Re: Upgrading With Two Stereo Integrity HST12's

I logged in recently and noticed that some of my pictures weren't working! I suspect it was because Dropbox changed its hosting capabilities. So I'm adding pics from the build in case others find...

Re: Owen's Dual UXL-18 Sealed Build

Connector sealing:

For my 12" sub pair build, I used foam medium density adhesive backed weatherstripping (from Lowe's) cut in a circle and stuck onto the backside of the SpeakOn jack. I've also...

Re: Upgrading With Two Stereo Integrity HST12's

Thanks, I appreciate the compliment.

Regarding the placement, it was purely out of necessity. Room response + furniture restrictions = placement behind the sofa, but I needed to maintain plenty...

Re: Upgrading With Two Stereo Integrity HST12's

Not a problem! The single stage paint color is just great to me. :sn:

The first picture was taken when I finished them back in 2016. The second picture I took today in the location they've been in...

Just a long term update of the subs...

I decided not to build the grills. I've had no issues with the enclosures getting bumped, spilled on or any sort of contact other than need for a quarterly...

Lightbulb Re: Official SpeakerPower amplifier thread

I may have solved my own problem since I didn't get a reply. As a first time SP amp owner, I wasn't aware they came with no installation manual, so for the remote standby plug, I had to test a few...

Re: Official SpeakerPower amplifier thread

SpeakerPower,

My 4800 remote standby goes into standby when 12v is applied to the right pin, ground to the left (when facing the back panel). My Emotiva XMC-1 applies this voltage when the system...

Re: Upgrading With Two Stereo Integrity HST12's

My 'impatient impressions' snapshot:

Received the amplifier earlier this week. I powered everything up and "checked for leaks" using Battle:LA :innocent:

With everything confirmed to be sealed...

Re: Upgrading With Two Stereo Integrity HST12's

I'm still waiting for my amplifier to arrive. I decided on a Speaker Power SP2-4800-DP. It should be plenty of power. I'll report back once I get it connected and tuned...

Re: Upgrading With Two Stereo Integrity HST12's

I spent a lot of time finding strong bolts that had a small head to avoid eating into the surround, but not too small where it was barely hold from frame. Also, long enough to get through both...

Re: Sealed 15" Dayton DVC385-88 build

Thanks for sharing that. I think I've now got an achievable solution to building my grills for my project in progress after seeing your previous project.

Re: Upgrading With Two Stereo Integrity HST12's

I was thinking about doing that actually, but feared one breaking and scratching my finish. I didn't want to risk such a 'mission critical task' to Harbor Freight zip ties. I actually, just lowered...

Re: Upgrading With Two Stereo Integrity HST12's

I used 8ga KnuKonceptz blue power cable to connect the voice coils in series. I used Sound King 8ga red and black power cable to connect the driver to the Neutrik connector. To avoid any possibility...

Re: Upgrading With Two Stereo Integrity HST12's

I'm slowly nearing completion.

Tonight I've soldered cables onto the Speakon connector, pre-drilled and finally mounted the jack. I'm using 8ga cable internally.

I also machine compounded,...

Re: Upgrading With Two Stereo Integrity HST12's
