  1. The Dude

    Klipsch Parts

    I thought he lived in Indy?
  2. I must be seeing a different ad as the one that Tiger posted takes me to set that is listed at $3195 for about month. Also cant tell what lenses he using Volti or FT. Is there something I am not seeing? Tweeter looks like the Beyma version of the baby check which I thought Volti used a lot.
  3. 2 bummers, Neither of the 2 aren't the end of all things. Bummer 1. My holes for one of the drivers are off, so I had to improvise and use wood screws to mount the one driver. Bummer 2. Sub is done but no one around to help me carry it down stairs and its too windy for me to attempt it by myself. And it turns out I didn't have any 12 awg scraps laying around.

  4. That's what we are going to use, some scraps I have laying around. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  5. Yeah, but a I always attempt to use what may be considered the correct part first, if not, then I get creative. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  6. I'll run 12 up to the sub no doubt, its about all I run on all of my systems. I was talking more so in the sub, from driver to driver than to the connector. I suppose one would ask, "if you already have 12 up that point, why not internally as well?" Only because I was able to locate locally the correct 3/16" spade connectors for 14 awg, but not 12.
  7. Claude, I am glad you brought up guage of wire. Does anyone see a problem with wiring these in series with 14 gauge or should I go 12? Hopefully dropping in the woofers tonight along with wiring. Then all that's left is access panels and carrying this baby beast down stairs. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  8. With wiring in parallel vs series wouldnt it make it so one is more efficient where as the other has more power handling? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  9. There she is boys, just need to mount the drivers and finish the access panel. Ran into an issue when assembling the last big plate, but at the last minute I was able to reach in an knock it into place. Curious to know what the difference is between the wiring, guess I have until Wednesday to figure it out. One quick note, I need to make sure I do a better job at cutting and installing the batting. One thing I will say since I followed some of my tips and tricks from before, things did go together alot smoother and my edges are alot more flush. Just have to assemble the second one then I will paint. At least for now I can focus on getting this into my basement and tuning it this weekend. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  10. I am curious who the former engineers are with PHDs from MIT? Not saying its not possible, but that seems to be a lot of knowledge.
  11. This is the whole reason I bump this thread, I want to make sure I get this correct this time.
  12. I wish i had this drawing earlier when I was creating my driver access panel, no big deal. Now I have them here so I can easily access for future needs or for reference for anyone else making these. [mention=11944]Wardsweb[/mention] Do you recall having any issues attaching the last large panel after the others have been glued and dried? During my mock up this afternoon it was a bit of struggle getting the last large panel on, I am sure this is due to me not having the ability to CNC and everything being close to perfect. It did seem to help once I cut my outer two panels for access and exit, things were easier to shift and line up, maybe final assembly wont be so bad.
  13. Now that I understand more how the access panels mount, I wish I would have stopped my dados on the edge to give me more meat to screw them to. Now I will have to get creative, but dont think it will be too much of an issue. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  14. Progress so far, all outer dados cut, all screw holes pre drilled, one complete unit mocked up. Just need to cut the mouth opening, access opening, driver cutouts (which I am dreading).Disassemble and re assemble with glue. Then on to assembling the second one. I wish I had an easier way to cut the holes for the drivers or should I say an accurate way as the last two attempts didn't measure up. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
