There was apparently a postal worker strike in Germany that slowed things down a bit. I just received my order today. Ordered 8/3. They look great. Though I bought them with the intention of mounting HAT L1ís and canít yet figure how to mount them into the PODs. I can only figure having to drill/tap set screws through the side to hold the tweeter in place.

Was thinking about spending 1k on pillars, but these look great! Though as some have stated im worried about the sound. Are they too small? Do they make any unwanted sounds? Then again mids in the pillars may have less air room? And lastly, i have no fab experience, i have no idea how to mount these without them maybe falling off or rattling

I received my pods listed for Legatia L1 on Ebay. No way of mounting that tweeter into these pods though. I emailed him and the response was that, it was necessary to Glue it in. Hmmm. So Iím going to take my new H.A.T. Legatia L1 Pro R2ís and Glue them into these beautiful black anodized aluminum pods. ?? I guess I will attempt drill/tapping these out for set screws.

I love my PODS. Drilled and tapped for my 3" drivers. I can't complain one bit.

Do you have pics of these installed? What were you able to set the crossover at for midbass/midrange conversion? I guess what I want to know is were there any negatives in the freq. response due to te enclosure being too small for the driver.

I'm not running the drivers anywhere near FS, so enclosure size is not that big of factor. However, I would say the pods have tad more volume then 3" PVC end caps. I have mine crossed at 309hz @ LR 24db. I'm not much of a picture taker, but will try to get a couple shots.

309 Hz/24 db. that's not bad at all actually. Lower than I'm running my AP drivers currently. Will be addressing that in the coming days as I now have all my amps working properly again. Did you notice any rise in the response from of the drivers just north of that cross point? If you could grab us a pic I think many would be appreciative not the least of which would be me.

No big rise that I recall. Typical random peaks that were fixed by EQ

Maybe not ideal, but if you didn't want to risk drilling and tapping, you could try butyl tape...

I am trying to decide if I want to try these or try my hand at modding my pillars. These would definitely be cheaper and easier to install but I think the modded pillars look better. Decisions, decisions.

I have used butyl to hold tweeters in place before, and it gets pretty warm here. Granted, I probably wouldn't use it on anything heavier than a tweeter...

Default Re: Pillar Pods

I ordered a pair of his pillar pods for the FR89's, just like lizardking. I didn't go through eBay, just dealt with him directly via email. Little bit of a language barrier but he delivered the goods at a good price. Took a litte less than 1 month but he always kept in contact. My enclosures look just like the ones lizardking posted. Very high quality with not a nick or scratch on the black aluminum. I'm very pleased.

No resonances and they seem to play fine down to 400Hz with no problem. There's enough airspace for the mid to play down to 400Hz. It may be a while till i get them installed but anyone worried about quality or airspace (lack of) shouldn't have a problem unless your trying to play the mid lower than 300Hz or so. I thought I noticed the mid struggling some at 300Hz but I need to test more. I just got them today and wanted to make sure they would work for my application (400Hz - 6kHz). They do.

I'm happy enough that I may holler at him for a tweeter set.

I mounted mine using the threaded hollow rod only and a nice big washer on the backside. Mine don't bounce around at all. Very solid.

Default Re: Pillar Pods

The pods are setup with the hardware to be mounted to the a-pillars and then tightened using the nuts to sandwich the pillar. The threaded post that goes into the pod and pillar is hollow, allowing the speaker wire to be unseen and routed out and down to your amp.

It looks like he is custom machining out of aluminum stock for every order. The pods aren't painted black, they are anodized black so fading shouldn't be a big issue. You can see inside the pod where it looks like the CNC was hollowing out the inside of the pod.

My biggest concern is heat. Man, you know these little black pods are going to get hot as hell sitting in the sun soaking up the UV. Better use the sunshade....

Default Re: Pillar Pods

Received mine about a week and a half ago. After getting some info from HAT, I realize that my original plan of using the L3SE's with no tweeter support ain't gonna happen. So now I'm debating to run 3-way, or simply glass some pods for the a-pillars to get them the airspace they need. These pods are very nice looking. Kinda bought them on a whim. Can't really do anything til my updated amplification comes in, but I will hook them up to see just what kind of FR the pods will allow.
