It's probably more a sign of being a contrarian than anything, but just when the Yamaha NS-10 was hitting its peak of popularity I was busy messing around with Dynaudio raw drivers.
For better or worse, that was my "monitor" setup for the next decade or so and like anything I eventually got used to the sound and could make fairly good judgements by them. Used systems often come up for sale, though the condition of the drivers is often unknown and the shipping costs are prohibitive.
The crossovers are probably the hardest part to find and I was ready to build my own using the schematic given in the widely available instruction manual. I spent a long time looking for an old particle board table or other piece of furniture with that '80s "Japanned" finish but eventually gave up on the idea of duplicating the look of the original. I was told by the fellow who sold me the crossovers that the original boxes had a brace with a circular cut-out that went between the woofer and the tweeter holes. After cutting the hole for the tweeter I dropped the tweeter in, lined it up so it was square to the oversized baffle edge and drew the outline with a pencil.
Though both the table saw and router are Ryobi brand none of the holes in the table saw router attachment feature would fit. However, it was worth the effort as it allowed better control over cutting the rectagular crossover cut-outs from the rear panel of the box.
Once all the screw placements had been determined and pilot holes drilled, I sanded the boxes smooth and coated them with a few layers of water based undercoat, sanding between coats. Using a cheap Malaysian HVLP spray gun, I applied the first coats of British Paints Ritzy Red interior low sheen house paint.
To keep the finish protected, I inserted three of the eight speaker mounting screws to create a tripod on the front baffle as the spraying progressed. Credit to the guy who started this thread for inspiring the color choice and for showing why buying used systems from Ebay probably isn't the best idea.
November 18, 2011 Brittany Bailey 31 Comments Welcome back to another Tool Tutorial Friday. If you are just getting used to power tools, I would use a jigsaw or miter saw before tackling this big bad boy!A That being said, I believe in all of you and know you can use a table saw, so let’s get to it! Cross cut a€“ a type of cut that is perpendicular to the grain or along the width of your board. I highly recommend wearing ear protection, safety googles and a dust mask when using a table saw. Two common dangers of using a table saw are kickback (the board being thrown back toward the user) and hand injuries from forcing material through or feeding the wood with the hand too close to the saw.
The rip fence is used to setting the width of a cut and keeping the board straight when making a rip cut. The viewer assumes all responsibility and liability associated with the hazards of woodworking. Please recognize that I have tried to put together a basic table saw usage tutorial to get you started.
And now the moment y’all have been waiting for: The winner of last weeks Tomboy Tools Magnetic hammer is Seansmom!
Thanks for the inspiration – you have awesome tutorials and ideas and I appreciate you sharing them with newbies such as myself.
He uses a push piece as well, but he just uses whatever piece of scrap wood he has laying around that’s handy.


I grew up watching my Dad use a table saw and while I know how to use one, I never have solo. Brittany, thank you so much for giving us such a practical and thorough demonstration for using something that can be very intimidating.

Once Dynaudio Acoustics entered the "pro" market I was on to the next thing ;) But after reading the SOS article on the NS-10 I thought I should find out what I was missing a couple of decades ago. Even though the NS-10 was discontinued a decade ago, parts are available regularly on Ebay. However, I noticed that detailed information on the inductors wasn't given, nor were any measurements available on the internet.
Keep in mind that the diameters listed are for the flanges; internal diameter measurements would be impossible without unwinding the coil. I decided to go with medium density fiberboard rather than particle board mainly for ease of finishing; MDF isn't nearly as thirsty as unfinished particle board and a smooth finish is easier to achieve. I believe this allows the voice coils to come into closer alignment with respect to the listener. I drilled the appropriate positions and used a counter-sink bit to allow the screws to sit flush.
I advise, as with the baffle, that you cut the hole before installing the rear panel to the box. The can advised 100ml of water per liter to thin, but this was far too little to ensure it would spray from my home handyman tool, so I just kept adding water until it reached the correct consistency to spray properly.
Once the final coat had dried, I mounted the crossover, stuffed the box with some glass fiber and soldered the drivers to the correct wires shown earlier. I have a secret to tell you, this is one of the two power tools I own that I fear the most (the other is my router.) However, everytime I use my table saw I get a little more comfortable. This is usually done with a table saw, but can be done with a circular saw and a straight edge.
Cross cuts are usually made with a miter saw or circular saw, but can also be made with a hand saw.
Set up supports or have someone help you to support large pieces of wood after they exit the saw.

I just bought a table saw last week because I can’t make a strait cut with a hand saw. I’ve personally known two or three men to cut some digits off with miter saws, and that’s enough warning for me to play it safe! I just learned how to use a router and now I’m definitely up for safely trying a table saw. When my son was little (he’s 27 now), we were sitting in the dining room and suddenly heard the table saw go on and a scream from my son.
Rather than pay for shipping a particle board box with questionable drivers, I decided to buy new parts and build the simple sealed box myself. Far from perfect, but cleaning it up with a straight X-Acto style blade made it look a little bit more acceptable. That way, if you have a problem you can cut a new piece without having to remove it from the box first.
While my picture shows the closest spaced pair of holes furthest from the right hand edge, the closest ones should be nearest to the right hand edge. I can appreciate the midrange detail and how it makes my mixes sound as crap as they actually are. Well, wouldn’t you know that our living room ended up being the perfect size for all full width boards. I can roll it out into the driveway (to keep the sawdust outside.) And, because the stand is built-in, I can fold it up on its side, roll it back into the garage and store it away when not in use.
Especially if you need to lay wood flooring, install beadboard wainscoting and many other projects that require you to rip a board. I clicked over to her profile link and am determined to stay in their Carolan guest house if I’m ever in the Northwest Iowa area. So, once again leave me a comment below and let me know if you are willing to try a table saw after watching my video tutorial. But each time I read your blog and see comments I get a littler more anxious to get back to it. I’ve been scared to give a table saw a whirl, but I think I just might be able to handle it.
I have a few wood projects lined up and my husband has been giving me lessons with the power tools we have.
For even more protection from hand injuries, there is a table saw that is manufactured under the name Stop Saw, that retracts in a split second if it detects flesh against the blade.
It definitely takes a bite from a power tool (or electricity) to remind us to be more careful.
