RF 7 MK II ....The queen is dead, long live the queen

Recommended Posts

The coils on the stock PCB are measured while on the board. IOWs, the mutual inductance is factored in. When you move them apart, oh never mind ...

 

The wound wire is covered with enamel. Hopefully the fancy NASA whatever it is doesn't break it down.

 

The wax coils are nice, but if you didn't match the DCR, oh never mind ...

You mean I should check the distances between the components again? the dimensions of the housings are ca. 12 inch by 20 inch. So I should pay attention to that...thanx

What do you mean with DCR ?

Is this arrangement a better solution ? It´s  an external RF 7 MK II Mundorf crossover.

Your opinion is very important to me . Thanx and regards MicroMara .

What do you think about the Silver Mica Bypass caps , should I leave them out?   I only read good things and heard about the Silver Mica from Germany for the mid-high range.

My technical american english is really not so good that I always understand you straight away. This can easily lead to misunderstandings. Please excuse this.

 

And as far as contact enhancement is concerned, whether the application on the crossover makes sense, I don't really know, but it was on the copper coils of the diaphragm and copper braid strands of the mid-bass woofer, as well as all OFC copper flat plugs and copper braid for the horn and the flat plugs in the crossover connections really useful.

I have been a member of the Klipsch community for 1 week and you are great. Not always and not all, but neither do I. Isn't it that ... the difference between boys and men is the price of their toys and I just want to play ....... again so late 00:05 a.m. local time. Since a week, I no longer get to hear my own system   😂

One last hint for today regarding the experimental setup of the external crossover, the pictures that I posted today. All components are not yet fixed, they are only loosely placed in the housing, so I can pull everything further apart and also separate the resistors. Thank you ...

I wonder how you do to avoid banging in to the woofers

Why would you want to avoid banging those woofers? They look very nice

it's a good  2,300 $ for all moddys together, so phases 1 to 6 , materials only . But with this investment, I hope to make them play in the $ 12-  to 14.000 league. She's already playing in the $ 8- to 10.000 league. 😊 In Germany, however, audio products are very expensive, we have very very high taxes on luxury goods.

You don't get used RF 7 MK II under $ 2.400 a pair, the MK III costs $ 4.400 here.

this is going to be a great crossover -no doubt , I just wonder if the speaker can reach this level of sonic quality , you know best of , course -

Dear DeanG. that's really not true. You are doing a great job. I've been following this for years. You are a teacher of good sound and enjoy a high reputation in the community. Just because there is a crazy German (I mean) who is doing such a crazy sound potential analysis on the RF 7 MK II, does not diminish your work and recognition in any way. I will never achieve your status and recognition.

 

Sincerely MicroMara
