Find Out About The Ways On How To Do Do-It-Yourself Speaker Rings
One thing about making DIY speaker rings that you have to be aware of is the fact that they can be a quick and easy way to save some money, most notably when you are eager to spend even a little time to set them up. In this article, what we will be doing is that we will discuss with you the process of making DIY speaker rings. Before we proceed with discussing the process, we will first start by suggesting you to make a list of all the tools and equipment you will use for the process. Know that when creating DIY speaker rings, you can make use of free-hand cutting, but, if you are looking forward to achieving a more professional result, you better get a guide. When we say guide tool, we are referring to a piece of stock aluminum with a Roto-zip that is mounted on one side, having staggered holes drilled down its length. If you happen to not have a Roto-Zip, you can do the same using a jig saw.
The very first thing that we want you to do when making a DIY speaker ring is to cut out a large circle in MDF. If you are making a speaker ring for a subwoofer, or any other speaker for that matter, we suggest that you make a circle at least one inch larger when compared to the largest part of the speaker. For example, you have a twelve inches sub-woofer, you have to ensure that you are cutting out a thirteen inches circle. When it comes to the hole in the tool, make it a point to ensure that you are using six and a half inches from the bit. If you have already checked the distances, the next thing to do is to place a small screw through the correct hole, while leaving enough of the screw out to allow the cutting jig to spin freely.
When you are done doing the first step, it is now time for you to move with the second one which has something to do with making the inside cut. When making the inside cut, you have to make sure that it is at least the size of the speaker basket. Let us say, you have a twelve inches speaker, that means that you have to make a cut that is at least eleven inches. What we are trying to say here is that you have to set your guide or guide tool at five point five inches, and repeat the steps stated above.
If you think that you already have the right measurements, the next thing for you to do is to sand down high or rough spots on your speaker rings.
These are the things that you have to consider when making DIY speaker rings.
