Let's see, where did we leave off?
I got the second coat of paint on and let that dry. Then the VOTT stickers arrived
I am hoping to pick up the 803 horns this week. I'm still not sure which 15 inch drivers I'll use, 416 or 515s.
The price on either vintage driver is ...steep.
Anyway, the cabinets are done. Now just saving my pennies for the drivers
I pretty much got two of the three projects completed. I got the Oris horns mounted and the A210s painted. The Azura horns
are a different matter. All I have managed to complete here is to make large piles of sawdust and round disks and planks with 7 inch holes cut out
As you can see I am quite adept at making sawdust in more that one place. Days like this really make you appreciate the fine work done by the likes of Elgrau and PDR. Clearly I have a way to go.
My problem has been finding a way to mount studs or threaded inserts this close to the horns mouth. I think I'm going to need to find a way to make a flange extended so i can get the mounting holes far enough away from the horn mouth to mount the drivers. The flare of the horn screws this approach up.
The other thought was to make two rings a bury the studs like this. I decided against this because it moves the driver too far away from the horn mouth.
Anyway, that's where we are for now
