    New caps and break in

    I have jupiters in my dac cause I wanted that slightly rounded off, warm natural, vintage british sound (& love them) for the crossovers of my custom cornwalls I thought more jupiters might be too much so I went with rike audio s caps (crystal clear & totally neutral) I really think they let the characteristics of the equipment shine thru.
  2. have to agree with Dean. b&c de120 first. the crites a55g mid driver is incredible. do yourself a major favour & when you decide to recap the xovers use some higher end caps (see humble homemade hifi for sound characteristics) the results of using “boutique” caps will take your breath away. (in my build the mids were too forward, a solen 1.8 resistor was the solution)

    shrinking cornwall

    looks great. I like the extra braces across the back for the rear panel to attach to. no insulation inside? what about adding a resistor to the hf to tame it a bit?
  4. hello, operator...how may I direct your call? (giving away my age with that one)

    shrinking cornwall

    PBS documentary "Soundbreaking"

    an absolutely fantastic documentary. I also had the whole series on my pvr which ended up biting the biscuit & I lost everything on the hard drive. just can’t bring myself to drop $100 on a dvd. I’ll eventually find it on upay

    I’m a rum guy (don’t hold it against me) lol I saw this once 3 years ago locally $350. turns out it’s made, bottled & distributed from the island in small batches only. a buddy went there on vacation & brought me this one back. only cost $60. talk about one hell of a mark up

    my cornscallas...so far

    just picked up the grills from the upholsterer. it’s the klipsch heritage fabric from Bob Crites. 1/4” plywood with black melamene finish. drilled 8 holes to install cup magnets to hold it to motorboard
