  • What to do?

    Sorry for not posting for a long time, my wife of 28 years has decided to go her own way. Sad.
    Anyway, I am left with 8 Dayton Audio PA165-8 6" PA Driver Speakers in the box and 8 Goldwood GT-1016 2" x 5" Wide Dispersion Piezo Horn Tweeter.
    I was going to make a PA box out of them, but I need some options on what to do with them after all this is over and I can land somewhere. I'd love to make some shop speakers w/a small sub...
    What else can I do with these?

    Thanks so much guys!

      Talk about it, yes continuously, regardless of any social stigma. Joining a support group is an excellent recommendation.

        Pour your heart and sole into building enormous speakers.*

          Thanks for the support, guys. I do want to make something special out of these so I can play them loud!* What will happen if I mount them in a 2 across2down config? Instead of a 4 down config?

            Gary,

            You don't know me and you don't need my advice.

            However, I was married for 27 (mostly hell-ish) years to a narcissist, and finally divorced my ex-wife after her 2nd affair.

            After being single for a bit, I met a wonderful woman. We have now been married over 8 years. FWIW - the last 8 years with the right person by far outweigh what I endured for 27 years with the wrong person.

            May good things and good people fill your future.

              Halved horizontal dispersion in the mids, comb filtering in the highs. My SLA Pro is an example of how you should build a 2x6 or 4x6.

                    Personally I'd go smaller and more modular ( perhaps 4 cabs rather than 2 ). Easier transporting and more configuration options ( The older I get the lighter the liftin' I wanna do ).

                          Well , the divorce is final and it's now a waiting game for the bank. Once everything is divided, ADIOS.
                          So sad....
