    cool

    Those are beautiful! What is a Harlan? Are those 150-4C's ? 5041's?

    Are the speakers in your avatar yours?

    Close But No Cigar !!!!!!!!!

    Hi Steve

    Do a search on the website regarding the "Harlan".

    If you are not familiar with the "Harlan", the search will give you some great info.

    Drivers are dual 150-4,crossovers are N 400 and the horn is a rare H 5042

    And yes the avatar is real (with more)

    Completely AWESOME!!!!!!!

    I got to thinking that the 504"1"= 1" and I've never heard of 5042's, let alone SEEN one ! Some interesting items in the background too, you are a man after my own heart ! Question: I just picked up some 2395's/375's and the horn part looks like a Paragon horn, are they the same size ?

    Thanks Guys

    Steve-Paragon horn was an H5038P.Measures in at 13 and 11/16 wide. by 6 and 1/2 hi.

    Also the H 5041 is a TWO inch driver accepting horn that has mounting supports and was only used in the Metregon.The 5042 has no supports and was used in C35,C37,C39 and C40.

    MikeBake - The item with the grill is a customers MR822 awaiting a replacement handle.I am listening to Christmas music from Minigon mountain on the fridge as I type.

    I"ll post final pics when finished.

    Minigons? oui.

    missed grabbing a local pair (a bit banged up & questionable driver complement)

    but this link has some useful info (perhaps repeated elsewhere):

    http://membres.lycos.fr/minigon/

    a further link to 'microgons' is down further on the page.

    (for those with mini-facsimile fetishes... an earlier thread iirc).

    Cheers,

    Fine and fun, of course, but I never came up with a reasonable application for Minigon due to configuration. Stacked doesn't seem compatible with the design intent.

    Wide-screen flat panel TV presents new opportunities, however. Build a sub to match the pair and stack: sub, Minigon, screen. Theater!

    Mine don't have the handsome wood slats, alas. Might could fab those, though. Hmmmmm....

    Not The H5041

    Drivers are dual 150-4,crossovers are N 400 and the horn is a rare H 5042


    The H 5041 is a TWO inch driver accepting horn that has mounting supports and was only used in the Metregon.

    The H5042 has no supports and was used in C35,C37,C39 and C40.

    These are the only pair of H5042 that I have ever seen.Grabbed them from some old trashed out Harkness (C40) enclosures.I did hear that Jammin Jersey had just one of the H5042 horns years ago.
