Jazzman, you could use some AV Risers between those amps (rather that sticks of wood).
Look HERE. Mr. M-500t can fix you up.
It should sound like it isn't there!

Very nice Jazzman53! And welcome to the forum!! It looks like you have almost outgrew your cabinet? That's what happens > because you "will" need more room for "more" stuff! :lol: Great looking speakers too! They say home-build? Did you build those? oh, and is that you in the picture? You need to iron your pants! :lol: :lol: :lol: Just messing with ya! That's what we do around here, or at least, that's what I do. \:D/ Great looking system! Welcome again!

I was going to ask him who shook up the orange soda and opened it in front of him, but I let it pass. :lol:
BTW, the top is open for a Sunfire 400 x 7.

Geeez BillD, you didn't let it pass, you just said it! :lol: :lol: It's called Tie-Die! You should know what that is from your old Hippy days? \:D/
And Yes, good point, more room on the Top for that Sunfire!!

Thanks Bill. I agree......................... ](*,) :lol: :D

I want those speakers. They look great and I'll bet they'd sound really smooth hooked to the 500's.

I had a girlfriend in the sixties that tie-dyed everything. She was a nutcase. We slept on tie-dyed sheets!

Jag,

Yes, I built those electrostats about a year and a half ago. Actually the stat panels are pretty simple and lend themselves to DIY pretty well. If there were a DIY section here I would post pics of the build process... maybe I can post a link for that at least.

thanks,
Charlie

Your speakers look great and I bet sound as good if not better than they look.
Some cool Carver stuff!

Thanks all for the kind comments about my speakers. It was fun building them. I went a bit overboard with the cabinets on my stats (all you really need are some wooden frames) but the stats themselves are relatively easy and inexpensive to build-- really a good value, considering their fidelity.

It still amazes me that you/me/anyone can take a couple of perforated steel plates (even screen wire) and a sheet of plastic and some double-sided foam adhesive tape and build a driver on the kitchen table that can rival any high end commercial product out there.

There's a lot of good info, good folks and experienced ESL builders over at the DIY Audio website if anyone is interested.

I couldn't help myself... it looked so lonely there on Ebay
It's true that I don't have a place for it in my system but it can be a backup in case one of my other amps craps out.

All of you enablers here aren't helping my situation...
