    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. 

    -Tom

     

    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.


  2. 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.


  3. 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.

  4. 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.


  7. 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.


  9. 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.

    we never had these problems ,  the trucks that went up and down our streets , and the planes above  in the skies  ,  all day long   ,  drowned any of that noise-

     

    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.
