Even completed speakers need a place to stand. If there is no shelf close to the desired place of installation one has to build a stand upon which the tweeter can be on level with the ears of the listeners. The easiest way is by lengthening the side boards of the speaker, which we decided to illustrate with the Pontus AL.
A view into the 3 chamber casing of the Pontus AL betrays it's simple design if the lids and bases are properly cut to size. After milling the chassis mounts the middle section (front, lid, base and rear) of the casing were lacquered. As a try the holes for the speakers were serrated with a jigsaw.
For a perfect fit of the side boards there were some small blocks of wood glued to both of the side boards.
A supporting boards helbs to prevent the boards from bending downwards or lifting the top upwards while the second sides is glued in place and the glue is curing. After about 2h of curing the foot gets screwed to the boards and is visible in the last picture.Back to: Design - Of stone stuff Forward to: Design - reflex corners
