    SAM1HF Clones

    I have been working on these on and off since the summer. I finally have the cabinets built and a pair loaded for measurements for both AL and Be versions. The "Plan" is to use them as tops in a 1400 Array set-up. I hope to get my UBM "Universal Bass Modules" cut up and together this week. Can't wait to power them up and have a listen. That's going to have to wait though as I don't have the networks built up. As always half the fun is in the doing.

    How does that remote work with that old drill? I've never seen such a fusion of old and new tech!

    Oh yeah, the cabs look very good, too.

    With what? Is that a PS-200 and PS-400 I see in the rack?

    I learned how to drill with that drill, he would give me a 1/4 drill bit and chuck of 2x4 to practice with.

    I have a couple of them. 2 from my father and a real beauty from my wifes grandfather. He was a ship builder and it's a work of art. The most versatile and biggest hand drill I have seen. I like to use them for pilot holes and counter sinks. More control than an electric if you don't own a drill press.

    Is that a PS-200 and PS-400 I see in the rack?
    Yes that's my 2 channel Bi amp rig. Will go with the PS-400 on the first power up.

    They look very nice!
    Thanks and they sure are fun to build.

    It's been too cold to cut any wood outside so I have the networks going instead. With any luck I will be able to power them up by the end of the week. I decided to just go for the Be driver load as they 2435Be looked good in the simulations. I really wanted to have the 1400 bass modules done but as long as the weather stays like this I am just going to have to wait. In the mean time I have a pair of 121A's I can use to see how they sound.

    Finally got my first SAMHF running for some preliminary measurements. Working on the second crossover tonight. So far so good.

    The photos of your crossover don't seem to be loading.

    Been enjoying the balmy 40 degree temperatures Went for a drive really nice day here. Finally have the passives working and the levels set-up. I am still going to have to trim them a bit once I get the woofers boxes up and running. The tweeter looks hot but when you back up the measurement to about 2 meters it drops right into line. Have not had a chance to listen too them yet. Had one running and it sounded really nice on some Steely Dan and Donald Fagen.

    Here is what my work table looked like now it's as messy as the crossover hook-up.

    Well Grumpy these things are just great! Best sounding system I have ever had the pleasure to listen too in my home. They just sound right no matter what you throw at them. I have been looking for stuff to play just to hear what it sounds like on them.

    This is what makes it all worthwhile. I am really glad to see someone build a personal project and thoroughly enjoy the outcome. Several people on the forum know what a nightmare it was to aquire the various parts but this makes it well worth the effort.

    Great job Rob!
