Last Nights Project

Post by hewlew1 » Sat Jan 26, 2013 8:24 pm

Played with these last night. I had bought them a few months ago and never got around to them until last night. Originally I thought they needed midranges as they were missing when I bought them,so I purchased a pair of them from Parts Express.Come to find out I really needed a pair of tweeters because someone mounted the mids in where the tweeters belonged. In my stash I found a pair of dome tweeters I could make work so last night I threw them together and was pleased with the outcome. Highs and mids are very nice ,very open and airy sounding bass is a tad bit shy but I guess that is what is to be expected from an acoustic suspension enclosure. Easily correctable by adjusting the control from its normal setting. Played them on my Carverfest Monoblocks SWE ET!

Any pair but Cerwins - they are spoken for - he just hasn't agreed to the deal yet!

I may need an alibi when they go missing - anybody game?
