Hi Dave. I have a question about stuffing. Is it the same like on the bigger brother? The Fhlite is so tiny i cannot do it after glueing all parts together. May you have some expert knowledge for a poor diyer?

Yes, damping is done the same as the other FHs. The stuff in the point has to be done before the last side goes on. I will figure out some numbers.

The plan linked in the 1st post is also updated…

Thank you very much for both of your advice/plan.

This project needs some time. Tried to realize a first quick build, but the OSB-panels in 12mm didn't like to get cut and smaller parts broke from the edges.
Now i have 18mm oak boards for the side-panels and birch multiplex 12mm for all the other parts.
The contour of the back is now more or less finished; more sanding is needed!
Tomorrow i start with glueing all parts together.

The first speaker-type will be the Aura NS-3. Got a different pair in a very nice 2,5l BR-enclosure. They are playing very low for such small beasts, i hope they are losing the typibal boomy sound of the BR-chamber

Getting nervous!

Hello everyone,
Hope you had a nice Canada-Day

My FHLite-builds are finished and in the "warmplaying-phase".
As written before i started with the Aurasound NS3 and my first impression...WOW!
They need some time for breaking-in but what 'da hell a really well tempered bass!
A much better full deep sound compared to the BR enclosures i build for a different pair.

No Pic No Truth so attached two pictures of my more or less fast build.
FHLite_empty.jpg FHLite_Aura.jpg
My highend testing setup is a Topping TP30 Tripath-amp, a super expensive Philips AEA200/12 Bluetooth-Adapter
and the good old Moto G1 with a lot of *.flac, di.fm and youtube on it

The Topping is a bit sensitive to impedance chages so its not the best choice to use the Aura without compensation.
But for some easy listening its enough. I think for the upper frequency i will add a tweeter or a 1" Aurasound NSW1-205-8A.

I really had a lot of fun with this build. For the sides 18mm oak-panels and for all the other parts as suggested 12mm birch multiplex panels are used.

Dave and everyone behind planet10; thank you very much for all the work and especially the complete free offered plans and advices for this community.
If you were not so far located i would invite you guys to a small BBQ

The Doors - Riders On The Storm......in permanent loop!

My very tolerant girlfriend likesthem too...the curve in the back seems to result in a high WAF At the moment we are enjoying a mix between Bob Marley and Massive Attack. They play much bigger than they are. Room is about 18m2 and listening distance nearly 4m...moderate Volumen that normal conversation gets painful, nearly no cone-movement!
