  1. @Rolox, maybe get some wider washers to put between the lock washers and bolts that the drivers come with. Better to err on the side of caution.

     

    You will need to open up the mounting holes, I think I wound up going three sizes of drill bit larger. A little wiggle room to centre the horn over the throat. 

     

    Unless you start gigging your speakers, lol, you won’t need to worry about supporting the drivers.

     

    But I did notice almost all of the perimeter horn flange mounting holes on my set have hairline cracks that will need careful attention whenever they wind up tightened onto a motorboard. Nothing that hasn’t happened to many of the other horns I’ve used. 

     

    For the fun of it, I’m trying the ZXPCs 2-way at the moment with Faital Pro HF200s and a Crites passive made for these drivers crossing at 500hz on the big Klipsch K-402. It’s not too shabby nearfield, which is all my room affords. 

     

    Good to hear you got confirmation for your order.

    Hope everyone is well, been just listening mostly through covid here.

     

    Do you think the kits will squeeze more out of 78" Cornwalls or will these always be a little more duller that say CWII's even when updated ? I just hate to get too bright having older ears.

     

    Anyone tried crossgrading from Crites kits to the JEM btw ?

     

     

    “Crossgrading”!

     

    I like that. It is either original or crossgraded.

    Well, I was finally able to get in touch with a company in Curaçao (!) that has the PRV WG45-50 (same as ZXPC 18x10) in stock and I made the payment yesterday. I have no idea when I will receive the horns (I'm ashamed to admit I actually had no idea where Curaçao was, I think I didn't even know it existed) so fingers crossed.

     

    Now I hesitate between getting some adapters to mount my A55G, or to just order the PRV drivers whenever I can.

     

     

    Did the company you ordered the PRV horns form not have the other PRV products?

     

    The screw-on 2” adapters and the drivers?

  4. @Desert Noises, that sentiment was precisely why I had bought new networks and tweeters prior to even owning a pair of LS.

     

    I don’t regret buying the A/4500s, it is a different sound though. Not a better or worse comparison, just preference.

     

    But if chucking out the ALs is the worst decision you’ve ever made I publicly applaud your good fortune.

  5. @mintnyl, before you pull the trigger on any capacitors you may want to wait and see which crossovers come in your ‘79s.

     

    If they are not the B-2s you may want to look into what’s involved in updating to them. In for a pfennig, in for a pfund, lol.

     

    Does the NAD gear come with your Cornwalls? The tone controls on the old NAD stuff could really bring out the best in any speaker.

  6. @Islander, Molson Park is now Park Place, a retail centre anchored by Cabelas and across the road from Costco, lol.

     

    The Molson Brewery relocated over twenty years ago and the facility became one of the largest secret grow-ops for a brief period until the cat got out of the bag.

     

    You have to drive another half hour north now to Burl’s Creek for an outdoor venue. The Stones packed about 70,000 people in there in 2019.

     

    ...really missing live performers at this point, that is what is really criminal.

  7. I literally just gasped out loud when I read that you threw your ALs in the trash, lol.

     

    That’s what the Garage Sale section and eBay is for. Posterity at the very least. Plus all that junk about another man’s trash...

     

    Glad to “hear” you like the results though.

     

    The AL-3 was in the first pair of LaScalas to cross my doorstep and even though I had bought A/4500s and CT-120s in anticipation of using them,  I never felt the need to even try them until several years later in different pair.

  8. @chassell, I recently picked up a mixed set for repair.

     

    Different motorboards.

     

    Same crossovers.

     

    Bit it looks like the K-48s are different. One is(was, its trashed) pro vented and the other is the same one used in the Chourus without the vent. Have no idea if this was stock.

     

    Do yours have different woofers?
