Re: I saw some Carver items others might want-

67ih4x4x4 - that had to be the same guy. not just the crossovers, but the plates, etc, right? I think his wife's name was Caroline? They seemed nice people.

So, what kind of shape did they arrive in?

I saw some Carver items others might want-

I spend far too much time on the internet. Getting old, and don't have energy for much else i guess. Also have no idea whether or not if this is "the proper forum" to post this . _ Hopefully this site isn't as full of it's self on such things as other sites I've encountered. I won't say which site, ...

Re: I hate to ask....AGAIN but...Woofer surrounds??

Specs. are simple enough. measure the inner surround diameter - the cone outer edge - the surround outer diameter, then specify the foam be light weight compared to conventional surrounds and remember the inner edge needs to be angled, not flat. IIRC, per the famous Doug Purl, the surrounds were pre...

I hate to ask....AGAIN but...Woofer surrounds??

It's over 2 years since I asked, so thought I'd throw it out there once again - Has ANY progress been made on obtaining suitable surrounds for the carver Silver/Platinum woofers? Yes, I know about the Dynavox option, if that is still even availble, but surrounds would be much much cheaper and are ea...

Re: Excellent !!- Carver AL-3 Plus, in black

These are gone. I'd delete the ad, but have no idea how to do that, or even if it's possible?
In any case - SOLD, GONE, and the new owner seems quite happy with them.

Thanks for the interest, and the venue!

Thanks for the dime treitz3. It wasn't an issue, but I do appreciate it! Maybe those of us who prefer the dark are some throw back to nocturnal hunters? Sorta the alley cats of our species!

Re: Useless Insomniatic Ramblings

"stuffing envelopes for eBay logos" - speaking about those Logo's... Toymaker, how are they coming? I paid for 2 sets via eBay/Paypal and haven't received any yet and it's been a while... I sent a few emails too... Not pushing, I'm sure it's not a high priority. Just wanted some idea because I had a...

replacement AL-III foam grill

I have a good supply of the acoustic foam for making new AL-III grills. This stuff is 97% open, which is quite a bit better then the original, and you can hear it in the extreme highs. If anyone wants me to cut them a pair, I'll do so. it will be MUCH cheaper then what is available on the auction si...

Re: al3 woofer theile small specs

Too bad we don't have a member with Woofer tester to run these ourselves. The single most important spec. to me that is close on both sets of data, is the sensitivity figure. 90 to 91 db and with the extra umph of floor/room coupling is just too high for these panels. When I had the AL-III, not the ...

Re: carver logo

Hey Mr. Toy - I used the eBay links. I ordered the GOLD originally, then just ordered the Silver, because in retrospect, I do think they'd look better on the Black AL-III's. I should have saved you the postage and ordered both at the same time. Unless they haven't gone out yet? If that were the case...

Re: Need help from those that received drivers from Dynavox

I'd go with the offer to rebuild yours, from their parts. Thar's as close to a real drop-in replacement as you are going to find!

Early EARLY Carver VU meter, for PL400, PL700??

Fat chance, BUT anyone have one of these Phase Linear 400 VU meters laying around, maybe in a non working old clunker?
I THINK the ones in the 700, and 700 Bs work too.

Yes, like the Alpine. I think the Alpine uses the LAT500 though.

Re: Carver AL-III idea, and..

Not all all. These things are unlike anything you've seen before. Google search them - "Tymphany LAT-700", also look at images. There is also a youTube video on them. What makes them suitable for the AL-II is the narrow width, meaning that a few minutes with a reciprocating saw, combined with a lot ...
