I’m back home now, time to make some more videos & content. Please like and subscribe..
As we all know i have been doing videos one every week, possibly going to start doing more. Only reason I am doing this,, BECAUSE i love it 😛 I actually love video editing and have been told that the videos are getting better and better 😛 so im continuing. Will i make money ? who knows, if i do then it will go into projects and products to review on my channel. My ultimate goal would be to buy a few new tools for my work bench and buy some audio kits off ebay / amazon and review and build them and video the process for my subscribers.
In the works, new amplifiers are going to be built. I am still running my aleph mini’s that put out 30 watts rms.
My new tower speakers are going to be a little but more power hungry, 30watts isn’t going to be enough. So I ordered a new set of PCB’s for the Aleph 2’s designed by Nelson Pass.. They are a older design but I really love my aleph amplifiers.
I already have the transformers Plitron 30-0-30 @ 650va Toroidial’s & the heatsinks 🙂
Picture of the PCB.
Very close to being done guys ! Just need to paint the baffles Black & the bases Black. Then the actual boxes bright cloud white. Here is a shot of them just sitting together.
Thanks again to Ryan, for all the hard work and CNC time to do these baffles. Next up to do a light sand and then full paint job. Then to mount to the enclosures.
Finally got my new “FREE” UPS.. Friend of mine donated a lightly used PERFECT condition HP 3000KV ups. Batteries are in perfect health and unit is perfect. I lopped off the 110V 30A twist lock plug and intalled a 110V 15amp plug and its all working perfectly.
YES you can change plugs, i’m only puling 505watts from this setup, not even close to what the ups can pull, if you arn’t pulling alot of current the you don’t need to worry about the 30amp plug, if you were pulling alot of power then you would need the 30amp twist lock and dedicated power run for the UPS.
Well, the Aleph mini’s got a new chassis. I ditched the cube chassis and went with a flat chassis. This is much better, took me several hours to drill & tap the new “L” brackets and heatsinks. You have to do this slowly or you break a drill bit or tap. No need to rush.. LOL !!
Well, I was having a few issues with the R310, so I brought it back to the warehouse I bought it from. Instead of changing all the fans I asked how much to move to a R510, only few $$ more so I did it..
Brought the R510 home, threw in my Freenas USB stick & the drives, setup the Idrac and poof it was all up and running. Oh and i moved over the 10Gig network card too 🙂 everything came back on line and all is working perfectly. Now if i want to add more drives I have 4 more slots available. the goal is to add 4 more 2tb drives.
Now a picture of the rack as it sits. Soon I’ll have a 3va UPS to add and maybe even another R610.
