    I had another idea for the 22.5 ohm resistors and the resistors I'm using to replace the polyswitch, so let me know what you guys think about this. I'll put down a small dab of hot glue at each end, then run a small "rope" across the top of the resistor to keep it in place. I doubt the glue will actually stick to the resistor though, since foam tape won't stick at all. Might be wrong, but we'll have to see.

    One other question to go with that; when cleaning up/resealing the cabinets, which is better: silicone caulk or hot glue?

    Non hardening, Non flammable silicon.

    Using that long of resistor I might be inclined to build a stacked board like Vmxr does and run a jumper to the corresponding holes in gimpods boards. If done properly you would be able to use the pin socket as a spacer and bend the leads to double as standoffs. That would also free up some space for the little inductors on th main board.

    I just ran a bead of hot glue around the inside of the cabinet and called it a day..

    Use the leads as stand offs?? WTF are you talking about

    Look at the xovers I did. I bent the leads about an 1/8 inch out from the body at 90 degrees. When you solder the lead it acts to hold the resistor off the board. For having all the answers some of you ask some pretty simple questions.

    stfu.. Have you ever used a Duland resistor? There will be no problem keeping them off the board also I had my mills on my boards for over a year with no problems. There is no way to mount the dulands flat to the board I tucked little pieces of sonic barrier Under the dulands to take away some of the vibrations since they stick above the board.

    Silicone has no business inside a speaker cabinet and hot glue doesn't really seal that well on wood products. Liquid Nails or maybe acrylic caulk would be better choices. Smoothing out the bead (wear latex gloves) will force the product into the seams for a tight seal.

    I agree with you Jesse I just used what I had as I really don't feel thet cabinets leaked any air but since I had them apart and had two big bags of glue sticks I figured it couldn't hurt to go over the seams.

    You're right, hot glue certainly won't hurt anything. Silicone is another matter.

    I am intrigued by your statements, and wish to subscribe to your newsletter. Seriously, why is silicone caulk a bad thing? I thought acrylic got hard, while the silicone would stay flexible? Did you have a bad experience with an "enhanced" exotic dancer, maybe?

    Also, I've had a lot of coffee already this morning. I mean a lot.

    edit: never mind, found this as an explanation. http://www.diyaudioandvideo.com/FAQ/Build/

    The whole fume thing is why I said use the nonflammable type. Generally it wont have caustic fumes if it isn't flammable. Also with a random spark it could go boom if it had the right air mixture (not likely but not worth the risk in my view).

    I know.... when someone doesn't drink your koolaid and honor your lifetime achievement of 2 years on an audio forum you get your balls in a bunch...I understand. I have seen the same attributes before and know it takes a lifetime of therapy to overcome such woes. I don't hold it against you Larry. I really don't. It's a sickness that has no known cure...only treatment. The way to be rid of it for the most part is to TREAT others with a little friggin respect and not assume that the only experience they have in audio (or life for that matter) is the time they have spent online having to deal with people like you.

    There's lots of "sealers in a tube" options. The liquid nails is a good one but it too has some fumes that must be abated. (The acrylic Liquid Nails that is) I used that exact one in conjunction with gorilla glue to repair the side panels of the (dare I even mention them) 1c's.

    OH yea...Making my second pot right now

    Don't mean to butt in. But just out of curiosity i called my son who builds speaker enclosures. He uses glue or fiberglass.

    Girls, girls... you're both pretty. Now stop it.

    Chum, I can see a bead of wood glue. Not sure how well the fiberglass would work.

    But then, if you let the silicone cure at least 24 hours, it should be ok too. Well, more thought required. I just want something that will seal the corner and stay flexible to handle changes in humidity, the vibrations that will, obviously, be going on a lot, etc.

    Was that what he builds them with or reseals them with? I too don't quite understand the reseal with fiberglass thing. Seems a bit difficult to me. Unless hes talking about redoing the outside, sanding it down all that. Then I get it.

    I have no idea how the fiberglass works. But if you tell me i'm the prettiest, i'll find out.

    It appears you like to cause friction with the most helpful members here and once you start posting in a thread it starts to go downhill. You may want to re-think your attitude.

    Of course you're the prettiest. You're a pretty, pretty princess.

    Good observations and advice.
