Dennis Leisz recently visited with Mr. Widget and got to see and hear the Project May prototype first hand. He has asked me to post the following photos of that visit. That's Dennis on the left and Mr. Widget on the right in the first photo.

Don, you are going to be one very happy camper. Maybe a little less room in your place, but well worth it.

Hello Don,

Is the project may also available for members. I like to have the internal dimensions of the cabinet. Where can i buy the crossovers and so on.

Hi Kor,

Hans Peter has posted the drawings in this thread:

http://www.audioheritage.org/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=5814&page=2&pp=15

As you will see as you dig through the thread, the design is still a bit fluid and may change further. Once the project is complete, I am sure there will be complete documentation of the final version.

As for the crossovers, they are technically still under development. I expect, the schematics will be posted once they are complete.

The project has been dormant, perhaps hibernating is a better term, but in the coming weeks/months it will reawaken and with luck come to a conclusion in the Spring.

Don hopes to flush out the Project May Blog and bring it up to date. Once work resumes we will once again be meandering in the Project May Threads posting our progress.

Kindly requesting access to Project May so that I can connect to the above link. (It's kind of nice to know I didn't miss the conclusion of the project.)

Regards,
Mike

To gain access, you'll need to send Don a PM.

Be prepared to sit at your computer a very long time. Some of the threads are quite long and convoluted, while others are more to the point.

Suppose you want to build project may. How will you get the crossover units. I mean are there schematics? I am not a technician. Though i like to build these.

Thanks. Now where can I buy them??:)

Thanks. Now where can I buy them??:)Find a local JBL dealer who is willing to work for you. I was able to order 1500ALs but it took 3-4 months of waiting and more than a couple of phone calls from my dealer to JBL Consumer. If you are patient and determined you can get them, but realize these parts are not inexpensive.

Thanks, Widget. Actually I do have a pro dealer that I bought my 1401Nds through. I just thought that because the drivers used in high end systems like the K2 are "current product" that they wouldn't be available to someone ordering them as parts. I did try once order the 045Be, and I was told by JBL that it was "obsolete" OK, then.

I always thought that the only way to get stuff like this was to ask a favor of someone who had connections at JBL. I don't feel comfortable doing that, so I didn't attempt to try.

I'll see what my dealer (Consolidated Audio) says.

Consolidated should have enough pull to get you anything...
