  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

I already have an idea so that party don't necessarily have to be smaller just because it's a smaller coffin. icon_biggrin.gif

Hello icon_smile.gif

Just thought I'd invite you to see some shots from the build taken with my Rolleiflex.
The shots are ofcourse from the spring, around april.

Yeah, I wondered that myself until I quoted it and found the link buried there. No Idea why it doesn't autoparse it or hides it but given the software quality on this forum and website, I can't say I'm surprised.

Hey mennesker som er intersserede i lydsystemer!!

Vi så lige denne tråd og tænkte at i ville være interesseret i at være en del af vores initiativ! initiativet hedder United Sound Systems (U.S.S.) og går ud på at skabe et community med dels lydsystemer og dels gadefester i fokus.
Lydsystems delen vil være være muligt at snakke med de andre I U.S.S og debattere lydsystem, så vi alle bliver bedre til at bygge et nice system. Denne del er I høj grad bygget op omkring forum strukturen, så der er rig mulighed for at nørde havde end der er det mindste relateret til lydsystemer og gadefest.
Gadefest delen (som selvfølgelig også kan blive debatteret på forummet) vil primært have facebook som platform hvor det vil være muligt at poste en gadefest til alle de andre, som 'liker' siden, dvs. både andre lydsystemer og folk, som gerne vil til gadefest. Kort sagt kan man sige at lydsystems delen, er et lidt mere internt forum, hvor gadefest er meget eksternt.
En ting dette community gerne skal gøre, er at man får brugt sit lydsystem mere end den "ene gang på Roskilde", det er nemlig vores overbevisning at folk i byen er klar til mere fest på gaden. Vi håber at dig/dit lydsystems-crew/dine venner på gaden vil være med til at gøre det community større.
Det førnævnte forum er endnu ikke helt kommet op og stå, så det vi gerne vil have dig til at gøre til at starte med, er at lave en facebook-side til dit lydsystem, så vi kan gå ind og 'like' det, og vice versa. Håber det har vagt interesse . I er altid velkommen til at kontakte os, og selvfølgelig at gå ind og se hvordan vores facebook-side og vores preliminære webside indtil videre er designet.

Allright!

I thought it was time to show you guys the coffin we'll bring this year.
Now first off, thanks to everyone for the awesome parties we have had over the years.
But it was time to turn the Coffin Blaster from a night club, and into a "bon fire" icon_smile.gif
We wanted to bring it back to the basics. A cool boombox that we could have in the camp, and enjoy dark nights under the pavilion between the tents.
So that's what we did.
But believe me wan I say, it still has the boom to throw a big party!
If we feel like it! icon_smile.gif
Now we have taken content from the tower from our old coffin, and with Saturnus' help, modified it to give a little more bass, so it works as a solo unit.
As usual, I used some spare time since last festival to design it in 3D, and now it's come from that, to completion in the real world.

First, here are a few of our 3D drawings to give you an idea:
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/1.jpg

http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/2.jpg

http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/3.jpg


It took some time before I started to photograph my progress, so here is the intire coffin, with separated chambers for batteries, filters and amp in the bottom, and left/right channel speakers in the top. These carry the exact same volume as our old tower. And before sealing the lid, I siliconed every angle of the inside, to make it air tight!
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/4.jpg


I siliconed all along the edge, and then put on the actual lid.
What you see here is the chamber for the batteries, amp and filters.
The walls you see support a drawer that can be removed.
The little gray cylindrically shaped piece of metal coming out of the wall is the actuator we used to lift the lid last year.
This year it will push the lid out sideways, only revealing the drawer.
The walls will leave any spilling over the edges falling on the outside of the electrical equipment. When the drawer is removed, the electronics will be revealed for any field maintenance.
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/5.jpg


Then it was time for the light in the lid!
It was almost a complete replica of last years gig.
Only this year, we only used a series of 10 diodes, instead of the lightstrips we used last year. This was to conserve power.
We cut a 10mm deep line along the inside of the frame, and installed the LEDs within this groove. Then put silicone on top.
We use a matt/clear silicone. When it hardens, it provides as a natural light conductor, emitting light far beyond the actual diode, spreading the light sideways.
Looks cool in the dark!
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/6.jpg

http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/7.jpg


Here is another peek into the ''engine bay''.
The batteries are four 18Ah 12v Lithium-ion. So 72Ah in total.
They were perfect for this build! The in whole battery pack weighs in at only 4 kilos!
The sure beats a 25kilo car battery with 60Ah icon_smile.gif
And they come with a 230 volt charger about the size of a cellphone charger, so we can leave the whole pack to charge in the luggage storage if we want.
Except we got that covered with a 55w solar panel icon_smile.gif
The gray boxes in the second photo are passive filters for the speakers by Saturnus' design.
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/8.jpg

http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/9.jpg


So I painted the light-frame and the coffin separately to get the best paint job.
Then I screwed the lid in place, puttied over the screws, sanded it down, and gave it a final finish with paint.
Looks pretty sharp!
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/10.jpg

http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/11.jpg


We decided to use this old scrolling LED sign from the Coffin Blaster 3.0 in this build as well.
But we decided to make it a little nicer. So we picked it apart, then cut out the footprint of the sign, about 5 mm deep in the 15mm plywood, and inserted it.
Then siliconed it into place.
I had some red plexiglass, and some nice chromed screws laying around the warehouse.
So we took a big piece to cover it all, and I thought it looked super clean!
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/12.jpg


Here is a little look at what the coffin looks like in the dark! icon_smile.gif
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/13.jpg


And here is me and our dog, Thorvald posing a little!
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/14.jpg


Thorvald aproves BTW!
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/15.jpg


And then it's finally time to install the speakers!
We run on two 8" midranges, and two horns with magnets.
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/16.jpg


And now for the first field test!
BTW here you can see how the lid moves with the actuator icon_smile.gif
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/17.jpg


And here it is, all finished!
The only thing different is that I in this photo still haven't put the final finishing coat of paint on the light-frame. Just sanded down the putty.
And PA-style grills that will be painted red and cover the midranges. These are still in their way in the mail. Will give an extra punch to the look I believe icon_smile.gif
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/18.jpg


And this year, as the every year, we have the Baby Coffin!
This is my girl working on it! It's her coffin, so I leave the build to her icon_smile.gif
Saturnus has tweaked this one a little for us as well. 2 tweeters and two 4" midranges running of a lepai 2020.
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/19.jpg


While Christine works, we top up the battery, Roskilde-style!
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/20.jpg


And here it is! It's got straps from a backpack, so you can run around playing music while you buy beer or take a piss.
It, of course, has a baby inside. It's umbilical cord, is the minijack-cable icon_smile.gif
New feature this year, are two cigarette inputs!
One to charge from solar panel, and the other to charge iphones or ipods icon_smile.gif
We figured it was better to have the charger on the Baby Coffin, leaving all the power in the Mini Coffin for the camp's music!
We have also given the baby in the coffin some tattoos this year icon_smile.gif
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/21.jpg


The world needs more girls with powertools!
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/22.jpg


And since the Mini Coffin is now completely finished, I installed the Coca Cola bottle opener!
This is the ONLY part that has followed every single Coffin Blaster since the first one we build!
From 2007 until 2012!
Coffin Blaster 1.0 - 1,5 - 2.0 - 2,5 - 3,0 and now, the Mini Coffin (4,0).
http://kvanneid.com/coffincamp/forum/minicoffin/23.jpg





So there you have it!
The complete build of the newest Coffin Blaster!
As always, big thanks to Saturnus for his help in making it sound as good as it does!
Feel free to ask questions, if you have any!

See you at Roskilde!
Feel free to drop by and say ''hello''!
We'll be in C47, as we are every year! <3

Gonna be good! C is a wonderfull place!
With the weather this year, I recommend the area around where we camp. Close to the C tower.
It's a natural high ground, so less mud, and guarateed against flooded tents! icon_wink.gif

I think that's where we are heading at - even though we booked at west 1, which seems a bit south icon_rolleyes.gif

Cool! were you in the west que last year?
Because last year 1 and two pretty much was side by side.
As in the "front line" of the que was the same, just devived down the middle out to the road.
So I woudn't worry to much icon_smile.gif
If you're early, and in the upper north corner, that would be the left flank of the que, you're in the same place as the guys in West 2 who are on the right flank icon_smile.gif
