Nice system, are the tweeters timed aligned.

The ALK crossovers have attenuators that are used to fine tune the system

Having tried the tweeters is several positions the best sound is from a slight downward angle at the rear of the mid horn box

Although I have been building speakers for over 20 years these are not my work

They were purchased from another member - However I have contributed to his work by fine tuning & tweaking

Here is some of the build details if your interested

In the photo above it shows the Volti type braces but at a later stage the side walls and back were doubled in thickness and the Eliptrac 400 installed

My tube amps are hand made by Earle Weston of Weston Acoustics in Australia

Both carry the serial number #1

The top unit is the amp - This amp is called the Tweaker because it is purposely made to be tube rolled

It can operate with 4 deferent tube types and is biased manually for each tube type

All transformers are hand wound and also operates in switchable pentode & triode modes

Internal wiring is silver

Max A class watts is 14 W pc using the KT88 Tubes

The lower unit is the pre amp - it is the only one in existence

It's a Prototype 6SN7 Tube pre amp and TDA 1541 NOS DAC

Earle's description in a nutshell it is a Tube preamplifier running a directly coupled 6SN7 driving an output transformer with a OEM TDA1541 DAC board on one of the 4 selectable inputs. The pre-amplifier acting as a gain stage and buffer for the DAC.

It runs three RCA inputs, then the digital section with momentary toggle switch

and LED's that allow you cycle through USB, Optical, SPDIF and I2S inputs.

Specs on the tube section are

Distortion at full volume > 0.06%.

Frequency response +/- 0.25db 20hz to 50khz.

Signal to noise ratio >90db.

Hum at zero volume 0.15 millivolt.

Output impedance 80 ohms
