Two channel moment 40 years in the making

Recommended Posts

I recently refurbished a pair of La Scala Industrial Splits. There's a thread about all that In the technical/modifications section. Today my wife decided to listen to the result of my labors. She loved hearing the Stones, Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac, and whatever else I could come up with as long as it was loud. Said it was the best set of speakers we've ever owned. I was shocked. She's really never shown much interest in my music hobby. And I've known her since 1975.

She even thought my stories about PWK were interesting.

What's up with that?

Been at this hobby for a while, wife has griped and complained a few times. I hooked up a pair of Bose 601's I had and said " I will sell everything and we can just listen to these since you said it doesn't matter. She said no way we will stay with what we have!!!

That would mean an MWM stack for sure in that case.

She's a keeper.

Yes she is. :-)

Now she's asking what music I'm adding to the library next.

If that ever happens here, it would be in place of the 'suggestions' I get from mine on turning down the volume, using headphones or selling some of that old tube junk and those huge ugly speakers. 

 

At that point its noise cancelling headphone time.  ;)

Congrats on both the speakers and the wife!

My wife can't tell any difference, I ask her how she likes the sound and the most I can get is "it's loud" but she lets me do what I want anyway LOL, 

Enjoy :D

Here's an update. My wife was out of town for business last week. So I installed some updated components: 

 

New crossover networks, from DeanG

 

Dual phase plug, solder lug K55V's, also from DeanG

 

Eliptrac BE120 tweeters, from Dave at Fastlane

 

EZ -Braces for the bass bins, also from Dave at Fastlane

 

And

 

My wife buys me a Marantz CD6005 player for my birthday. 

 

She listens to the CD player for the first time yesterday. Tells me the new CD player sure makes the La Scala's really sound much better than before. I say, "Thanks for the new CD player, it sure does sound great." 

 

I'm a bad boy.  :rolleyes:

Now you need some tractix midhorns from Fastlane also :) Or Eliptracs :)  :)   If you already did that I missed it, sorry.
