The Repair is done

Well with the help of Dave S THANKS A TON =D> =D> =D> =D>
(there's a care package on it's way to you!)
we have successfully replaced the kapton in the center speaker (a 48" ribbon spare we had)
Here's some pics of before during and after....

The ugly rips that a brat did

laying things out...you can't see him but Dave is on the speaker phone talking us through this \:D/

Image

Very nice Jean. Now all you need to do is to make a matching oak frame for it and get it a few inches off the floor.

Well it's not oak but I think it's the best xams present Gerhard gave me this year!!!!! He hasn't done any wood working since high school (way, way back when..haha..)borrowing a router from a friend he completed this xmas eve.
He wasn't sure about carving up a piece of oak...so this is pine.... had he known it would have turned out so well he would have bought oak in the first place..I think he did such a great job.
I think I'll have to buy a router of his own to do some more projects, say an oak frame and then down the road some rear surrounds :-$ he says uh...perhaps later!!!!

Though to get a stain to match with the different wood and all... plus the silvers wood has aged nicely.. all we need to do now is build a bracket that should be remote controled so we can adjust the pitch.... :-k

Sounds great just tweeking the sound a bit using the sansui but almost thinking I may wait till I get the amp I'll be using on it first, as that will influence what I hear as well, need to build a crossover and add it I'd like to get a little cube amp for it uh perhaps in a couple mo...better wait for the xams master card to get paid off!!!!
Still waiting for the tfm55 to arrive for the left-rights should be here soon can't wait.

You definantly need a x-over, ribbons don't like any signal below 150 hz. You might want an EQ also, though I don't know if the 48" ribbons require notch filters like the 60" do. Let us know how it works out when you get your amps. I've always thought a ribbon would make an excellent center channel speaker.

Richard, I seem to remember reading in some article about the Amazings that there was a notch filter used to smooth out a resonant spike or peak somewhere in the frequency response curve that was built into the corssovers (it was an article about Bob Carver workign with one of the big audio magazines during the development of the Amazings to get them to sound right). I'll look and see if I can track down the article for you.

I'm not even using the AL-III cross overs !
I am running the Rane AC-22 at 200 Hz Mid/High Frequencies.

I am using this as a filter, and I have the marantz pre amp set to small speaker, which rolls off the low end (have to check the manual for the freq cut off can't remember it off hand) but having fun playing with the sound.
This is a notch filter which filters out a real specific range you tune it into rather than a wide amount that a graphic EQ would...I am not a good one to tech explain this to you but in a simple way if you know how a graphic EQ works you'll hopefully understand me?
Say you want to take out 6500 kHz with a graphic EQ you'd be taking 6500kHz as well as other freq around 6500kHz depending on how wide a range it has but with a parametric EQ (like this one) you can see it has fine width's you can chose as spec freq's to remove or add.

Got my Care package today, THANK YOU very much. I will have to wait a few days to let the beer settel out but at 9% I`m sure it will be worth it. It will make a good snack along with the salom.. Sunday morning will be the time for French toast and maple syrup, can`t wait. \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/

Mr. M-500t, the 60" ribons have a spike in their frequency response at 6000hz (I think that's right). The graphic EQ is to tame this spike. The Rane ME-60 has 30 bands that are very narrow so they don't alter adjacent frequencies. The x-over in the Plats has a notch filter built in to control this spike. If I bypass the x-overs, I also bypass the notch filter. That's why I want the graphic EQ. It will also help balance the speaker to the room acoustics and my ears.

FYI: That notch spike is the resonant frequency of the physical "channel" that the ribbon sits in.
