Re: Shiva-X 200L (~7 ft^3) build thread

Got the driver baseplate endcap on to the sonotub. Perfect fit, you can see some of the acrylic caulking (non acetic acid cure) gooping out:




I don't have any 6-foot clamps, so this was used as weight to keep the endcap in place. Also heavily caulked the outside seam.....air leaks will not be tolerated!!




Lots of dust and needs to be cleaned, but side shot of the driver and the counter-sunk binding posts:

A Quick tip for anyone reading this (since the OP has already done the gluing).

An inexpensive "reversible" clamp like this can be used to PRESS panels/parts together.



Looking at Favelle's photos, he's so close to the basement ceiling, I'd have used clamps reversed to press from the 2X12s above downward. A scissors jack from a car would also make a good PRESS type clamp, as long as you have something to wedge the project and the clamp/press with.

The weights you used Favelle should be fine, I'm just pointing out crafty solutions since lots of people will be looking at our build threads in these forums.

Ok, its done! For the most part. A few more cosmetic things need to be done but my friend can do that when it gets to his house.

Running some test tones right now. Got some major EQ to do....Sound is LOUD! Is it normal to only have the amp turned to like 3 or 4?

If you have a strong signal feeding the amp then yes.

How do I tell? The signal is coming straight from my sound card (3.5mm to RCA).

That thing is awesome! A little taller, and a person would think it's a pillar holding up the ceiling!

Maybe I misunderstand what you mean by "3 or 4". On my plate amps the gain controls are in the 12 o'clock position being feed by a receiver. Using a clock scale what is your gain set at?

Your sound card is giving the amp a fairly strong signal.
