    • Is there a similar cabinet to the right of the hearth?
    • Thanks for the info. I thought/perceived it as being very obvious. It just seems like everything coming into focus.   Bruce
    • Black Sabbath going prog.    
    • I read what you did on your web site.  I thought it looked doable if done carefully.   I guess I'm partially asking whether the diaphragms are a part that wears out.     Is there a complete driver that is an upgrade on a LaScala?
    • There is a post with all donors and their corresponding membership classification in this section. Also, most if not all of us that attended the four day work week are still in recovery mode from the ninety plus degree temperatures at the Watermelon Festival and the four day work weekend at the museum. The folks that were there working can attest to the sweltering heat which greatly affected everyone.    There is also a post detailing the work that was scheduled to be done during the Volunteer Work Week.  For the most part, all goals were met or exceeded prior to and during that four day work weekend.    Steam pipes contributing to foooding of basement sealed    Previous non operational central air unit removed from outside of building   Gutters repaired/painted in rear section of museum. Extensions put on downspouts to direct water away from building.    Low section in driveway partially filled to redirect water away from stairwell    Old awning over pre existing air conditioning removed    New aluminum awning purchased installed the length of the building, in the north side of the building covering the stairwell.    Second window air conditioning unit purchased and installed   Bathroom in museum repaired and fully operational   New sump pump purchased and installed   60 yards of fill soil delivered, tractor rented, 30 yards spread to improve grade around building before rain set in   Basement partially cleaned out and trash hauled off.    Industrial shelving moved into basement    All of this plus more was accomplished. As stated before a huge shout out to @ssh, @guywithwine, @hogwylde09, @pappyIII, @Ole Dollar, @kharmondds, @JRH, @dtel and @Chief bonehead for all the help.    @guywithwine and @Ole Dollar singlehandedly took care of the Watermelon Festival Booth, with @JRH assisting with set up and pick up each day.    To the rest of you, y'all rocked that four day work weekend.    Pics to follow.    In addition, there is an telephonic Executive Committee meeting two to three times a month to determine the direction the Museum is heading. These meeting generally consist of Jim Hunter, Curator/president, Kevin Harmon, Vice President, myself, Secretary, Stacey Atchison, Treasurer/CPA, Seti, Board Member, Richard Groves and Travis Williamson, legal counsel. These meeting generally last close to two hours. Additionally, our Board of Directors meet several times a year with our next Board Meeting scheduled for October.    I can assure you this noble effort has direction. Perks for Founding Members are finally being processed, new membership classes are being established, our website is nearly populated, grants have been applied for, social media outlets are being utilized, we are in the early stages of establishing a building fund, our Treasurer/CPA is in the preliminary stages of preparing our 990 return for the IRS.             
    • The back plate on the K-55M has been known to get loose and vibrate. This can sound like distortion at times. A little silicone caulk will hold it in place. Quick and easy fix (IF that is the problem). Worth a try.
    • I have drawing but on a drive I cannot access. This is a simple design to copy you can see the approximate dimensions the front plenum is the same siv=ze as the outer edge of the woofer suspension the mounting plate is over sized. You have the outside physical dimensions from the Peavey data and the cabinet material is  either 5/8 or 3/4 inch material so you can scale this up on a piece of paper. The exact dimensions are not critical as this is to begin with not a horn but rather a crude wave guide, it is too short in length and the mouth too small to be critical in any way but as you can see it it works well enough and is still a popular sounding horn with lots still in use today. Hope this helps. Perhaps one of our members with an MB2 would be kind enough to post the dimension so an exact copy can be made but I assure a good approximation will do just as good a job. So far as I can recall the vertical walls of the plenum are parallel.   just so others reading have the same info as you do (to help make this thread more useful) https://www.manualslib.com/manual/306486/Peavey-Mb-2.html https://assets.peavey.com/literature/manuals/80301016.pdf here is a video with a look inside  
    • There are no diaphragms available for the K-55M.  I have managed to modify K-55V diaphragm to use in the K-55M, but that is a tricky procedure and probably not a good thing to do as long as yours are working.   Bob Crites
    • Thanks guys. They will fit inside the far left/right cabinet slots in this photo. As I mentioned, we had planned to have cabinet doors with grill cloth but maybe not anymore! I have yet to hear these particular speakers but will crank them up when our new house is finished in a couple of months.
