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.

DIYリフォーム パート28 - 二重窓化のための木製窓枠・木製サッシの作成 / DIY Home Renovation Part 28 - Building of wooden window sills/frames for double windows

DIYリフォーム パート28 - 二重窓化のための木製窓枠・木製サッシの作成 / DIY Home Renovation Part 28 - Building of  wooden window sills/frames for double windows 一階に戻ってまいりました。写真が暗くて申し訳ないです。家の玄関側の窓枠と同時期にに取り付けられた愛想のない80年代のアルミサッシです。ここは取り換えずに、見た目改善のた内窓を作ります。 Now we are back to the first floor. And I apologize for the photo being dark. The windows are the boring 80's style aluminum models the same as the ones that were on the entrance side. The plan here is to not replace them but add internal windows for cosmetics. 先ずサッシの溝を切ります。こちらは浅い方で下になります。 First, we do the grooving. These has the shallow grooving which will go to the bottom side. こちらは深い方で上側の溝になります。 These are the deeper grooving which will go to the top side. 取り付けた状態です。写真だけ見ると簡単ですが、溝切に物凄い量のオガクズが出て掃除が大変でした。もちろんこれからの方が大変な訳ですが・・・。  Below are the window sills attached. It looks easy if you just look at the photos, but the grooving cutter gives out a huge amount of sawdust which is a bit of a task to clean up. Of course, the going gets tougher from

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
