  • Anti-vibe bases in billet

    I was impressed by the high-impact poly foam on my billet 5JR crossovers and decided to make some better bases for my shop amp and CD that take some abuse...
    I cut super thick grooves for fatter O-rings and will glue them directly to bottom frames with Aleens. The glue is now a favorite....

    They are definitely more lively and still yet don't get on your nerve like the SL1000s do...
    I ordered the 0.5 ohm 12watt mills resistors to try, but as is they are not imbalanced from the mids or lows.

    I also made some 2" id x 3" od 3M 1/4" thick felt pads for the storage/shipping boxes so the domes don't get assaulted by the postal workers lol....

    Finished 2nd set...

    Tracks with low sax notes playing thru a factory 5Jr crossover as the 4 set screws are tightened on a criss-cross pattern is the way to go. They are easy to misalign and will sound veiled if tightened down incorrectly....

  • Re: Cardas thruholes.... 1/2" or 13 mm?

    Got a couple sets of the billet Monitor plates done.... I also rotated the mount bolt holes 45 deg. on these. It just makes them even easier to install by drilling into fresh MDF.
    I ordered the Dayton Gold posts to see what sleeves/spacers need to be done to install...

    Lol....
    Mills has a 0.5 ohm resistor you should try. I'm going to order a pair and test on these sl1000 when I get a chance to rebuild them with the bare silks just like yours. Maybe even jumper them, if they blow out its cheaper than blowing an engine haha...

    The Dining room XS-Jrs are getting their proper XS Billet terminal plates....
