Just to document the wiring scheme for the Rythmik HX300 servo amp wiring for the 2x12 H-Frames:

Wire with heat shrink is the driver coil connections to Speakon, 1- Yellow = -, and 1+ Black = +

Wire without heat shrink is the servo coil connections to Speakon, 2 - Yellow = -, and 2 + Black = +

Have the TRS to miniXLR cables ready to try with the dspMusikLCD.

Wiring to the 8 dspMusikLCD DAC's to the amp channels will be:

Outputs 1 = GR Neo3 tweeter, 3 = BG Neo10 midrange, 5 = GR servo sub are left channel connections (top TRS connectors)

Outputs 2 = GR Neo3 tweeter, 4 = BG Neo10 midrange, 6 = GR servo sub are right channel connections(bottom TRS connectors)

Outputs 7 left and 8 right are direct wired input to DAC channels for use with a headphone amp or extra subs if time delay is added.

If you need RCA connectors, then TRS to dual RCA connectors can be used and the right channel (red) output is the + polarity for each channel.

The two modular 2x12 flat packs from Jay have arrived.  Boxes look in good shape.

Also have 4 - GR-Research SW-12-16FR sub drivers on order.  The two Rythmik HX300 amps are wired and ready.

Will try using a Duratex finish without the texture on these cabinets.  Have some black Duratex from Danny to try.

As time until the end of the year permits, will be doing the glue-up and trying the finish.  Then integrate them with the baffles.  The dspMusikLCD test crossover is done and ready for trials.

The 4 - GR-Research SW-12-16FR drivers arrive tomorrow.  All of the other parts are here for the subs. Then the build-up begins. 

The dspMusikLCD crossover is ready and lots of ChipAmps to use for setup.

All the flat packs and parts are here and in storage until early January to start building.  Then time for some listening!

What?  January?!  Why the delay?

I may have missed something earlier in the thread but until this point I "perceived" this build to be continuous from beginning to end.

It is not to be so?

The holidays have begun and I have a lot of family related travel until late January.

If I can fit building in, will post as I can, but that is my plan as travel starts this week.

OK, please excuse my sefishness and enjoy your holidays and family.  That time is far more precious.

Between this and the Megalith thread you have my attention, Mr. Hollis.  :thumb:

This design is exactly what I have been thinking of building. Waiting for Jan to see how it all goes.

Since you are close, a demo is possible once things are done.

Will keep everyone posted once I have more time to build the subs.
