  1. Thats a great sounding horn. I have not heard it with that driver. I am currently using the EV dh1a, the Fatail pro hf200 has been my favorite. I have crossed at both 500 and 600 hz and couldn't tell much difference. If you want to go 3 way and full active, there are a couple reasonable active crossovers out there. I am running the cast frame woofers from Bob Crites in my Belle clones. To be honest, i would go for a good sub like the TT low profile, instead of the bass mod. I think in the end you will find your path rewarding. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  2. My buddy has one and loves it. I have the 1019 and its a solid table. Find a reputable tech and have them clean it and lube it and it will last a long time. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  3. Morning gang, its been awhile, I've been a bit of hermit around here. Thought I would check in and say hi, see how everyone has been doing. We have been pretty busy around here, camping season appears to be in full swing, soccer is done, haven't had much time to even listen to music. Big Stew, sorry about your friend. Well time to hit the ground running, paper to write, graduation party, bachelor/bachelorette party tonight, then tomorrow is my sons bday party.
  4. I think Cubans are over rated, give me a good hand made maduro and ill be fine. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  5. Sad news indeed, I wasn't a huge fan, but have respect for great musicians. There seems to be a lot gone from that genre/era.
  6. Depends on location, If a mint pair in walnut with cane grills for $2000.00, I would jump on them.
  7. The wife asked when we refinish the living room, if we could replace the Cornwalls with something smaller. She didn't state if they needed to shorter, narrower, or both. I gave her two options, Belles or Forte IIIs. Glad to see your sale pending, if the distance was between us, I would stop over and go shopping.
  8. Is it possible to run these with a passive pre or is there a need for a pre amp?
  9. Good, set her up witb 3 watts, give them a reason to change that rule. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  10. Check out the last post.
  11. There going to be two different sounds. If it were me, i would have a clean and check done on the Kenwood and use it while the Sherwood is being restored to its fullest. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  12. What are your experiences with either of the two with other speakers? Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  13. Steve sorry to hear about your dad, 91 is a good long life. Cheers to him and may he rest in peace. Sent from my SM-N920P using Tapatalk
  14. Yes, but I will be honest with you, the mounting flange is not perfect and I had to re drill some of the bolt holes. However I was able to get them to mount to the drivers, with a little bit of work.
  15. I was thinking JBL 2360 or 2365. I have seen another company do this exact thing, but swap out the diaphragms with Beryllium.
