    There is usually a ton of free space on the back of the cabinet. Make the ports square and you dont have the worry of trying to find tube of the right diameter.

    In either case i would recommend to keep both ends of the port flared.

    I agree. I used a flared port on my B380 and get no port noise at all from it even when it cranking. They come in several sizes. Here's a link to the 6". I used the 4" in B380 and my UBM boxes

    I snipped this picture off of a "Eldorado Bumper Cars" google search. Title from Pintrest states " Coney Island hoping for rebound after Sandy". Assuming these are the Widget Cabinets, it's good to see they are still there, sad to see they are empty.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    All those Crown amps should be driving something?

    It's a story dated 12/27/2015 about DJ Nicky Siano's upcoming New Year's Eve party that was to be held at Eldorado Bumper Cars with the little autos sidelined and the track used as a dance floor. Scott Fitlin is mentioned. Richard Long is given credit for the sound system, though readers of these forums know it was many times upgraded by Scott. No details are given. No mention of the Widget Works. It's a retrospective about the disco era. Scott's system was apparently known throughout the disco world at the time and, also apparently, is a rare survivor (complete or not).

    The Eldorado...
    Been missing Scott since 2010...

    It was fun seeing glimpses of the Eldorado in several episodes of Mr. Robot. Never saw any views that caught any of the rather massive speakers.

    I don't remember how heavy those subs were, but even without the drivers they were stupid heavy. We used a forklift to load them up into the truck that took them back east.

    I did visited Eldorado in 2007 on my breakfast in America trip and heard the system. I remember getting the train down from NY City.

    Scotty was right into it and very passionate about his audio system. At the time l think the system had some TAD drivers in it such the 1603 woofers. I know it had a Urei active crossover which we talked about while l was there. If l recall correctly we both set out evaluating some PSS power amps from France around that time. The deal on trial product went ape shit on Scotty for some reason which caused quite a stir with the designer.

    It’s was the next big controversy after project May and Zilch’s enormous Curve thread. Of course The Event was Giskard’s monumental meltdown which nearly saw the end of the LHS website. It was not a case of if he was going to snap. It was when. Greg hasn’t heard from him in a long time.

    They were the days!
