Fair enough. I started assembling yesterday (with glue) and will hopefully have everything up and running this week.

Any news on possibly getting the boominators together on the festival this year?

I've made a Facebook page for The Boominator.. It will be easier to share pictures there and arrange a meetup without hogging this thread

Saturnus - contact me on facebook to get admin rights on the page

The page: The Boominator | Facebook

Saturnus (or anyone else), why wouldn't you set the filtering to 2.25 kHz on the Boominator Signature?

Got a couple of questions with my build:

1. Got my HP10W today but I'm not sure if there should be a hole in the center brace matching up with the hole in the magnets, or should I just glue everything to a solid plywood?

2. How should the wires be attached to the drivers? There are just 2 small plates with a hole in each sticking out from each pole. What kind of wire should I get?

3. How is the resistor to the tweeter supposed to be series connected? Isn't the resistor just a small wire with the resistance in the middle? Do you solder the speaker wire and the resistor wire together? :S

You need to solder wires to the speakers. There is a + and a - sign at each pole on the speaker, remember to solder the correct connection. Regarding wire, most copper wires would do just fine.

3. How is the resistor to the tweeter supposed to be series connected? Isn't the resistor just a small wire with the resistance in the middle? Do you solder the speaker wire and the resistor wire together? :S
You connect tweeters in parallel with the HP10W, but between one of the wires to the tweeter and the HP10W you solder the resistor on. So to answer your question, yes you solder the speaker wire to the resistor, and then to the tweeter

I have wrote to Saturnus in person, but maybe there are someone else than him that lives in Copenhagen. We would like to pay a guy a few hundred or maybe buy him some beers if anyone could use 30 minutes and help us with the wire job and such.

We are really lost about the resistor part and have no idea how we connect all the things.
