This is the art of perfection, and perfection takes time. I wouldn't rib you on how long it's taking even in jest. I'm looking forward to your final pictures.

I hope the sub is all steampunk & Captain Nemo looking...

Got the blower side of the vent system made this morning.

2 of these boxes will be on top of and outside the bookcase and will blower air into the canopy. I wanted to make sure I did not have a bunch of light shooting up through these holes and ruining the look so I made these baffled boxes.

Was a little worried the baffling would restrict air flow too much, but the air coming out is strong enough to blowout a lighter for 12" away, so I think it should be good. I used Silnex 120mm fans and they are absolutely dead silent. Can not hear them at all sitting right next to it.


This is how they will sit on top of the canopy, blowing air down into it.


This is the internal baffling

Plumbing and vent ducting through the walls. tore everything out and redid it in Schd 80. Stuff is not cheap. Making (2) 90* turns through (2) walls was a serious PITA to do by myself.
