Now that I have a lot more time
I need to finish some speaker projects, and try new ones
It looks like everybody has moved onto the latest and greatest new speakers, and I am still messing with the X series
That's ok, I hope to catch up soon...
I want to finish my X-CS Encore center and upgrade my X-LS Encores for my small room set-up. The stock Encores sound great, but now that I have a lot more confidence in soldering on PC boards, I am ready to upgrade
I don't yet have the X-CS Encore kit. Does anyone have the crossover exact external dimensions, especially the mounting hole center to center spacing (L&W)? I want to glue the front baffle on the cabinet before ordering the kit so I can start the finishing process. It would be nice to have the crossover mounting holes pre-drilled.
Here's some pics of my latest progress, using splines on all joints really makes the process a lot easier. It has allowed me to dry fit all parts except baffle and back. This allowed me to mark the locations where the damping material goes exactly, which worked perfectly, and should work the same with No-Rez
The glue-up was done with thickened Epoxy which allows a lot of time to work, and doesn't require heavy clamping or as many clamps as wood glue does. The splines aligned everything so well, it was easy to put together without worrying about something slipping
It's been my experience with using epoxy is that it helps prevent seam print through..
This is a 'BIG SPEAKER BOX'
