  1. There was some splintering. With finishing no one would have ever been the wiser. Dave decided to use as the double instead. I’ve been working on stiffening the baffle. Sometime when I feel like going next level I’ll dado the side panels to hold the baffle in place and not use cleats.
  2. Something new, something blue. Dave cut me 4 3/4" baffles. 2 of them were less than perfect so we doubled them up. The grills with be held with neo magnets I got from parts express. The back panels have 12 1/4"-20 for the edges. and 4 1/4"-20 for the center braces. This is the 1st time Ive used the Faital LTH142 and Faital STH100. Drivers will be Eminence Kappa 15C, Faital HF140, and the 1" HF driver is up in the air. Crossover is a CSW450 Im posting my project, because I miss the days more on this forum built and modified...
  3. Ive owned both. The Sig is a super worth while upgrade... The addition of the heavier motor housing and stiffer chassis. The bigger question should be if you should go gimble or unipivoit.
  4. Bump. Still for sale.
  5. I’ve used both and can’t hear any differences. Get whichever is less expensive.
  6. Hey guess hope I didn’t confuse anyone. The 12LFA can be used if building your own Jubs or Heresy style but you’ll need to make adjustments. My adjustments are done using either a ALk universal or the custom 2way Alk designed for me. Re Sonics. It’s a solid performer with much deeper more taught bass. Like a k33 vs a kappa 15C. Dave Hairrs cut my baffles for my 2way diy heresy. I spoke without Bob Crites’ son about offering the same. I think they have a lot of projects but agreeed that it was a worth while idea. Move not done a ported 12”. Though not digging as deep. The sealed cab has no bass hump which is a good thing I think. On my cornscalas or late. The ports are 4” pvp pipe from Home Depot. The ports are easier to work with then building port shelf’s and what not. I then take a 1/2” round router to do a round over and have it blend into the baffle. Hope some of this helps.
  7. Sold I private label one of my amps. It’s a great partnership.
  8. Ah. They were going to get listed next week. They are called the figure 8. Its a scaled down version of Dave’s drift design. 8”woof rear ported. Goes to low 30s. 1” conical tratrix horn. Used the Dayton clone of the D220ti but has a polymide diaphragm. Whole speaker was sent to ALK for crossover design. 2nd order on LF, 3rd on Hf. Crossed at 800hz. ~92db efficient. They Image so well. As you can see. I’m awash in older projects again.
  9. 12LFA think of it like a better K24
  10. They are the Omens...I love Zu speakers. The DWs are great, super close to the Omens now... esp if you can do the cap upgrade for $100.
  11. Selling off my office rig. Not a current model but one of my favorites. 3watts with 6l6gcs as is, 5watts with KT88s. Incredibly quite... like headphone amp quite :-0. 8ohm for headphones and 300ohm for headphones. 8ohm speaker outs with cards binding posts. Hate to see it sit unused on a shelf. 1200obo Justin 323-868-9722

    Its the older eminence as I recall. Once other point of note. The crossover is a CSW 450. I used to make these under lic from ALK. Fully adjustable, crossed at 450. 2nd order on bass. Its like an AP12450 and a AP15-4500

    These were completely rebuilt. Man that was good. Dave's larger mid horn, elliptical tweeter and new 15C woofers. The cabs were rebuilt, dog house brace and the back was strengthened to allow the rear panel to sit flush. The casters were to make to party friendly. Love rebuilding them... just couldn't stay permanently.
  14. ALK makes an attenuator that's in series. Its a really nice unit... allows for a great deal of adjustability.
  15. The Encore is a headphone amp 1st but we discovered it works so well as a pre. The Juicy gear is true pre is every sense as are the NOS Valve pre. Id love to hear all three in the same rig. Id suspect the NOS Valves would be the winer, but the Encore could have honorable mention on multi use merit.
  16. Thanks JC. Glad you’re enjoying. The 1626 is a really magical sound.
  17. Daves thinking on the subject is bar none... way smarter than me... that said. I would suggest 2 simpler mods you might really like. 1st, bypass C1. Its for DC blocking... you don't need with anything modern. 2nd and more interesting... replacing the 50ohm resister in the PS with a C354 choke will go a long way to reducing the noise floor... likely to improve the bass too. You'd drill 2 holes and mount it up too. I think Dynakitparts even has pictures of this done. The ST35 was called the poor mans Macintosh for good reason. Its sonics are lovely. At 15watts, its likely more than enough power for your Cornwalls. Congrats!
  18. Ive owned a pair of chartwells and they were pretty amazing, needed a huge sub though. I do suggest audiogon or ebay. Your price is for mint condition...
  19. I haven't received yet, Ill get it on the bench and will find the culprit. Im my experience... 150+ amps or so, less than 10 have every had anything actually wrong with the amp... tubes tend to be the culprit. Either way Ill have her back to singing ASAP.
  20. Received some great parts from a friend. Selling the JBL 2327 1" to 2" adapters. Asking $80. 
 Also have the JBL 2425J 1" 16ohm drivers 800hz to 20Khz Works perfectly. Will do $400 for the pair or Train Faital HF140 or HF200 Thanks
