    Default 800va Dreadnought build

    That transformer is a tank :)

    Not quite finished yet but close, going to deaden the chassis a bit before shipping.

    Great looking transformer. Am I right in seeing all connections being handled in one multipole connector per channel?

    Trey,

    As always, well done. Great idea to use the Neutrik connectors.

    As if you don't have enough to do, now you're getting into the Dreadnought business!

    Hey guys!

    Thank you!

    This is for a client using my Monastery build 1.2TL - when I do this I use shotgun style wiring for the SDA cable which translates to a 9 awg SDA cable. So IE: 1+/1- = PIN, 2+/2- = Blade

    So as you can see in the picture, each wire goes to a specific number and is wired together at the plate when we plugs them into his speakers. If he were to sell the dreadnought down the road a bridge connector would have to be put in place or the next owner would have to wire theirs the same way.

    As far as pricing -

    Plain aluminum case, the larger of the 800va transformers, NL4 connectors, tech flex, disconnects, upgraded rubber feet, dampened chassis, 1 x 15 ft 13 Awg Supra SDA Cable, engraved plates for rear, basically a drop in addition to a speaker we have already modified would be $500 + Shipping/Paypal

    If you wanted to go to a powder coated chassis and the upgraded cable it would be around $660

    Very nice Trey!! Did you have the box custom made?

    No I'm not going to make one, I have four of my own that I made.. LOL!!!

    I chuckled a bit ;)

    The enclosure is of Chinese origins, it originally was straight aluminum and I had it powder coated black. It looks mighty purdy in black though! ;)

    Thanks again guys!

    It was an EBay seller, took a while to find a chassis that fit the dimensions I needed.

    I drilled out the NL4 connections, that wasn't factory.
