  1. Pack and Send could be your (and buyers) friend
  2. Anthony, have you thought about Commonwealth idler in good operating comdition? Not mine, but a guy I know here in WA. Alan
  3. Bloody hell, you are much too young for heart issues. I really hope you are on the mend. That Automobile Excellence in Dianella (huge plug here for a great German auto workshop in Perth!!) must be going as good or better than it ever did? Yes I have been to your workshop and house to hear both systems at the time and you did take my Wolcott PM220's. Seems like you are really enjoying the horns. There is a lot to like with horns if you enjoy music-thats my take anyway cheers Alan from Bunbury
  4. Hey Volker, thats you??? The BMW, Merc, Porsche guy with workshop? I just sort of twigged. You had those Wolcott monos and the Ambience in your workshop. I remeber now. How are you? I gather very well and filling the huge space with those horns of yours. Good stuff. We must somehow catch up again when the time is good cheers Alan
  5. yes they are. Cabinets copied from an original Good to hear you had success with the D-23 in your application. We must catch up soem time down the track. I am in Bunbury
  6. I'm "listening" in the background guys-interested in the experiences of others A9X your an east coast "westie" right? Not over here in WA?
  7. Thanks A9X and Andy. Thanks for taking the time to respond with the input you have. Just to clarify I have a D-23 but dont plan on building any active analogue variety at all. It is only the commercially available finished varieties I ask the questions of. I pretty much havent used the D-23 yet myself. D-23 has 6, 12 and 18db BW slopes I also dont plan on using such a crossover as an end point, rather a starting point tool for maybe several multiway horn based set ups with various driver and horn combinations I am gravitating towards having collected the numerous bit along the way Andy-looks like you has some success and satisfaction with Rod Elliott's P09 analogue active XOs? Cant be that bad as part of a crossover journey? Tuyen - thanks for your bit too. I had a feeling you had used D-23 at some point
  8. A general question I guess for those who have used analogue active crossovers in speaker projects along the way. There are several makes and models of course and both pro audio or home audio based types. Also older and new current designs. Any comments on 4 way Pioneer D-23 experiences are particularly of interest So, with above as background, what experiences have any users had in regard to achieving satisfying results in multi way speaker systems? Was flexibility limitations of the unit enough? Was there a need to move on to alternative crossover options quickly or did you live with the analogue unit for a decent period of time? All relevant comments would be of assistance
  9. Hell yeh, thats no worries. I can make them too! Even easier and cheaper than DD55000 Everest. Seriously
  10. Item: pair of JBL Everest horns with detachable 2" throat Location: Bunbury WA Price: $1200 ono or talk about price to me if need be. maybe we can agree on a price to suit you?? Item Condition: brand new, just made Reason for selling: making more Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have made these fibreglass horns casting from an original and have been made with a properly transitioned throat to suit a 2" (or less?) driver. Flanges are bolted together with 1mm gasket in between. Bolts only loosely fitted for pics, thats why some are angled in and sticking out. Bolts and gasket supplied. More pics and info to come tomorrow. As I have the moulds and designs for all bits, they can be customized to suit almost any need. The 2 piece deisgn was intended for a tweaker who may wish to run compression drivers with different diameters, say 1.5" or 2" or 1" as the orignal speaker/horn/driver was developed or absolutely any other diameter. "short horns" with other and any diameter can be made to suit. This allows quick driver changes, each with proper tranistions into the rectangular section of the main horn. Anyway, enough of that. I am happy to answer any questions that may be asked Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  11. As an ambitious "DIY and have a goer" I tend to be a bit more optimistic too dependant on your determination, DIY skills, budget and timeline to get something up and running. Containers can be cut and joined either length ways or width ways, then clad inside etc. Not impossible to get a half decent result I say dont completely discount too soon before the concept has been explored properly
  12. welcome Chris. Your system sounds very interesting. Please tell us more about it when you have the chance
  13. Nice work Richard. Keep us posted on how you are doing and what you find with your horns. There are quite a few horns guys on SNA as you might have seen. Cheers
