    CDs, when will they be obsolete?

    I would like to hear something better than CD quality sound available for downloading, not to say there is not already and i just dont know about it. Is it me or does anybody else prefer the sound of clean vinyl over CD's, maybe just my Sony ES just getting worn out. Music with good sound seems harder and harder to find like they forgot or just don't care anymore about quality. Still sticking with 8-track CD's until something else blows me away.

    Can anyone shed light on this speaker?

    LOL you gotta admit that is a crazy design but sometimes that's what it takes, if its music to your ears thats all that matters. Like dad always says, even ugly chicks need some loving.

    adcom gfa-5500

    Mine was purchased new after much shopping around, it was the best sound for the money that i could find. What attracted me was the attention to details throughout, there were lows like i never heard before and very life-like sound that attracted me. There were many other amps i liked better but were out or way out of my budget, some recordings do sound somewhat on the bright side but i feel the positives far outweigh the negatives. Be sure to listen before purchase to determine if this is the right sound for you and your choice of speakers.

    Thoughts on this tube amp?

    I was looking through some of those myself but it looks too good to be true.
  7. Cornwall's and Chorus 2's are great speakers but if you have the room get some LaScala's, they image and sound much better though you will probably need a subwoofer to fill in the lows they are incapable of producing.

    Maybe some muffler strapping would enhance the custom tweeter look.
  9. Make sure there is power at the motor. If not find out where the problem is (fuse etc...) if yes check the motor and connections. Good power & connections probably a faulty motor.

    Forte II vs. Industrial LaScalas

    While Forte is a great speaker (every week i get together with friends and party to the Forte sound ) the La Scalas are a much better sounding speaker all around in my opinion. Pinpoint soundstage, mids to make you drool, and highs from the gods. Only missing is the lows that can be filled by any decent sub.

    info that needs to be shared

    Good Luck, i had many issues with my new 2004 Ford Focus and spent days at dealerships only to get blown off by Ford's independant survey team who not only would not go for a drive to see and feel the problems with the car, after i received a letter from i think from the CEO of Ford Motor Company that there was no issue to resolve and pretty much "piss off"though not in those words. I will look through my paperwork and find it if i can and post it. The steering wheel shakes at most speeds and the passenger seat vibrates to the same tune. Its still there after new tires and 70,000 miles. The door's do not open on hot sunny days, the latch has been looked at and adjusted and lubricated to no prevail. (still there too)! Loud clunk when backing up on an incline, on the test drive with the assistant shop manager i showed the noise to the man, returned to shop and was told i was hot rodding the motor to make the noise. Now anybody knows when you are starting out on an incline you need to give it some gas or you will stall and need to stop or roll back into the car behind you. Drivers seat right side is broken and needs to be replaced eventually, this happened after one year and still has not collapsed yet i just drive with the "mean lean" My big feet get stuck behind the vent to the right of my gas petal, already caused one small accident. Pros of the Focus handling, fuel economy, peppy,always starts.
  15. Sounds like another quality minded Mopar incident.

    Crossover capacitors

    I can use some opinions on crossover capacitors to compliment my squawker, Using AL3 crossovers on La Scala's
  17. You can always downshift to first gear, it wont stop you but i will slow you down. My Focus has a issue also, there is a vent just to the right of the gas petal that my size 12's get hung up on every so often. Ford says there is nothing wrong with the car even after i showed them what was happening. No wonder U.S. car companies are going down the tubes, they just dont care about the people who keep them in business.

    Crossover capacitors

    Thanks for the replies, i will take everything mentioned here into consideration. Anybody around Chicagoland have a set of these horns hooked up for me to audition ?

    Crossover capacitors

    Right now the crossovers have the Crites updates installed but i figured there may be something that would be slightly better without changing the pinpoint soundstage and awesome dynamics of the overall sound that i have become accustomed to.
  20. Very nice craftsmanship, you should be proud.

    Anyone successfully slot port Lascala ?

    Maybe i will try the rear port setup and see how it goes, i guess the woofer will need to be removed and a hole will need to be cut into the top of the cabinet from what i see correct ? Would there be a better choice of woofers for the ported cabinet or is the stock K-33 sufficient ? If i need to enter the cabinet anyways i figured to ask beforehand.

    Standard AL3 crossover capacitor values

    Thank you for the schematic Bob.
  24. Looking to replace my aging caps in my Lascala's and was hoping somebody here may have the answer, it looks as if they may have been replaced previously and want to be sure i get the right parts for the job.
