Speaker enclosure construction
I know we have a lot of members who have built their own speaker boxes. Is there any recommended material for said construction? These are just going to be enclosures for basic 6x9 auto speakers that will be going in the garage. Finish will just be paint, nothing too fancy.
The common material recommendation I've found so far seems to be MDF. Any particular thickness? Any joinery that is recommended over another? I was planning on a rabbet joint, or perhaps a locking rabbet. I was also reading somewhere that filling the box with fibre insulation is recommended. Is that necessary, or overkill?
Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.
