Default my pre amp

I a have an Adcom preamp that has been giving me issues for years, Ger helped me fix it via phone in a matter if minutes.
This will be kind of short and to the point, i will explain details as best as i can, the pics are only #'s on the computer, so some might get mixed up. please bear with me on this.
The next post will be the drawing i thought about, not knowing that someone famous, had allready had the same thing in his own home. mine is different, but weird coincidence.

Default Smoothing the stats

After we recieved these, they had to be cut in half using a very nice band saw(CharlieM) and a pneumatic sander sander to smooth the edged, you will find a little later that it needed a LOT more sanding( thank you Clavin for catching that one).
That red ball? if you want tu scuff or remove debris, thats the ticket. I use it in prep work for Rhino Linings, it will scuff paint and clear coat, but not harm or indent, grind metal. used it on the front and back of the stats, very smooth and very fast. If anyone needs one, i will be more than happy to post their site, its just not in front of me now.

Default Charlie Jig

Charlie has a very neat table saw jig or rather alot of jigs, this is one of them, consistant cuts and fast. Even a plunge router to recess the sub on the TL's, I believe there are some pics of the TL from start to finish.


The TL is a 1 quater wave guide with longer vents as it leaves the end of the chamber. Alot of poly fill , the exact amount, i forgot, but i think it was 1/2 lbs per 1cu. ft. air space. either way, they sound great. Thanks to Ger, and that Behriger crossover, there will pics of that as well.

Default Jaged edges

This is the last thing you would ever want on an ESL, Jaged edges. here are some pics of what you dont want and some of what you do. NO pointed edges at all, smooth as you you can with what you have. My open area (51%) was difficult on the long side, had to smooth every hole on four panels and smooth again. It payed off, they work perfectly.

Default sample using rhino bed liner

I think this worked very well as a "test" item. consistant, but i had made modifacations on the gun, sprayed at very high pressure, but reduced the anount of material coming out of the gun. I wish it didnt catch over spray as the test sample was smooth and obviously flexiable. It was one quick coat, very quick, per side. Charlie has the sample, no comments so far, so I hope thats a good thing. check it out,
