The elephant in the room...how much do these speakers weigh?

All other exercises in yay or nay are just mental masturbation.

Okay great. Thanks for the info.

Yes. I will have access to the drain. How is the install and fitup of the kerdi drain?

With access to the plumbing it's easy.

On this one I did not have access to the plumbing.

First photo are the drain body parts. It comes with the seals for the mixing valve and corners.

After I removed the old drain I dry fit the new body. The stub was to short.

Using a socket saver, I removed the pipe all the way into the trap hub.

Drain body dry fit to new pipe.

Body mortared in place.

Pan covered with Kerdi. Do not kneel on the foam pan without covering it with cardboard. Use the box, I double layer. I also cut the Kerdi 4" larger all directions, fold up the sides 2", saves on banding and build up.

When you get around to yours, post here, there are a lot of little tips that will help you through the install.

Another concern is that the speaker, if it holds a reasonable bass woofer, could end up using the whole wall as an extension. The vibration alone could cause damage as well. Not to mention making the sound quite distorted.

Just something to think about as well.

Except the wall cabinet was designed to be hung on the wall.   The speaker may or may not be designed for that.  And many aren't.

The wall cabinet will likely have the weight more evenly distributed than the speaker which will have most of the weight concentrated on or near the front face.

The limiting factor will be the speaker box construction.  Better make sure the backs are solid and that they are well connected to the sides.  Internal bracing is also a good idea.

Looks great! Really like the niches!

Does the bench have conventional framing under the kerdi board or did you just used a thicker board?

Within the next year I will be doing some reno on our house. I have never used the kerdi system. Looking forward to giving it a try. I especially like the presloped pans. Doing a dry pack mortar bed with the proper slope and liners was keeping me up at night!

The bench is 2" Kerdi board, made up of a front panel which is 1/4" shorter than the rear panel, capped with a 3rd 2" panel.

The piece of granite is 11-3/4" deep.

The stem wall I could have built out of Kerdi board also (2", 2" 1.5"). Not sure why I didn't.

Make sure the floor is level for the base. Use a 1/4" square notch trowel for the mortar bed to set it in.

Do you access to the drain?

Hi Bert,

I had the similar problem and @GarryMartin sent me some pictures. I went back to that post and found them. Hopefully cut and paste will work.  Here goes...


Couple of photos below that might help.

Mine did the same thing.  I needed to clean it and then it returned to normal operation.  Sigh, need to do it again now as it is occasionally sticking again.

Here is a thread on cleaning such.  http://festoolownersgroup.com/festool-tool-problems/how-to-clean-kapex-blade-guard/
