  1. 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.

  2. 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. 

  3. I built these as my Cornscala replacements. These are the best Heresy/12" 2way Ive heard.

    12" eminence Pro woofer

    Faital Large format Eliptrac horn... its the same horn I use on my 2way cornscala and bob uses on his Cornscala D. 

    Faital 1.4" driver.

    Crossing conservatively at 800hz. 

    Custom ALK AP12-800 with values adjusted to the Eminence woofer... its not an off the shelf ALK AP12. I had Al measure this woofer a few years ago so the crossover is matched to the woofer. 

    Think off this as a small Cornscala. ~ 1/3rd the size. Bass is solid to 50hz and mid range to die for. 

    I have ~$2000 into these. Will consider reasonable offers.

  4. 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.

  5. 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. 


  6. 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.

  7. 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





  8. I have seen the benefits of the Loki. It’s not just an eq.  It has 2db of Gain if I recall. It gives some spin on the ball as they say, that’s a good thing. The ability to pull down or boost up arenas is super helpful.

  9. I own 2 of the Schiit Aegirs  super music. More relaxed than I expected.  Not the tightest bass but super musical.  One of the very best SS amps I’ve heard in a bit. 


    My chain is c2600. 2 Aegirs into my 2way Coenheresy speakers. 94db efficient. 


    Recommend whole heartily
