Constructed out of 3/4" MDF with real wood veneers, the quality of these cabinets is outstanding. Each cabinet has 3/4" side and back panels with a 3/4" MDF "shelf" brace running vertically up the sides and across the top and bottom. The baffle is 1" MDF with a black satin finish and rabbeted construction. The rear of the cabinet features two 1/4" holes allowing the simple installation of our knock-in binding posts (#091-1245). The overall cabinet is extremely rigid and solid, with minimized panel resonance.
The entire cabinet including the rear is covered in premium veneers with a butter-smooth finish. The Cherry finish is very rich with a relatively strong, wide grain and a semi-gloss finish, making them very elegant. It is important to note that these cabinets use real wood veneers, so some variations in grain and color will naturally occur between cabinets.
One of the most innovative features is the exclusive Baffle Replacement and EXchange (B-REX) system, which allows the front baffle to be easily removed for prototyping and construction. The satin black finish baffle has 4 pre-drilled holes for the included grills and guides. Concealed under the grill guides are 4 machine screws and matching T-nuts that secure the baffle to the cabinet, which can be installed or removed an infinite number of times. This is great for initial driver cutouts, allowing the work to take place on a piece of flat stock, rather than on a finished cabinet.
Thanks to the B-REX system, if you are uncertain whether your speakers are complete, the machine screws by themselves can be used to hold the baffle in place. Once you are ready to finalize the design, they then act as clamps too hold the baffle in place while your glue is setting. Blank baffles are available separately, allowing further possibilities in terms of using a single cabinet for multiple pairs of drivers. As you can see, the versatility offered by the B-REX system is unmatched in any other pre-finished cabinet!
This cabinet is sold individually and comes complete with baffle, hardware, grill guides, and grill. The front baffle is blank and comes pre-finished without any driver cutouts. All you need is binding posts, crossover parts, port tubes, damping materials, and your drivers to have a complete speaker that will rival the looks of the most lavish audiophile speakers.
