I have progress to report.
However my apologies to EYLERON; way too mush traffic thru our house this weekend to even attempt any REW / FR graphs - Sorry !
So I worked in the shop whenever I could.
First task was to practice with Duratex finishing. I put several coats of Duratex on my center channel stand. Here's BUC happily at home on the new stand. The stand was cut to aim BUC at the MLP, about a 14 degree upwards tilt.
Once my mains are finished; I will be "duratexing" all 3 speakers (for now BUC just has a temporary black latex roll-on paint job). The Duratex is a bit pricy, but well worth it, really a nice product to work with!
As you can see below I managed to get my boxes 80% assembles and glued-up for the deltalight mains.
If you look at the bottom rear, you can see where i filled and glued in a backing plate for the speaker terminal connection.
First; had to cut a very thin filler strip to fill-in the unused rabbit slot on the inside of the back panel, before putting in the backing plate (no big deal).
Also at the bottom you can see where I have cut some X/O boards. Not yet sure if I can crowd all the components on to one board, or I might split it up and use 2 XO boards per speaker (one for the woofer, and one for the WG)?And speaking of crossover boards, a Question:
I am 90% certain that the Parts Express capacitor shown below is a 33uF. However; the marking on the cap is odd >> 33,00
Has anyone else noticed this anomaly in PE capacitor markings; the ,00 part
And finally I started working on some stands for my mains.
I still need to cut the top mounting plates to size, and then I will round most of the corners and edges, fill the PVC tubes with sand, and will Duratex the whole thing. I assume Duratex will adhere to PVC plastic?
