    I am not "nobody." I am the sole creator the Quarter Pie Horn. I extrapolated the Klipsch MWM with a clear thought process and simulation, over several months and many iterations of virtual design experimentation, and did not publish it until I actually built 2 of them and showed the measurements, along with the benefits. It's not perfect, nothing is (even the Klipsch Designs have their anomalies) but it's a darn good sounding bass horn using the least amount of floor space possible and efficiently using up the air space afforded by a corner (as opposed to a LaScala totally wasting that dead air space). From "the sweet spot," my Quarter Pie (MWM derived) horn totally STOMPS a LaScala if you can handle the lumber sticking out into the room an extra foot. Even though I have been helping people free of charge for over 13 years on this forum, I do have a life outside of it. over 6,000 posts should prove that and need no further explanation.

    Boston is the debut studio album by American rock band Boston. Produced by Tom Scholz and John Boylan,[1] the album was released on August 25, 1976, in the United States by Epic Records. Scholz had studied classical piano in his childhood and became involved in the Boston music scene in the late 1960s. He subsequently started to concentrate on demos recorded in his apartment basement with singer Brad Delp, and although their previous group, Mother's Milk, had received numerous rejection letters from major record labels in the early 1970s, by 1975, the demo tape had fallen into the hands of CBS-owned Epic Records, who signed them. Boston Studio album by Boston Released August 25, 1976 Recorded October 1975 – April 1976 Studio Foxglove (Watertown, MA) Capitol (Hollywood, CA) Record Plant (Los Angeles, CA) Genre Hard rock Length 37:41 Label Epic Producer John Boylan Tom Scholz Boston chronology Boston (1976) Don't Look Back (1978) Singles from Boston "More Than a Feeling" Released: September 18, 1976 "Long Time" Released: January 7, 1977 "Peace of Mind" Released: April 1977 Epic wanted the band to record in Los Angeles with a record producer, but Scholz was unwilling and wanted to record the album in his basement studio, so he hired Boylan to run interference with the label. In an elaborate ruse, Scholz tricked the label into thinking the band was recording on the West Coast, when in reality, the bulk was being tracked solely by Scholz at his Massachusetts home. The album's contents are a complete recreation of the band's demo tape, and contain songs written and composed many years prior. The album's style, often referred to as the "Boston sound", was developed through Scholz's love of classical music, melodic hooks and guitar-heavy rock groups such as the Kinks and the Yardbirds, as well as a number of analogue electronic effects developed by Scholz in his home studio. Scholz would later found Scholz Research & Development, Inc. to market many of his inventions that he used in developing the sound on the album. The album was released by Epic in August 1976 and sold extremely well, breaking sales records, becoming the best-selling debut album in the US at the time, and winning the RIAA Century Award as best selling debut album.[2] The album's singles, most notably "More Than a Feeling" and "Long Time", were both AM and FM hits, and nearly the entire album receives constant rotation on classic rock radio. The album has been referred to as a landmark in 1970s rock and has been included on many lists of essential albums. The album has sold 17 million copies in the United States alone and 25 million worldwide.

    Almost done! Just waiting for my ALK extreme slope crossovers. Everything installed and just finished the black screens in the ports. Came out nice. I installed some crites cornscala crossovers I picked up a bit ago until the ALK's are done. I only installed about 4 screws in the back of each speaker so I could test them, and when i turned them up, it almost blew the backs off? lol! I thought I had blown the drivers but it was just the backs rattling. These B&C bass drivers put out prodigious amounts of air movement! They sound pretty incredible already, I can only imagine what they will sound like with Much better crossovers. I would venture to say that you would have to search far and wide for a pair of cornscalas of this magnitude? They turned out even better than I imagined. I will put up picks of the finished insides soon, as soon as I get the ALK crossovers. Good day to all....

    Regarding the issue of using (or excluding) musically trained folks as listeners: I had heard that Toole found such listeners to have poor test-retest reliability (and a consistent sensitivity). Although this is not universal across all musician-subjects, it has certainly been noted elsewhere (including labs that I have worked in).

    PPS by "closer to spec" meant "closest to nominal value possible," and ALSO "matching a given L/network component [cap] value as close as feasible to the R/network value" i.e., "cap-match" at the execution level. Design dependent. Seldom have I seen anybody remark on HOW "important" this might be. Does that mean "relatively" UN-important? Assuming manufacturers quality control(s) typically render components w/in spec, which seems to "vary" somewhat by design/type. Anyhow IF something means something, then there's way(s) to quantify or at least qualify it. Else it's hand-waving and/or gobbledygook hence meaningless. To what EXTENT is always end-game. Answers like "inaudible" SEEMS useless UNTIL one ascribes "at what POINT inaudible." Even if accidentally. "We installed the wrong nominal cap value" and "then something SOUNDED wrong," and/or "it MEASURED wrong" &tc &tc. I know it's into the weeds but ya never know 'till ya KNOW Lol! Glad Tidings! Mo

    Who would want the dog and pony show that hiring him would bring? Making throws with no defense to read or guys bearing down on him means very little. He has other things going against him also. For starters he was a back up quality quarterback when he left the league. He's also wanting to join a team so late in the year that he'd barely get the play book down before the end of the season. I wouldn't give up a roster spot for him.

    Did not get a notice of your question. Basically the Four 45 degree cut corners make the two triangular areas part of the Back Air Chamber Volume, even though mechanically, they are forward of the woofer throat sections, they are actually, ACOUSTICALLY, part of the back air chamber volume, which drops the peak down a bit at the horn cutoff frequency of about 51 Hz.

    Good photos Jim! Shake-up at the top again, It's a shame that Tua T. got hurt like that. Gotta hurt for all of you Alabama fans because of how capable he was. Not just the rest of the year but a fracture in that large of a bone could mess up his future too.

    Yea being a former addict myself and having those 12-step meetings just change me over to coffee as my choice drug I do too. But then there is today when i get the pork chops cooked in time after getting mom's meds, breakfast in her, both of us showered, two loads of laundry done..... Two matinees today first intermission is almost up for my `Canes up 2-0 over the Timberwolves and Tigers going 11-0 real soon. So second coffee being only the 20 oz min for my pot I ground for 5 seconds and got too much. It will still be fresh the next time I need a fix!

    The weather in Southeast Michigan is clear and cold at 9:30 am. The hourly forecast for Ann Arbor predicts mostly cloudy and temps in the 20s at game time in the annual clash between Wolverines and Spartans. The weather in South Bend is predicted to be slightly warmer at game time in the Notre Dame vs Navy tilt. In either case, I’d want to watch from the warm comfort of home. For me, the game day atmosphere, although exciting, doesn’t offset the advantages of watching televised coverage you can record, pause and, reverse as needed.

    I have settled on a morning coffee ,and I don't feel the need to look any farther. Its a local place called TJs Roasters. I get a bag of their Ethiopia beans and a bag of their Guatemala beans and mix half and half in the grinder. This to me is perfect. Also the wife found this at TJ Maxx, and its works well for storing beans. Push the botton on top and it gets the the air out and seals the container. Its OXO brand. https://tjsroaster.com/shop

    I did a little 'bedroom' test for you. From left to right: Denon 30W 6 ohm bookshelf speakers (price around €120), Amazon 8 HD fire tablet, Tubecube 7 and a China made 50W 'hybrid' amp. The 50Watt hybrid amp (€70) can play the tiles off the roof with these tiny speakers and sounds really good. It comes with bluetooth, minijack and rca inputs. The Tubecube (€175/€300) has connections for 4/6/8 ohm speakers - which is rather remarkable. The sound is really good as well, while the volume can be pretty loud, but it will never blow the tiles off the roof.

    Speaking of chi-fi and slightly off subject, I bought a topping DAC and I have been very very happy with it for what I paid. Big improvement over the DAC included in the parasound Halo integrated and I got it for under 400 out the door brand new. Model DX7S. Tremendous value and bang-for-the-buck IMO.

    Me neither, but I like it! Chi-fi. You have to be careful with the chi-fi. Some look quite tempting on ebay and other websites but read the buyer reviews, and if you do have problems, return shipping to china can be most costly. I have read of some buyers being very unhappy with their chi-fi purchases after the fact.

    Consumer lines only: Best Jubilee preferrably bi-amped and EQd-- see Chris A's posts Klipschorn AK 4, AK5, (AK6?). La Scala II, III (II and III probably better?) or Belle Klipsch (all need a subwoofer -- in my room, below 60 Hz). Consider a horn loaded subwoofer to preserve tight, clean bass. Forte III Heresy III, IV, probably IV is best, with a subwoofer Top of the Reference or Reference Premiere line. Worst (but still good) All have clear, low distortion midrange and treble, high dynamic range, sensitivity ranging from high to extremely high. Those with horn loaded bass (Jubilee, Klipschorn, La Scala II and III, and Belle Klipsch) also have clean, low distortion bass. There is nothing as clean in the bass as well designed horn loading. All could probably use some EQ, especially a slight midrange cut and some judicious bass boost. In general, they are noted for clarity, openness, high dynamic range as well as good microdynamics, excellent brass and percussion. They may not be as smooth ("flat") in frequency response as some (usually more expensive) "audiophile" speakers, but those same "audiophile" speakers sometimes sound veiled by comparison. Your own ears, in your own room, should be your final judge. Listen with a great variety of program material. Buy with a return privilege.

    Let me update you on WVU's impressive rushing offense vs FCS powerhouse James Madison: The strength of WV's offense this season is the running backs. They combined for 34 yards in 24 carries for an incredible 1.4 yards per carry. The long run of the day was 5 yards. You just can't stop an explosive offense like that. They can reel off 1.4 yards anytime they want. If anybody cares WVU trailed 7-3 at halftime and won 20-13. It's going to be a loooong season.

    I'm a little at a loss to fully understand your question. Wider crossover bands blend the output of both drivers/horns, thus increasing the effective polar coverage in the frequency band above 300 Hz where the Jubilee bass bin polars fall below 75 degrees included angle (here taken in full space in the chamber...and Roy has reminded me that this is probably a much worse case than the typical eighth space loading in a real listening room corner): The K-402 horn covers much better at that frequency band: I assume that the La Scala midrange coverage on its bottom end is wider than the La Scala bass bin in the 300-500 Hz region, even though I don't have an applicable polar coverage plot for those two horns/drivers.

    Definitely not helping to make your point. It’s obvious that you did not understand what I wrote. In case you don’t know, Paul’s four points; high efficiency, low distortion, controlled directivity, and controlled freq response. That’s what I am for and as long as I can help it, that will be the case. Will a Cornwall sound good in a typical living room? Yep. Will a ki396, 904 or even a grand system......you betcha. You gain headroom, headroom, headroom. Did I mention headroom? There is no compromise on the acoustic goals but only with what physics and economics limits us. Like bass extension and price points. So before you categorically decide that pro speakers are lacking the attributes of a home system, go listen to one. And now I really hope you get it.......meanwhile back to bass fishing.

    I, and many here, disagree. What allows efficient low distortion at high volumes, frequently provides exemplary sound at domestic volume levels. Jubilees are a case in point.

    So you're basically saying "I've heard 'em all and can tell you unequivocally that the XXX's sound better than the rest." Of course, it's not practical for someone choosing b/w MCM 1900's and K-horns to hear them in the same environment, same day, using the same music and - preferably - blinded. So they can either take your word for it or maybe give some thought to what your suggesting; that Klipsch speakers are engineered for huge spaces, and practically no boundary reflections are better sounding that those engineered specifically for the dimensions and volumes of a typical home environment. I have no expectations of changing your mind or that of anyone else who already owns these speakers. My goal is to inform the person, who has not yet purchased their speakers, to give serious thought to each side of this discussion and come to their own decision about which is more likely to be true.
