    Re: Deadhorse Build Thread

    Greywarden,

    I'm bringing my DEQX PDC-2.6 HD processor to the SEC event so we could do a quick crossover with it if your MiniDSP set-up doesn't make it in time.

    No, no, still dead - Just kicking it again...

    Went to Lowes and picked up a bushing set, it's 51/64" which is about 1mm bigger than 3/4" so I don't know if I'll have a little wiggle room, or if I'll have to sand it out a little, we'll see.

    Working out some kinks with the bracing that was somehow sticking out of the front of the box on one of them... Doing the Baffles this weekend - hopefully.

    Ordered (2) Dayton AMP-100s and a MiniDSP 2x4 with the Advanced Stereo 2-way plug-in.

    Going to attempt to have these ready for the SE DIY show.

    Alright, got my braces trimmed up with the scrollsaw and then used a holesaw on the drill press for the windows in the bottom.

    Next, I devised a fancy method to glue the braces together properly... Here's some pics.

    Ordered a pair of the big boy terminals, a sheet of 3/4" Sonic Barrier, and the Jasper Jig 240 from PE lastnight.

    Ordered 3/4" Double Flute Stright Cut, 45* Chamfer, and 1/4" Spiral Upcut bit from Woodcraft this morning.

    The baffles will be a bit of a puzzle, but they should be done this weekend if I get my parts in by Friday.

    Currently gluing up the last brace panels, so I'll be cutting them up to fit inside the box today.

    Alright I'm back from Myrtle Beach, tattoo is mostly healed, and I glued up all the 1.5" thick side panels today. Tops/Bottoms are tomorrow.

    Send that storm down this way if you can. I'd build speakers out under a tarp if it meant we could finally get some rain.

    Got my wood cut today, I'll have to wait for this storm to blow over so I can cut the pieces down to proper dimensions...

    Yes! It was kind of scary raising the blade up through the 2x4 with visions of the blade kicking it through my body, lol. It doesn't look as good as I imagined it, but it's just too damn hot to get good work done in that shop. I still might end up bracing it a little more, but we'll see how it does making measurements, again, preferably this week.

    I like your test stand! Is there just a slot on the middle 2x4 to slide up and down? Very clever.
