I have bought a Denon PD-1000 and need to build a layered plinth for it, what is the best ply to use? Indeed does it even matter?
Bamboo board may be worth a look in terms of layered plinth - it has better capabilities for resonance
Thank that sounds good, where could I source bamboo board? Is it reasonably easy to work with?
I may be starting the obvious to you, but any ply in cheapness below birch ply has uneven layers and will look awful. The standard birch ply, at about £70 for an 8*4 25mm board, is your starting point.
This thread on AoS might be of interest.
That looks great, thanks for that.
If the footprint you are planning is less than 440 x 440
then I have some second hand 24mm baltic birch that is is available
Eight bits - four with large hole and four without -
To Adams point - Agree cheap ply is not a good idea
the difference in photos below top photo cheap plywood example
If the size and condition of my stuff is workable for you - let me know
There are a few small screw holes though
Old tea crates are the best…
…ply foo tea.
Thanks for the generous offer Andy, but as I will be using the Jelco 12" it will need to be around 600 x 450.
Kitchen work top bamboo.
Available from kitchen work top places
OK no Problem - I thought it might have been a bit small for you
Just had a thought, has anyone ever tried casting a plinth? Could be interesting, different density concrete mixes, once the shutter is made the world is your lobster
With high mass plinths being de rigueur, how much scrap lead have you got?
I was thinking pig iron
I had zebrano speakers,a bit to busy for my delicate eyes.
