Assembling Top baffle, Woofer baffle and Bridge

The LX521 Construction Plans provide drawings and information for cutting wood and assembling the speaker baffles. Not everyone has access to the necessary tools, working area or skill to build the baffles from scratch. On this page I will document my experiences and observations when staring out with pre-cut wood parts and subassemblies from www.MagicLX521.com

Box 2 of 3

Pick up of a large (28 x 22 x 22 inch) and heavy box from the local Post Office, nine days after its shipment from Germany. Two more boxes are on their way.

Opening the box reveals good packaging for moderate handling during transportation.

The box contained a non-glued woofer baffle and bridge, two assembled stands and parts for another bridge and woofer, made of 13-layer plywood.

Box 1 of  3

The second box arrived 14 days after shipment. US Customs charged 8% of sales price for total shipment.

Packaging looked good. As I unwrapped the bubble pack I found that the plastic bag with dowels, screws, glue, etc. had ripped open. I collected all spilled parts

The box contained a woofer, bridge, connector brackets, wiring, glue, various screws and small parts.

 

Box 3 of 3 arrived 4 weeks later after having been incorrectly routed by the USPS or US Customs. Nothing was damaged, but the delay meant that I had other project priorities. Hopefully in July I will find time to assemble the baffles, otherwise I must wait until September 2013. 
But that's when I must see and photograph the Americas Cup Finals

To be continued .....

 

What you hear is not the air pressure variation in itself 
but what has drawn your attention
in the streams of superimposed air pressure variations 
at your eardrums

An acoustic event has dimensions of Time, Tone, Loudness and Space
Have they been recorded and rendered sensibly?
