The finishing touches...
Fantastic work VR3!!!
Very nice work Trey. Clean and neat - love the p to p wiring. Looks like a cost no object Xover rebuild - $400 in resistors alone!
"Science is suppose to explain observations not dismiss them as impossible" - Norm on AA; 2.3TL's w/sonicaps/mills, polyswitches removed, Lg Solen inductors, RD-0198's, MW's dynamatted, Armaflex speaker gaskets, H-nuts, brass spikes, Cardas CCGR binding posts, upgraded IC Cable, Black Hole Damping Sheets (3" strips) installed on back wall behind MW's & Tweeters, interior of cabinets sealed, AI-1 interface with 1000VA transformer
The resistors were not to bad, only $2.50 a piece
That is some damn nice work! some of the nicest I have seen, These do use a 130uf cap on the low end right?
Well a 130, 65 and two 34's right? A 130uf must be the size of a coke can!
I just looked at the schematic I wonder why Polk used a 65 and 130 wired in parallel? cost effectiveness probably?
Clean and neat truly professional looking!
Very very nice work. looks awesome.
One thing i couldn't see in my mind. How thick was the plexi and the threaded rod? The reason i ask is i am trying to see in my mind how solid this is and/ or how prone to vibration it may be from the sound.
Again; looks great, congrats to the owner.
The "plexiglass" is not exactly "plexiglass" it is a material designed for circuit boards and that is very very dense. It is basically the thickness of a super nice circuit board. After all of the components were loaded there are nothing more than a thud! :)
The itself definitely does not rattle... :)
Looks beautiful, top notch professional job. I would definitely be tempted to leave the crossovers outside the box to show them off... but that's a lot of wire to deal with.
any updates on how the 198 tweeters sound or did you go back to the 194.
Thank you sir!
As a professional policy as well as personal I have decided to not do any non-Polk approved modifications anymore...
With that said, I believe the owner is happy with the overall sound of these! :)
