XF210 Open Back - Alternate Board Sizes?

#1 Post by RunTheOtherWay » Fri Feb 14, 2020 11:24 pm

My XF210 construction is finished and it's off for a Tolex application. For testing before deciding for sure between open and closed back, I tacked in a pair of battens to the rear inside and to those I tacked one 5"-high board and a 3"-high board as per the instructions. I experimented best I could with sliding a larger board around in back and decided I definitely want it to be open back. Closing off the slot in the back partially made a difference that I wanted to be able to explore further so I made an additional board 4" high and sent it along to be covered along with the 5" and 3" boards.

Has anyone experimented with and settled on back board sizes other than the 3" and the 5" and if so, what did you conclude?
