Your Khanspires are a work of art too. I've always been a fan of Dayton.

You should throw up a recent pic of em when you have some time to show off those mad building skills, and to show others what we'll be comparing the towers to. The size of them alone is awe inspiring.

I only have JBL 190's for an A/B. While they are surprisingly good speakers for the price, they just can't hang.

Cold and drizzly = slow drying PL. rolleyes.gif

Braces in. Surround crossover boards drilled, loaded, and need to be soldered. Not much left on the mains. Surrounds begin middle/end of this week.

Awesome! Looking forward to the listening test.

You are the king of bracing. Gorgeous work. Outstanding job so far.

All I have to do is make it just as pretty on the outside.

Finish work is the hardest part. The patience to get it done and NOT use the speakers is always the hardest part for me. tongue.gif

Thanks mang. As long as you are happy and they perform, that's all that matters.

PM coming at you.

That's a pretty good copy of the crossover. smile.gif
post #137 of 325
Very nice. Looks like you could use a new router bit though. biggrin.gif
post #138 of 325
1. An opening has to be cut near the bottom of the front panel for the port output or does it somehow vent to the back?
2. I don't see a crossover published, is it available?

thanks!

Bill's TD12X design is kind of hidden away in the SEOS waveguide discussion folder so you might miss it when looking: http://www.diysoundgroup.com/forum/index.php?topic=73.0

1. Opening will be cut in the front.

2. The original crossover schematic is here: http://www.diysoundgroup.com/forum/index.php?topic=73.0

MTG90 used upgraded parts on the design. I can forward the list of parts if needed.

Thank you sir! Appreciate it. I usually go with a "sculpture" type looking thing of a crossover, but actually really like laying it out like that.

Bwhahahah. Nah, the bit is good, just should have not been lazy and used my table instead of free handing. Now my spiral up cut bit........that's another story. wink.gif
post #142 of 325
Well....thought I would have both done gluing up tonight at least. Didn't think it would take all my clamps and some for one. tongue.gif

Holy crap, 100 lb dumbell. I'm getting so out of shape I could barely lift my 65's lol.
post #144 of 325
Bwhahah.

Now come do 4 rounds of 10 100lb DB snatch and a 200ft sprint without stopping. biggrin.gif Great 5 -10 min workout.

I'm lucky enough to have a gym at the office. Actually going all out during lunch is not going to happen though, otherwise I wouldn't be able to work the rest of the day.

Ditto, 100 lb dumbells are not in everyone's workout regiment. I'm impressed!

They should be. Problem is, you need a spotter to do it safely, and that's just not gonna happen most of the time.

The speaker should be around 85 lbs or so. Lifting those can be my workout for a few days.
post #148 of 325
If you are properly doing lifts, the only movement you really need a spotter for is barbell bench. You just need to learn how to dump weight. Benching with DBs is the smart thing to do if you don't have a spotter. I rarely bench though.

I use that 100lb DB for snatch and swings.....and clamping. tongue.gif
post #149 of 325
Agreed. Unfortunately my rotators took a beating over the years from doing that.

If I could dump weight without needing to go to the gym, I'd be all over it! I like my beer too much. lol
