Re: what are you doing ?

Re: what are you doing ?

What a individual has to consider is if on their arrival home, are they going to be in the company of the High Risk / Vulnerable, as the desire to make a few quid, might just end up being the straw that broke the camels back, for the vulnerable individual. Tragically in many cases it isn't a desire...

Re: what are you doing ?

We were going to have the back garden landscaped which I was really looking forward to as it's a huge job and I wasn't going to be doing it. 6 weeks work for a landscaping team. Well that's my job now for the foreseeable. We're on our third skip. Drive is full of 4 jumbo bags of sand for starters an...

Re: Lii Audio Speakers

I'm taking about traditional full range driver types, not some of the modern crap which are flat in response and constipated in sound .. ( just my view of course..) Cheers.. With respect Steve I think you need to get out more and move on from the sounds and designs of the 1940's. Speaker design and...

Does anyone know if there's a guide as to where you should site the ports if I have 3 of them?

Re: Tannoy Enclosure

I've had a bit more time to think and come to terms with my limitations. Also, I have to consider for the first time, where these things will live and how they will fit in. And I think a rectangular box will do it best as it's all part of a "look" the whole system is meant to be a part of with the r...

Re: Tannoy Enclosure

Ray's thread got me excited about fancy shapes and all kinds of good ideas, but ultimately I have to realise and accept, I want this to happen and going that route will mean it's too complicated for me to build so this has to be a simple box I can get CNC cut so I can stick it together. I appreciat...

Re: Tannoy Enclosure

Done a lot of reading and have come to the conclusion that most threads get to a point where a decision has to made about alignment and some other stuff. All this presumes that the person knows something about speakers which I don't. Those of us that don't know anything much get to this point and ju...

Re: Lii Audio Speakers

As far as resonant modes go in the enclosure, Scott meantioned the top and bottom being parallel will still be affected. Would making those surfaces very rough, with say mouldings in a somewhat random mountainous profile, peaks of say 30mm, break up those modes?

Re: Billington

That name Jim fish rings a bell. I'm sure he sold me the 813s that got my power amp saga started 15 or so years ago.

Billington

A recommendation resulting from a few dealings with them. Always very pleasant on the phone. Delivery before they say, superb packaging. My first purchase came with a free gift of another 6AX4 to add to the 4 I bought. This time I had a faulty DW4 and even though they test before send, they were goi...

My view is a larger cab will result in a better sound, more of open baffle like sound right across the range.
The bigger the cab, the less critical the port tuning becomes
That's interesting and a question I asked on my thread without comment. There must be a downside to a big box?

Re: Munich Show 14-17 May 2020

I would wager they're insured but many people will have bought air tickets and accomodation. Lucky Munich is a good city to visit for other things. Many more sock drawers will get sorted.

why can't we do something new for a change.....like get Jamie Cullum to knock something up in 5/4 or 7/8.....off the wall and likely to grab some attention...
just sayin
Caught him at Glastonbury by accident. He absolutely rocked it which I wasn't expecting. So much fun and tight! Gets my vote.
