  1. I was wondering when someone would make some mumps. Did you notice a difference with your mumps? How did you make and install them? Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  2. Are the drivers all about the same depth? I have the EV DH1As, and was wondering if others are deeper insize. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  3. I picked up a Pioneer player for about a $100, as I recall. Mine also rips SACDs with a modified firmware. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  4. 1978 la scalas purchased new in 78 Kp3002s Used Lascalas Hips K402s Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  5. I have a loft about 8' behind the mlp. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  6. I am getting the 2 ddrc88ms for Dirac, and also to replace the Xilica...Chris Said they should be fine. I used the same models before when I had my JBLS and I never heard any difference when I moved to the Xilica. The 2x2 mehs will be for my surrounds...unless they sound as good as the current mehs, then they will move to the front. If they are moved to the front, I will be looking at building a pair of subs to go under them. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  7. I will be doing some upgrading over the next few months... Ordered: 2 Minidsp ddrc88ms 3 Pass ACA stereo/mono amps Diy projects: 2 2' x 2' MEHs modeled from the small side of my MEHs. These will use the same drivers, but the horn will be made of MDF. Selling: 4 Klipsch rp160Ms Musical Fidelity MX VYNL phono preamp Yamaha CXA 5100 preamp Xilica xp4080 crossover Some Icepower asx20btl, and asx125SE/BTL amp modules Dune HD PRO 4K PLUS media player Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  8. I thought my EV DH1As were massive! Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  9. I run Speakons...I use a 4 wire one for my 2 way active and they make a 8 wire one for a 4 way. They are super simple to hookup and disconnect, but a bit of a pain to wire as a 4 way. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  10. That is what I need for my MEHs. I wish I could get a flatpack still or some plans... I know where I can get some CNC work done if I had the plans. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  11. What sub Is that under the belle? Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  12. I will be more than happy with my MEHs. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  13. My friend built a shed in his back yard...I think it is 10x12, and he has a HT in it with 3 LaScalas. His setup sohnds great too. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  14. You might even be able to solder or braze the pins on....it would be like a name tag plate is. You might even be able to get some thin nameplares and use some kind of glue and just glue it to the plates...it might be easier if you can find name plates thin enough.

  15. Have you thought about gluing some pieces of metal like for earings...then just push through the grill and put little earing clasps on it to secure. By doing it this way you do not damage the grills other than 1 or 2 small holes. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  16. I am debating on absorption panels below 12' and poly diffuser panels 12' to 16' not sure if that will work or not. I think I still have 3 boxes of Roxul r60 2" left. Sent from my SM-G985F using Tapatalk
  17. I am loving them more everyday...best horn speakers I have ever owned. I still need to get some more acoustic panels made though to get the echo down. Sounds like a night club when I turn it up, but at lower level the echo is not as bass LOL Sent from my SM-G985F using Tapatalk

  19. How did you setup your k402s...do you aim directly at the MLP, before MLP, or after mlp? Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  20. I actually like the more raw vocals sound better...maybe down the road I will like to try a more polished vocals, but for now no. I will have to see if I can dig up my old rew mlp settings for the JBLs to see how they were different with Dirac. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  21. I am loving the MEHs so much, and I am glad I decided to try them out! I used to have the JBL 2360As with the same horn drivers, and Q Pies, they def do not sound the same. On some songs I get a more raw sound that makes the singer sound like they are in the room. With the JBLs the sound of vocals were more of a polished, warmer sound. The bottom end on the MEHs is a fuller sound and appears to be digging a little deeper too. I have moved the speakers as far in the corners as I can, and I think the bass is even better than when we measured. I am still listening to see if there is any fine tuning that needs to be done other than placement and acoustic panels. Currently the soundstage is wide and some instruments sound like they are right next to me...12' from the rack in front of me. Absolutely awesome sounding. I am wondering if my results might have something to do with the different size ports that we made because we were kr8g8nally goimg to go OB with them...which btw is also a great sounding way to go. Theis even more,spacios, but did not dig down as low,, so I had cabinets made. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  22. If you have not ever heard a pair of [mention=62555]Chris[/mention] A MEHs... I seriously suggest you do! I am very impressed with how mine turned out, and there is no way I could buy anything that would sound as good as these are for anywhere near what I have invested. Look for a used pair of k402s, and save some money too. I went the budget route and got EV DH1As, and then a new pair of Emminence kappa 15Cs...DH1As go for about $100 each used. They are not that hard to build either. Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  23. I have the center channel completed, and installed on its new angled stand, and my left and right channes are setup now in their positions.@Chris A do you want to work on the tune now or do you want to wait until I get the wood versions built? Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  24. Thanks Chris. I was wondering because I am putting together a wood/MDF horn that is modeled off the short side of the k402 and will be square. I intend for this to be a surround version that will be smaller, and was not sure if I should go with 2 15" woofers or 2 or 4 smaller woofers with the cabinet being almost half the size. I did not want to have to change the ports to change to a different size woofer, after the horn was setup for 15" woofers. Any recommendations on woofers for a 25" x 25" horn? Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
  25. How does the compression ratio of the ports affect the sound...is it efficiency? What happens if you have less compression ratio vs higher compression ratio vs 10:1? Sent from my SM-T830 using Tapatalk
