GR Research Build Threads
« on: 6 Nov 2017, 10:10 pm »
I've been talking to Danny about an index of sorts linking individual build threads for all things GR Research. A sticky master thread kind of thing.  I suspect many would find them helpful in their own builds, but many are buried in the archives. Folks with existing threads are encouraged to LINK them here. It's not intended to be a massive compilation but rather a jumping off spot. I'll start if off with examples done over the years.

My LS-9's which have held up well over the years, a killer Line Array, but no easy build task.  Too bad they are discontinued!  I power them with Emotiva gear - XMC-1 Processor and (2) XPR-1 amps.

I broke out my AV123 X-Statiks just for a visual comparison to my Super 7’s.

To Sonicjoy on his build of the NX studio. Firstly, very nice job. I’m using it to guide my own imperfect build. Can I ask whether your suggestion to cut the no Rez sheets into 2, 5x27” and 2, 8x27” should really have been 2, 5x27” and 2, 7x27” since the sheets are only 24x27” total?

Thanks

Hi All, Wanted to drop in and learn about building some GR Speakers.  I am a beginner audiophile so know just enough to be dangerous . . . For the last few years i have been upgrading equipment and trying different ideas that may improve my listening experience. My last upgrade was ordering GIK room treatment . . . which arrives next month. For my next project I thought it may be fun to try to build some speakers and GR products come up regularly on YouTube from reviewers like New Record Day, these treads and others.  Sonicjoys NX studios - look great.  I listen in a relatively small room (10' x 13') - with the speakers on 13' wall.  The room is also our home office so not ideal placement.  Any thoughts?

Hi y'all. My original vision on starting this thread was to build an index to make it easier to find relevant build threads for everybody's reference. It's not mine to control but I would humbly request that it remain true to that vision.

Discussion would ideally be within the referenced threads themselves or begin a new one. Any new posts in old threads will pop to the top so they'll be visible. If you want to post photos of your work, there's another sticky just for that. If we continue down the path of turning this into yet another meandering hodge-podge, the point of having an index is lost. If I could prune it, I would.

Help me out here, so that this one sticky can remain tightly focused on it's original point...to provide an easy reference for all, now and in the future. I'm climbing off my soapbox now.
