New project: Loudspeakers for Chickens new house. DONE! Lots more pics!

Recommended Posts

well you guys know some of the hold up on the "hooptie" (chickens OTHER caddy) was that he was gettin his new house built and its no real priority.....but i get a desperate call after he moved in last week.  Somethin like "my new surround sound sounds good and all but i tried to play some 3-6 Mafia and it aint loud enough"...in other words the red flare was shot up in the air and i seen it.

So i head up to take some measurements and he decides he wants it to be BADD, like everything we do so thats whats about to happen.  Keep in mind he has DOPE surround sound sunk into the cielings and a 63" plasma on the wall so this is NOT for home theater this is for MUSIC, ie 2 way loudspeakers for when its time to shake the house.  I decided if he wants "badd" then he'll get "badd".....heres the stats.

Two, 7 foot towers......one on each side of course.

EACH TOWER will hold

(2) 15" Fi BTL single vc subs (dual VC but prewired under the dust cap at 2ohms for me so its less hassle)

(4) 6.5" mids (i forget the name but Scott designed them so they gotta be good)

(2) Vifa tweets

Towers are ported with 130" of area and 30" deep.....tuned to 27hz with a seperate 1ft3 box inside tower to isolate the mids/highs from the subs.

Of course he will need power so today i bought him

(2) Crown XTI 4000 (3200 w) for bass

(1) Crown XTI 1000 (1400 w) for mids/highs

(1) Behringer Ultra -DI Pro D1800 (for converting unbalanced inputs into balanced so we can use his reciever with these amps)

Custom Crossovers designed and built by Scott

Behringer Crossover

boxes are under construction right now i only have about a day into them but 5 sheets of MDF later and i still need another one.  At 7ft tall, Its the length thats killin me...

so dont laugh to hard because home stereo isnt my expertise but not a bad start, eh?

oh ya, i know they are still rough, gimme time they should be cool when done and LOUD AS FUCK TOO........i would hope at 4600 watts. :D

EDIT: MORE PICS

might not seem like a lot of progress but when you do towers, everything you do needs to be done twice.  Heres todays work.

Now its time to build the boxes inside the boxes.  This is a 1 ft3 box that will house the 4 6 1/2's so they dont get obliterated by the 15's.

this is where it will go.  The last pic i post will explain it better.  I need a cut-out number for the 6.5's that are going in that spot before i can cut them.  I should have that tomorrow.

i photoshopped in some circles to show where the mids and tweets are going to be.  It will all be countersunk as well after i add another layer to the faceplate.

im not that deep into home setups, mainly the 12v world......but ill soon find out  ;)

oh ya when this is done its back to the other caddy and T15K.......as you can imagine, his new house comes first and now that its done (mostly) we can start focusing on that project again (when these are done anyway).

update 1-10-07

made some screens tonite....actually just the frames so far, ill get the rest of it done tomorrow.  I didnt use grille snaps im using Neo- magnets.  They work so good all you need to do is get the grill close to the right spot and it pulls itself to the place its supposed to be.

Steve, I don't think it looks bad at all. As usual, your enclosure build is solid, clean and professional.

I would say post flex vidz when you're done but I don't think chicken (or anyone) wants a house that flexes. LOL

Good work man. Keep the pics coming.  :D

LOL...now that's just wrong. Picture waking up at 3 in the morning with all the lights off. You walk to the kitchen for a snack,

and just before you get there you are CLOSE-LINED by an all-thread rod. I bet chicken would like that...LOL
