  1. My N3133

    I built one of the crossovers recommended by Ivica and hooked the Selinium ST324 up. 1st time I ever tried to build from a schematic so I hope I did it right. I used 0.15 mH inductors instead of 0.16...

    Thanks - it seems like a good place to start. Reading about the N3133, I see alot of people have been down this path...
  3. Adding a tweeter to S7 load (LE15A, LE85 w/ HL91, and LX5 crossover)

    While I am waiting for an 077 tweeter and the right crossover to appear, I want to see what these sound like with a tweeter. I have a pair of Selenium ST324 supertweeters 8 Ohm 3500Hz-18000Hz. Any...

    Just to follow through with this, I remounted the diaphragm, loosened and tightened things, moved it around, and things got better but never just exactly right. So I bought another diaphragm off the...

    You are right about the type of sound that sets it off - close miked well tuned vocal harmony (Tallis Scholars for example) and close miked solo piano (Glenn Gould, Well Tempered Clavichord.) Both...
  6. What could be wrong with my LE85 + H91 horn?

    At first it was deteriorating foam and shot diaphragms, but I cleaned up the foam and put in 16 Ohm Radian diaphragms, correctly I think, but maybe not? They sound great with some music, but there is...

    Thanks - I was getting around to wondering if the power handling was as important as the resistance, and these are just for garage use and fooling around with.

    So to comply with the pages attached by HSCGuy it appears to me I need a 20 Watt 160 Ohm resistor for the amp and 50 Watt 32-48 Ohms for the tweeter. If I want to use a tube amp with output...

    So, across the amplifier output posts a 10W 10 Ohm + a 10W 150 Ohm should be equivalent to 20W 10 X Resistance (16 Ohms), that is 20W 160 Ohm, and 5 10W 7.5 Ohm resistors should get me 50W 2 to 3 X...
  10. Thanks for the info and the attachment. This is...

    Thanks for the info and the attachment. This is not as plug and play as I had hoped. It's amazing how quick I can get in over my head! So 20W 160 Ohm resistor across amplifier outputs for my 16 Ohm...
  11. I'm in...

    $99 for the Behringer CX3400 shipped plus some xlr-rca cables and some 20uF caps is cheap enough to find out if I like it. Do I need the caps to protect the tweeters if I'm using tube amp (Magnavox...

    So what did you think? Absolutely worth doing or not so much? Thanks for the advice about the protection capacitors...
  13. Active crossover info for S7 load (LE15A, LE85 w/ HL91 lens)?

    That's what I have, in 5.25 cubic foot unported cabinets, although there is a rectangular adjustable slot in the front on each cabinet. I have been advised (here) to install ports, and I plan to....

    I have refoamed them with Cobb surrounds. Mine were mounted behind the cones, so that's what I did. The fronts were cleaner, but the backs would have been ugly if I had left them...

    This is interesting. 2 ports per cabinet? Rear or forward? Where would you situate them? Would the port values change if I added a slot tweeter? Thanks...

    Dimensions are 15" deep, 22" wide, and 29" tall, maybe just a fraction less on some measurements. So pretty close to 5 cubic feet. The other diaphragm was in way worse shape. The foil and the...

    Rattle in LE85 drivers (JBL)

    Hi. Last week I picked up some JBL drivers in furniture style cabinets that my friends from AK tell me is the S7 array of components.

    Here are some before and afters and a good look at the grill and frame. Gosh, those pictures look big when I preview them. If I am violating any standards, let me know.

    That went pretty well. I worked really slowly and got them back together last night. I've refoamed several sets of speakers, but never done a back of the cone job or used a 30 hz tone for centering...
