Or just generate DC and be done with it?

 

That fits right in with my original suggestion of abandoning 120 VAC and using DC.

One could say that rectified 3-phase has three times the ripple, just at a lower intensity :^)

 

Rectified 120 VRMS single-phase has two "dips" from 170 V to 0 V per cycle. Rectified 120 VRMS 3-phase has six "dips" from 170 V to 147 V per cycle. The 3-phase ripple is higher frequency but 17dB lower amplitude.

Heck, the Moderators participate in the threads !!  At least I specifically suggested to you  :   wire to use, lengths, and showed you a photo of my crossover as of 8-2019.  

 

Best wishes, have fun.

 Oh yes comedy gold and no one has to tune in here since they know what is going on. Admit it MookieStl you could not sit down and be this creative and there is a form of literary genius at work here.

I have my VOTTS set up,  ( A7-8s)  after several years, finally,  to where I am happy with them, and the new KT88 DC SE amp looks like it will have me quite satisfied. 

 

 I have three of those on my storage rack ready for rebuilding. What would you recommend I do for the best possible sound?

Dave, don't waste your time, you have better things to do....

I don't know Jim, I like Monty Python too although my wife thinks it is a complete waste of time. Far Side is another one and absurd things just entertain me I guess. It's like John Cleese was here and writing the Ministry of Silly Wires.

Dear Dave A:

 

Ship all three to me for careful inspection.   You maybe won't like front-firing, directly-radiating into the room at you 15 inch woofers , woofers that are front horn loaded, from 135 hZ on up.  The two-way A7-8 has a very poor deep low-end compared to any Klipschhorn .   That alone, is a critical negative amongst true audiophiles.  And besides,  there are no provisions for employing banana plugs.

From the ludicrous to the sanctimonious.   What more could you ask for?

How about a big bowl of popcorn, and an ice cold beverage of choice?

 

A sense of humor helps too :)

Dave, you're right, I am just too stupid to recognize genius!

It would have been a shame to lock the thread before the best pearl of wisdom was spewed. He edited, but looks like Code captured it.

All that time and effort invested, and I miss the payoff by going to bed early. Le sigh.

=== several pages back I believe JDM wondered out loud if there was a Forum member in the KC area where he could maybe have a listen   to Klipsch speakers with his newly developed KT88 tuber. Indeed there is, right here, where you could hear what your amp can do with Jubilees and/or LaScalas and/or Quartets and/or Heresy 1, lll and/or RB75. However two issues do stand in the way of that happening - one being the internal wiring of any of my Pass Labs gear not meeting your approval and the aforementioned Mr. Pass, being a yet to be discovered novice in the field of amplification, would turn tail and leave the field before leaving his mark. Two being I am still a member in good standing with the FBIs’ witness protection program hence my physical location shall remain “unknown”. Otherwise, you are more than welcome —

Actually I do like A7's and they are one of the very few speakers that are not Klipsch I will work on. I was just hoping to get recommendations on what to do to make them be their very best full frontal audio experience.

  I have to admit to being a bit confused though by your audiophile comment. I though you had stated elsewhere that those A7's were the very best thing out there and that is why you had a set of them and now you are saying they are not audiophile grade quality. Are you telling me not to bother fixing these up?

You have to listen to them in the nude.  How could you not know that?
