    Thanks for sharing and sorry to hear about your experience/loss...I won't delve into questions but age and chance of success also plays in to the equation of what Insurance companies want to be on the hook for and the same is true with Government-run programs in other countries.


    She was 70 and doctors said 50/50 % chance of a normal life after recovery.

    I am sure that's the case in quite a few situations, but electing folks who are up to the job of putting quality people in positions they know something about is going in the right direction...Keep in mind there are also millions of people who actually are helped by the government as well.

    Yep except we have no control of what happens inside a privately held company whose mission is to make a profit.


    I totally agree but wonder what circumstances that could occur? 


    Just lost my aunt last year who needed a heart pump, insurance would not cover it.


    Cost the family over a million but she died during surgery anyways.


    Just one example but it hit us hard.

  3. If you really need more bass and want to keep the La Scala's i suggest using your money on a parametric equalizer (PEQ), porting the cabinet will also help.

    Damit Jason!



    Wish i had better news for you.


    I have done much testing with many models (big, small & multiples of them) and have come to the conclusion i recommended to you and others.


    Save your $$$ and do it right the first time.

    What do you like about this over the 15" kit?


    The kit mentioned earlier or the Ultimax 15" kit ?


    The 15" Ultimax kit is fine.

    The HO kit if you could substitute the HF series driver is OK.


    I'm just not a fan of sealed subs unless you have a bunch of them.

    I have one but thats a tad past what I would want to do. Assemble/glue/screws lol.


    Any other ideas? I know my budget makes it a bit tough. 


    Ultimax kit


    The Kits only include driver & cabinet. You will need to buy a terminal cup, screws, stuffing and wire to complete the basic build.


    I mention a terminal cup because i don't recommend installing the amplifier in the cabinet.

    Absolutely I would 👍


    Im tight on funds and space. I've been looking local used. But building something would be a great value and would be a chance to do some veneer work (before attempting veneer on lascals).


    Anything that I could put together (kit) under 300 you would recommend Jason?


    I can get close to $300. :D





    Add a 14" long 4" flared end port tube or use PVC pipe to save a bit.


    F3 will be about 23 Hz

    Why would it need to be ported?


    Not really the correct volume for the driver.


    If you want to build something do it right the first time so you don't waste money or valuable time.


    Happy to help if you need it.

    Never used it and really would depend where the hole was located.


    If its in a hidden area try clear caulk. If not hidden use wood filler of similar color.

  10. Nails are there to keep the panels together and aligned until the glue dries, pull it out if you can twisting with vice grips to minimize splintering of the wood finish.


    Cant see really but if the nail goes into the driver cabinet be sure to seal the hole to avoid leaks.

    Water?  What is this with water?  I don't get it.


    Its part of a recipe, try it without and its too tart and sweet.


    Club soda works too, just don't shake it in a shaker.

  12. In a 2 quart container or double for gallon.


    12 Oz water

    1/2 fifth Tequilla

    4 Oz Mango nectar

    Top of with Mr & Ms T's margarita mix

    Optional squeezed 1/2 orange

    Stir and serve over ice or shaker w-ice

    What will make a huge difference? You keep deflecting. I you want to build a back loaded horn (commonly known as a scoop horn) sure you can play the woofer out to 5KHz or to where ever it drops off. We have been discussing front loaded horns and there you are very much mistaken. I am going to drop out of this now and leave you to your own (BS).

    Port the DR 300 and you have your 50 Hz-2 kHz horn, no Bullshit there.

    well now you have abandoned the discussion of horn subs totally! The point I was trying to make was that it is not possible to build a horn that plays from 50 Hz. to 1000Hz. even if you could the disruptive cancellations and additions would generate a host of problems and would make a total mess of the speaker systems stage and image. The reason a CW sounds better than a Heresy it crosses lower to the larger mid horn, putting aside the better bass extension. This is the reason why when you look into state of the art full range horn systems they are a minimum of 5 or 6 way systems. Three octaves is considered the general max rule of thumb for a horns bandwidth.


    A Cornwall and Heresy use direct radiating woofers witch is the weak point of the design, of course it will make a huge difference.


    I call bullshit that you can't have a horn that plays from 50Hz to even 2kHz, there is no reason it cannot be done.


    I'm out for the weekend, be back soon. Enjoy.

    it is well established that a sub should be cross below 100Hz. otherwise you will suffer localization issues.  You are totally missing the point of crossing the sub horn to the mid horn lower is better while higher is not. For rough PA work I can see why it would be attractive to have a crossover at say 600 Hz. or 700 Hz. to build a reasonably compact two way, but not at all for hifi applications. As I have said the market place does not see this your way only with direct radiators does this approach make physical sense. If you think I am wrong then build a horn system along the lines of what you propose and you will I hope better understand the issues that I am describing.


    The marketplace wants small compact systems but most who owned horns will never want to go back. As far as building goes its no longer in the cards for me, just answering questions to the best of my knowledge.

    can you show me a bass horn with the same low end response and a higher roll off? I wont be holding my breath while you search. I have looked for years and never found one. This (the Beck California) is so far as I am aware of has better bandwidth than a Jub.


    Low end should be crossed over to a subwoofer as far as I'm concerned if you want to hear all of your recorded content.


    Any of the BFM DR series will get you there. Porting the cabinets can get you by if a sub is out of the question.

  17. 3 minutes ago, moray james said:

    a higher crossover point will result in a host of bad interactions between the bass horn and the mid if what you suggest was a plan you would see speakers built that way and we don't. It is not a good idea. Besides it is not possible for a horn to have such range it is not possible it does not work.


    It is possible and has been done already.


    Manufactures just wont invest in the extra steps it takes.
