  1. Well, I never heard back. I guess they must be gone and he's just too lazy to bother to delete his ad or respond to people. Some people are real schmucks. Guess the search goes on.
  2. I messaged the seller. Hopefully I hear back. It looks like he has both the original FH-1 cabs, and the Black Widow ones. I'm assuming the Black Widows would outperform the earlier versions? -Jon
  3. Hi Chris, I have Hornresp, but it baffles me completely..lol. As far as drivers, all the Peavey cabs are loaded with stock drivers. Sorry, I forgot to mention that. I was just planning on sticking with the stock ones, as I imagine they'd give the best results. -Jon
  4. Hello, I have an opportunity to pick up as many Peavey Project series cabs as I can handle for $50 a cab. Trying to decide if it would be a good purchase or not. I already have a set of MF1-X horns, so I would just need the midbass cabs (forget the model) and the FH-1 LF cabs. I already have a Tuba HT for sub duty. Trying to decide if it's something I should pursue. My current setup: ULF: Bill Fitzmaurice Tuba HT (25 Hz to 60 Hz) LF: Acoustic 301 W-Bin with Cerwin Vega 18" (60 Hz to 125 Hz) MF: 2x12 Electro-Voice TL cabs with EVM-12L Series II (125 Hz to 1.8 KHz) HF: MF1-X (above 1.8KHz) I'm using a Driverack PA for the mains, and a Rane AC22 for the Tuba HT. Quad amplified. The question is whether it would be an upgrade over what I already have. On one hand, I could see a potential synergy with a matching system. On the other hand, with a lot of careful tweaking, I've actually managed to get this system sounding surprisingly good. Those EV cabs are definitely very solid beasts. They're 1 1/4" solid birch plywood with extensive bracing, fiberglass filled, and each driver has it's own internal subenclosure. I'd hate to put the Peaveys in and feel like they're a downgrade. Concerning the Acoustic 301s, I've been told ideally they should be crossed over higher. However, if I run them up too much higher, they get rather boomy in this room. Would the Peavey FH-1s be better in that regard? The seller also has FH-2s available for $50 each, which I imagine would be quite superior, however they're also huge! I don't know if I could accommodate them, much less get them up the stairs to the theater room myself. So, if you were in my shoes, what would you do? On one side, it's probably the cheapest I'll be able to find this stuff. On the other, I don't want to get stuck with something lousy that I can't get rid of. It seems like these cabs are darn near worthless on the used market.
  5. If anyone wants these things for free, they can have them. Otherwise I'm junking the innards and burning the cabs. Going with JBLs and I have no use for this junk anymore.
  6. Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I can try to get some pictures tomorrow. I suspect shipping something so large over such a distance will be quite expensive.
  7. EDIT: Now FREE! Get them out of here before I burn them! --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Figured I'd give these a shot here. I'm selling a set of Peavey MF1-X horns. Both work fine, they're just too big for my application. Both have original 22A drivers. Decided to go a different direction. If I can get $100, that would be great. I'm taking a loss, but just want to free up some space. I live in New Ringgold, PA 17960. I could do a porch pickup, and have them hooked up to a little class D amp to demo. More than enough power to show these guys off. If anyone's interested, I can get pictures up. Any questions, let me know. Thanks, Jon
  8. Hallcon83, If you're just looking for the bottom half on a budget, something to keep an eye out for is a set of Peavey FH-1s. They're a bit wider than the LaScalas, but have a longer horn and lower bass extension as a result. Plus, they can be found cheap. I wouldn't pay more than $100-200 for a pair. I just bought a pair of SP1s (all in one unit with FH-1 bass and MF1-X horn) for $10, but they have issues, functionally and cosmetically. So, I've got a project.
  9. Hi Glens, Here's the thread about the current setup, though I have now swapped out the Heresies for a set of Pioneer PM-40s taken from an incomplete set of CSR-700s. It helped to lower the profile, but I'm not sure I like the sound as much as the Heresies. -Jon
  10. Hello again, I've come across a pair of JBL 3678 THX Theater speakers for $800, and wanted to see what you guys think? I like their potentially smaller size (relative to my huge stacks) but am unfamiliar with these speakers. What little I've been able to find leads me to believe they'd be more than adequate for my space. I've always been impressed with JBL's larger speakers, and am hoping these will be the same. I also have a set of 8330s I could use for surrounds. What do these speakers sound like? I have a Tuba HT to take care of the real deep bass, so if these are good to 60 Hz or so, that's fine. How's the top end? Also, is $800 a fair price for these? They are within driving range, so that is convenient for me. Thanks a lot, Jon
  11. Hi Jason, It does have bracing. The construction photo was just taken before it was added. If you look at the pic with it completed (under the afghan) you can see the brace at the mouth. It also has another set further in. -Jon
  12. I forgot to post this, but everything is in place properly now. As you can see, the Heresies just clear the sloping wall. So, I think the first thing is to get ahold of a set of HF horns and drivers. I'm thinking something that can crossover around 1200 Hz with a 24 db/octave butterworth filter. Hoping to be around $400 or less for the set. I'm becoming more aware of what Dave A said. Things just aren't really jiving at the moment. While it does get louder than all get out, the sound isn't what I'd call ideal. The Acoustic 301 LF cabs are muddy and the EV cabs are too wide for this room so the dispersion is odd. I'm thinking it may indeed be best to start over. Just not really sure where to begin. 😵 Any recommendations would definitely be appreciated. It's tempting to want to just go with a single box solution plus the Tuba and call it a day. I'm sure there's plenty of options out there. Coytee, I'm curious to know more about the K-510 and K-69. Are they from one an all in one PA speaker? If so, are they hard to find?
  13. Hi Coytee, Yeah, there's definitely a lot going on! It looks like it would sound horrendous, but believe it or not it actually sounds rather good. It just looks hideous..lol. With the Rane crossover, everything is running it it's optimal range. I appreciate you offering to loan me the K-510 and K69. Funny you mention IH red. We've had a 1955 Farmall Cub here on the farm for many years. One issue I'm becoming increasingly aware of is an occasional prominence of the lower midrange. Dialing in the EV cabs is really tricky. Too much and they seem to take off around 600-700 Hz. Too lean and it sounds like a smile curve eq. I guess it's like anything, you have to have it dialed in just right. I'm wondering if the dispersion of a 2x12 is better suited to a long throw application vs. short. If that's the case, a horn may be a better match. So far, I've gotten the best sound by not towing the EV cabs in as much as the Heresies. Today's job is to reposition everything so I can get the speakers closer to the front wall and get the equipment out where I can see it. Then I'll dial everything in again and go from there.
  14. That's a 12" woofer in a compression chamber, kind of like the Peavey MB-1, just a bit smaller horn.
