A boring (but awesome) Fusion Tempest Build

Discussion in 'DIY Speakers and Subwoofers' started by Crashless, Apr 16, 2016.

  1. I just received my fusion 12 tempest kit, and I'm VERY excited. The flat packs are glueing together perfectly and I've placed the components on the crossover board.

    Best I can tell, there is no polarity on any of the components. Is that right? Could someone please look at my assembly before I solder them in?

    Also, do people hot glue the components in place? Seems like they might rattle, but it's hard to tell.

    Thanks so much!

  2. Here is my dampening. It's an egg crate mattress pad, about 2.5 inches thick. I've been going back and forth on staples vs super 77. Any plus/minuses there?

  3. I've never been good at taking my time with projects like this. I powered through and just got them hooked up. The family is sleeping so I can't really test them out, but so far, so good. No smoke, always good.

    The first thing I noticed was how easily the speakers image stereo. I turned on some music, and had to double check I was in stereo mode because I could swear my center channel was on. But nope. Just awesome.

    Big test tomorrow. In the meantime the rest of the build pics. I hot glued the components in place, which seemed to work well. I also carefully tested the crossover by turning the volume to zero, then very slowly bringing them up. Also used staples for the foam. Last time I used spray glue it was a mess.
