The new console arrived :) ...... :(

Post by helicopterpilotdoug » Fri Jul 16, 2010 5:38 am

Well, I was happier than a pig in shit yesterday when the console I'd been waiting for arrived. I'd ordered it on June 5th, and it was being custom made by furniture in the raw. It looks great, and I was very pleased until I started putting components into the side compartments. The shelves are all adjustable with metal pins. I wrestled the Sig into it's proper place in the middle just above the drawer. That's a heavy beast! When the TG IV gets here it will go above the Sig. Anyway, I started putting other components into the side compartments, and noticed the level was not correct. :( Apparently, when they made the console they screwed up, and have the two center panels installed upside down. ](*,) This throws off the alignment, and causes the shelves to not be level. Of course Furniture in the raw will fix it. They will pick it up on Saturday, and have it back the following Saturday. One of these days, I'm gonna have my setup done! Just not this day. :(

Appears to be a tight fit on the amp. Glad the Sunfire doesn't put out alot of heat!
In reality, it only matters what it sounds like to YOU!!!

Thanks :) No, these are 2A's. I have a set of 2B's coming soon, and will be giving them the full treatment with 198-1 tweeters, crossover upgrade by Ben over at CP, dynamat, mortite, and spikes, plus new Vampire wire 9X/cb binders. I put 194 tweets in the 2A's, and did the dynamat tweak, and they sound a lot better than they did with the 2000's.

Right you are! When the TG IV gets here it will be above the Sig. This cabinet is open in the back, so there should be plenty of airflow.

Do you have the smoked glass bases for the Sunfire units? That stops a LOT of heat from transferring from one to the other....

It will look nice when fixed but it sucks that it showed up that way.

I do have the one that came with the Sig. Don't know if there is one for the TG IV or not. Still waiting to get it.

That is a beautiful cabinet! I also wonder about the heat? My TGC-5 gets warm to the touch and I though if your referring to say heat sinks and cooling, that the whole cover is where heat is dissipated? I could be wrong, I also have my processor sitting on top of my amp on 1" risers, but maybe the warm to touch is coming from the processor. :-k

If not, place the glass between the amp & processor.

Doug, I have some spare AVRisers, but they are too tall for your application, I believe (1.5-2")...

I agree - that is a great cabinet. So many times guys just have a sterile rack.

That is just great !!!
