  1. Anyone know the model number and specs? Thanks.
  2. Eminence 121630B, JAY5120, 67-0433C 0877 anyone have any idea or guess?
  3. Endo. Pardon my failure to post clearly. Duh!! these have all components and grills These have Klipsch Type E crossovers and I am Recapping with Sonicap caps. The grills are included which have neo magnets. I plan to replace the cane grill material which has one spot on each grill Unless someone wants them as they are. Here is a pic of one crossover with new caps to be installed. I’ll post pics tomorrow or pm me and can email. I can’t resize photos on my iPhone. Thanks
  4. I posted about these in the Tech Mod section. Here's the link detailingT he redo. I may not attend the reunion this year (I live in Little Rock) but may send these with a friend for anyone to see/hear/buy. Just bought and installed brand new Crites 1228 woofers with new Sonicap caps. Grill frame is magnetic. Veneer on the front board as well with bracing inside. Price is $775.00 Thanks Longdrive03
  5. Thanks guys. I just bought new Crites 1228 woofers for these. I'm going to list them in the for sale area and maybe have a friend bring them to the reunion if anyone is interested.
  6. Rockhound, Kinda hit a slow spell due to cold wet weather and burnout. I got these final sanded and waxed with steel wool and they're slicker than a boil onion. Just need to get the new Crites woofers and install components. A local friend might want to trade for two pair of beat up Heresys. Need to clean up the shop ( I think I have a tablesaw in there somewhere) and get crackin. A friend wants me to build some small towers for him so that might be my motivation
  7. Than for the compliments Shakeydeal. Oldtimer i use Heatlock iron on veneer glue from joewoodworker.com Works great. I buy it by the gallon. If you buy in the winter be sure to add the extra charge to prevent freezing of the glue during shipping. Joe is a great guy. If you don't have a glue roller Joe sells a good one cheap and you can buy extra foam rollers (not the cheapy kind). joewoodworker.com;
  8. I got lucky and bought a big lot of aircraft grade wood backed veneers used by Falcon Jet to redo corporate jets. It’s made by Booth Veneers. Flame retardant since it’s used in jets.
  9. Thanks Weziewoo! Appreciate the compliment. Wish I could get some sunny days to take pics outside
  10. Got another set of Hs in the oven. These are a set of 1982 consecutive serial number birch ply H models. K-22-E woofers, (which I'm replacing) K-52H mid drivers and square magnet K77 tweeters with Type E crossover which will be recapped with Sonicaps. I cut off the front trim flush with motorboard to veneer the motorboard after inserting neo magnets to hold the original grills. Installed new front edge trim with veneer on the inside of the trim, then veneered the sides and top then veneered the front trim on the front. I installed front to back brace to reduce resonance which is screwed and glued to the motorboard and one the sides with 2 screws through the back into the edge of the brace. Six coats of poly and about to final sand/wax. Grills have neo magnets attached. Will have these for sale upon completion over in garage sale section. This veneer is really beautiful. Lots of figure. Will probably use Crites 1228 woofers. I dropped my blower and it bounced against one woofer cone and tore it. 😩 YIKES!! I will repair but will go with two new woofers on these puppies.
  11. Thanks guys. Sound good. Owner loves them. Fit great in his kitchen. I used 3/4” BB ply throughout except for sides of bass bin I used 1.25” ply to cut down vibration.
  12. Built the separate bass bin and tophat for a friend using Crites 15" cast frame woofers, K500 horns and xovers purchased from a forum member (Thanks Al) wit K77 tweeters. The tophat is movable and the risers are covered with felt on the bottom to prevent scratching the cabinets. Cherry veneer with poly finish and rubbed down with 0000 steel wool and finishing wax. Custom made new 1/2" ply grills with hidden neo magnets.
