    Well, both aren't that bad as All My Love. The Crunge is pure funk, featuring some synth, Dancing Days is quite a relaxed number featuring the Hohner Clavinet. I didn' want to say taht I don't like...

    In my opinion the In Through the Out Door album is LZ's weakest one. Jimmy Page heavily was on heroin when it was recorded and produced, John Bonham was on booze, as always. So Robert Plant and John...

    Don't get me wrong, please, I really love LZ's Rock and Roll, especially due to John's drum intro. Anyway, I almost like any LZ songs, you know ;). Just a few exceptions...

    I know I'm too late now, but in your case I'd have built two new enclosures for your K140's, for example according to the 1975 enclosure plans from this site. Then you'd had the choice to get one or...

    Hi,

    coincidentally I noted something strange in your Confinement blues thread. I can't see your pics, but others answered like they might have seen them. Weird.

    This Atlas CD reportedly also serves well as a replacement for the ancient and NLA Jensen VC20 driver in Leslie organ speaker cabinets. One has to buy the -16 version, not the -T one, though, as a 70...

    Hi,

    perhaps the most prominent application for these big butt cheeks biradials was in the 4430 and 4435 studio monitors. In Addition to the already mentioned 2425 and 2426 compression drivers,...

    Hi,

    the blue 12 µF 'lytic most probably is the bypass capacitor in the woofer's low pass filter. Lift one leg, measure it's capacity and it's ESR and leave it alone if both are in specs. Anyway,...

    Just out of curiosity: Is it possible indeed to swap the 2235H for a 2216H Nd in a 4430? Their TSP's differ significantly, so I suspect there need to be altered many other things (enclosure tuning,...

    Personally, I'd just try to drink some alcohol, put the grilles back (hopefully there are some…) and relax :p. But keep observing the surrounds and refoam the drivers if needed somewhen.

    Hi,

    I'd use the same 2K, epoxy based filler that is common in automotive repair shops. And yes, your horns need to be sprayed in matte black after successfully filling and sanding the dents. There...

    Hi, and congrats to your 4425's!

    I'd treat these dents with filler first, grind with abrasive paper, going from coarse to fine grains, and finally spray new laquer on the biradials.

    Hmm, I never heard of Aquaplas on the back of 2235H cones, nor do the genuine D8R2235 kits that were used to recone my 2225's to 2235H's feature it. Anyhow, it might explain the cone mass difference...
