DIY・自作 管共鳴( QWT / TQWT )スピーカー パート4 - 配線と最終組み立て / DIY QWT ( TQWT ) Speakers Part 4 - Wiring and the final assembly

On goes the terminal. The good stuff usually has two nuts on one bolt to stop it from loosening. Since for me, this speaker was very experimental, I used a lower grade one than I normally use. I would recommend a double nut terminal in most cases.
The manufactures usually use a type of terminal that is bolted on to a plastic mount, but that is to shorten the assembly time using a powered screwdriver so as to saving man-hours. Personally, I would like to have the least effect on the sound quality (For the record, not like I have tested the theory.) so I prefer to use these types of terminals.
The wires used were an OFC with Teflon insulation as I remember. The wire gauge (AWG) was 18 if I remember correctly.
There are 4 strands for each color, but this is to double wire the unit.
Like so. The reason why is that I would like to lower the resistance of the cable as low as possible so in order to achieve this. you would need the wire thick as possible, but at the same time that will challenge the assembly mechanically, so the double strands.
On goes the glue. You can see the baffle (front panel) connected to the rear panel. This for structural rigidity. The reason it's not connected thoroughly is that the reinforcements were from leftover material. This is because a 1820 mm by 910 mm ply wood (Japanese standard) was used.
I've mentioned before but if you do not have clamps, you could use screws after the glue has slightly dried for a precise build. This cabinet will have the edges shaved off at a 45 degrees angle so I wanted to avoid screws at that time. The theory is that smaller the unit the sharper the focus of the sound image/stage so I wanted to do a slim baffle as possible build. The structure being a cabinet width of 12 cm, shaving off the edges won't make much of a difference, but since it was an experimental build, I went for the most slimmest possible.

As you can see, the cabinet is quite slim even with the corners. A CD size width.
In Japan, it's called a "Mentori Kanna" which means chamfering plane. If you adjust the blade carefully and take your time, there's not much of a technique involved. If you are interested, I'd say go for it!
Yet a few steps to go.

She's the one responsible for the designing of the house renovation on our blog. She's been telling me she loved DIY, but I was l ike "But you wouldn't last long if you actually do the stuff no?" but I was wrong. She really likes DIY. A lot. Well, you can already tell by the photos in this article. By the way, her blog is here . まず希望の色と大きさのラインストーン、専用の接着剤、とんがった棒っぽいものと爪楊枝が必要なようです。そして当然キティ様のマウス。デコったのがAmazonで売ってるけど死ぬほど高い(数万円だったかと)ということで一番安い普通のを買って自分でデコることに。皆様にもお勧めとしてはGoogleの画像検索で検索して(カタカナと英語両方で見てみるのを忘れないように)気になる画像を見てお店かチェック。そうすると大概の物が安く買えます。 First, you seem to need the rhinestones you want color/sizes, a specific glue for rhinestones, then a pointy stic

DIYリフォーム パート30 - 化粧 / DIY Home Renovation Part 30 - Cosmetics

DIYリフォーム パート30 - 化粧  / DIY Home Renovation Part 30 - Cosmetics 今回でとりあえず撮りだめた分は終わりです。窓をやりながら化粧をやっていったわけですが、ほとんどの壁は珪藻土です。例の ネリード というブランドのもので、非常に塗りやすくておすすめです。編者もこれ以前はコテで珪藻土をぬるという経験は無かったのですが、簡単すぎて拍子抜けです。広告費が出てるわけではないですよ!ただ、水性とはいえ床に落とすと拭かなければいけないので、それなりに体力は使います。 These are the end of the photos that have been taken for the moment. We did the cosmetics for the wall alongside doing the windows, which was done with the Diatomaceous earth that goes by the brand of Nerido , and is insanely easy to apply. I have never used a trowel before but it was to the level that it was anticlimactic. And I'm not paid to write this! But I must warn you, even though it's water-based, if you drip it on to the floor it'll get messy and you'll likely use a considerable amount of energy. 窓枠はまだ未塗装です。 The window frames aren't painted yet. ここの右側の耐力壁だけ一部壁紙が使用されています。中々アクセントになっていてオシャレです。 The structural wall you see on the right side has a wallpaper applied. It works as an accent and mak
