  1. This is obviously not a hard rule, but I have heard people in the industry say that if the country of origin has an "E" in the name, then it is spelled whiskey. If no "E" in the country name then it is Whisky. YMMV Jeremy
  2. WLW is in my top 5 all time! I'm the same way, I don't like to open something if I don't have a back up. The 12's are getting crazy too; I also have a stash. I keep my bunker stocked with my favorites every time I can find them at retail. I have a good stash of Weller 12 and SR. I would like to add some antique 107 to not feel guilty about drinking it. I have a nice stash of Blanton's as well. I can't believe how hard that is to get now. I used to buy it at Walmart years ago! BTW nothing is for sale here either! I was just kidding about flipping...or was I? Would like Jubes though!
  3. If you're really into Old Forester then Birthday Bourbon is the end all. Every release I have tried is amazing, but it is getting harder to acquire each year. Dean, you have a real winner with the Whistle Pig 12 year Old World. Great Rye for the price. Whistle Pig does rye right IMO! Unfortunately this is currently a terrible market for drinkers of premium whiskey. Current supply is way below demand. With the current expansion in the industry that should change in about 10 years. Waiting patiently. I should flip some Pappy's and Weller's to fund some Jube's while the market is still crazy! Jeremy
  4. Have you tried bypassing the crossovers all together and just running from amp to woofer? You will do no harm by running full range to the woofer for testing. That should at least help narrow down where the issue lies.
  5. This pair recently sold in the Chicago area. Pretty good reference point actually. https://offerup.com/item/detail/726519555/

  7. This is an excellent point, and one I'm going to use with my wife!
  8. I'm curious how far apart they are and how far back do you sit? Sub is behind you, right?
  9. I am not in the market for these, but looking at the map on the CL listing, I am sitting about a mile away from these as I type this from my desk at work. If anyone needs assistance in facilitating a transaction for these speakers, I would be glad to help. Jeremy
  10. After looking at the pictures of your solder work, I feel there is some real irony in this statement. adjusting the top-most horn position for time-alignment, on music, was detectable by me to about 1/64th of an inch. I just have to call B.S. on this one. If your hearing is as gifted as you imply, you could make tremendous amounts of money consulting with manufacturers to make subjective matter absolute and eliminate needless, expensive measuring equipment.
  11. I don't know! that seems awful science-y
  12. This is the smartest comment I have read in this entire thread!
  13. I ride a Specialized Roubaix with Sram eTap. I have always lusted after Italian builds with Campy grouppo's. I have Fostex drivers in my Oris 200 horns. They are currently not set up. I am looking to upgrade drivers (Tang Band maybe?) I used to run them with a simple passive crossover to my Cornwall's K33. The future plans are to build some Jubilee clone bass bins and run Xilica active crossover.
  14. Nice work! There are lots of things for me to admire here, from a fellow DIY'er, Oris owner, and cyclist. I spy some fine Italian carbon hanging on the wall!
  15. I personally would worry too much about the difference in the DCR in this case, or how much different it is than its rating. There are so many other variables to the end result of reproducing amplified sound. If you are doing any kind of equalizing then it is a moot point. Since you are a tube amp builder you are aware of all of the differences between channels within your amp, like capacitor tolerances, or tube output/ bias difference. My point is, If they are drivers that you want and local, I would go for it. All of the differences in tolerances in the signal chain can be compensated for in one way or another.
  16. I just set up my daughters room with a bunch of these outlets because she got an Amazon Echo Dot for Christmas. She has the "smartest" room in my house! @wuzzzer It's working great Mark! Thanks for the good deal. Sorry for not getting back to you. With the holidays and all it was a couple weeks before I could spend time with it.
  17. Wifi outlets from Amazon. They can be turned off and on with your phone manually or via a schedule. They also work with Alexia or google home assist.
  18. Do you have a basement or crawl space? If so I would drill some holes at the baseboard and run those left speaker wires under the floor or a least get a rug.
  19. Only use the Titebond II and iron on method if your veneer has a backing. If you use that method on raw veneer it will seep through any imperfections in the wood grain and it will never accept stain or oil like the wood will.
  20. For perfect mitered veneer corners, you can slightly overlap the two perpendicular pieces at the joint. Then I use a speed square and align the 45° side to the corner. Use a razor to cut through both layers at the same time. Remove scrap and you will have a perfect joint.
  21. Another vote for Titebond II and ironing method. Aligning edges and grain is easier with a dry adhesive method.
