  1. Carl... do your have a plastic horn? II still have the aluminum one and the drivers. I'm thinking of making a small smith to try with the drivers as tweeters. The only has a 3/4 inch throat, so they will pretty much need a custom horn or putty in a 1 inch throat horn. 🙄 Bruce

    Covid19 redux

    Brazil is really a mess https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/05/sounds-warning-coronavirus-peak-live-updates-200526002031517.html
  3. That is an attenuator and not a delay. Most folks on here who do active crossovers delays and eq are using digital crossovers. Again, most are using them with systems that have horn loaded bass, which means they delay the high end, not the low end. While not super expensive (you are already using separate amps for the woofer and the compression driver), you go with a digital crossover and you can do eq, phase correction and time alignment. It's like night and day. @Chris A can point you in the right direction. Bruce
  4. If the Klipsch labels with the serial numbers are no longer on the backs, the serial number should be stamped on the back on the edge of the plywood. The sn will give you the date of manufacture, and the crossover model (original, not after market) will narrow down what you have. Welcome to the forums! Bruce
  5. While you are using an active crossover, to be better optimized, the woofer output should be delayed to match the tweeter at the crossover frequency. There will be a smearing as both components play back the same frequencies at different times. The original horn, being shorter wouldn't be as noticeable, but the time differences become more obvious as the frequency goes up.
  6. The late DJK did that very thing. There was a post a long time ago about Mr. Paul saying the k-400 didn't actually need to be as long as he designed it, too. Bruce
  7. Excellent way to go. A rattle can of satin black would work wonders. Those look like a lacquer, so you could smoother out what is there with a lacquer thinner and (insert your choice here... steel wool, scotch brite pad, etc.). If the scrtches aren't into the wood, no sanding is really necessary.
  8. Did you put the car under the tv or move the Belle inside?
  9. The Cobraflex was used in the University Classic. I believe it has a reasonably low cutoff, too. I have the sheet for them on my pc, but it's not handy.

    Do you have some in for Bill Gates? Never mind, you don't need to answer that.

    Covid19 redux

    Hamilton Co., 512 cases and 14 deaths, but the population is a lot higher than Giles. I'm right over the border in Georgia and I am in and out of two counties, Catoosa (97 cases), and Walker (95 cases) with no deaths. Wife has become a little worried since the cases at our jobs, so we got tested this a.m., but won't know for a few days.

    BS, Microsoft has less than 50% of the server market. 38% is linux, and while I don't like a lot of things about Apple, it was based on linux flavors, linux being a Unix look alike.

    Jokes?

    That could be a stretch...

    Jokes?

    Yes, very cruel. Probably out in one of the rural provinces. If most of Americans actually saw the meat they love being processed, they would become vegetarians.

    A lot of people in the Philippines like dog, too, although it isn't legal.

    Note to Self ...

    In the far distant past, I worked a a TV station in central Illinois. The assinstant chief engineer would go into the workshop and take a huge cap out of the box and use clip leads to connect the cap to the 115 vac. It would quickly charge, and he would put it back in the box.Later, the chief would come in and grab the box, open the top, where the solder tabs were located... and slide it out onto his palm. BAM!! You just know that had to hurt.

    So the Lancet used info across multiple continents (96 thousand plus people, over 14 thousand who were treated with HQ), and made adjustments for different risk factors, and come up with the results. I understand you can lie with stats. Here is the Lancet article on their data crunching: https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)31180-6/fulltext

    You think the Lancet is making a politics play?

    Some of you don't like CNN, but this is interesting. https://www.cnn.com/2020/05/22/health/us-coronavirus-friday/index.html
  22. Brother in law used pickled okra in his (a little cut in the okra to hang on the side of the glass). Those were really good.

    Covid19 redux

    It's a group home, with eight clients, dementia, developmental or physical disabilities. Before the lockdown, the clients would come and be in our center during the day, for activities and care and to be with other friends. My wife was supervisor over a room with mostly dementia related clients. She's had about five pass away since she stated working here 8 years ago. Two had cancer, most simply got old and due to their physical or intellectual disability, their bodies finally gave out. It's rough. I don't know how hospice folks do it.

    I haven't talked with them, but I know them. Seven folks where I work have tested positive. Two are staff and five are clients.
  25. We have six of the ALtec 31a horns hanging from the ceiling and a warehouse space at work. I'm trying to get them before the disappear to a landfill. They aren't being used at all and have been there for years. The pic I got off the web, but the horns are about 20 up...
