Couldn't agree more.

Triple threat. Nice.

Hmmm, why do I not have the option to attach photos on SNA anymore?

You can talk to mods to find out. I got locked out of resounding to posts for 8 hours today.

There was something screwy going on today. All the classified ads had zero view counts for the whole day, even with a few replies. The multiple post I messaged you about kept jumping to the end of the thread all day. Really weird.

I'm sure it will come good in time.

No shade, no lemonade. Forums are hard. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

 

It’ll come good. It just confuses the cr@p out of me when it goes wrong. :)

I was told, electronicly that I couldn’t post for over 33000 seconds. Mods and tech said it was my fault and they had no way of fixing it. 

 

Then told to delete all web data and cookies. So I lost all my auto logins etc. And that changed nothing. Then told I had to wait out the time, about 8 hours. 

 

And all of this is because a post faulted. I guess they don’t know there are ways to rebuild a client file\data and reset it without loss of post counts etc. I did this stuff for 25 years.

That’s because no one is trained any more. I spent years learning the basics, building fileservers from scratch from high end parts and loading the OS then tweaking it. No one has these skills any more.

I’m not a programmer but I’d presume that’s because the money is perceived to be in front end apps, not infrastructure.

It does appear single drivers and SE tube amps are common. Nice and simple. 

It is the case that many high efficiency speakers are designed to be used with higher output devices. We know this is in particular true with the Fostex FExx6 series (we asked the designer).

 

Many higher end ones follow this same route.

 

Because there are no XOs and imedance is much flatter (and often complementary), higher impedance amplifiers can find a home.

Only about 5 hours on the Fast-10 drivers so they'll just keep getting better  :)

Typically break-in on the better FRs is closer to hundres of hours than 10s.

Here's another of my single driver speakers.  These are commercially built by Akai.  

Those Akai have a particularily nice version of the FE103A class driver, there were many* manufactures doing a 4” FR for the same OEM box holes. * At one point i had 24 different variations all together at the same time.

These drivers, in my experience, are best in Aiko (a small-big Woden horn — here w FE108e∑eN):

It looked, to me, like the clock was wrong for a while, and some things got posted "in the future".

I messaged SNA but they said there was nothing wrong with my account and there was nothing they could do. To their credit they did try.
