    I have found a little time to work on my super cheap array project.Will find time to make 1 more panel tonight, or tomorrow.will be nice to listen in stereo. It has been a little cooler here in Jonesboro. This is the coolest/cheapest project I am working on right now.

      I remember all those tweets being sold in a box. I wondered if someone was going to put them to use in a line array. I remember seeing the Meniscus 3"ers too. Wow, you made good use of alot of really good sales. What is you bass driver?

      Hope you get the other one done so you can listen to them in stereo. I am glueing up cabinets in the woodshop and trying to configure a small cabinet out of any scraps I have left over. Fairly relaxing.

        I am searching high and low for some 6-to-10inch drivers on the cheap to do 3way with. Less than $4 per unit, I might splurge on some of the Jamo 10's that are around $7 Ea


        The bass driver is a NHT 10" foster sub (I bought 4 of them), and for the money invested this is a great system.

          I've been looking at those peerless drivers for a while and going back and forth. Price is down from what it once was too. Let me know how it works out. Hip--Ive got several of the nht subs too. I built my 17 yr old a sealed sub for his room. Are you using it sealed or vented? Crossing it active or passive?

            That box is sealed 1.5 cft.with a old first generation dolby digital (AC3)decoder. IIRC its crossed at 100hz. I will soon build 2 into my wifes ford expidition (all custom fiberglass work) 2cft with 600Watts. I grabbed 4 when Jack Hidley had them on sale. I think that was about the best bang for the buck sub deal ever.

              OK, this was fun and all guys, but does anyone actually visit this anymore? It lived less than a month? I'm not building anything really, but someone has to be.

                I keep checking in. I am hoping to start a new project soon. I still have to finish my tiny rs125-4 towers. I think I am going to have to hunt down some measurements and see where my crossover has gone wrong. After that I was hoping to do an opamp preamp with active sub crossover and remote volume control. I have been poking around thinking up lots of projects. Hopefully as these projects start happening there will be enough interest here that we can all help with each other’s questions although I may have the most questions ;)
                Thanks'

                  Hipster, Lefty got his XT25s this weekend. I am going to head to st. Louis for Thanksgiving so that will be the first time I am going to be in your neck of the woods. If you are heading to Little Rock give me a yell. We will catch a beer and a sndwich.

                  Tom and I made some sawdust this weekend.

                    Yeah Bill and I were busy sunday. We certainly achieved a lot more In a day than I would have imagined. He has a system down and using the biscuits makes gluing up much easier. I currently have in process at several levels of incompletion 4 pair of speakers and one center channel. I should be a poster boy for ritalin.

                      OK curiosity is killing me. I keep looking at the 25w Sure amp and thinking it would save a lot of time and make a great gift. This leaves me with 2 questions. #1 do you think it would do a reasonable job of pushing some Overnight Sensations, and #2 does PE have a decent wall wart to power the thing. I know the wall wart question is a little elementary, but better safe than sorry. The last time I tried to use a wall wart it sounded like 60hz kazoo so I am a little squeamish.

                      We need to get Tom and Bill to post some pics
                      Thanks'

                        I think 25 watts is more than we were listening with in hot springs. I mean what was actually being applied to the speakers. I have an 80 watt acurus on them in my office and its way excessive. (well maybe not as excessive as your smithereens!)The wall wart thing worries me too though. Thats why I ended up buying the acurus on ebay for ~$80 IIRC.

                          i think your right on that one, but the little sure amp shows to only do about 5W in to 8 ohms at low distortion. I emailed Mark a bunch of questions about his amp from Hot Springs. I also noticed that the description for the sure wall wart says it is recommended for the 15w amp, and that the specs for the 15w are about the same as the 25w.
                          Thanks'

                            Nice to see some life here! I am without home computer for a bit, kids crashed it. I can build any of you guys a good power supply for those cass D amps. I have a pile of good transformers, high amp wallwarts etc. I would be happy to thin out my stash! Email @ [email protected] and I will update you guys soon on some pics of what I am doing!

                              That is cool since the power supplies seem to be quite elusive. I think the same guy that Mark got his TA2020 board from has a nice SMPS for less than 15 bucks!

                                Bill or others
                                Where did that nice mahogany come from?
                                I am also looking for Corian I don’t need much but I would like to select the color so that might rule out scraps.
                                Thanks'
