Product Details

Dayton Audio TW-0.38MA 0.38 cu. ft. 2-Way Speaker Cabinet Maple

If you want to create a loudspeaker without investing the time and money building one from scratch, these cabinets are the answer. Dayton Audio pre-made enclosures eliminate the time-consuming and messy steps of cutting wood, assembling the panels and braces, gluing veneer, and finishing. Using Dayton Audio speaker cabinets will guarantee superior results every time. 3/4" MDF side and back panel construction is reinforced by a 3/4" MDF "shelf" brace running vertically up the sides and across the top and bottom. The entire cabinet, including the rear, is covered with a very tight-grained, real maple wood veneer with a semi-gloss finish. The baffle is 1" MDF with a black satin finish and rabbeted construction. It offers the flexibility of the B-REX replacement system and comes pre-finished without any driver cutouts. The grill is secured to the baffle by neo magnets in line with the machine screws that fasten the baffle to the enclosure. Two 1/4" holes on the back simplify installation of Dayton Audio knock-in binding posts. The cabinet is extremely rigid and solid, with minimized panel resonance. Complete with baffles, hardware, and grills. Add crossover parts, port tubes, damping materials, binding posts, and your drivers to create a complete system rivaling the appearance of the most lavishly presented audiophile speakers.

Dimensions: 14" H x 8" W x 10.5" D.

Note: Cabinet dimensions do not include grill

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 machine screws that line up with matching threaded inserts, to secure the baffle to the cabinet. The baffle 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!

Dayton Audio TW-0.38MA 0.38 cu. ft. 2-Way Speaker Cabinet Maple
Dayton Audio TW-0.38MA 0.38 cu. ft. 2-Way Speaker Cabinet Maple is rated 4.6667 out of 5 by 3.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maple speaker cabinetsPurchased these maple cabinets last week.Spent 14 hours cutting, drilling, soldering, installing a custom crossover, mounting high-end drivers with a small "vent" or "port" in the baffle.From the start, I was most impressed with the overall build, fit and finish. For there size these cabinets are strong in design.When I finished, hooked up an older amp with 50RMS per channel.Solid, clean sound with amazing soundstaging. Friends think the sound is better than most $400 per pair londspeakers on the market.Be warned though, the "grills" are a joke. Too small, there designed for small drivers & I installed a 6 and 1/2 inch woofer and 1 inch dome tweeter, with a 2 inch port.I had to replace the bolts holding the baffle with longer bolts & then "space" them using steel tubing cut to 1/4 inch size to raise the grills from the baffle, and the magents in the grill do work fine to keep them in place.Otherwise, I would purchase these boxes again in a minute.I am one pleased customer!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from loooks good feels goodI don't know how to give a box 5 stars. THis is a box, that's glued for you, with spare parts available if you need to replace the grill or front face.It's got a big brace in the middle, so check your speaker depth.The maple veneer is not very hard, and I dented it a couple times when my screwdriver slipped. The MDF interior did not hold up when I tightened my screws- it stripped out pretty easily, so keep that in mind- it's not all maple... Neither of those issues are blamable on the manufacture, just beware of it when you use these.The cloth cover is mounted only with magnets, which I don't don't trust much if there were any trauma.The face of the speaker is tightly fitted for the box, but i used some gasketing on the inside frame just to be sure.All in all, I will say, "you can't build an ugly speaker cheaper than this, and these are attractive."I used this box for a small sub in a 2.1 design- along with Tang Band 5.25 subwoofer & Dayton 2.1 amplifier. I am VERY pleased with the results and ease of install. In 1 hour or so I had the amp, driver installed and set up on my PC/office system.If you plan to use that driver or similar, I recommend you do a 'flush mount.' I did a 'front mount', and I can't put the cover on over it- FYI. I'll do a flush mount if I ever get the courage.Speaking of different mounting techniques and screwups-One great feature of these dayton pre-fabs is the spare parst. They sell extra face/baffles, and covers, so you can have one face for a sealed enclosure, and buy a 2nd one to try a ported enclosure to compare. Or buy a 2nd one because you cut the too much. Or to try a different driver scheme. That's cool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Save Time & MoneyI'm very pleased with the quality of the construction of these enclosures. The veneer is very nice, the grill/baffle system is excellent, & the pre-drilled holes for the binding posts are a nice touch.
