Sound System Rebuild

A couple of weeks ago the sound system got a makeover. Here it is in the original tatty green with the remains of all manner of posters and stickers all over it.

The old sticky-backed-plastic came off without too much difficulty, and much of the wiring was stripped out and tidied up.

The new covering of gloss sticky backed plastic went on without too much difficulty, though the finish isn't brilliantly smooth.

However, the general effect, with the new led reflector lights front, side and back is pretty good. I also managed to improve the bass end of the sound system by adjusting the crossover, resulting in a nice firm bottom end.

The system got it's first outing at last month's critical mass in Manchester.
