The baffle or front of this 2 way speaker will be veneered in the sawn European hard wood of choice along with solid lippings (edgings) which will allow me to round over the edges for better sound dispersion. I highly recommend that we book-match the fronts of the speakers so that they will be a mirror image of each other. The baffle has to be veneered and not out of solid as the drivers need to be inset to not create distortion. Solid wood moves over the seasons which would mean the baffle would likely crack where the drivers are if made from solid. Bog oak baffles would be a stunning . Read more about bog oak here.
Please note Bog oak is extremely rare, hard to dry and work (fortunately its been dead for roughly 5000 years so I don’t feel bad using it 🙂 ) I have to charge a surcharge of 300 euros for Bog oak Baffles
