  1. you can grow potatoes on Mars. It's true, I saw it on a movie.
  2. i have my K-Horns tilted out from the corners quite a bit, and with the backs enclosed, they sound great
  3. Dave, I'm probably going to start back on the project this fall. I'm like you, doing summer projects right now. I have a 4:11 rear end to put in the Vette still.
  4. Dave, I have a pair of Crites cast woofers sitting around that I'm not using yet. they are for my K-Horn project that is a couple months from being finished. If you want to try them out to see if there is a difference, you're welcome to use them.
  5. I think you should post some pics of your current setup to see how far your journey has taken you.
  6. I'm only 60 miles from the Canadian border @Port Huron, but I don't think they'll let me in!
  7. This is all common knowledge. The EE's want you to believe that you are receiving privileged info, but it is merely a smokescreen. Commoners will never know the "secrets".
  8. I retired a little over a year ago. I live in Michigan. So the first thing a Michigander thinks about upon retiring is moving to FLA, or somewhere else warm. But here is the thing: living in MI, you get 4 distinct seasons. Don't like the weather, wait a week. We are now in a heat wave, mid ninety's all week long. In January I pray for this kind of weather. In July, I can't stand it. Too hot to do anything. Makes me rethink moving to FLA, and having to deal with this with no relief in sight. But it's cold and snowy half the year! So what! If you are retired, you don't have to go out in it. Project time! Spin records, build speakers. Enjoy not having to mow the lawn every 5 days. I guess I'm too used to having different seasons to do different things in. The weather aligns nicely with my ADHD, so I don't have to stay focused on one thing for too long!
  9. I'm happy with the Crites cast woofers in my K-Horns.
  10. I wish I was closer, I'd be all over that!
  11. Claude, did you ever see Catfish Hodge during your bar hopping days? Used to catch him in Mt. Clemens quite a bit. Also saw Neil Young at U of D, acoustic set around the same time.
  12. Looks like the K-Horn is not all the way in the corner due to the radiator being in the way? If that's true, you will not get the right sound out of the speaker. The K-Horns MUST be tight in the corners for best results. Another option would be to enclose the backs, then you can get by without being tightly sealed in the corners. Those crossovers need to be rebuilt or replaced also.
  13. mine has kept a steady reading. Have you written Bob Latino about this? He is really good at resolving problems promptly.
  14. no highs, no lows, must be Bose!
  15. I think Greg Roberts of Volti Audio did one about 10 years ago or so.
