  1. "Klippel Verified" means whatever the marketing department wants it to... The inductance isn't terrible (5.09 mH vs a 3.95 ohm Re), but it is no mid-bass. Things are rolling off after 100 Hz. https://www.parts-express.com/pedocs/specs/295-166--dayton-audio-mx12-22-spec-sheet.pdf I don't see any suggestion of inductance mitigation in that impedance plot, and the cutaways don't show shorting rings.
  2. Yeah, I saw that the other day. Plenty of motor, decent stroke, and reportedly quiet. Only real gripe after looking at the specs is that Le/Re is greater than 1. Still, it is a decent looking driver for the $$. If I needed a 600W 12, I would certainly consider it.
  3. 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
  4. I waited a year... Hated to get rid of it, but it was getting in the way.
  5. 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.
  6. I know, right?? Please, someone buy the 9601s so I don't.
  7. Man, that turned out nice and clean! Doesn't look anything like ice cream though...
  8. Wait - what? Did I just see WiSounds post? How the hell are you man?
  9. 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.
  10. Just an ugly, empty MicroWrecker cabinet. Free to a good home, but you gotta come and fetch it. I'm south of Seattle, Washington.
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  13. That's a full day... Looking forward to the results.
