Dreadnought Cases...........

  • Mine boxes full of treats came in Thursday, all I can say is WOW!. The rings are perfect and the Dreadnought case is a work of art. Larry you rock!

    Was up until 2:00am Thursday night working on a 3.1tl speaker. Needed some wood trimming due to the seemingly random placement of the interior bracing. The second speaker was drilled Friday night after work and they slipped right in with no interference at all. Got everything back together this morning and have been in bliss all day. The new caps and inductors need a few hundred hours of burn-in but I can already tell the bass is more defined. Ran my daughter out of the living room with some Pink Floyd but she rolled back in when Track 5 started blasting and she was soon singing along to "Mother". No idea where she learned the words, she's 9!

    Next up is one of the 1.2tl's but I just remembered it already has threaded inserts. How do you guys deal with these? Drill the old inserts out or just use the template and drill new holes 5-10 degrees off center rotation?

    Use a hex head bit. The old inserts are threaded and removable. Install the rings the same way you did on the 3.1's.
  • Thanks for the tip JayCee, I'm on it today.

  • I keep forgetting to ask are the rings just drop in or is there something else which must be done?

    Taken from a recent Audioholics reply regarding "Club Polk" and Polk speakers:
    "I'm yet to hear a Polk speaker that merits more than a sentence and 60 seconds discussion." :\
    My response is: If you need 60 seconds to respond in one sentence, you probably should't be evaluating Polk speakers.....

    I opened the box and installed Neutriks last night in anticipation of getting a big honking transformer in the near future. The build quality on these is stellar! Thanks again Larry!
