  1. This weekend I am going to switch to BC's kit since I already have it. Thread has me curious, I post my results,
  2. Understand just didn't look at pic closely. Wonder what happen to the orginal cabinets, parts look to be in good shape.
  3. I would use a good birch plywood for the box and good quality 1 inch mdf for motherboard. Chorus 1's have I believe a 2 4inch ports, many people have used 7 inch tubes in the ports o improve the bass. Once build Vermeer to your liking. If you get all the materials first you should be able to build in a weekend'. Might want to rebuild crossovers while they are out.
  4. I think the k 510 has been discontinue and may be hard to find.
  5. Pair of klf 10`s and an entry level Yamaha receiver for 250.00. I live up by 285 and Peachtree industrial. Let me know if interested and I can send details on equipment.
  6. It's been a long time since I stripped them, sorry no pics. I have another sw 12 in black I recently bought I'am going start strip this weekend. Going to remove the woofer and radiator and only use stripper if possible, will only use a high grit sand paper if I have to. If memory services me I used stripped, putty knife, and a roll of paper towels to strip the other 2 speakers, no sand paper. Unfortunately the stripper today is weaker so may have to use sand paper. I avoid using electric sander especially orbital ones, they can leave small swirl marks in veneer you can not see till you paint or stain. I will give you an update in a couple days.
  7. I have stripped black paint from klipsch academy and sw12 sub with good results. Both were originally oak Verneer painted black; success with yours might depend on type of wood/finish.
  8. Do a search for - klipsch k 510 diy audio Thread is - Smallest Footprint Horn and Driver that can reach 500hz Let me know if you find it.
  9. My front zxpc are 17 x10 and 11 3/4 deep - long throw. Looked at diy audio reommend zxpc are18 x 10 only 8 inches deep, OP stated Polars are similar to a k 510. I am going to try and build a k 510 this weekend, if it does not work out I am going to try the short throws . Thanks for the help Bob and everyone.
  10. Ok thanks I will check it out. Using zxpc's RCL but there too deep for my rears.
  11. I am trying to a build a 510 replica for rears because of it's shallow depth, 5.1 system for music. I am hoping with the horn measurements I can use my touch screen laptop and create top and bottom rib/template of the horns curves. I toyed with mdf and had some luck with making curved panels. I believe it's called a Kell cut, (maybe not) where you want the curve you cut approx. every 1/4 inch the length of panel going almost all the way thur panel. Once cut the mdf can be easily curved, tried with plywood but had better luck with mdf. If I can pull off making a decent/close 510 horn I will be using a single 12 kappa c to match fronts speakers kappa c 15's.
  12. Thanks Tom your help is much appreciated.
  13. I seem to remember reading there a 5 inch depth, unless posted different I will go with that. Thanks !
  14. Understand but still need to know depth, is 5 inches correct? Thanks!
