i only have the 5ply 12 mm wooden board and i have not made any cuts yet.


any suggestions how to fit the boominator mark 2 with the new design HP-10 w ?

thanks everyone
It has been discussed before.

Use masonite board between the cabinet wall and the speaker (this is usually 3,5-4 mm thick) and then combined with the speaker grills you should be able to fit them there just perfectly. Otherwise... Use your imagination..

No not going to festival

No I have not in a hurry, but it seems pretty hard to get hold of Horn bubble tweetwers / Motorola.

Anyone know where to buy them without waiting for 30 days?

I ordered 4 pieces Paudio HP-10W a month ago from PLUS Elektronik.de
the last 2 weeks they claim that they have been on mission,
and this week they claim that it is off all week??

appears to be an extremely frivolous small businesses with few employees?
no service culture.

Finished and ready to go Sound quality is nowhere near the original boominator, but it's still loud, and that's the most important thing for me and my camp. It's the 8 ohm system so it will drain half the power and thus play half as loud (-6 dB).

I'm pretty satisfied with the weight and size. It's easy to carry around And the LED light is kicking aarsh in the dark. But still, Saturnus. The first boominator I built had way better sound quality - even with replica piezos.

I will go for the full boominator next year, just didn't make it this year because of the out of stock problem in Europe.

Thanks for answering all my posts and helping me out with difficulties, free beers on me

The happy bunch!

Class D Amp Pr0n

Unfortunately I don't get to take the AMP9B with me this time around, as it simply takes too much power for the batteries I have.

So AMP6B and the Lepai 2020A it is.

Hi,
I am about to buy this panel KeryChip WEBSHOP - solceller, solcelleanlæg, tilbehør which the shop said that i could take of the frame and get down to about 44cm x 29cm which is almost exactly as the size (on one dimmension) of the Boominator box.

What would you recommend i do to mount it ? Should i bother to use the router and dig in 35mm depth so i can fix it in the wood on top of the boominator ? The issue is that i do not think i use the router and leave only 1mm wood left on the side with 30cm.

Ideas are welcome

donnib

If you have more than 35 mm thick ply you can route the panel in :P That's almost 3 times the thickness of the ply recommended for the normal boominator.

Honestly I just think you should fasten it with screws on top, so it's also easily removable. Your choice.

Ups.... silly me. You are right. Well well.... will see when i get it. I guess it's not 35mm thick without the frame but will see. It just looks silly on top i think.

No it doesn't

Here's a pic from Darkwithin's panel

It's not the same panel though.. But I still think solar panels look pretty sexy.

I actually just tested how affected the treble was by my wide, slim horn going from 1800-20000 hertz. It's actually pretty noticable when going from side to side and it laying flat on the ground as it does on the pictures. Though if you raise it up, santding on the side without the port, it's not as bad.

It's also starting to sound better than before. I guess the burn-in effect deals a bit with the crappy sound right now. But it's worthwhile to think about before making a stereo like mine using these kind of horns. I'm still rather new to hifi, but dispersion will definately be a valuable consideration from now on.

Thanks for pointing it out, Saturnus (was some time ago)
