Finished Tlah

Here's some pics of my completed tlahs and semi completed home theater. http://www.terraworld.net/rentman/Tlah/Speakers%20001.jpg The tuba 24 in the corner will be replaced with a table tuba very soon. I have to design it first. The room placement works out for it be DVD shelving and an additional e...

Use a guide board. Plunge the saw, make the cut just like you would normally. Be aware that you should not quite go to the end of the cut. Finish the corners with a jigwsaw. Otherwise you'll have kerf marks to fill.

The shoe on the circular saw tilts. Build an extra guideboard just for angled cuts. You will have to compensate placement with the various angles. Once you've cut a steep one with it, the edge will be off the mark for a shallow angle.

I need the second set of DR's to go just a tad louder and take the stress off of the one pair that I do have Thanks for the mention. You need another pair, with those subs. Move up your crossover point in the 140-150 range for the time being if you haven't already. You also get a big benefit in qua...

Buy a good blade. Don't scrimp. Makes all the difference in the world. I put a diablo 60t on my antique 9" saw and it cuts bbirch like butter. No tear out, no splintering, just smooth sweet cuts. Find a sharpener in your area. For 5 or 10 bucks he can make an expensive blade cut like new. But it wil...

Titan48 vs T24 Omni 10vsDR250

One of the local bands called and asked me to provide sound for a gig locally last nite . I said sure, as it was a good oppotunity to try out the as yet unfinished titan. So I feverishly finished the nite before. I at least got it routered and sanded. I did try it out at work yesterday with some rec...

Does the phrase toothpick to a knife fight have any meaning. :twisted: So I went and got the deathbox, and was immediately struck by it's weight. It's built out of 3/4mdf, and even though it's about 1/2 the size of the at, it weighs more, a LOT more. It's loaded with peavey 10" scorpion or black wid...

Leland's AutoTuba and how the 'Deathbox compares'

I fired up the autotuba for the first time. It had just been setting around waiting for the car to get fixed. I hooked it up to the bash 300w amp, corner loaded it and got rocked. :shock: I expected good, but not this good. I'm really amazed at this box. I can see why some guys are using them for ba...

Perfect Cutouts

This technique works for the larger cutouts such as in the Titan access panels. You need a table saw sled. Mark your cutout, extend the lines to the end of the board. Crank your blade all the way up. Lay the board to be cut on the sled next to the blade. Slide it forward/back until the cut farthest ...

Complete PA

I've been here a while and thought I should post a complete BFM PA review. I'm one of the few who hang here that have everything built from Bill for live sound. There's more folks who don't post much. 4 DR 250's, beta 10 loaded (old school), 16 piezo arrays. 4 t24's HL10c loaded. 4 Wedgehorns LA6MB ...

can I really drive them to the 400W rating of the speaker Yes you can. At 15 volts into 8 Ohms thats 37 watts. At 400 watts you will be approximately 10db louder. Twice as loud. Probably too loud. The cabs are that good. Their sensitvity makes huge amps unecessary. Cheaper to build boxes than buy 2...

From left to right on the bottom scale is the frequency. The vertical axis is the volume, measured in db. The more the merrier. You find your desired freqency, go up until you hit the measured line, read across to the the db vertical axis and that's the volume at that spot. The flatter the line over...

Understanding Amplifiers and Speaker Power ratings

Amplifier power and it's relationship to volume is commonly misunderstood. The relationship between between output and power is not complex, but it is a logarithmic scale not linear . For example in a Tuba 24 HL10c loaded: 1 watt at 1 meter spl: 102db. 10watts at 1 meter spl: 112db. 10 times the pow...
