    EV 15wk - only horn loaded?

    I believe they were alnicos however, the seller claimed that there was no difference in the 15w and 15wk, so when he rebuilt them, he did so with 8 ohm voice coils. so I never ended up buying them. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    I have the plumbing wrapped up, just need to glue the vent/drain tube in. Supply is roughed in and I will wait until tonight to tie in to the live supply. that way I can shut the water off when it's not needed and let the glue dry overnight.

    New caps and break in

    So what are you waiting for? I agree, I always thought that the sonicaps sounded harsh, but was never sure as my hearing isn't the greatest for detail. When I redid my Heresy center, I just went with Dayton 1%, for the cost, would much rather use them over the sonic caps. Maybe someday for my Heresys in my 2 channel rig I will use something like the Audiocap PPTs. I have no issue with the stock drivers and settings in my Cornwalls and Heresys that I use in my living room, which is used primarily for any tv/movie watching. Just my 2 cents.

    EV 15wk - only horn loaded?

    Isn't it just a EV 15W but a 4 ohm version designed for the Klipschorn vs the 8 ohm version?

    Our new Home Theater build...Negatron 2

    I like this idea as well and agree on not blocking the windows/door. Congrats on the house.
  9. In regards to the horn Chris reference, I don't know if it was the driver I was using (EV DH1A) or the horn itself, but I wasn't that impressed. I later received a first gen K510 with a B&C driver and found it to have a huge difference in sound. If your interested in a set of the horns Chris mentioned, pm me and we can work something out.

    Home theater design/build thread reboot 2018

    I was able to pour some concrete this last weekend. went to a local rental house that rents a concrete trailer with a yard of concrete. only got 3/4 of a yard as I wasn't sure if my GMC Acadia could pull it. I bet I could have and wish I would have as I may have had enough to fill the whole thing in. oh well, just need about 8 bags to finish up.

    This is sad to hear, Dennis helped me score my first set of Khorns and I have ran with many of his recommendations. RIP Dennis.

    Need help on KlipschHorn

    If you want to try tubes, look for something from the Scott line, 222c, 299b, etc. or even Fisher. Even if professionally refurbished, these can be had for less than a grand.

    Not a bad idea, but none that I can think of. If someone has any reason to, let me know.
