    TabaQ




    so i FINALLY started putting these things together. took me about a year to get off my *** to do it , but theyre coming along...

    http://coolcat.dk/bjoern/TABAQ_TL_for_TB.pdf







    i do not have a chamfer bit , so i used a 3/8 roundover instead. and yes , my cutouts look like **** , but my jigsaw skills have some a long way.

    also , the drivers he used are only available in europe , iirc. im using the US equivalent - http://www.parts-express.com/pe/psho...number=264-809

    just got to add the polyfill and pick up some the components for the filter.... dumb question , but does radio shack sell resistors , capacitors , etc..?







    it is ****ing HOT outside. http://weather.yahoo.com/forecast/USFL0316_f.html
    Temp:
    91
    Feels Like:
    104
    Humidity:
    63%

    Re: TabaQ

    looking over them , i think i may have put the speaker cutout too high up.

    it is about 4-5 inches too high. ****ing metric units had to screw me up.

    anyone know if this will **** anything up? or should i just go ahead and make another cutout and cover the first one?

    That *****.

    I would just build them again personally. MDF is cheap, you might as well build them right.

    yes it does.

    the wood i used was left overs from past projects , so it was already paid for. im moving in a couple weeks so i wont really have the time or money to build new ones anytime soon.

    what if i were to just cover the one cutout and make another below it?

    They used to, before they stopped being a store for electronics experimenters and started pushing cell phones and talking picture frames.

    Go to Mouser, Digi-Key or PE.

    you have any input on my screw up with the mounting hole?

    Re: TabaQ

    Try it anyway.

    TLs are amazingly resistant to builder ****-ups You'd be surprised at the problems that can be solved with polyfill and time spent playing with stuffing densities. My BIBs are two completely different speakers unstuffed vs. stuffed.

    Even when they did have a decent parts selection, their prices were so uncompetitive that you wouldn't have saved any money by shopping there.

    i wasnt too sure if the TL's were the more forgiving of box designs or not , ill give it a shot anyway. i would imagine it cant sound that bad.... and i do have ~3lbs of polyfill.
    as far as playing around with it , unless i put t-nuts on the last side , i wont be able to do much once its assembled.


    thanks jim.

    Re: TabaQ

    got them together.

    i got one running off the working channel of my t-amp. sounds great , but my positioning is terrible. ill just ride them out for right now and then when the time comes , ill build them properly.
