    I have the three drivers you mention but not all in the same cabinet. I don't think there's much -if any- overlap between the usable frequency ranges of the 2405 and the 128H, so you'll need at...

    Ok, you asked for it.

    You start off considering this screaming deal for 4312d's - two pair, even - and want to dump your S4700s because they represent a bunch of money tied up in a...

    Great find!

    Someone with a lot more wood and veneer know-how should chime in soon. Just don't be in a hurry to try any old solvent.

    The sound is one important factor, but lots of other things add to the escalating prices these vintage speakers fetch. I'll touch on one.

    inverse Bang for the Buck

    Most people have a sense of time and money and how much of each is too much to spend in pursuit of a deal. But when I'm on vacation, different math applies - a case of "I can't get this at home."

    Forgive my naivete, but how close are those drivers to being drop-in replacements for the 2234H or 2235H? I've not found much information on them yet.

    I did this very measurement some time ago on several amps. My Class A Decware rated at 6W/channel sucks an even 90W from the wall, for an input/output ratio of 7.5x in my case.
