But you have built in 25 Hz HP - think of the savings!

 

I think I just got it - I should have said "4th order passive LP" for Twins - meaning at 200 Hz.

Haha! I like your divider Matt. The cheeky things have a habit of gravitation towards each other at a great rate of knots!

I find this stuff handy.

Indeed.

Large magnets like these require respect when close together, can pinch a finger or damage each other.

 

Happy with the new tweeters, they came in good working order and measure the same for dB output for given attenuation and have very high value to me as a part of completing a set of JBL PRO Compression Drivers for the set of 3 horns that I have.

Next is to slowly put back together the center mid flare set, requiring at a minimum, 4 drivers a rear enclosure and a couple of metal brackets.

Might go active with these so the passive filters will get a bypass switch as hopefully the only modification from stock standard.

I heard you say a few times about replacing the mids, what actually wrong with them? Are they the 8" compression mids or a more standard driver?

I heard you say a few times about replacing the mids, what actually wrong with them? Are they the 8" compression mids or a more standard driver?

Hi Linc, the mids are a fairly standard fair, dedicated mids with flat foam surrounds, 50mm coils from memory, re build kits from 

http://reconingspeakers.com/product/jbl-165h-aftermarket-recone-kit/

 

4 of the drivers in one of the flares, foam surrounds have been damaged and repaired with thin skim of silicone or something similar around the foam. Otherwise fine, don't rattle or anything.

Other flare looks like it was made a year ago, not a mark, drivers perfect.

 

Going to order the re cones and 1 new driver very soon. Once I know the re cones fit, re do the 4 dodgy ones.

Reason I will order a driver is if the re cone kit isn't right I'm not down the speaker set for real jobs in field (if they come)

The last week has shattered any patients I have no peace and will need time to come right, not well.

(at least it's here not broken physically and looks nice not scratched or anything)

 

Catch everyone soon.

Hi Linc. yes there will be, the Ultimate Preamplifier is an almost entirely different  Interface to the miniDSP so will take a "learning curve" to get a decent handle on it.

 

Have to sort out to start with a 2 way filter with graphic EQ on each filter band  to start with

Filter will be 28Hz HP to 200Hz/ 200Hz up, this would do the Festival Rig fine.

 

So utilising the 3 way passive in the JBL 4632M-HF for a start and work from there, slowly weaning onto additional channels such as Exidos sub Quartet as things move along.

 

Going to take a while, have a lot of Hardware things to accomplish first.

Purchased some 20mm metric all thread this morning for the amplifier road cases,  have a very nice cunning plan there. Everything comes in pairs !

Sensible steps are a good plan Matt. Good work as always.

Looking forward to seeing what you do with the Booker rod!

Plan is 2 simple 3 shelf amp racks and make them taller as things progress.

:) should be tough enough to transport ok, strap the amps down with zip webbing

Pull over to stop an amp from jumping about (2 per device) , in worse case if the stand fell over these would go a long way to hold them place on their shelves.

 

It's the best compromise I can think of instead of racking the electronics, which to me is a little industrial looking.

      Item: Garrard Zero 100 S Tangential Arm Turntable
      Location: Langwarrin
      Price: $250 *Withdrawn*
      Item Condition: Excellent
      Reason for selling: NLR
      Payment Method: Pickup Only
      Extra Info: This is a very nice example of this model and a credit to the previous SNA member KWTools, who had it stored under the bed for many years.
      Everything works and it appears to have done very few hours judging by the overall condition. No idea what the cartridge is but it is missing the cantilever/stylus but I will leave it attached.
      I had planned to replinth and resurrect it, but too many projects, too little time.

      Item: Luxman Turntable PD-441 with Micro MA-505 tonearm and AT-F3II MC cartridge 
      Location: Queensland
      Price: 1499
      Item Condition:Used
      Reason for selling: Not using anymore
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: Am selling my Luxman PD-441 turntable, it is not been used anymore, comes complete with Micro Seiki tonearm MA-505 and audiotechnica MC cart AT-F3II. Cart is used but still in very good condition. Also have a extra tonearm base that fit vintage SME tonearms included in the sale. Complete package and ready to be used.
       
      Condition is ok, there is a small crack on the cover as you see on the pics. Writings on the turntable have come off partially. The turntable was serviced power supply electrolytic replaced and adjusted. Functionality is 100%. The light on the power switch does not work however that does not affect the functionality. Blue light for 33 and orange for 45 work very well. A excellent turntable, featuring the load free spindle motor. 
       
      I will ship anywhere in Australia but prefer pick up. Shipping costs will be covered from buyer and happy to accomodate any requests. 
       
      Thank you
