  1. Thats a great combo. What the crossover look like. I think AL Added a Zobel to make it well behaved. Its in the cue for bold as we speak. My wife is pretty accepting but its become the 1speaker in, 1 speaker out rule :-).
  2. I really love the color thanks. Price reduced...
  3. I’ve used in my smaller cornscala and loved the results. But needed to go small. Bob offers a similar heresy but uses the middle of the two sizes of that’s faital horn. I assume it crosses around 1200hz. The big horn can be crossed as low as 500hz but I wanted to go with Faital loading recommendation of 800hz bighorn big sound.
  4. Dave Harris was kind eneough to cut new baffles for me. Going to be a 2 way cornscala with the large Faital horn. Eminence 12LFA giant killer. Faitail lth142 Fairal HF140 ALK AP13-800 specific the the K22/24 12LFA. Should be fun.
  5. From my experience, the JJ KT88 is king of the hill for bass. Its likely my fav KT88/6500 variant. If wanting a good all around... the Tungsol 6550. In general Ive been less than impressed with the GL... price vs performance isn't there for me.
  6. Wife wants the living room speakers smaller. 30" tall 20" wide. Sporting Eminence 15" woofer... similar to the K43. Large Faital horn and matching HF140 driver. Custom AP12-800 designed by ALK and made be me. This speaker simply rocks! Everything you want a cornscala to do but better and smaller. Justin 323-868-9722 Irvine CA area.
  7. Harmon Kardon KH Tube Receiver Model TA224 Fully restored. Started with an exceptionally clean unit. 100% working. 6V6 push pull amplifier with 15watts RMS Tuner calibrated, fully functional Fully recapped New power supply Can Caps New Tubes New custom wood case made to mimic 1950's Mcintosh case. Casework in Matte Black lacquer. Custom Spade to Banna adapters included Justin 323-868-9722 $600
  8. Many are out of area to me. Shipping is a $350-500 expense. That being said, Arcebest does a great job moving stuff and get it there safely.
  9. Price drop to 3k firm. First come first serve 😉
  10. I used as a 2 way cornscala. Eminence 15c and the fiatal lth142 horn. That said. It’s a great 2way crossover for a Cornwall, belle or la Scala. Or 1/2 of the ap12 es5800 crossover from alk. The 600hz is great is you can use a k500/k600 in Cornwall’s with the k55 mid range. Just order the es5800 and you have likely the best crossover possible... at least my idea of a good time.
  11. The m2380 is a job 2380 clone. It’s a well known and well regarded horn. Buy the m2380. Likely a better horn. The 2380 can be crossed at 500hz. Pair it with a de85 or de750 if it wjll fit and you’re set. I’ve used this combo myself.
  12. for my 2 cents. Given you have such a well executed 3way... Id strongly suggest building and keeping your old speakers... they dont build them like that very often. Re 2way horns The interaction between driver and horn should be considered. Most drivers that go to 400hz or lower cant play 60 18K as well the one exception might be the Faital HF200? The Eliptrac 400 would be my 1st choice. Works amazingly well and can play very low. Paired with a AP12-500 and you have a crazy good speaker. The Faital LTH142 would be my next choice. Crazzy good... no sanding and gluing required. Crites has a crossover for this or ALK AP12-800 or ES700 (I just bought a ES700 for this purpose.) Only takes 1.4" drivers by the HF140 is incredibly good. If going Eminence 15C + Faital LTH142 you van build a much smaller cab. Dave cut for me baffles that are 30"x20"wide for this horn. It hits just as hard as my cornscalas and actually goes deeper. Hope this helps
  13. Just got a pair of ALK AP12-600s but decided to go ESN. Brand new. Installed but never played, perfect condition. $380 shipped. Paypal as gift or pay the 3.5% Justin 323-868-9722
  14. Bump. Few interested parties but no-one able to make it work yet.
  15. Super kind words... thank you. I will say. I started out on this forum knowing next to very little. This forum st large, Dave Harris and ALK were instrumental... That and my wife being incredibly tolerant :-). She has come to accept that speakers are made, used and sold... Its a lot of the fun in it for me. Building 3-4 pair a year you get to try some stuff and learn a thing or two.
