Re: Miracles actually can happen

Yeah, I liked it too.. But it's too small.

The feet are going to have to be bigger than the ones originally designed.
Bob said to make it lean 20-degrees before it would tip over.

I honestly think it will be so hard to tip these over, due to the fact that they weight 120 lb each.
So not only do you have to push them over, you have to LIFT the full 120 pounds as you tip it...
The feet being bigger than the extrusion, you'll have to lift it off the ground on 2 feet as you tip it.

There will be a few tests run to see just how small I can make it, and still have it stable.
Whatever you do in life will be insignificant, but it's very important that you do it 'cause nobody else will

SHUT UP AND ENJOY THE MUSIC!

OUCH - 120 pounds! Actually now that I think about it can you make feet with wheels??? :lol: Maybe they need a anti-gravity kinda thing like the speeders on Star Wars that can hover :rolleyes:

Safety will be a issue then and "I" do have a idea that would be cool but I would need to draw it and pm you it when done! :-k

Re: Miracles actually can happen

I would say there is more weight with passengers then the drivers! LOL! Sorry Roy!
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 assume the taller array design and not the single ribbon design with the spider feet? How tall on the array? Could you also do the smaller ones? Will monkeys fly out my ass??? :-s
In reality, it only matters what it sounds like to YOU!!!

If I remember correctly, the target range was about $7k.

Just an update...

The target range has increased since "things" happened. Also, the final plans have not been completed....nor has the tube x-over.
In search of accurate reproduction of music. Real sound is my reference and while perfection may not be attainable? If I chase it, I might just catch excellence.

The best way to enjoy digital music reproduction is to never listen to a good analogue reproduction.

Oh, that's not all.......

:-#

Yes, and there will also be a surprise in store for any owner that purchases them. A kind of off the hook surprise and completely awesome but you are not getting one word out of me until folks at Carverfest actually see them for the first time. Nope, don't try it....my lips [and keyboard] are sealed.

Looks like we'll have some new speakers in time for CarverFest after all.
They may not be a final production set, but they will be "on display" a the very least.

Gentleman requesting observations....

I just spotted this over at another forum. Since I have not heard the final product since the unofficial debut at Carverfest, I thought I might give those who have actually heard it in all it's glory chime in and answer the question for this gentleman.
