  1. Oops! I didn't read the tags tc
  2. I still have my pair of vert decorator Cw's (retired) that I ordered in '72. In '75(retired) I ordered my second pair (horz) in walnut. (wife) I used the '72's on their sides as centers for the "75's . Both sets were without question Cornwall 1's.. Don't think these are 2's. but anyway, too much $$$ You can buy finished CW's for less
  3. In '04 I had the 511b and 902 driver perched on top. Baby-cheeks tweet. Called them Alcorns. My wife was out of town came back the next day. She asked " What have you done to my walnut speakers"?
  4. Thanks . That's Right!! I saw some in the 60's. I once asked Hunter about them and he said they were called the Klipschorn Jr. Being old sucks
  5. Seti, it is my understanding that PWK didn't approve of bent mid horns. ??? Anyone?

    Marantz 15

    I believe the 15's were Saul Marantz first SS amps. Mono blocks bolted together behind a plate front cover. Had a pair in the early '70's. with the mod 14. A mono block used as a center channel amp. Ran his 7T preamp. Sweet sounding gear back in the day. tc
  7. I run dual 15" drivers in reflex bins with horn loaded mids and top. My ear tells me to keep the LF in the bins and not to allow it to creep up into the mid horn. And don't want the cone drivers to produce any of the mids as well. So I use an ESN design on my bass board. Could be just me.....or only apply in a bass reflex unit ??? tc
  8. I don't believe that you will find one in the US. AH! products are sold only by Upscale Audio. You might try calling AH! in Holland but I expect that they are very guarded due to their contract with Upscale. tc
  9. Tom, I have read your posts for years and have always respected your opinions. I must disagree with this one and run the "fools bi-amp". Use two bridged Luxman M -117's (refurbish) on the bottom through an ESN circuit for the LF. And two McIntosh 100's on the top. I switched the setup around and listened for mouths. The passive Bi-amp sounds much better that the other configurations. Regards, tc
  10. People can't get a mask so they wrap their heads in TP.
  11. Those are great looking decorators!!!
  12. I have never seen damage that bad. Destroyed! I would demand my money from seller. PS: I'm very sorry!
  13. Outstanding choice!! With "boot in the chest' LF I love it as well...
  14. Unsatisfactory look ??? I always kept mine with the back to a wall or a corner....Didn't look at the back unless moving
  15. I may be a freak as well. I like the Lux
  16. The back is more important than the motor board IMHO The 3/4" ply works great! To my ear it made the back side of the woofer more pronounced Just be careful and not screw into the mid driver.
  17. Great choice Jerry! Listened to them with 402/510 combo. Devastating !!! LF like a boot in the chest.
  18. I always poke the bear with a stick on this one...... Only horn loaded bass bins are effortless with low distortion???? How about the nasty old reflex speakers? Isn't the KPT 415 a 107db bass bin. And it has a Slam Factor of 10! And PS: Maroon 5 sucks big smile
  19. Can someone please explain this to me? The USA is oil independent. ?? The largest producer in the world. So why do fuel prices go up when a Saudi well gets attacked? Or if a US refinery burns, prices go up the next day when there is no shortage ???
  20. Ah come on.... I had a construction company for many years and protected my ears on the job. Saved them for music.
