  1. Have you considered building an Edgar Tractrix horn to compare to the ZXPC? I had asked the ZXPC supplier if he can build the tractrix, he was interested but did not follow up. If we could get maybe 5 or ten of us interested in a tractrix maybe he will make them. If the same price as the ZXPC, I'd be in for two pairs with Fc of say 250 or 275 (to use with K Horns and with La Scalas), so we just need maybe 8 more interested parties to make a good offer to get a run going.
  2. They would actually look pretty good with black grills on the top hats (if the wood horns were not protruding).
  3. The vent holes are already there. I just need to put in a channel to get the air to the top of the insulation as I will be adding quite a bit of height to it.
  4. I am about to add insulation to my attic and need to install vent baffles. Here are some from the home depot, but a review from Arizona said that they melted in the sun in May. I am in Las Vegas so I need something much better. Any insulation contractors here? https://www.homedepot.com/p/Amerimax-Home-Products-41-in-x-22-in-Accuvent-Vinyl-Attic-Airway-and-Soffit-Vent-in-Black-ACCUVENT/202962730
  5. The comments on Slickdeals are funny. They have no idea what these are.
  6. Let us know how these turn out. I have them saved in my watch list.
  7. This looks sweet https://inlandempire.craigslist.org/ele/d/riverside-rca-wt-100a-laboratory-mutual/6825908192.html
  8. Nice, how Much were the Chorus II badges? I could use a set of those and Forte II badges.
  9. The curves are not that extreme, do you think that I can do it? I am a novice but very patient and detail orientated.
  10. I think he will get his asking price. It is obvious that his negotiating a deal making skills have made him very successful.
  11. Good ideas. I checked my dolly, I need to take the stair rollers off and maybe replace the belts. Definitely need to lube and make sure that it works and rolls well.
  12. OK, I bought a pair of B&W 805s in black ash. They are in great condition, not scratches or dents, but I hate black ash. I can sand them down and stain them or re-veneer them. Here is the issue with r-veneering them. The sides are one big curve, but continuous and only curved in one direction. This may be tricky, but not impossible. The top is curved, but curved in two directions. Here is a picture from the internets to give you an idea (not my speakers). Curved side to side and front to back on the tops. Can this be done without driving myself crazy? I'd like to use an exotic veneer like burl.
  13. I have one of these but have been afraid to use on the stone stairs. I have had it for almost 30 years so I should check the condition of the belts. I was thinking of maybe a hand truck with rubber wheels that inflate would be better on the stairs.
  14. I have a few hand trucks, but need a good one for going up stairs (the stairs have stone on them, no carpet, so I must be careful to no chip any stair). I need to haul, no surprise here) speakers up and down stairs. Big ones. Any recommendations?
  15. Is the woofer the same impedance as the K33? I seem to remember the Speakerlab being 4 ohms? I have a pair in storage and cannot check. Is the mid range 8 or 16 ohms?
  16. Very nice. Have you done any mods? I know that the tweeters probably need a new piece of foam under the diaphragm and I'd like to build charge couples crossovers for them.
  17. No, the deal from 13 years ago didn't happen so I got my first pair yesterday. But I have wanted a pair since I first saw and heard them as a kid at a stereo store. My first speakers were JBL L60T's. Bought new at age 19. Should never have sold them.
  18. Thanks. They are tall. my wife is not much taller than the speakers. I am excited to get these going. I actually wanted a pair for about 37 years and these are mint specimens that are local.
  19. Almost 13 years to the date and....here they are (at least a pair that I got today). One owner speakers and they are the 250TIs, not the 250s. No blemishes and the surrounds are all good. Even have the original grills and fabric which is not torn nor do they have any holes. Some Chorus IIs for perspective, plus I need to store these here because I am doing a project in another room.
  20. I saw that and can try to temporarily set up the projector, but I just wanted some advise from anyone who has some experience.
  21. I bought a used Stewart Firehwak screen and mounted it. It has a grey screen. My room has good light control (blackout shades) but is not treated. The walls are tan / brown and the ceiling is white. My projector is a Benq HT3050. I do not have the projector hooked up yet. Do you see any issues with the grey screen?
  22. Don't know. But I don't think that you should set fire to them and breathe the smoke. PCBs readily penetrate skin, PVC (polyvinyl chloride), and latex (natural rubber).[12] PCB-resistant materials include Viton, polyethylene, polyvinyl acetate (PVA), polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE), butyl rubber, nitrile rubber, and Neoprene.[12] Some PCBs share a structural similarity and toxic mode of action with dioxins.[6] Other toxic effects such as endocrine disruption (notably blocking of thyroid system functioning) and neurotoxicity are known.[7] The maximum allowable contaminant level in drinking water in the United States is set at zero, but because of the limitations of water treatment technologies, a level of 0.5 parts per billion is the de facto level.[8]
  23. If they are from the 1970s or older and have oil coming out you may have PCBs. Nasty stuff and environmental waste.
  24. Wow, that is too good of a deal. Were they the tiger's eye or the red maple (forgot the name of the finish).
