Assembly

Inside the large subwoofer cabinet there is a separate chamber that houses the low- to midrange unit. The tweeter and mid-range driver are also mounted in this cabinet.

To achieve the broad bevel on the upper third of the front panel, the sides of the low- to mid-range cabinet are doubled-up. Three 8 mm holes will have to be drilled in the rear wall of the low- to mid-range chamber for the cables. These must be well sealed off after the cables have been positioned.

The rectangular opening in the rear wall is for the terminals. The frequency crossover unit is mounted on the wall behind the bass cut-out.

Inner damping

Two mats of damping material are pushed into the low- to mid-range cabinet.The remaining 10 mats are evenly distributed around the woofer chamber.
