  1. Yeah - for clarification, it was very much a planned burn, and was actually done a bit earlier this year. One of several cabinets that were burned that day. Definitely does not feel right, but I only have so much room to work in. Got rid of a couple of prototype mains, a few unfinished projects, an old car sub cabinet, and the MicroWrecker. It is easier and cheaper to burn them than to dispose of them, though I have hauled a bunch of prototype cabinets down to the local "recycling center" to be used as fuel for the boilers at the neighboring paper mill, I only got charged $20/truckload for tho
  2. I waited a year... Hated to get rid of it, but it was getting in the way.
  3. Try em in Hornresp. Nothing special, just a simple floor-to-ceiling single fold. Tune comes in about 22 Hz. Epically good. Big coil means it soaks up the power and has a nice low inductance too. The temptation is strong with these... Honestly, If I did not have 4 of the 18" 9601s, these would already be in my theater.
  4. I know, right?? Please, someone buy the 9601s so I don't.
  5. Man, that turned out nice and clean! Doesn't look anything like ice cream though...
  6. Wait - what? Did I just see WiSounds post? How the hell are you man?
  7. Why use an amp? Why not use a welder? A sine-wave is a sine wave. My TIG welder can handle short circuits and since it is a TIG, I have a foot pedal for controlling current. Just a thought.
  8. Just an ugly, empty MicroWrecker cabinet. Free to a good home, but you gotta come and fetch it. I'm south of Seattle, Washington.
  9. Man - you're killing me... I want those 9601s, but I sure as hell don't need them. I still have a pair of their 18" little brothers waiting for me to get off my ass and do something with them. Somebody buy these so I don't.
  10. I'll be following along. I really, really want some Synergy horns, I was experimenting with some a while back, but lots of other things got in the way of ever finishing them. I was fortunate enough to be able to check out Bill Waslo's current setups recently,. that definitely rekindled the desire to have my own. As usual, I have plenty of ideas, lots of parts, and nowhere near enough time to turn any of it into reality.
  11. That's a full day... Looking forward to the results.
  12. Gonna be tight fitting a driver of ANY capability sideways in a 14.5" space. I've got a pair of single-folds in my theater, those cabinets are only 16.5" deep externally, and the drivers (18Sound 18NLW9601s) are a snug fit. I couldn't make these much narrower, maybe a half inch. That's still a couple inches too big for this application. My main issue with 12-inch drivers has been finding a good one. I have basically quit looking, all the cool kids are running 21s these days anyhow. Alpine's old Type R 12 was a decent tapped horn driver, one of the better 12s I worked with. No idea a
  13. How much width between the joists? How much clear length? What sort of SPL and extension are you after? A single-fold tapped horn might work.
