''The Phoenix Rises''

Jah youth lost all his sound system, and wasn't insured, in a storage fire and had to start from scratch Cry

He picked this up today, and also the Hackney gazzette did a piece on him

I Like the color but the lettering/logo of the boxes could be better.

Thanks. Sounds much better than it looks. It took Jah youth 3 seconds to make up his mind when the subs came on

Anyone got any idea what is going on with those kick bins, the 215B? The circle in the front makes the perspective really odd in those pic, looks like a curved grill behind it but no indication of how the box is loaded.

Been putting lock down to good use with my wife finishing the new Housewife's Choice Sound System who are the first all-female DIY Sound in Australia and as far as we can work out 1 of 4 or 5 all-female sound systems in the southern hemisphere. All up it took 2 years of designing, planning and sourcing parts followed by 13 months of cutting, routing, screwing and gluing to get to where it is at now. Still needs grills and stain/paint/varnish but it is all working and making sound so thought we would share with you guys.



The system is 5 way (4 way active, passive crossover for the Co-Ax comps):

Tops - BMS 4590-8 with C8-8 passive crossover on BMS 2236 horns
Mids - Sealed box with Eminence EC-25 (to be replaced by B&C 12NLD76 when we can get some)
Kick – Reflex box with Oberton 15B450 ported to 75hz, models as 101db 1w/1m
Sub – Rear Loaded Horn with Void V-1000

Pioneer DJM900NXS2
Allen & Heath MixWizard3 16:2
DCX2496
QSC GXD4 – Tops Amp
QSC GXD8 – Mids Amp
QSC GXD8 – Kicks Amp
QSC PL380 – Sub Amp
4 channels of compression into graphic EQ for mic inputs

Here are some videos showing the progression of the build

Finished set up – https://www.facebook.com/feebourne/videos/vb.595987717/10158878000177718

Testing the speaker distro built into the scoops before assembly – https://www.facebook.com/feebourne/videos/vb.595987717/10158364280577718

First boxes done - https://www.facebook.com/feebourne/videos/vb.595987717/10157515888247718

Anyway onto some build pics, not got heaps from the actual assembly as forgot to take pictures along the way but here goes. Main panel cuts were done using a table saw (thanks to Phil Dekked from DIY for letting us use the saw at his work), the rest of it was done with a cheap circular saw and a router. All boxes are fully rebated, glued and screwed using polyurethane glue.

Dry assembly of the mids



Soldering NL4 connectors on the mids



Handle Template



Assembled Mid Box



Kick Bin Assembly



Assembled Kick Bin



Wood cut for the Scoops



Test Assembly before cutting rebates



Marking Scoops back panels for wiring



Fitting & Securing T-Nuts for the Wheels



Side panels of scoops rebated & holes for connectors cut



Scoops coming together



Finishing Scoop # 3



4 Scoops ready for sanding



Scoops ready to load, all handles cut & all wiring complete



Comp driver horns got damaged in transit



Had to fix with a bit of Fiberglass resin



Boxes for the tops (Driver bracing missing from this pic)



Back of top boxes



Front of House Rack



Amp Rack – on left you have Left, Right & Mono in, on right you have Left & Right out on NL8



Back of Amp Rack



The Stack



The horn that got damaged is on the right, came up pretty good for a DIY repair



Side Angle view



Back of the stack to show the cable distribution. The subs have 2 x NL8 full range in/out and then Sub in/out on NL4 & Kick, Mid & Top outs on NL4. All NL4 is wired to Pins +/-1, the 2nd set of pins are not in use. Means you can run the entire rig on either NL8 or NL4/2 if need be if say you had to use a different amp rack but for 99% of work there will only be 2 cables from amp rack to stack. Subs & kick are in mono fed off the mono master fader on the MixWizard. Mids & Tops are in stereo and fed off the stereo master faders on the MixWizard



More of the cabling



Miss Fee at the controls ready for testing



Hope you enjoyed the journey, plenty more work to go to get it fully finished but at least it is making noise now.
