  1. Zero feedback design? The amp’s frequency response is tracking the impedance of the loudspeaker.
  2. That’s what “Platt” is. It is a dialect, sometimes a mish mash of several. My Opa did not like me speaking it. I just realized I don’t even know why. Maybe Heinz knows. High German is German proper.
  3. My Mom is German. I lived in Speicher until I was 10. I was born in Savanna, Georgia, but was only there six weeks. When we moved back to the states, I spoke fluent high German and Platt. My English was terrible. I can sometimes still understand it, but can no longer speak it.
  4. My first system was my Mom’s Grundig, which she gifted to me - it looked almost just like that. It sounded stupid good in my smallish bedroom. I think it may have been all downhill after that, lol.
  5. It will be a few days before I even see them. Hopefully by Saturday so I can ship them back on Monday.
  6. I will use this thread to document the work using pictures. People deciding to do this should have decent desoldering/soldering skills, and be prepared to do some out of the box thinking. Replacement parts rarely just fall into place.
  7. I was hoping I could be the one to ruin them. 🙂
  8. UPS quoted me $133.46, plus he has to pay VAT. DF between all of these different Mylar/polyester capacitors is basically the same. What is probably not the same is tolerance.
  9. I thought it was about trying to help someone in Italy who doesn’t want to pay $150.00 in shipping costs.
  10. @ampedI hope it’s not too late - don’t use that adhesive on that material. If you ever have to remove anything, it’ll destroy the board. Also, long cure time, and I wouldn’t get any real heat near it for at least 24 hours. If you send me the networks I will do them for free, just pay for shipping both ways. You would actually be doing me a favor because when the kits were announced, I knew these might be a major pain. It gives me a chance to work the puzzle and to help out Jim (JEM).
  11. Don’t say “cheap”, you’ll scare the children.
  12. Nothing wrong with that. Saves him the trouble of diaphragm replacements.
  13. I thought he could do Mouser for the capacitors? Jantzen is Danish, and they’re part of the EU. Their products should be everywhere over there.
  14. Been a while since I worked on those. Aren’t there two PCB versions, one that is double stacked and one that’s single? Doesn’t that 6uF mount vertically? It doesn’t matter which way they are oriented, it’s AC. I do cave to my OCD and orient them the same on both networks. I like that adhesive, but once it’s on that’s it. I would let it cure at least 24 hours before getting any heat near it. Could I please see a good pic. Thanks, Dean
  15. Roy doesn’t like the zeners and I don’t like the polyswitch. I haven’t put tweeter protection in anything I’ve built in 20 years - no complaints. CCF12192022.pdf
  16. Lol. It’s just a super close up of the solder joint.
  17. You just clip the lead from the other side of the cap - you don’t need the whole thing.
  18. I would turn them into AA’s. You need two additional 2uF capacitors and two 245uH (.25mH) inductors (20 gauge wire). You should be able to find Jantzen inductors over there pretty easily.
