  1. Good driver selection, it should sound very nice when finished. Aim to keep the Raal at ear height if you haven't already considered it has great horizontal off-axis but its a ribbon so vertical needs to be considered.
  2. Would the 100 Ohms like Gat474 has used be ok for ME850 or not ideal? should have the amp been adjusted for the 100 Ohm pre-amp? I used to own an ME850 but had to remove the resistors to match my pre-amp, it was a decent pre-amp but always wondered if the setup was ideal and it would be better with ME pre-amp. Wouldn't mind getting another one as l miss it.
  3. Looking good, nice drivers the SB acoustics, interested to know what change your planning on doing to the drivers to improve them? extra magnet? more weight?
  4. May as well show the whole movie with all these trailers.
  5. I've been through many different tweeters in diy builds but stopped at a set of RAAL's, l haven't heard the bigger model but assume it would be very nice.
  6. This DIY build is impressive, defiantly next level. Just looking at your side profile and wondering how you decided on position of each driver. I understand that you are planning to have adjustment to physically time align but shouldn't starting position have the drivers acoustic centres more on the same plane?
  7. Probably because your measuring more off axis, look at some manufacturer's tweeter measurements of 0 degrees, 15 degrees, 30 degrees.
  8. If your not a terrorist you've go nothing to fear. l've always figured if someone wrote the code then someone can hack it. As technology advances this spying and control on everybody will be inevitable.
  9. I would say engineers as in the trailer - there is nothing, no birds, no animals, no noise, nothing.
  10. Item: Esoteric C-03x pre amplifier with HT bypass Location: Melbourne, Doncaster East, Vic. Price: $5700 can post if required. Item condition: Excellent no marks/scratches. Reason for selling: Changed setup, don't require a pre-amp. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal. Extra Info: Purchased new, owned for around 3 years. Have changed my setup to computer based with multi-DAC for active 3 way speaker system so can't use a pre-amplifier unfortunately. I would like to keep it for the future in case but its too much coin sitting in the cupboard unused.

  11. Can use a 12v coil, 240Volt relay and use 12v trigger from pre amp to turn on/off. It is same as others have suggested except no need for 12v dc power supply for fans.
  12. Why don't you just get a 240 volt fan wire it to a power lead and turn it on/off when required. No need for power supplies etc.
  13. Hi Andy, They go down to 20Hz. DIY speakers sealed drivers in TMWW setup. Yes it is a general curve, i have run my speakers active and passive. Essentially my preferred target/house curve is mimicking the passive version of the speaker with room gain as this is what l prefer. I do have multiple target cures that l can switch between though.
  14. I have acourate convolver but haven't given acourate flow much of a try yet. What setting did you end up at? Just wondering how different to the recommend standard settings (-2/4).
  15. I would suggest you try both and see what you prefer. Create a flat frequency response at the listening position and then compare to a house curve at the listening position. With my active setup l prefer a house curve with bass increased about +6db from 100Hz and below and the top end sloping down from 1khZ to 20Khz -3db.
