Cut my boards today and screwed up the first one. Used a ruler as a guide and it moved during the cut. Not happy!
The only thing that worked was my router and the template for the driver cutouts. Drivers sit recessed and flush.
Tomorrow I'll have to make the boards match.
You live and you learn I guess...

)
A trip to Finland in February for training
And numerous other distractions...
I've finally drawn the first lines for my speaker panels. Once it stops raining I can start cutting...!

... for mankind, but one giant step for me

After sucking big time in Halo, In felt like I needed some positive experience today, so I hooked up my CHR-70s to my trusted, semi-retired NAD.
Took about 1h, involving looking for my cutter to cut some old CAT5 and strip the wires, do the actual cutting and stripping, hooking up the receiver, connecting the cables and turning on the whole assembly.
And *drum roll* FM94.9 played Motorhead's "Ace Of Spades" Can it get any better???
First listening impression: sounded a bit like AM radio, but given the way the drivers are hooked up I'm not really surprised...

in other news: parts express delivered some fluff and my terminals

hmmm...the plan calls for 5 degree angles for some cuts. How to do those? Just sand it away?

So I finally decided to build my first set of speakers: The Frugel-Horn mk3.
Reasons:
  1. Fairly high WAF
  2. Looks good (see point 1)
  3. Can be built with "cheap" components
  4. Reasonably challenging wood work
  5. full range driver = no crossover needed
Most of the stuff I ordered so far I ordered based on recommendations / suggestions from the people here like Planet10 Dave, ChrisB and others.

Some stuff that I ordered on Monday arrived already :-)
2 CHR-70 Drivers
CSS UltraTouch insulation

Just now I ordered some terminals, a circle jig (jasper #400), and Acousta stuff
