  1. Bump and price drop. I gotta get these out of my house! $80 cash local pickup with cabinets Or $80 + shipping for drivers only, PayPal.
  2. I did some searching and couldn't find an answer to this. If it will work I would prefer to just use the K-77 horns. Currently I have K-77M tweeters on 1981 La Scalas.
  3. I bought this matched quad of JJ 6CA7 from a tube dealer about one year ago or less. I put them in my amp for 2 or 3 hours to verify that they worked and then put them up in my tube storage closet. I am thinning out some tubes and decided to sell these. $60 shipped in the continental USA. PayPal only. Thanks
  4. I decided to reinstall the drivers and replaced the wiring, I cannot ship them but can meet within a reasonable distance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvebImJ4A5s&feature=youtu.be
  5. I pulled these from my 1987 KG4s when I upgraded to the titanium tweeter diaphragms about 10 years ago. A couple of years later I sold the KG4s and have no use for these diaphragms. They were working fine when I pulled them and they test fine with a DVM. They have been stored in the plastic boxes since. I am selling them for $30 shipped in the continental US. PayPal only. Thanks!
  6. For sale, two ElectroVoice Wolverine ST12 speakers. Both have had the capacitor replaced with Dayton 3uF polypropylenes. Both are fully functional and have DCRs of 7.8 and 8.1 ohms. One has a potentiometer to adjust the tweeter level and the other has a switch. I made a youtube video with them hooked up to my tube amp/turntable with no cabinets. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4zaT_9LoUU I have cabinets for them but they are too large and heavy to ship, so I am selling the drivers only. For local pickup the buyer can take the cabinets also. They are located in central Alabama. I have more pix I can send. $200 shipped in the continental USA, price is firm. PayPal only.
  7. I remember seeing a post from Al K a long time ago where it was recommended to change the 2uf output capacitor in the AA crossover tweeter output to 6uf and disconnect the zener diodes. Has anyone tried this capacitor change? If so what effect did it have? Thanks.
  8. Without seeing a schematic that is a little difficult to answer. You may find that some tube brands will have more of an effect in one area than another. The preamp you have will benefit from having good quality tubes in either position. Some people think that a tube in a cathode follower position is not that important sonically, but it is. In general gain stage tubes are more susceptible to problems that non-gain stages, but again it is very circuit dependent. The only way to answer your question definitively is for you to experiment. I would pick one side and give it a go, then later swap the left and right to see the difference, if any.
  9. Very likely, he had those big bass bins but did have a habit of REALLY cranking and turning the bass up. He kept a supply of replacement drivers in stock. This is what he had for sale when I bought them. He drilled holes in the bottom and hung them upside down from the ceiling.
  10. I was able to slip my phone in there and get a pic.
  11. The suspense is killing me so I am opening it up, stay tuned....
  12. When i posted these pix I had already closed the dog houses. I did a re-wire and noticed the woofers, the one that was not marked on the back i did not have to remove to solder new wires on, so I didn't. The other I had to take out, and of course it is a replacement as indicated by the R on the magnet. It looks to me like someone did some work on the dust cap (see photo) maybe the voice coil was replaced?? This pic is of the K-43. I bought these from a skating rink (5 years ago) that went out of business and I know the guy replaced blown drivers from time to time. Considering the application I would have thought that they would be K-43 but who knows. This is going to bug the crap out of me until I open them up again. They are so heavy I have a very hard time flipping them over.
