A real shelf clearing day. The ice maker at the end of the hall was unplugged weeks ago and still has ice by the way. Next up is taking out the counters and shelves moving towards wall demolition. The counters are marvelously heavy. Lead lined perhaps. Also – very important – a materials order was placed including plywood and osb for the IB manifolds which will hopefully arrive Thursday and then watch out.
Happy New Year Everyone!!
Dorell came today and we chatted about the many upcoming changes and timing and ballpark costs. And the roof raise is looking to be a tough one to justify. Which is what I heard from Burt just the other day. The rafter condition can’t be certain; who knows what is square; there is a lot of demolition involved; we’ll see.
The four FiCarAudio 18″ IB subwoofers have arrived. Each one is 40lbs! The plan is to use the utility closet where the forced air heater resides with its pal the 76 gallon tank for the manifold spot for one pair and the other in the clock tower. I’m going to cut additional holes in each manifold so that if needed, 2 more pairs can be added. This what the manifold will look like, though I am most likely mounting the drivers with the magnet out and will probably have a layer of OSB inside a layer of MDF rather than 3/4 ply which means a 10 ton box before any drivers are added. We want full, rich sound rather than loud, and the large building volume requires a correspondingly large subwoofer system.
