Bi-Amped K-Horn + K-402 horns w/ KPT-415 woofers

@Shiva has sent me a link to some info about handheld audio recorders with built in microphones. Very compact and convenient. Now I need to study about those devices.

The wood grain on the garage speakers have a 3-D illusion when the viewing position changes, or in the case of these pictures, when the position of the light source moves.

My original room was 13 x 21, with the LS on the narrow end wall,  I placed mics about 12 feet back. That was my regular listening location.

I have an old dining table that was taking up space in storage, so I might as well use it as a woodworking table in the garage. My metal workbench is for mechanical projects.

Were you recording the output of the speakers, or was there some karaoke singing taking place?

I would like to read more about those ultra-flat black paints before buying an expensive sample. One of my concerns with ultra-flat is if household dust will be a nuisance in the long run.

Playing CD tracks that I've been listening to for years and am familiar with them.

 

I was going to say, certain models of the Zoom recorders  would work quite well.

 

I'll see if I can find one of the tracks I re-recorded and maybe put it a Dropbox so you can have a listen.

Removed some drivers to take a picture of the foam inserts because of a forum member's question last week, and now have decided to re-cap the crossovers and re-finish the scratched walnut Heresy IIs.

Made some small panels to study the different patterns possible with the veneer for my next project. Pardon the flaws and rough clear coat, these boards are just test samples. The one board common to both pictures is the same piece viewed from different angles.

Sanding the oiled walnut surface has removed the scratches and the black circle from a potted plant. I could just apply some boiled linseed oil and be done, but I have already cut the new veneer sheets, and want to continue learning how to work with veneer.

Would have been so much easier to just re-oil the Heresy IIs and then go climb a tall mountain, but I needed to get some experience with this unbacked, raw veneer on a moderate size box before applying it to my big Klipsch speakers.

The wood sealer needs to dry for a day before I can add the clear coat, so I will re-cap the crossover networks.

 the wrap over the k402 horns  sure makes these horns look like they can be more resistant to  accidental impacts - sort of like a shield -plus it looks really good

Ideally, a matched pair of speakers should be mirror images to each other, but I intentionally went random with these cabinets to examine the different grain pattern options for my bigger project.

The larger size of the replacement 68 uF capacitor for the Heresy II made it necessary to move the crossover PCB from the terminal cup to a separate board.
