Finally working on them
« on: June 07, 2018, 02:25:36 pm »

I finally made some chips on my speaker anglers.
I'll have some test samples soon and I could use a couple of guinea pigs.
If anyone is interested, PM me.

Looks like a shiny Escher pattern to me  :o .  Can you explain how they work?

Yes - I am intrigued too Dave.

Hi Dave.

Im interested. How do they connect to the speaker? It looks like you sandwich two of them together to select the angke you want. Is that right?

They look sort of like low-angle machinist's step blocks, or film dolly wedges, but maybe with a curved profile.

My take as well.  Used in pairs, they lock together and with speaker and stand mount at whatever angle in their range suits your need at the time.

Best regards,

John

The photo is of the bottom side of the top half of the adjustment mechanism.
They will go from 4 degrees to 12 degrees in 2 degree increments.
I'm working on the bottom now.
Then the post and socket.
For now the adjusting will happen before the installation, but later I will have a doodad that will allow you to adjust in place.
Rotation center should be good for 12" and 15" two-ways.
Not as fancy as the BT, but lower profile and less expensive.
Here's an earlier solid model.

Ah!  Essentially a LaPrade-style bicycle saddle adjustment (on a quality seatpost), but for a stand-mounted speaker.

Nothing earth shattering, hopefully just a nice application.
