  1. I wonder if someone who owns Yamaha NS1000 or 1000M or could measure distances between front cover plug holes centre to centre in both directions please. I am trying to see if the front covers from any other 1000 variants will fit NS1000X Cheers Mike
  2. Apparently there is now a cafe of the same name above where the old shop was.
  3. If you scroll back through this thread you find a few mentions of the Recorded Music Salon which was Melbournes most idiosyncratic HiFi / music shop.
  4. Absolutely. My only point was that a bright yellow gorilla with a flashing light on its head is generally more likely to be seen . The more times you notice there are gorillas around the more likely you are to watch out for them in future ( hopefully anyway ).
  5. I think this is largely true but... Where I live we have a big increase in the number of cyclists at this time of year. There is , from many of the people who live here , a widespread dislike of cyclists on local roads however I have recently heard positive comments from some of these people complimenting the increasing number of cyclists using truly bright tail lights and wearing bright coloured clothes. Whilst some locals are simply impatient many are genuinely concerned they may hit and injure a cyclist. These people are saying anything that a cyclist does that makes them more visible , while obviously not foolproof, really helps . Cheers Mike
  6. Not referring to the design of the crossovers but to their construction,. I built the original crossovers as designed by JohnK in rough ! form . When Hank took over the project he rebuilt the crossovers as shown in his pics above .
  7. I think a refinish will help. Looking forward to pics of completed speakers.
  8. I didnt mean the design of the waveguide. I meant improve the quality of its build which was , putting it nicely, somewhat less than perfect.
  9. I would have been very surprised if you were altering the baffle shape. Given your big improvement of the crossovers I am hoping you might make a matching improvement of the tweeter waveguide .
  10. Hank, I am sure you know this but as Dave says John K designed the speaker with the particular baffle shape to be a true dipole over the maximum possible range taking into account the drivers different directivities , the crossovers and the exact baffle widths. John was keen not to even vary the baffle thickness . If you use a simple rectangle you will get an ordinary open baffle speaker not the special speaker the Note was designed to be. Cheers Mike
  11. Hard to tell when we cant see the back. I thought maybe it only showed the woofers on a baffle in a rather substantial metal frame.
  12. Hank, good to see this happening. Crossovers looking good. Definitely a big improvement on their previous state. Are you doing the U frame bass arrangement ? Looking forward to more updates soon. Cheers Mike
  13. OK ,thanks. Didnt realise that. I will look and see where I put the brochure and rescan if the OP indicates they would like me to. Cheers Mike
  14. If you search Stereonet there is a thread about Audio Definition. I am pretty sure I posted scans of the Enterprise brochure in that thread. Cheers Mike
