July Update - Coming Together


July 27, 2016

Hi everyone, hope everyone is enjoying their summer. 

We are almost there with the tooling modification and we have kicked off the concrete base production. Our engineer is at the tubing factory preparing the machine to produce copper spiral. Here are some new updates on the Pavilion production. 

We have been sourcing and testing several batteries for the Pavilion. Besides the costs, we are sorting out reliable vendors for the mass production. Optimizing PCB and testing Bluetooth compatibility is taking some time right now. We have found some connections loss with an old phone, so we will get this fixed before it goes out. FCC CE laboratory testing is prepared to start soon. It is expected to take 3~4 weeks, so it should be done by the time Pavilions ship out.

Concrete base production needed more attention than we expected and also more patience. With lots of trial and error, we have found the right molding materials and the inner structure. Now our speaker bases are coming out with accurate dimensions. The ideal hardening period to safe stiffness level is supposed to be 12 hours, but It is taking around 24 hours to produce one due to the rainy season. The humidity level is currently averaging 80% and it is slowing down of hardening speed.

Mass copper spiral production is in preparation. Making copper spiral required great precision and our team worked hard to get ideal dimension, angle and curvature of the spiral. We are making the spiral machine based on our drawing and we are expecting the machine to be ready by 2 weeks from now.

The first print of the user guide has arrived. We are reviewing the graphics and texts for any typos and errors. We will try our best to make the simplest and easiest user guide for you.

Thank you,
-Hult

wow! What a lot work and precision over and over. I just e mailed kickstarter because I hadn’t heard anything since January when I pre purchased 2 speakers. And now I know! I look forward to more updates it’s interesting the process and machinations you have to go through.
All the best

Before the new year 2017, we finally received all the parts for the final production. Everyone at Hult was very excited to ship Pavilion out soon, but when we had outgoing quality control for the first assembled Pavilion, the sound performance was not the same as the performance during the R&D stage.
