  1. I agree. Efficiency was reduced, but not significantly. IMO, La Scalas benefit from a good sub(s). Having a sub makes the bass mod unnecessary. Without a sub, the bass mod is worthwhile and, as has been said ad nauseum, is easily reversible.
  2. DizRotus

    French Press

    The enemy of the people.
  3. You might want to also edit the first line that seems to contradict the “SOLD” in the subject. After reading the posts, it seems they were “sold,” then not sold, but are now sold again.
  4. Donate it to a worthy charity.
  5. Maybe Navy can red shirt some players or get a transfer player or two. Oh . . . I forgot, Midshipmen and Cadets are unlike other football players.
  6. I hope a good Navy team beats a good Army team this year. If not, the First Class (seniors) wIll go through their entire USNA career without a victory in that classic rivalry.
  7. The coaches blew that. There’s no excuse for having too many men on the field. The play calling was unimaginative. Apparently, shuffling the same assistant coaches to different assignments in a game of musical chairs is not working.
  8. I would insure it for a little more than it would cost me to replace it with more DIY. IMO, expecting to recover your time is naive. For me it’s a hobby, not an income stream.
  9. So far, the CNC cuts are fine. Screwing directly into MDF gives me the willies, so I’ll glue and clamp small sections of hardwood dowels to the back of each screw location. Once glued together, the only access is by removing the screws attaching the plate to the back or the drivers. Without the supplemental real wood, removing and replacing screws in MDF securely would be damn near impossible. I also plan to round over all hard exterior edges with a router. IMO, it looks better and prevents the inevitable dents in the hard 90 degree edges. I’ll post photos as I go along. Unless this thing sounds like crap, which I don’t expect, I’ll be buying more for my sons, nephews and niece.
  10. They’re all spoken for. Thanks for putting these to good use and keeping them out of a landfill.
  11. EDIT 9/12/19 They’e all spoken for. Part number: 300-7064 on PE site. Five bundles as shown are available to forum members for the cost of shipping. They’re $39.98 on the PE site. PE .56 cubic ft. Knock down mdf bookshelf speaker cabinets. Each bundle ~14#. The attached photos show what they look like when assembled. They do not have any holes for terminals, ports, drivers, etc. I’ve built a dozen. My plans for these changed. They’re available bundled as shown. Take 1, all 5, or something in between. PM if you’re interested.
  12. The maximum available space for grills is as follows: woofer = 3.5” diameter; and tweeter = 2.5” diameter. I’d like to find black metal grills in those diameters. Upon further reflection, I think I’ll use Titebond, as shown in the PE videos.
  13. Everything arrived. It looks very good. It will be a fun project. The first decision is the type of glue. The instruction video shows yellow wood glue, such as Titebond. I have used wood glue or Loctite PL on other speaker projects, both with good results. Each has benefits and drawbacks, but I’m leaning toward PL. If interested, two links to videos from PE’s site are included below. In fact, they’re included whether or not you’re interested. https://www.parts-express.com/DisplayProductVideo.aspx?VideoID=3065&zpid=46790 https://www.parts-express.com/DisplayProductVideo.aspx?VideoID=3064&zpid=46790
  14. I ordered this miniDSP 2 x 4 Balanced Kit on 9/5/19; it arrived today. Five days from China to Michigan. I've had birthday cards from across town take longer. Given the warnings about this unit, I don't expect it to become a permanent addition to my system. I do expect it to let me evaluate the gross concept of delaying everything else to let the subs catch up. If there's an improvement, I expect to get a more elegant, i.e., quiet form of balanced DSP.
  15. I just ordered one and a handle. Now I want rubber feet and grills.
  16. What tweeter grill did you find?
  17. It seems that parity among college programs could be real. Other than Alabama, college football teams appear to be equally good, or bad.
  18. I know you mean this as a compliment, but I have a different take on your comment. To me, amps shouldn’t sound tube-like or digital, they should sound like the music they are reproducing. After years of enjoying several excellent tube amps, I’ve switched totally to class-D. If by accurately reproducing the source material with zero noise, high dynamics, full frequency range, and great separation sounds “digital,” then I’m all for it. None of my high quality tube amps sounded as good as my balanced class-D chip amps. Others may disagree, but I don’t consider “digital” as a negative adjective. YMMV
  19. Cant disagree with you Andy, you were there. Upon closer inspection, I was starting to agree the braces could be centered, now you eliminate any doubt.
  20. Sparty has fugly uniforms, Maybe such colors appeal to Millennials, but not to this old fart.
  21. At this rate Harbaugh will need his legacy connection to get a coaching job at Western Kentucky. #7 Hudson, a senior, lined up offside. C’mon man!
  22. Penalties and turnovers are keeping Army in the game. I expect the second half to be better for Wolverines.
  23. Watching Michigan vs Army with no sound while doing NordicTrak and listening to Blues Breakers John Mayall With Eric Clapton. Neither team can hang onto the ball, With 2:51 to go in 1st half: ARMY. 14 M. 7 GO ARMY!
  24. Perhaps the word order in the subject could be reversed. Your hearing is only as good as your ears. At 70, my high frequency hearing is severely limited above 6kHz. Nevertheless, I still enjoy the treble content of music, the cymbals in Take Five for example. When playing test tones through my DIY Super Heresys and four DIY tapped horn subs, I can hear content at 25Hz, more important, I can feel the bass. My best IEMS or cans can’t replicate the bass pressure experienced in my small listening space.
