    DIY audio: what are you building?

    Beautiful Jon! They came out so nice.

    DIY audio: what are you building?

    Thanks Jon. Can't wait to see yours! Not quite sure I understand what you're saying with the grain direction? Do you mean having the grain on the sides running at the same angle parallel to the front baffle?
  3. Ta. Seems a bit wierd that a reset procedure can help an amplifier. I guess the momentary switches are potentially all going through a microcontroller so that their states can be saved during a power cycle. And so that the same buttons can be multifunction for setting a few settings via hidden menus. Which in turn leaves it open for software bugs... It has been running well for the last couple of days since the reset.

    Resonance vibration issues

    Haha, I came across these at Bunnings by accident on the weekend too. They've got a really nice weight to them hey. I got a couple of the bigger slabs to cut into two as spacers between my 2-ways and woofer boxes.
  5. Replying to myself here. I noticed last night that pretty much all of the buttons had stopped responding nicely. Some would take 2, 3 or more presses to respond. Sometimes a long press seemed to get it to respond. Pretty bad. So I contacted the place I bought it from this morning and they got a recommendation from the distributor to try a factory reset procedure. It had been behaving itself so far this morning anyway (maybe heat or extended operation is a factor??), but I've done the reset now and will see how that goes.

    Yeah the ply on the front of the woofers has a fairly nice face. However I've decided to make things hard for myself and I've got a roll of Silver Wattle veneer to apply to the whole lot. That said, I haven't actually done a cut diagram to see if I've got enough from one sheet to do it all. May do the baffles in black or something.

    My Kairos 3-way project is starting to take shape. Got the woofers up and running last night.
  8. Hi All. I'm having some isues with my Cambridge Audio CXA60 Amp (I think). I've had it since Jan this year and in general it has operated trouble free. However within the last month it has occasionally been turning off within about 5 seconds of turning it on. After pressing the power button it will appear to turn on, however before doing its final "click" it just turns off again. It seems to eventually come good and stay on after repeated attempts to turn it on. As a side note. It has always needed a couple of presses of the power button on the remote to seemingly get a response from the unit to turn it either on or off. Does any of this behaviour ring a bell for any other owners? I've tried ensuring that the power cable is plugged in fully when it has trouble turning on. Doesn't seem to help. ta

    Great video. Always interesting to see others construction techniques. Thanks

    Yeah similar to my thinking. They can come off when listening. Any links to the products you used?

    Great thanks. If I end up doing grills for my Kairos I'll probably have to do something similar that can take the weight of a 6kg cat because of the angled fronts haha.

    Great job! Side question. Do you have any photos of the speakers and grills in the background? Are they diy metal grills? I'd love some more details on what you used and how if so? ta

    Just wondering if you coated the ply with a clear coat or something?

    They look so good!! What sort of finish did you use? Are the separate boxes attached to each other somehow? Or just sitting there? I suppose with those weights they're probably not going anywhere!

    I don't mind the look of raw ply at all, and quite like the accent of the exposed laminates.
