You know it! If it were just me, I'd have cinder blocks and wooden planks as a media center.
Is her name Stephanie?
You know, my wife has this thing with wicker baskets too.
bwahahaha must be a wife thing!
Organization is just an extra step in grabbing the object you're looking for.
I guess you have never seen a speaker cabinet or 90% of "modern" furniture then?
MDF/MDMF & Pine are excellent materials; relatively cheap, easy to work with and very durable! If you aint up to staining/painting and are feeling "regal" apply your favorite veneer
You aren't inside, moving hardware in and out of a MDF speaker case on a regular basis, or running active components like a water loop and fans. They aren't cycling 2-300 CFM of air on a regular basis.
Theres a HUGE difference in the ruggedization of a speaker case Vs a computer case.
My wood case would have looked a lot less "nice" not only if I would have used MDF and venir on it, but it most definitely would have not lived through the beating it held up to, being OAK.
I do speak from experience.
Well if you want something mobile then sure go with a standard PC case otherwise i would feel comfortable using either of those product's. I have worked with wood before and made various thing's, never had any issues with Pine or MDF/MDMF Built everything from speaker cabinets to free standing structures, my grandfather was a carpenter.
If you are swapping components so frequently you should be looking at an open style tech bench anyways. Once i assemble a PC the only time i go in there is to clean it out every 6 months or so. I have mucked about with speaker assemblies more than PC build's in the past and still never had any issues
I don't see how a sealed WC loop or 200cfm -300cfm is going to cause any damage but whatever, to each their own. That's why there's more than 1 option at the hardware store and even more at the PC shop
A lot of the cuts and structural design I used for my case wouldn't be doable with MDF, either.
Granted, my first revision wasn't how I wanted it it all, but my limitations at the time required it that way.
4 boards nailed together Vs properly routed and reinforced channels mean a world of difference in structural strength.
BTW - the title is confusing. I thought there was pr0n here...
You're a sick person.
And that's what we like about you.
Sometimes my job just really sucks, so I come here and make smart-ass remarks for fun. It's a hobby...
dude did u try a rasp file to fix that jig saw massacre?
If I may ask, what brand of speakers are hiding behind that wall?
Why troll? One of the thing's that is so great about MDF/MDMF is it's versatility, guess you've never seen a piece run through a CNC? That being said i will not comment further as it is only detracting from the O/P.
Apologies johnnyfive for the O/T banter Great work so far, appreciate the time/effort to build the case & to post the log. Thank you
Nope, but good idea sir.
You'd be surprised... Monoprice.com bud.
Cheap, and they sound damn good.
+1 Monoprice & Partsexpress are a wealth of resources and have excellent pricing
You installed yourself? If so, looks clean lookin. What sub you got?
Yes, installed everything myself. Speakers, wall mounted the tv, did the speaker wiring, made my speaker wiring (made my own banana clip wires), built the entertainment center, everything.
Polk Audio PSW Series PSW10 Black 10-inch Powered ...
Pretty damn good sub for $110, although, I got it for $89 shipped when it was on sale.
For my rears, I'm using these in the ceiling.
Have to agree with you man, my friend has the PSW10 and it definitely gives great bass. I have the PSW505 and might get another one when there is another discount. Anyways, lookin forward to see that finalized w0od build of yours paired with that awesome setup!
