  1. my ALK Universals are sold... thanks Julian
  2. I have a pair of modified "original design" ALK Universals to sell... Original design meaning they have the 2.4 mH inductors, 40 uF and 7.2 uF values with Harmony bypass capacitors.. they also have Hovland Musicaps for 2.2uF values... Modified meaning all wire now is 14 awg silver plated copper teflon, I removed the cheap tin braid, the multi connect spaghetti crap hookups and replaced the Lynx resistor with a Mills... not shown in my pictures are (2) pairs of connectors to the autoformers... $300 shipped

  5. I built a switch box that allows (1) pair RCA In and (4) pairs RCA out... I keep (3) amps connected, a pair a various set, Mac 2105 and an Art Audio PX25 stereo tube amp...

LED indicator for the switch powered by a 9v battery mounted inside.. cardas RCA's and solid silver wire.. bubinga box..

  13. two reasons for the bees wax... 1) I already had it.. 2) paraffin is petroleum based and dangerous around an open flame, even though I used a crock pot... bees wax is way more expensive though... both the viscosity and melt temp of both are very close... with regard to potting guitar pickups I have read the best is a ration of paraffin and bees wax... and very important to pre heat the coil... I do like it loud...
  14. this idea started when I bought a pair of the wax impregnated 3670 autoformers from Dean... after installing they seems to add a positive benefit... and after some reading it seemed to me that there is indeed a benefit of eliminating any mechanical vibration or as much as possible... so this holiday weekend I spent taking my crossovers apart and soaking all the inductors in wax.... got a crock pot with a low setting, put in 3lbs of bees wax and let it melt which took a couple hours... preheated the inductors at 125 prior (this is critical), removed 2 or 3 of the wire ties and let them soak in the crock pot one at a time until the tiny air bubbles stopped, which was 15-20 minutes on average... after removing from the crock pot and wiping down I immediately replaced all the wire ties... caution : hot hot hot.... let them dry for 24hrs before reassembly.... perhaps a total waste of time ?... but to me well worth the effort.... this is obviously subjective as I cannot or do not know if its even possible to measure anything related to this... but I am happy with the result... top left diy ALK es5800 .... top right original ALK Universals bottom left diy mid and low ALK es400... bottom right diy "new ALK universal (48uF cap and 1.3 mH inductor)
