  1. Yes that's true , so only fair to let you have your say. Ill not plunge us into the abyss with any further inflammatory statements. Yes ill absolutely update on the altecs Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk
  2. I think the roof rack idea might see a greater power direct a bolt of lightning in my direction , so current plans are to see if gpa would send me a recone kit so i can have the job done here. Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk
  3. ^ can of worms much :0 I think as a newcomer here I'd rather talk about loudspeakers than politics. Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk
  4. On the +ve . Bill from great plains says he can recone for $145.00 Not sure if this is a new price across the board for 604's or because mine is an iconic 704-8a but I'm happy enough with that. Probably get both done so they're equally fresh in that case. Sent from my Lenovo TAB 2 A10-70F using Tapatalk
  5. well it seems like the consensus is that the cone has crossed rainbow bridge anywaaaaay :s
  6. Thanks for the replies people. Wow thats a bunch cheaper than id imagined. Even factoring in insured shipping from the u.k it may be worth my while. You're probably not missing much avoiding f.b , it allows silly points of view to gather momentum at a scary pace ( like ' you're a transphobic cissexist if you DON'T prefer sex with women who have penises '.... Wait, what ?!? ) Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk
  7. i did wonder if it would shrink back to normal. im getting told reconing isn't as injurious to the wallet as a new driver ( as one might hope )
  8. Ok sorry for the confusingly written original posts. My descriptive ability has clearly been damaged by Facebook , where people only communicate in memes. As above , im appealing for help with a water damaged cone ( i know , why didn't i just say that ?!?)
  9. Not feeling at my most composed or coherent right now , sorry. To explain. The stored drivers ended up with a leaking pipe dripping onto them. You can see the cone is wet and deformed. Im seeking best practice advice to dry it out and i guess an assessment of how likely it is that it'll function correctly afterwards. Thanks
  10. In all sense of the word. ( read this in the voice of lemony snicket , narrator of 'a series of unfortunate events' . might help with empathy ?) O.k so you can see from the meme i have created, to highlight my stupidity and lack of situational awareness, that i have made an ill advised technical modification to a once perfectly decent iconic model 704-8a. I probably deserve to be publicly thrashed with bamboo canes by kendo masters rather than recieve any help. But for those that see fit , what would you do to dry the cone and hopefully help it regain its shape? Wish id modge podged them prior to putting in storage. I am le sigh
  11. Nor me , as a johnny come lately. would be a tremendous shame if interpersonal frictions stopped the sharing of knowledge :S Apologies if that comes across as a little self serving, given i've expressed an interest in building a set of these. #peace
  12. Just out of curiosity , what is it about the c15w spec wise that isn't available in other drivers ? Or is it just a case that they hit on something magical with their formula for it? Is the evm15l still in production? Evm12 seems available here ( europe ) but only crusty looking used p.a 15l's :s Sent from my LG-H930 using Tapatalk
  13. For sure , decent c15w would be unobtanium here. I've a vague feeling another poster said in another thread that the kappa 15c didn't model well In the classic. I need to brush up on horn response I think. Got a mini DSP nano to play with once I've decided what I'm doing Sent from my Lenovo TAB 2 A10-70F using Tapatalk
  14. Amazing thread. Had been curious about this cabinet for a while so I'm super grateful for ajsons and the other contributor's for demistifying those sketchy old plans. Although I'm sure twin evm12ls would be pretty spectacular, that runs me about £1000.00 in the u.k. Any other driver recommendations? Wondering if the eminence kappa 15c that Claude recommends for his quarter pie is suitable * Or for a few dollars more -> http://www.precision-devices.com/Product-Details/PD153ER ? Thanks (* That's another cab I'm wanting to try out if it'll fit well enough in my small room ) Sent from my Lenovo TAB 2 A10-70F using Tapatalk
  15. Are you intending to build one? Must be curious after working on the drawings The Dean appealed to me as it's quite a handsome cabinet , fitting neatly into corners without intruding too far out into the room. But as stated , I'm less than confident about my cabinetry skills for that one. Seems hard to go wrong with the q.pie given its straightforward design and a helpful forum including the designer himself and other builders. Build cost looks very reasonable too.
