As CSS rolls out more kits, our plan is to offer MDF flat packs for every kit including driver and port cutouts/recesses and fully rabbeted edges for easy alignment during assembly.
Then it occurred to us that without much effort, we could offer these flat packs with blank front/rear baffles so they could be used for any design they fit.
Then it occurred to us that with a little forethought, and another bit of effort, panels from one kit could be reappropriated for another, for example, 4 side panels from our P215 kit could be combined with a new top/bottom to make a 12" x 12" x 11.25" subwoofer enclosure. We would only have to stock 1 extra panel size and you guys would get another option. If we did this with multiple designs, we could have many options available without a warehouse full of MDF.
If this plan works, we would want to design many of these enclosures simultaneously so we get as much good overlap as possible. So with this in mind, we're looking for some feedback. Most if not all of what we're considering right now will be simple rectangular prisms to maximize value.
What sizes would you like to see - both in volume and dimensional ratios?
What types of bracing options would you like to see to maximize stability, but minimize potential interference with drivers?
Is there any interest in plate amp sub-enclosures built into subwoofer cabinets?
What price points will make these flat packs viable options for you guys?
Anything else you'd like to see incorporated?
Thanks for the feedback guys, and a Happy New Year to all!
