56Oval,

They're looking great, you're making some astounding progress of late, keep it up!!

I'm quite interested in seeing more of these tapped horns, will eventually be in touch with Paul to get him to give me a hand with some too.

Chris

Linc I'll see how it bends soon .

Chris I'm going to finish the first pair of 15" cabs up to HiFill primer then put the tapped horns together . Once there together Paul wants to do a couple of in room measurements before they go in the roof .
Well the tig welding didn't go to good ,due to the heat transfer the Sikaflex kept on getting dragged into the weld joint . So good old liquid weld epoxy was used .

Trimmed the alu-clad board next step, routing out the baffle area for a nice fit .

Even Chris

Pauls looking at selling his Rythmik sub drivers and amps .Might be worth getting because he already has the tapped horn design . Its a little bit smaller than mine .

Default SLowed Down to a crawl

After a week an a half the JB Weld epoxy cracked .
Out came the grinder and I removed the section and removed the Sikaflex behind the remaining allow .Thursday I'll mig weld new piece's in ,looking back I should of done this in the first place .
I ended up routing out the baffle area .
Held the jig in place with double sided tape

baffle fit , its tight so once I weld in the filler top & bottom panels I'll add an extra 1mm clearance .

I was a bit worried how good the BONDING of the Sika 11fc was . I had to use a Stanley knife and cut away while pulling the alloy piece off .

Looking good Mal! I've used those drivers before in my system a few years ago. They have some serious amounts of suspension travel!

HI Linc
Did you use the Alpines in your car system .

The bass cab's have been mig welded but in the mean time a mate has been giving me a hand putting the Tapped horns together .Ones almost finished waiting for glue to dry .
Dowelled the ends on the brace's and routered the removed the coating on the formply and aid in gluing .

I actually had a pair of the alpines as part of my original horn setup. They weren't horn loaded. Just in a sealed box under the horns. They play low and loud.

The wife asked if its going to be cut down to make a pair , I no and this is one of a pair . Next question was where are they going ,in the lounge room corners .

The BMS 4550 CD's have landed and I've ordered a pair of Celestion NTR21-5010 JD drivers for bass duties ,these will be partnered with an S3 Synergy horn . Whats one more project

Cheers
Mal
