Carverfest workshop?????

Post by bsturgeon89 » Fri Feb 26, 2010 12:09 am

I just thought I would throw this out there and ask and maybe its too much to ask but here it goes.......

If I brought my MarkIVs to the fest, are there any takers that would want to help and show me how to take out the crossovers and install the double-binding post and all that good ol stuff? I guess the rane 22b crossover is the way to go from what I've been told.

Won't hurt my feelings if there aren't any. Just a thought.

I think a workshop is a great idea actually. We could get Bob to teach use a bit of tube amp theory

Sounds like a great idea, Brock! I'm sure Bob would be right in the middle of it~

I'll give you a hand if you like... it's a pretty easy mod.
Make sure you bring all the parts you'll need to add the new terminals.
Have you picked out the parts yet ??

Nope, I hadn't gotten that far yet. I just had the epiphany last night at work. I know everyone says it is a pretty easy mod but I'd like to have a walk through and learn something more in the process about my speakers.

Is the part list for Reece's mod a good place to start?

After we learn some useful things comes the entertainment part of the workshop where we watch someone who doesn't realize his way is not the better way will show us the best way to let the magic smoke out of something is done by simply re-installing the flux capacitor out of phase. :lol: I will not mention the prime candidates for this demo by name at this time, but I don't think I need to do I? #-o

I would reccomend looking into the modd that Eddied is doing... he got a pretty sweet brushed black aluminum plate, and some beefy retminals.
I'll PM him, and get him to add some details here.

Don't waste a good opportunity to shut up!

Good judgment comes from experience, but experience usually comes from bad judgment.

The best thing is to learn from others that have mastered the one thing you need to learn!

I would tell you to go to hell but I already work there and I don't want to see your ugly face every day!

I think we should also have Mr. Carver address this one while he's at it and see how funny it gets :lol:
