    What's with the flippin' reptile in front of the Everest and K2?

    Maybe Guido needs a special audiophile Croc accessory to "proportion the sound with its multi-faceted, naturally random diffusive properties."
    Out.

    Done

    Yesterday I finished my Everest 2 clone
    It took me almost a day to assemble the missing MF (476Be) crossovers. I had non CC'ed evaluation boards till now as I modified the schematic a bit.
    Oh and I left the bipolar elkos out of the midrange crossover.
    Caps are "normal" Mundorf PP's and some zinc foil here and there.

    You can read it a hundred times at this forum but I'll write it again:

    CC your crossovers.

    The EV 2 clones really started to sing when I had the crossovers ready. And the boards are still not played in !!

    Listening time

    There have been a few people who have expressed their opinion that biasing loudspeaker crossover networks is bogus. But then I found out what those people were using for back ends...

    A line has to be drawn somewhere and this doesn't qualify as a proper back end for evaluating biased versus non-biased filters folks:

    I guess if one could just plug the networks in to the wall socket for a bias voltage .... one would hear the difference then.


    I bet Guido doesn't do a full 8 hour shift today !

    He wont give it to you.
    I asked him awhile ago and was very reluctant to give any information. That's why I turned to the 4355...
    He may change his mind but I doubt it!

    Would you blame somebody who worked hard for two years reproducing a cabinet to give away the technical drawings?

    I am sure the cabinet maker can be traced, then a request for a second set might be possible. Shipping from Germany might be very expensive though.

    Then, it might still be possible to buy the original JBL cabinets in unfinished conditiion as auctionned last year in Denmark (or was it Sweden or Finland?).

    I don't at all Lee! It's just the way he said it that was not very friendly!

    Hi canadexco,

    A lot of info can be find here on the Forum that can help you to make the main box, some of the forum members have offered to make compatible 66k horns, but the greatest problem, from my point of view, would be to get the original drivers, so I would suggest first to get the drivers, then the rest would be much easier.

    regards

    Any good cabinetmaker will be able to work from these pics. He will probably need to have the mid horn components on hand to confirm the shape of the front flare. A couple of mm out there will stick out like a sore thumb.
    If you do a Google image search for ' DD66000 cabinet ' there are dozens of pics of the real thing with cutaway's etc.
