I have a few significant equipment updates worth sharing...
First, I am the new owner of three Procella Audio P815-AMP
speakers, specifically these exact speakers from
They are the self-amplified versions with integrated crossovers which means I'll need to run balanced XLR and separate 15A circuits for each speaker in my baffle wall. They will take my system capability from 'loud' to 'face-melting' as Kris puts it.
I'm going to list my three Procella P610s if anyone is interested. It also means I should list one of my three Sherbourn PA7-350 amplifiers I was going to use for powering the P610s.
Second, I placed my order for two Stereo Integrity BHS-24
A pair of these should be able to crack my foundation walls which is always a positive thing, right?
Truthfully I wanted the extra overhead (nearly triple!) of my current HS-24 drivers and not feel the urge to upgrade down the road. I want to entomb these in the front baffle wall and not touch them again for a very long time, if ever. If anyone is interested in my two brand new and unopened HS-24 drivers, let me know.
And I've made the decision to beef up the boxes for these BHS-24 drivers with a more robust design and matrix bracing cut by CNC. The box itself will still be made from the 1.5" thick Trupan MDF I have sitting to the side but the internal bracing will be upgraded from 1" hardwood dowels to interlaced cross bracing made from 13-ply birch, glued and screwed into place in custom mortises. The front baffle will still be two layers @ a full 3" thick and I have the baffle depth to fully recess the mounting flange on these woofers for a clean look.
This weekend is family time but I will post more updates when I can...hopefully the last of the archival progress pictures so this build moves into real-time progress.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
