  1. I believe you’re playing the “B” side of this.



    I would not ship anything until you’re certain of the funds.  It’s probably a scam and the scammer will grow impatient and disappear.  The question is whether with or without your speakers.

  2. Welcome.


    More information would be helpful.   In what way(s) are you unhappy with the sound?


    What are you using for a source and amplification?  Are they wired in phase?  Are all drivers working?


    If they were mine, I’d open the backs and confirm all connections at the crossover networks.  Eventually you may want to update the capacitors in the networks.


    As to value,  the range is so wide as to be of little use at this stage.  Get them functioning and search eBay completed sales to begin to get an idea of the price range. 

  3. The weather in Southeast Michigan is clear and cold at 9:30 am.  The hourly forecast for Ann Arbor predicts mostly cloudy and temps in the 20s at game time in the annual clash between Wolverines and Spartans.


    The weather in South Bend is predicted to be slightly warmer at game time in the Notre Dame vs Navy tilt.


    In either case, I’d want to watch from the warm comfort of home.  For me, the game day atmosphere, although exciting, doesn’t offset the advantages of watching televised coverage you can record, pause and, reverse as needed.

    ...Besides, my new “specialty” of desktop systems requires even less power!




    Thanks for sharing the interesting and informative article.  Please describe one of your “desktop systems.”


    I constantly have to explain that the relationship of amp power to speaker size is counterintuitive.  Present an audio layperson with a pair of Klipschorns and a pair of BBC ls3/5a monitors and ask which requires more power to play at a given volume. 11 out 10 will say the bigger speaker.  When I explain the Klipschorns respect the laws of physics and are very efficient, but the ls3/5a monitors try to defy the laws of physics to get small drivers to produce big sound waves, they begin to understand.


    I have demonstrated the difference by producing glorious music from my efficient Klipsch speakers using only a tiny chip amp that cost less than lunch and fits in the palm of your hand.  That same amp will produce sound from my BBC monitors but, by the time the electrons navigate the complex equalizing physics cheating crossovers, the sound emanating from the small KEF drivers can hardly be described as music.  It takes 100 times the power to get “music” from the BBC monitors.  Even then they lack the effortless dynamics and live sound of larger horn loaded efficient speakers.

  5. I correctly predicted that MSU would not cover against Illinois.  Hell, they not only failed to cover, they lost outright.  They were awful.


    This week I predict that Michigan will not cover against MSU.  They should win at home against a very down MSU team.  If they win, it would be the fourth time in the last twelve games.  The Wolverines would be wise to put the Buckeyes out of their thoughts and focus on getting past Sparty, for a change.

    about 11


    Reminds me of of a woman I dated in college.  One evening toward the end of our senior year she was filling out applications (remember the paper versions) for teaching positions.  She asked me what they meant by,  “How many books do you have in your professional library?”  I explained that they want to know how many books she owns about education, specifically physical education, as that was her major.  She replied, “none.”  I said surely, you have some old textbooks, just write in a number.  She put, “approximately eighteen.”  I groaned, but did not correct her, after all, she was a phys-ed major.


    She got the job and married a guy she had gone with before he went to Vietnam.  Apparently, I was merely filling a void.

  7. They look good Justin.  Would you consider editing your subject line?  At first I thought this was a relationship thread about achieving “her” nirvana.


    Also, it took me a bit to realize you weren’t referring to speakers built by POTUS’s former attorney.

    How is the treble as you move about?  Are they at all beamy?  It’s been my experience that large surface area sources (can you say Magnepan?) tend to beam the highs.


    In any case, your workmanship is again excellent and, if you say they compare favorably to your Cornscalas, I’m impressed.
