Re: SoundSplinter RL-P15 build

This is the top-cap, or the enginehood as i like to call it. it`s 4 layers 19 mm MDF and one support for the damping.

This is how it`s assambled, the dampingmaterial is a high density 100 mm fiberboard made for basstraps, not sure how it will work in the tube.

Are you planning to use any absorbing material inside the tube???...If you do, remove the wax layer before aplying any glue (I used the pink stuff and learned the hard way)

I did not planned to use any absorbingmaterial inside the tubewalls, but i use a 4" in the top-cap designed for bass-traps. did study some theory about damping and i am not sure how big difference it will make. I tried to move the wax layer and it was not easy, did grind the tube inside with sandpaper. Outside the tube i did erasure with a knife and grind it with sandpaper, i realy hope the glue is fixed properly. I dont like to learne the hard way this time, used to many hour on this build.
Anyway thanks for your reply

Sandpaper is not enough (I used a sander too); what I endup doing was to remove the layer completely (tube is made from thin layers of paper).

Good luck ...I'll wait for the finished product pictures

Re: SoundSplinter RL-P15 build

Wow! It sure looks amazing. Could we get a size comparison with a person standing next to the tube?

Did you try it yet?
