Okay this is what happens when you try to do this type of thing from your phone instead of a computer. Somehow this thread landed in the for sale/classifieds section. No idea how that happened.
ANYWAY this thread is for sharing information and tips and pics about upgrades on your SDA's. Since we just had a major group buy on the dreadnought transformer and @toolfan66 stepped up and made some more of his much coveted cases and rings. There are about to be a lot of upgrades and mods going on this year. Let's consolidate it all in one thread.
Go ahead a post some pics! :) :D

    I had a question on Dreadnought wiring, so I'm pasting stuff from previous build posts here:

    Binding post connections from DarqueKnight's original 2008 Dreadnought thread. Note this is using the 800VA, but the 1000VA is the same scheme.
    Right Pin = Red/Yellow

    Right Blade (Negative Speaker Terminal) = Black/Orange

    Left Pin = Grey/Brown

    Left Blade (Negative Speaker Terminal) = Blue/Violet
    DN-inside-side-r.jpg
    DN-rear001-r.jpg

    Neutrik connections from F1nut's Neutrik Dreadnought. I believe this arrangement is consistent with Larry's latest batch of cases. For same-side Neutriks with 90deg connectors, see ER308L's post directly above.
    F1nut wrote: »
    Is there a chart here or one that you can post that tells me which wires I should soldered to each numbered tab?
    Red/Yellow (right pin) to 1+
    Black/Orange (right blade) to 1-
    Grey/Brown (left pin) to 1+
    Blue/Violet (left blade) to 1-

    Other quicklinks:
    agfrost's use of slightly different Neutrik's, Fastons, bolt info (use SS or nylon)
    Parts discussion on page 10 above.
    Larry's Dreadnought cases here. Only 5 left!
    F1nut's outriggers and spikes
    agfrost's cabling (you may want to order an extra pair of male connectors)


    Where do you get the speakons again?

    There's only one kind of BH5. You may be thinking of Sonic Barrier. I got mine from Sonic Craft.

  • Do you have to move the white batting over when you install the BH5?

    The batting goes in the exact spot as it did from the factory.The bh5 installs on the back wall and the batting will cover it when in place.I removed my batting,installed bh5 and then reinstalled batting.

    WHY I OUGHTA!! :D
    The ONLY upgrades that I've even done to any of my Polks was to replace the SL-2000's and SL_3000's with the RDO series. So this is ALL VERY NEW to me.That's why I started this thread,because I KNOW I cannot be the only one.

    I know you're not an idiot. You'd figure it out. Someone that's never driven in their life would figure out you need to remove your seatbelt to get out of a car, same difference. The batting would be directly in your way.

    That's not what I was talking about though. I meant do you have to move it to the side permanently or something.

  • Since the BH5 is supposed to absord the backwave of the drivers that is why I was wondering if you have to permanently move the batting out of the way to the side in order for it to work properly once it was installed.

    FWIW ---

    On your crossover build, we are doing dual SDA cables, NL4 Speak On - P = 1+/2+ B = 1-/2-

    The NL4 connector is wired up in a shotgun configuration in case you ever want to go wild with your SDA cable in the future... :p

    So as long as your wiring corresponds to that, you will be fine :)

    no it stays in the same place it too slows the back wave, its just the BH5 makes it mo better like you just added 10X the amount of poly which you couldn't really do.

    Man installing these Neutriks LOOKS easy..............(*drilling these cases turned out to be more work that it looked like because they are high quality and much thicker metal than they appear to be*) Good quality job @toolfan66!!
    If anyone needs or wants some black colored screws for their speakons I have plenty :)
