    yeah, measure twice and cut once - a lot can be thought through and worked out in the preparation.
    luckily I have loads of time during the summer. A family member needed a place to stay with kids until september, so I gave up my flat - my flat is therefore not particularly big-speaker friendly anyway

    A little progress

    So - the summer is here and tiny Denmark has seen some weeks with nothing but sunshine.
    Luckily a few days of clouded weather and a cold wind forced me into the basement where I could proceed with the boxes and the 2405, which needed new diapraghms.

    Test-fitting the drivers - Upper baffle just laid in place - still a snuck fit, so I didn't want it to fall in just yet!

    Thanks Ian!
    I am very pleased so far!
    Next weekendt i'll build box number 2, and then move on to trim, painting and veneer-work.
    L-pads, wiring and reflex tubes are in route - so the only thing i am actually missing is the foilcal at this stage.

    I might plug everything in and give it a listen before doing trim and veneer-work, as I don't want to be too eager to get done when the delicate work begins.

    In the way I work with such projects, the more I get down to the finish and detail the longer it seems to take. It always seems there is one more thing to do and one more thing beyond that. I guess that it is the level of precision and care that becomes more time consuming, but there is also the anxiety to get it done. Thanks for sharing the work in progress.

    I absolutely agree David!
    It is a balance: you want it done to be able to experience the final product, but still it has to be done right. More times than i can count i've rushed through only to make mistakes, that overshadow the end piece.
    That can't happen here. Also this is my 4343 project, a project i've been planning for years - not enjoying the process would be mad

    So!
    I couldn't resist and had to get a small pre-listen of the speaker:

    And with that began the work on speaker 2 and the trim:
