  1. K-1012 If the woofer is past repair and you cannot locate a used one you would be much better off just replacing it with a new sub.
  2. 10 or double 8 with the mains, the wider the better.
  3. You could make individuals for each mouth opening, just hot glue a small piece of wood in each corner to attach each section. Personally i find front mounted grilles to be an afterthought.
  4. If the horn mouth braces are set back from the cabinet itself just make a frame 1/4 to 3/16 smaller than the opening ( depending on grille cloth type ) and mount to the braces. As for the top just miter a frame the same width as the bass bin and attach it behind the horn, mount your new grille to that.
  5. Looks good and the KG's are great for the size, just add a little sub to reach full potential. Wax is a great looking finish with minor upkeep. To fill those little seams and gaps epoxy does the trick (before waxing of course), just sand after application Enjoy those great looking speakers.
  6. If i was buying a brand new Chrysler with Corinthian leather interior and found out it was just cheap vinyl fabric after my purchase it would be disappointing.
  7. Obsolete design for a reason. You are welcome to take it negatively if you want but figured actual customers may prefer facts.
  8. Zero benefits of an actual horn for one and its a dual reflex bandpass design if you were wondering.
  9. Advertised as a horn and later called a ported horn and is neither. This is wrong any way you spin it.
  10. False advertisement, would not touch it with a 10 foot pole.
  11. Many here have audio addiction to some extent including myself. Have to admit drugs and alcohol can make music sound more enjoyable but the way i go about avoiding unneeded purchases normally is to only buy something after hearing something that sounds better than one of my personal components but even then could just be the room itself working better in some fashion. Don't fall too far down the well to a point you cannot crawl back out.
  12. These are as good as it gets, price is minimum considering.
  13. As long as the repair is along the seam and not on the surround shoe goo is an acceptable long lasting repair. If the rubber surround has hardened and no longer flexible it will need to be replaced with a new one.
  14. I wonder what brand of wire would work best with those ?
  15. These work good for replacements, minor modification such as drilling terminal holes and cup a bit larger.
  16. Burn or download a 20 Hz frequency track and repeat. Get the woofer cone moving 3/16" or so and play it overnight or when you're out, if its too much at night turn it down a bit. That will speed things up and the frequency is inaudible. I know they are new but an air leak check would be good reassurance.
  17. Dayton subs. They have a few models and configurations.
  18. 10" loaded Table Tuba.
  19. You won't notice any difference in sound between the Crites replacements and K-33.
  20. Best not to do that, if there is a short it can easily damage the amplifier.
  21. Disconnect the woofer and touch ends to a 9 volt battery and see if the cone moves.
  22. There was a CTA bus turnaround right across the street, it was always noisy. The Supra was a good car, similar to my 82 280 ZX in performance and fuel economy.
