off QSC PLX3402's which seem to cope just fine, and are
dead hard hitting around the kick drum which is exactly what we wanted
as we are a techno soundsystem (we have had house boys use it who've
asked could we make the kick drum less "kickdrummy", which we
thought was a great compliment to the design...) On top of that I can
get 6 of them in the back of a Volvo 240 Estate, with enough space for
flightcases for decks mixer amps etc on top of them, and being able to
carry them by yourself is a real godsend.
We get people asking all the time if they can have the design, people
are generally amazed at the sound that comes out of these little boxes.
Cheers for such a great site,
