    psvane tubes not what i ordered

    I just contacted ebay on the lost tubes. Being that I mailed them first class there is no tracking. Didn't know that. I believed psvane received them and is telling me they did not. Ebay tells me I may get the refund thru paypal or my cc as I may be able to put a stop payment to them. Hate to lose $200 like that.

    Yeah I agree. I bought from viva before with great results, but they don't sell the 6ca7 psvanes I ordered. Can only get those from china direct.

    Yeah, somethings wrong. I believe its lost for sure, but the post office said sometimes packages set at customs for up to 2 months.

    Maybe they will still make there. They have been in the same place for well over a month now.

    Update on the tubes sent back. I sent them on Feb 8 and last check point noted was Feb 12. Psvane has not recieved them, so at this point they are lost in the mail. No refund till they receive them. I have the post office looking it to it. I may be cutting my loss with the postal insurance.

    Long thread about HIIIs deleted. What is going on?

    So, what was the out come? Did he get them figured out?

    Dispersion diffraction directivity horn

    Just measured the CW's. Looks like the Crites mid horn m2380 will have to be mounted horizontal and the tweet vertical leaving enough room to still look normal. So that is the plan. Hahaha! That's funny. Yeah just slit the difference. Gonna get some measures tomorrow . Maybe if the mid horn is big enough I can mount it hori

    2way Cornwall?

    I can get the motor boards without too much trouble, but my CW are 1/4" taller than a typical CW. So, that's a no go. New plan is the mount the Crites m2380 horn horizontal and the tweet vertical in the current motor board. With the B&C drivers and the ALK xover should sound and look good.

    Dispersion diffraction directivity horn

    LOL! Yeah just slit the difference. I will get some measures tomorrow. Maybe I can mount the mid horn horizontal and keep the tweet vertical right where it's at. Second though......diagonal wouldn't look too bad.

    Dispersion diffraction directivity horn

    That's how I understand it. The notch needs to be in a vertical position to get wide horizontal dispersion. It's mostly mumbo jumbo to me. Directive horns work fine for me as I sit in one spot in front of the speakers while listening.

    Try to post some links. Why does copy paste not work on this site?

    Dispersion diffraction directivity horn

    Ok, thanks guys. I found a couple reads that said the diffraction horn disperses better horizontally when mounted vertically. I remember some posting of others here back when I built these that also agree'd with this theory. That was one reason I built them with the vertical horn. My thought now is why cant I do the same with the Cornscala build using a diffraction horn vertically. I believe it would be a first vertical Cornscala. I would use the Crites diffraction horn vertical and possibly a 2 way as well. The way I built the vertical Cornwalls I don't think I can get the motor board out to use the Crites motor board. Might look weird, but its just another option for me. I will post the link if I can find it.
  13. What's the difference between these 3 types of horns? They look the same to me.

    5z3pal rectifier tube

    Sounds like a nice powerful project.

    5z3pal rectifier tube

    I think I have to agree with you, although the JJ is very good.
