Assembly

The boards are cut out as given in the parts list and prepared as in the drawings, then stuck together as butt joints. It is easiest to start with a side-wall to which the rear panel, floor, top and all the internal separators are then glued. At this stage, it makes sense to drill small holes for the cables from the crossovers to the loudspeaker drivers. Pass the required length of cable through these holes and then seal them off again using hot-melt glue, making sure they are airtight. Then attach the second side wall and finally the front baffle.

The crossover for the bass section is screwed to the floor in the lower part of the cabinet, while the crossover for the mid- and high-ranges is screwed to the partition in the upper woofer compartment. The crossovers can be inserted later though the openings for the TIW 200 XS - 8 Ohm in the front baffle and attached in the required position.

Now the individual compartments are damped and the drivers prepared for their first trial fit. The KE 25 SC - 8 Ohm tweeter is first screwed to the Waveguide, the screws for the purpose are included in the Waveguide packaging. To prevent blur we recommend sealing the mating surface with sealing tape or removable glue. The unit thus created, KE 25 SC - 8 Ohm + WG 220x150, can now also be fitted to the baffle.

Inner damping

Four mats of damping material are uniformly distributed in each woofer chamber. Two mats are pushed into the mid-range loudspeaker chamber, one of them must be tightly rolled and positioned in the middle between the mid-range loudspeaker and tweeter. The second can be halved and the two halves arranged loosely around the mid-range driver and the tweeter.
