Let's start with what I did last saturday.
|Here I have hammered nails into the board, wired some copper cable between them and soldered it. Also dry-fitted the components.|
|This is how it looks like. Still no components soldered to the board.|
I didn't do much more on the filter that day. I wasn't sure how everything was to be soldered so I had to ask Ingvar before proceeding. I sent him some pictures and he said I needed dual nails for the capacitors too.
So that's what I decided to do today. Add two nails and some more copper wire to each board. Then solder it to place. Add components and solder them to place as well.
|Capacitors soldered to the copper wire.|
|Both boards finished, all components soldered to place.|
Since I couldn't do any more on the filters I moved on to the baffles. I decided to fit all the t-nuts and mount a driver and see what it looks like. But first I had to email Ingvar and ask him how I was supposed to fit the t-nuts. I have never worked with such before so I didn't know if I was supposed to somehow screw them in place, hammer them in place or press with something. He told me that hammering them was good.
|First six t-nuts in place, only a lot to go.|
|Driver mounted to the baffle. For the finall install I'll make sure to have the binding posts pointing down instead since that's where the filter will be.|
|A front view of the driver mounted to the baffle.|
Enough playing, time to remove the driver and start with the remaining t-nuts.
|All t-nuts in place. I had to use a lot of force for the upper tweeter t-nut because it overlapped the one for the woofer.|
That's enough for today. Hopefully I'll get to start building these soon, I can barely wait! But first I'll have to finish the dMar-Kel70T, otherwise they'll never be done ;)
