Been out of town for 2 weeks.....back today and whats at the post office??
6 big boxes......
I forgot how much stuff Danny packs into these!
The Jupiter caps are cool looking.....the Bigger PAudio co-ax are just that...BIGGER
I've unpacked everything to check for damage....looks good....its amazing how
much floor space all the parts cover when laid out on the carpet.
Its been quite a while since my V-1 build...they were the last project, so I'm really looking forward to making dust...
I neglected to answer the questions asked on this thread.....sorry, working out of town
makes me spend just a little time on the interweb....but I've taken almost a month off
to look after the farm....(thats what I told my wife anyway, its really to build Super Vs)...
while my wife and daughter travel to France.
So yes, I want to put the x-over in the angled compartment, but I want a bronze plexi glass to cover it so you can see it....I did this on my V-1 Servo amp cabinets but it was too dark, you could barely see inside, this time will be much lighter.
Speaking of the amps, I've yet to design an enclosure for them. Spending tme with my V-1s I found that I played with the controls a lot, prob more than I should...but measuring with REW and placing two additional subs in the room I found myself tweaking a lot, so I want something that gives me better access to the rear...I'll have to figure something out.
I'm going to build the whole thing out of MDF, the sub compartments will be 1/2" Kerf cut to form the round, both inside and out side bends, this will leave a 1" gap between....the lower box is 2" wide...the void will be filled with a polymer type of thin set, these will be very heavy and inert.....I hope. Kinda like sand filled only concrete base instead. The inside void will be sealed first (probably Weldbond or diluted white glue)so the "wet" dosent ruin the MDF.
Thanks for the tip on Sketchup....I'm old and computers are still a mystery to me for the most part.
I'll take pics of all the parts Danny sent and post them later.....tomorrow its buying the
sheet goods day...I can hardly wait. I'm like a 52 yr old kid waiting for Santa.....
