  1. Thanks for all the positive comments. Yes Google sent me here, i may have searched cheap homes or cheap safe homes. Something along those lines anyways. Living with no hot water heater so pots and pans on the stove for everything and some critter chewed a big hole in the roof but their climbing tree has been removed at least. Thing will hopefully be repaired and replaced as time and cash are available. Enjoying no limits in volume here, back to the music for now.

  2. Googled cheap places to live and Fort Wayne Indiana popped up, rolled the dice and bought a home there. Just got stuff situated with internet and music hooked up yesterday & today, enjoying some tunes and figured i would stop in. Household dynamics changed since mom died and i had to get out for my sanity. Crazy moving to a place i have never been to and hours from friends and family but feels good so far. Plenty of tinkering to do on this 100 year old home will keep me busy.

    Coytee, Good job finding those photos!


    Jason, that is the problem. The mouth braces are NOT set back. I suppose one could do some surgery, but who is going to do that a new pair of cabinets. 



    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.

    So what? I wasn't.  Have you ever actually heard one or own one?  I don't understand people that have to attempt to throw negative light on something without data or experience.  I am not affected when people like you do these types of things, because I really don't care what you think, but there are people that may take that type of negative BS to heart, so maybe a little more thinking is in order before you post things.  


    Obsolete design for a reason.


    You are welcome to take it negatively if you want but figured actual customers may prefer facts.

    And what does that have to do with the performance of the sub?  


    Zero benefits of an actual horn for one and its a dual reflex bandpass design if you were wondering.

  9. 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.

    Jason ---what are you repairing with the shoe goo--------will it glue on , seal on-------------and wouldn't glue be just as good  -


    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.

  11. 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.
