Alpair 12P small reflex enclosures ready for the first listening session (2nd part)
A lot of excitement today. I was able to finish the assembling of my new speakers. The cabinets are stained presenting a cherry wood look and covered for protection with a clear coating. After an appropriate period of time to fully dry, today I started by cutting the Ultra-Touch Denim insulation ( over here used as sound absorbent)and glue it to all the interior sides of the enclosure. The last piece was installed after securing the speaker’s banana plugs. The wire connecting the banana plugs to the driver terminals is the same as the one used to connect the speaker to the amp and is a 12 gauge Auvio (sold by Radio Shack) high purity 99.95% OFC and silver plated copper. Screwed back the detachable bottoms and here we go….can’t wait to listen to their sound…
Just one “little” concern: kids and dogs…I am looking now for a solution to cover the drivers with a grill for the periods when I am not listening.
