Default Subwoofer Assembly

Since it was asked I'm adding pictures of the build process. At the moment I don't have any pics that show the actual assembly of the spiders to the coil so I add them later on.

The glues I use are from Parson Adhesives. They sell retail so if you need any ask for BJ. Minimum order is $100. I use three different CA glues. The 3410 is a thin rubberized glue that I use to assemble the spiders and do most initial bonding. The 3212 is a viscous rubberized glue that is used for just about every glue joint and for assembling the cap and ahearing the spiders to the frame. The 3426 is a thick rubberized gel and is used to secure the leads to the cone body, bolts on the motor, and terminals.

Below is the accelerator I use. It's also sold in bulk plastic containers.

This is a two part adhesive specially for foam. It's wont destroy foam like ca glue will, and is damn strong.

The leads are ran though the cone body, soldered with a lead free electronics solder and liquid flux then secured with glue

The centering ring is then glued to the body and former

By using the center ring it not only allows the cap to be center but allows for a nice bead around the cap

It's a learning curve, I'm still tweaking thing here and there from input I receive from my team members. The first run of Ethos had a few minor assembly issues that needed sorted out. Although it's been going on 15 years I did take 10 years of gifted visual arts classes in school so I have a knack for pretty much anything that involves building with my hands (I have been told I've got pretty good glassing skills and can build a pretty damn good box). I came from brick and motor directly from high school. Being an install manager at a large volume dealer in New Orleans I was blessed to have the opportunity to learn a good bit from Mark Fukuda and Brian Smhitt.

But the actual assembly is cake compared to the engineering of the driver. It took me nearly two years to find competent engineering consultants and parts suppliers and another two years of samples, testing, and adjustments before I was satisfied with the outcome of the Ethos.

Work looks marvelous! Can't wait to see the fully built v2's next to the v1's. Although I really love the design of the v1's, the new motors look promising. Tuned in
