  1. Ah....no You don't know the power of the dark side
  2. I thought you were concerned you would have to change your anti-aliasing filters or your DAC couldn't do 48kHz. Carry on.....
  3. Congrats. On both speakers and wife. Both keepers. Welcome to the forum. In your picture is the tophat not sitting correctly? On mine the collar sits over and in front of the bass bin front panel. And yes it looks to be walnut and if 1976 probably oiled finish.
  4. Good catch, I did not notice that. Ya forget those.
  5. Oops, my bad. Yes I hope it is wired correctly. You could test it, when no one is hooked up to it of course Probably on GFI also I suppose.
  6. I love this picture...Ground which is never supposed to have any current is capable of what? 1000 amps? And to top it off it is probably going to an added ground rod that is 25 to 50 ohms from the bonded neutral wire. So a direct short of 115 volts to this ground will not trip a breaker.
  7. Can you squeeze 40mm diameter but still 50mm height in? Looks like Mouser has a105 C cap in that size to do as @avguytx suggested. https://www.mouser.com/ProductDetail/United-Chemi-Con/EKMH800VRT103MB50T?qs=sGAEpiMZZMtZ1n0r9vR22RSFeKT%2FCuZ6%2BTXe5TLUhmE%3D
  8. Reading the Manufacturer's data sheets is kind of amusing for the audio caps.....more musical(?) high tone quality(?)...something gets lost in Japanese to English I agree with @avguytx you really DON"T NEED audio grade in the P.S.
  9. The more I look the scarier it gets...I think I'd stay with Mouser, at least you'll have recourse if caps aren't up to snuff.
  10. So no other big caps up by the transformer?
  11. Found a post on some part website: https://theaudiocrafts.com/elna-10000uf-80v-andquot-for-audioandquot-lao-series states as of 2014 and after all Elna caps are made in China. These "look" legit:https://www.ebay.com/itm/1-5pcs-ELNA-10000UF-80V-FOR-AUDIO-35-50mm-Audio-Filter-Electrolytic-Capacitor/113837328449?hash=item1a813bc841:m:mDzf4G32cIjowNEFyz5uvQw
  12. Curiously Elna catalog does not show a LAO series 10,000uF 80 volt cap..Hmmm...old catalog?....or are the parts on Ebay counterfeit?
  13. "Snap in" is just to hold cap in place until soldered. Helps in manufacturing of wave soldered boards. Just make sure the lead spacing is correct. And the overall size will fit unto your boards of course you knew that. Audio grade vs. regular? Hmm.... If audio grade makes you warm and fuzzy go for it As to counterfeit parts from China....first of all they're probably all from China anyways. There are some Elna audio caps on the Ebay page that you linked, sure wish they would give the complete P/N
  14. Keep flipping. Ain't that what ur suppozed to do anywho?
  15. Starting to sound like a blown tweeter.
  16. When you switched the "tophats" (the midrange and tweeter horns) the problem stayed in the same speaker or moved with the tophat?
  17. I remember a post I made in an earlier thread you started: How's about a good old fashioned Jube bass bin? Very cool you took the plunge. If you need help with your cables let me know. A regular RCA with the end chopped off(1 signal+1 shield) mated to a EuroBlok will not be optimal.
  18. Y'all know horns are honky Couldn't help myself @Coytee
  19. You're talking about the bass bins, right. The Jubes are just such an improvement over the mighty Ks IMHO. I did not realize md5150's Jubes had the TADs, excellent score!
  20. An extra inductor pre crossover? Oh my whatever will we do.
  21. Mackinaw Island to East Lansing in two days? You da man.
  22. I better get on my horse I am invited?
