    Diy 4315

    Kits arrived from Vista, found a cabinet maker
    from US Audio Mart.

    Im pleased. The 2105 cut out at 4 3/8 seems
    spacy, buts itís the same on the L88 plus

    i will assemble soon

    The L100t sub enclosure for the le5 is to
    large in diameter for the 4315s, I had ro
    remove the sub-enclosure from the l88 plus
    which fit perfect, the l88 plus can also
    utilize the larger L100t enclosure.

    The carpenter cut the rear cut out for the
    terminal plates to large for the original
    3114 plates, so Iím using 1/2 B.B.

    Poor cabinets

    So far every joint is gaping, the bottom and tops are
    not flush with the sides I would not
    be able to veneer them w/o sending out
    to a professional shop first to flush everything up

    i paid $800.00, $500.00 for the cabinets & $300.00
    flat packed from Cali,

    im asking for the seller cut all panels again
    and ship on his dime, or return $600.00

    i honestly feel the guy whom made these
    did not test fit the cabinets, Iím not sure
    how these got delivered in this condition

    when end I asked for a test fit the response was
    the joints were to tight and would not separate
    bur was assured fit was perfect,

    the carpenter had these in his shop for 5 months
    my last day to file a claim on them is the 31st of October

    That's a piss poor job. I'm amazed that you couldn't find a wood fabricator locally , that would have been better.

    Can I make a suggestion , get yourself one of these

    and offer it up against the corners that should be 90 degrees. You will be able to take pics of that that will confirm your case.

    Also if you measure diagonally both ways across a suspect panel if it is square both measurements will be the same. If it is skewed the measurements will be noticeably different.

    the baffles are fine, all other panels on these cabinets
    are problematic, I asked for the panels to be resawn
    tested and shipped to me,

    the next offer i fer I had was one from Canada
    $750.00 no veneer plus whatever shipping is from
    there,

    $1000.00 from a Lansing member, plus the shipping
    charge. I’m over $1000.00 already on two failed attempts
    on cabinets

    honestly I’m just not quite sure how these were mailed
    to me after 5 months of construction

    Do yersel a favour and do good accurate diagonal measurements ( In mm if you can ) and mark each panel up in chalk or pencil. Show us what you got.

    I notice a lot of tearout on one of the edges also. that's a no no.

    I would advise that you get your Card issuer to refuse payment.

    Were the panels marked? I wouldn't expect them to be 100% interchangeable from box A to box B unless built by a master or CNC'd. Woeful material and construction, though.

    Hope you can get a substantial refund and correct, or start over.

    Parts a & b, I used the optimal pieces from the
    12 cuts, those are as tight as I could assemble
    all shipped parts,

    TBH, I donít feel these were test fitted,
    a reasonable individual would have stood
    behind their work... this project really seems
    to be out of control.

    So the seller wants me to return the cabinets he
    made to him in Ca, and Iím supposed to pay the
    return fees, I paid $300.00 exactly fedex ground to have them
    shipped, to me. Loaded cabs from La, cost 230 according
    to eBay for a pair. The seller asked for payment as a friend,
    to which was declined, an asked for $15.00 in PayPal fees

    we have another $400.00 payment thatís not been
    released. It was for shipping an misc fee, which is in dispute
    on PayPal.

    Iím not arguing over money, so if the furniture repair
    person says they are beyond fixing. I will return
    them, as they donít cost anywhere near what I was charged
    to ship, and anticipate receiving the uncollected money
    back.

    Ship his junk plywood back to him and charge him $300

    BTW that looks to me to be what we call sheathing ply. Low grade stuff.

    Exactly. Did you specify Baltic Birch or marine/voidless plywood? If you did, he has breached his contract. If you didn't give him written specifics about material, construction, and dry fitting, I think you are screwed. He can prove he built and shipped to you , and in theory can come after you for funds he was not paid. That's unlikely though.

    They are paid in full, 100% I used the baltic birch
    for the cavity, pure bond denim, for insulation
    poplar for, bracing.

    The carpenter is arriving today
    lets hope he can put them together.

    I just am not keen to the fact after a 5 month
    build process, this is what shipped in the mail
    & not exactly sure why he asked to ship
    him the materials back, stand by your work.

    As far as I can see he will need to reduce everything by about 1/4" in order to square it all up. If he has a properly set up panel saw he will have all that material good to go in an hour or two.
    Not the end of the world if you loose that 1/4

    FINGERS xx'D

    My estimated price to properly build the
    cabs is $600.00 $300/ per,

    i have that in writing,
    usps or fedex ground back to the
    seller is 30-35% less then I was
    initially charged, ( added extra weight & inches )

    the seller will accept cabinets back
    he said he will build them, and sand them
    but we had a ď conversation ď about labor.
    Which led to them telling me once the are
    built I have to pay for return shipping. The part of
    the discussion that lost me was there.

    Here were here the options I gave
    build and ship back to me, you pay
    sand, & level the panels flat ship
    them back my way, you pay,

    my last option was I can go in on a percentage
    of the return shipping to me once they have been
    remedied, but this is privy to visual knowledge
    they have this time been built

    im only asking for $600 back I paid $800


    The seller did not want to really negotiate
    he is paying return shipping, to which he was not
    obligated to do.

    Short story I said take em back verify their condition
    Well take it from there
