    Speaker Cabinet Builder

    Mine was a little job - just 4 MDF front baffles. John did them in a jiffy , all nicely cut out using CNC and having the benefit of Jakey's Yammmy drivers at hand . My brother brings them home at the weekend. Can wait to get my paws on them
  7. Hi Steve Good to know u are well! Are u using the standard NS1000 crossover with the different midrange and ribbon tweeters? I been on a bit of a roller coaster since i posted. I got in touch with AE abt the dipole subs and was going to get a minidsp and follow your steps. I was advised that the way the mini dsp has to go A to D and then D to A again might not b great with analogue sources. and that dipole subs with open baffles would be ideal in largish rooms. What i am building now are larger cabs that will house the Yamaha tweeter and midrange and woofer from scanspeak that outperforms the venerable Yamaha woofer in every way - and this will be driven semi actively. Also constructing a 2 way analogue electronic X over will power 2 stereo power amps. Woofers are driven 'direct' while i will build simple passive 2 way X over using premium parts to handle the Yamaha tweeter and mid. All in the works at the moment... Ooogh, very cosy in there . 18 watts of valve power is all u need . My old sansui AU70 can make nice music with the NS1000 Cheers S

    New NS-1000m build

    JakeyB congratulations on your fine new NS1000 s. They look fabulous To digress slightly if you guys dont mind i am building a modified NS 1000 of sorts, driving them semi actively The woofers will be replaced by scanspeaks that go lower but would be optimal in larger cabinets. My attempts at the front baffles here in Kuala Lumpur were not satisfactory so guess what, i contacted John Woodhead and he has done the MDF fronts for me. As u can see the Yamaha tweeters and mids will be retained. The CNC cuts look perfect. All in hardly 48 hrs of sending him first email! My brother has picked them up and will bring them home in Feb. Thats a pic of one of them taken by my brother on John s workbench. I cant wait to get my hands on them and make up the rest of the cabinets. My brother also sent me a pic of Jakeys 's lovely cabinets a few hours before they were picked up. This thread and this Forum has been amazing for me. Thank you Jakey and John

    New NS-1000m build

    Nice.... i have just got another pair of these babies, newer with 6 digit serial numbers. invitable AB test against my older ones - it was obvious that the new ones sounded better . Quite a revelation but understandable. Drivers in good nick so it has to be crossover component deterioration Instead of just recapping i am about to 'semi active-ate' the old pair .

    New NS-1000m build

    Jakeyb77 thats looking very nice . I m new here and have just stumbled on yr thread. Its great that you are making an even sturdier box - not easy cause the original design was so good. I note that u used the cut out from the woofer hole to reinforce the back panel - like the original. Your woodwork on the baffle is outstanding. What will u be doing to the X over ? new caps ?

    Hi from KL, Malaysia

    Hiya All I am Shahrin M57, found this forum when i was Googling for info on the venerable NS1000 in the euphoria of picking up my 2nd pair in great condition. There s an excellent thread started by Mark M, and ive put in me question abt subs he has in his rig. Very glad there s this intro bit here to introduce myself. Well i love all sorts of music and have always loved vinyl. Aside from the NS1000 I am a fan of vintage Sansui and Thorens. Happy to be here
  15. Hi All I am Shahrin from KL,Malaysia. Love the NS1000. Picked up my second pair today - delighted with them. I found this thread. MarkM you have a lovely system. I am struck by the subwoofers which i understand are the 15 Dipoles by Acoustic elegance. Currently my Ns1000 s are driven by an AU111. How does one integrate the subs and their amplification into the system? Design of the H enclosures for the Dipoles would really be appreciated. Great thread and great forum . Thanks Shahrin
