    WTB HP640 Horn

    Some of those shipping charges are ridiculous. Its a big horn but $100 for shipping is nuts. Thanks to another forum member (absolve2525) I may have found one with a DH1A driver for a reasonable price and with reasonable shipping too.

    WTB HP640 Horn

    I have looked on EBay but did not factor in seller ignorance of the model number. Thanks for the tip, I will search a bit more.

    WTB HP640 Horn

    As the tittle says I am looking to purchase a single HP640 horn if anyone has one lying around they want to part with. I want to give it a try for my basement center channel.

    Class D

    Lots of good information here. I think I am going to try the TPA3255 and see how it sounds. I would ultimately like to put together several of these to run my HT but since I am using digital crossovers with time aligned horns I have diverse power needs. The TPA3255 seems like it would be great for the bass bins but power wise seems like overkill for mids and tweeters. Any good recommendations for lower power amps for those?

    YMMV I like that horn coupled with the EV DH1A driver.

    So Long Sew-Ups

    I still use tubular (sew up) tires in my triathon/TT bike. I put a bit of sealant in them and have never had a flat in a race. It would be a race ender if I did however. The wheels are super deep carbon fiber and not even available in clincher when I got them several years ago. That seems to be changing and there are lots of carbon clincher out there.

    Sorry, these are sold. Should have edited this a while ago to indicate that.

    New Honda Mower

    I have two Honda movers, both given to me neighbors who wanted new mowers but the Honda's just kept going and would break. No kidding. One is 20 years old, the other a bit newer. Both start on a single pull. I would kind of like a new electric mover, but the Honda's keep going.

    I really enjoy topics like this. DIY and knowing bargains in the used market are they way to own world class systems at more reasonable prices. Some assembly required.

    Looking for AVR Recommendations

    With Klipschorns I would strongly recommend the Pioneer Elite models with D3 amps. They sound marvelous with big horns.

    Painting EV HP640 horns

    The EV DH1A drivers I have are all 8 OHM (not sure if they come 16 OHM). To help them work with the passive crossover I movedthe squaker tap on the autoformer one step lower. I know I can make it more or less a one switch operation but I need to avoid the amp rack look I have in the basement system. I am hoping to get some time this summer to try my hand at building a small class D amp. BTW I am happy to paint your K402s, but once painted they can't be moved while the paint cures. I hear that can takes years.

    Painting EV HP640 horns

    Type A Crites. Not ideal for this I know but the results are surprisingly good.

    Painting EV HP640 horns

    Currently using them in a three way with passive crossovers and EQ to make it play together nicely. I would like to pick up another digital crossover and play with different crossover points and time alignment like I have in the basement. Need to keep it simple/easy to use for my better half however, we share the space (violins are hers).
