    Thorens td150 MkII restoration/Mod

    All looking nice so far Are you planing to use deadening on the chassis at some stage Not to hijack this thread but I own the famous TD 147 and have also embarked on a new timber plinth journey Although the TD147 is a better built TD 160 “super “ with auto lift at the dead wax. I will be maximising It’s potential with a few small mods Keep up the good work and keep up the updates

    3 Way Eliptrac Horn Klipsch La Scalas

    Thanks for updating me on the build history, now I have more information to ad on what I already know On my speakers John via Kevin added double thickness side panels and the exterior centre braces. They have certainly worked a treat From building many single driver speakers in the past I have never used dampening in any form in the horn sound path I even removed Johns dampening material from the Bass section and used my past building experience and tuned it to perfection This tweaking process was posted early on in this thread

    Just a quick question Are these factory standard - apart from the JBL tweeter
  7. I suppose if not already taken that will suit my amps 1 x 14wpc and 1 x 25wpc If not suitable I promise to pass them forward And also make a donation to SNA

    Vinyl / Records Currently Spinning

    Spinning now a traditional rock & roll with prog leanings album from 1978 This release is dominated with keyboards and guitar I’m sure most members will know this band and songs Extra info This album was part of a purchase I made a few weeks ago I was surprised that it was a sample gatefold record that Discogs say is from NZ Suprised that it’s as new and has the promo literature inside, this includes a story of the band a magazine clipping and a B&W photo See photos Artist - Styx Title - Pieces Of Eight

    Yes they are I was in contact with him when he was just starting them In fact the crossovers are built using 90% of my parts and components that I sold to him What speakers are you using them on @plato8010 Also good to see they are in Brisbane 👌

    Ducs cartridge isolation

    That looks the same as Duc’s I can make exactly the same thing as I have fine alloy sheet to sandwich the carbon fibre inside (I use this alloy sheet on projects ) So just need to purchase carbon fibre strip of the appropriate thickness But It’s not worth it to me to make just one or 2 personal units

    Ducs cartridge isolation

    I personally think 2mm is probably the ideal thickness You can do better Here you go I have found a strip so you only need one cut https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Carbon-Fibre-Strip-2-0Mm-X-12Mm-X-1M-Mecs0212/232156610722?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D52982%26meid%3Dc0c834a7aa7e4182a79f772cb022715e%26pid%3D100675%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D15%26sd%3D232156610722%26itm%3D232156610722&_trksid=p2481888.c100675.m4236&_trkparms=pageci%3Afd2cb764-8b54-11e8-b767-74dbd180433c|parentrq%3Ab2a900881640ac3c6c3ca456fff94921|iid%3A1 seller has a few different sizes available

    Ducs cartridge isolation

    Ebay is probably the easiest source Search for Carbon Fibre sheet xyz mm thick Re - photos it looks like Duc sanded the surfaces to make them flat

    Ducs cartridge isolation

    Then you can purchase small carbon fibre sheets in various thickness from 0.5 to 3mm and cut the thinner sheets to the size you require with scissors Cost is from $10 to $20 depending on thickness and can make a few dozen units

    Ducs cartridge isolation

    Is your cartridge isolator unit made out of carbon fibre ( a manufactured carbon / graphite film in various thickness) Or carbon as in burnt wood
