It's only to stop debris getting down there I believe, a bit of solid wire fashioned into a hook would probably get it out.

Need to know a way of removing the grill that covers the cooling vent to (pole piece) in speakers, without cutting a hole in it, that is the only thing holding me back.

cheers

Hi, I think we have v2 drivers as we bought them after 2005. The plans should have been v2. i like to run the punishers at 2 cabinets on a bridged 1600 or 2600 amplifier 4ohms. Either Matrix Quantum 1600 or Peavey 2600 4ohms. The Peavey only produces 2600 at 2ohms from what i remember. 

Matrix produces 1600 at 4ohms bridged NOT 2ohms.

The cabinets were run from a void infinate 8 at 2ohms. NOT my idea and it wasnt me how wired it.

The cabs were running for over 24 hours and some now do not work and we have replaced some of the cables inside. I am not too worried about the old cabs as I am looking to build 2 or 4 new cabs with aluminium plates. Below is a picture of our stack. Look out for the GREEN punishers.





Ahhh disruption sounds ;)

I take it mikey was setting this up for you? he does like those infinite 8s lol

Your cabs are the v2 drivers and v2 design for sure

We run our puns from matrix xt5000mf amps, 1 double pun per side. the 5000mf will do 2500w at 4ohm per channel and we have had the amps and cabs rocking for days at organic sounds and other events without any problems.

Well, you would block or seriously reduce the v/c ventilation and cooling and also solid metal would have a better co-efficient.

Somebody came out with water cooled lights, which I thought a crazy idea destined for someones death, but it still made production.  High voltage and water Dead.

i like the water cooling idea!... couple of barbs out the back to simple low pressure pump to a bucket of water (with ice for really hot days). if that doesnt work then some one has broke physics!

you could hammer them hard knowing the hot water coming out the back will make a nice cuppa

Please see this diagram Timebomb. 

With the panel connected to the magnet, that should work, Also the panel is not on the side of the box in the diagram.



Im tempted to give it a try.


It would work better than ali access panels, how you connect it to the back plate/pole peice would be tricky,  i think Void use thick copper cables which will conduct much better than air.  Your still going to be limited but the surface area of the heat sink and the thermal transfer of the copper though, id have to check on the numbers but it could make a meaning full reduction in thermal compression.
