  1. I have a question Dean G Where can one obtain those saddle straps that you have used on the square Jupiter capacitors Many thanks in advance
  2. Let me chime in here as I have just recently had a professional make & completed some judicious upgrade's to my new La Scala crossovers Systems rely on a good marriage of many parts and how those parts interact with one another One of those component parts is ourselves and how we interact with what's playing and most importantly on how we actually listen My background in my younger days was with local bands in the form of setup, tune instruments by ear, sound checks and help in recording sessions I can tell you that lots of people just don't know how to listen and I can relate on what Dean is alluding to Although with my background in live music I thought I was a good judge of sound But on one fateful day a good friend that was a member in a national orchestra taught me how to listen deeply One day I may divulge what I learnt over a 2 hour conversation Yes you can remember what you like and what you don't like and try to to get as much like as possible with tweaks and changes

  4. Keeping the speakers natural and with careful product application to bring out it's natural beauty would have been my preference I recently made some frames for my crossovers and kept them natural with just penetrating wood oil.

  5. I may have come in a little late to the La Scala party Love my La Scalas With raw wood finish my personal routine is it use a foam product called white magic to clean and prepare the surface them wiping with clean microfiber cloths If you prefer to sand then use 1200 wet and dry this won't cause damage, just scuff the surface Once satisfied just oil with your preferred clear oil - the best is Tung oil However one can use - Linseed oil, decking oil, Cutec in AU is a penetrating oil and leaves no oily residue after curing Don't forget to post photos of the progress
  6. An update We'll I have been steadily and methodically putting the finishing touches on this crossover build Also a couple of upgrades as we'll Let me post about the upgrades first Jentzen wax inductor coils have replaced the Solis coils High quality double core Auto Transformer, with 15 attenuation steps @ 1 db each have replaced the standard units Today I have also completed the box frames for the crossovers Originally, I specified the utilitarian / industrial look when they were made, and I really like that look a lot - the crossovers definitely needed a frame and other finishing touches to give them a little WAF approval factor Just because they look utilitarian / industrial, It doesn't mean they lack in the design structure and in the parts used area All fittings and parts were carefully chosen for ease of use or sonic signature that I liked - and I only need to please myself I understand that the look and design won't be everyone's liking but looks can be deceiving One deciding factor to layout & construct this crossover set in a single board is because they just won't fit inside the reduced cabinet space in the mid cabinet ( the mid driver cabinet space is non existent ) even the professionally made units won't fit. So it was decided to go a large single board design using affordable high quality parts Why did I choose a box frame - because it matches the frame type and style of my tube amps Some photos
  7. Nothing wrong with being different, quirky or strange - I call that individualism But has common sense gone out the window ? Anyone know where it went or being stored ?
  8. I wouldn't mind a special edition poster to display in Australia - if I can find one
  9. I hope this helps you out On a previous speaker build of very heavy speakers I devised a simple system to move the speakers To briefly describe what I did - Each speaker cabinet was cleverly turned into a trolley when tilted and looked normal at rest ( I am a mechanical engineer by trade ) Some photos First I purchased a suitable a pair of wheels that can handle the weight per cabinet Then bent one section to allow great holding power of two cabinet surfaces when fitted Then I screwed the wheels on the cabinet from back and under side The wheels only engage when the cabinet is tilted Cheers
  10. A good winter warmer from Greece Only a handful of ingredients but beautiful to eat Fasolatha or Greek Bean Soup Ingredients: 500 grams of navy beans (or any other small dried white bean) 1 onion, peeled and chopped 3 stalks celery, chopped (leaves included) 3 carrots sliced or diced thickly More vegetables can be used if its your preference 1 tin of chopped tomatoes ( or ripe fresh tomatoes ) 1/3 cup tomato paste 1/2 to 3/4 cup olive oil ( to add and slowly stirred only when cooking is almost finished ) salt & pepper to taste Lemon Directions: 1- Soak the beans in water over night. 2- Strain the water and place the beans in a pot with new water. 3- Bring to a boil, remove from heat; strain water. 4- Replace the beans, add the rest of the ingredients and enough water to cover all the ingredients and simmer covered for an hour. 5 - Consistency is of a medium runny soup NOTE - A pressure cooker can also be used Serve: Serve with crusty bread to dip Squeeze lemon to taste after its ladled into bowl Kali Orexi How this dish looks and is served
  11. Thanks Tigerman - How did I find this place - We are all in this world recipe called Klipsch Speaker Owner Another recipe to follow
  12. A light snack that's yum Ingredients Focacia bread cut close to 1" thick lightly toasted and brushed with olive oil Fine chopped tomato, onion, parsley, Grilled Haloumy cheese - ( A cheese that was invented in Cyprus ) Mmmmm Yumm
  13. A short time ago I posted a daytime photo of Brisbane from the Valley side view I was at the same location yesterday at sundown and snapped these shots
  14. Hi jorjen I used the standard Duelund resistor in that possition because the cast was/is not available in the value I required except on order Yes I think the Duelund have that something special about them as we'll
  15. If you ever take a holiday in Brisbane Australia then give me a holler
  16. Here is a photo of the top view with labels All that remains now is the Jentzen Inductors - wax flat wire to replace the Solis twisted wire coils and the box frame to finish it off
  17. A few days after the hookup wire was finished, resistors arrived A day was chosen to do the changeover The resistor upgrade was completed And while having a listen to the system after our handiwork with some coffee to calm the nerves the mail man delivered another parcel. The Vishay 1837 0.01uF 160v foil capacitors. So we fitted these in. The Vishay's are used for shunting internal inductance of the parent capacitor The transformation is amazing the extra detail we could hear in some instruments is nothing short of amazing A very worthwhile changeover In My Humble Opinion
  18. An update is in order for the crossover build While I was waiting for the delivery of the resistors and 1 uf Vishay capacitors in the mail, I made some hook up wire for the drivers to the external connection of the crossovers I used 8 TC Kimber cable in this application with great results
  19. Member @Paul29 was after some - only a couple of weeks ago
  20. I was recommended to purchase this CD ( so I did ) Bella Fleck - The Flight Of The Cosmic Hippo It's Jazz Fusion style but the bass is a good test for any system
  21. I highly recommend the bass reflex sub cabinet Although the drivers have been upgraded they easily reach 30 htz and below Coupled with good crossovers the bass is fast, accurate and vibrates the house https://vimeo.com/95931681
  22. I believe it's this - got the info online and took a screen shot
  23. Update I have been testing the crossovers - giving them some burn in time, and have found them very agreeable Sound is beautiful at this crossover point @ 500htz for this setup combination Myself and the builder of the crossovers, have given a score of 9 out of 10 I will however tweak the crossover minimally by replacing or adding 1) Pathaudio earthed Resistors to the tweeter section 2) Mills Resistors to the tweeter PCB 3) Duelund standard Resistor 4) Jentzen flat wax Inductor Coils to service the mid and tweeter sections I feel and hope that these tweak additions to the crossovers will take the La Scalas to another level and then I will sit and enjoy the music forever more ( famous last words ) Just taken a short video ( hope it does the system justice )
  24. Where is the espresso coffee on the beverage choice
