I have started installing the drivers and terminal to the surround speakers.
Could not find good looking black screws so I spray painted a bunch black. Turned out nice, I think.
Two coats of primer and the first coat of paint done.
I have chamfered the baffle edges and sanded everything to 240 grit. I let the dust settle and tomorrow I’ll apply primer.
I glued screws to the circular cutouts to make them into spikes to hold up the speakers when I paint them. That way I can paint all six sides in one take.
I shot a video of me fastening the baffles on the surround speakers with glue and brad nails.
I love that brad nailer. Glue, set pieces in place and [fatshoop] and it is done. I glued up the back sides of the surround speakers. I wait putting on the fronts as I can’t nail those as I will be chamfering the edges and risk running the router into those nails. Instead they will just be glued and clamped. Also my back started to ache as the work table is too low. Better listen to your body and stop in time.
I have routed a few more circles and the method is great. Very precise yet very simple.
