  1. This past weekend my girlfriend and I were driving to a flea market and we passed a set of speakers out on the curb along a busy road. Taped to them was a sign "free". Figured they were junk and kept going. Two hours later they were still there so I pulled over to see what they are and was surprised, KG2 in walnut cabinets in good shape! The only issue is a rear passive with a cracked frame and pushed in dustcover. I can try and fix the frame but since these are so nice I figured I'd check here to see if anyone has a unit that is being parted out. Also does anyone know the PN? Long story short, when we got back to her place I set them up in her mini stereo and she loves them. I'm bringing over a Denon PMA-720 integrated so she has some real power to play with, like me, she likes her music cranked up a bit. BillWojo
  2. I've been busy on some other forums and the few times I have logged onto here I have quickly jumped off. I can't stand this new forum setup, it's annoying as hell. Took me awhile just to figure out how to write a post to complain about it. And WTF is with that damn pop up that keeps telling me to receive forum notifications, no easy way to shut it off. I'll be spending my time back over on AK and the Altec forums. I'll check back in once in a while, maybe this will get fixed. For the administrator, check what AK is using, now that's in another whole league as far as forum software. Rant over, carry on. BillWojo
  3. I have a Dennis Had Inspire amp that I would be willing to part with for 750.00 It's a KT66 SE and sounds great. Run it into a set of Heresy's. I only have so much room and my MC40 mono blocks get top billing. BillWojo
  4. Hey Carbon_66, glad you got your asking price but when I private messaged you an offer a "no thank you" or a counter offer would have been way more appropriate than telling me to "F*** Off". No need to get so ugly on this forum. BillWojo
  5. If the fabric is attached to wood or anything like that, this should not be tried. I have used this several times on filthy speaker grilles if the frames are plastic. I fill the tub with about 2 inches of warm water and add a bit of dish detergent soap. Lay the frames in there flat and swish around. You will see the dirt swirling off of them and crud falling to the bottom of the tub. DO NOT pick the frames up as the wet fabric is heavy and will stretch. Drain tub, add more warm water for a rinse, repeat as necessary. After the final draining wait a bit and carefully stand the frames up to drain. If the fabric is still heavy with water, wait some more. After they have drain well, take them outside to air dry. I have used this technique several times to clean really nasty grills and they have come out looking 100% better. BillWojo
  6. I'm a Carver guy myself, Silver 7T's and Platinum Amazings but I love my MC40 Mac monoblocks and Heresy's. You really need to try a tube amp, those Lascalas will sing. BillWojo
  7. Ok, I'll offer 25 bucks. BillWojo
  8. I have the matching tuner, smoked my CA-880 when I hooked it up to a set of DCM TimeFrame 400 speakers, they didn't care for the load. Very nice looking amp with the meters and all. BillWojo
  9. I believe these are referred to as Heresy 1.5, a transition model between the 1 and 2 model. Mine were built in 1983, the drivers mount on the back of the motorboard and have the older style SN. The horns are made of plastic instead of metal, making mine Heresy 1.5 also. Lot's of info around here on these. BillWojo
  10. Telefunken tubes are highly sought after, premium tubes made in W Germany and usually fetch top dollar. The Jesse Brent web site can give you a good incite into the various tubes and manufactures out there. If the 6SN7 is still available and test good, you might want to grab it. BillWojo
  11. Deang, I like your idea of build threads. Along with some technical discussion on how you figured out the design. Maybe some of us can learn something. I have populated and soldered circuit boards in the past, didn't have a clue what was going on in the circuits, wish I did. I have a basic understanding of some stuff but a lot of analog circuits are over my head. So if you have some great crossover or whatever designs, feel free to share them. BillWojo
  12. Thanks Deang. I did a lot of research before deciding on the Metcal. At that point I watched Ebay and put a nice setup together for under 150.00. I purchased a used power supply, a new handle and a bunch of cartridges, both new and used. Even picked up the correct holder for the pencil handle with the cavity for the sponge. Compared to my old Weller it's a night and day difference. Money well spent. BillWojo
  13. Great score, if you need to know anything about your Carver gear, stop on over "TheCarverSite" , I'm a member there and it's a great forum like this one. Lot's of helpful folks if you have any questions. I run my Heresy's off of 40W Mac monoblock tube amps, I run my Carver ribbons off of Carver 575W Silver Seven t monoblocks. That's not a combination that I want to switch up. I fear the Heresy's would let the smoke leak out. Just use the throttle (volume control) wisely. BillWojo
  14. I soldered my Crites kits for my Heresy's, easy work. I use a Metcal soldering station with the induction heating quick change cartridges. Use the right style tip, flux and your on and off the joint pronto. Makes soldering fun. BillWojo
  15. Well you have your priorities in order, who needs sheet rock anyway, it's over rated. BillWojo
