    Update: The Super 7s are re-capped and back together. And they sound incredible! No soundstage issues that I can detect. They're the kind of speakers that totally satisfy. The "I'm done" speaker as far as I'm concerned.

    The crossover frequencies are 1000, and 6000 hz. As for the mid-freq horns - I'll have to do some critical listening once I get them up and running. My initial audition when I first brought them home was just to make sure all the drivers worked, and in that initial test I discovered one of...

    Gibson Custom, Art & Historic 58

    I bought my '97 R8 for $2700 back in April of 2020. It's not for sale, but If I were to sell it now, I wouldn't take less than $4000. It's the market. It would be foolish to sell it for less than it would cost to replace it.

    FWIW, I've updated my gear. I recently picked up a Soundcraftsmen PE2217-R Equalizer/Preamp for $120. This eq/preamp is similar to the one I had back in the day. It's a great compliment to my MA5002 Power Amp. Also snapped up a pair of Infinity Reference Fives in need of re-foaming for $50...

    What's Your Favorite Speaker Cab

    I used to have a '69 Twin Reverb that had a pair of Altec 417B speakers in it... I don't miss the amp all that much, but damn I wish Ida kept those speakers!

    Back in the early '80s I had a pair of 4 ohm Speaker Lab 7WA speakers hooked up to it. That MA5002 was crankin' out 500 watts per channel... The lights in my house would dim with every bass drum beat. It was life changing...

    I'll probably get laughed out of this post since I don't have a turntable and I don't have records anymore. All my music on either on CD, cassette or iPod. I purchased the Soundcraftsmen MA5002 power amplifier and a matching graphic equalizer pre-amp brand new back in the mid 70's. The pre-amp...

    Where does the tone come from in an electric guitar?

    Video confirms what I've always believed. Just common sense. It's an electric guitar.

    Grounding in a Mojotone Brown Vibroverb

    There is usually a ground wire soldered from one end of the bus to a ground tab on the chassis.

    RIP Howard Dumble

    Damn... I'll be finishing up my Dumble ODS clone tomorrow. When I fire it up, I will most definitely raise a glass and toast the man. RIP Mr, Dumble.

    I have the same set in my '97 R8. They are incredible.

    Heart attack PSA

    My symptoms started 2 weeks prior. Mild chest discomfort that lasted most of the day. My wife urged me to make an appt. to see my doctor, which I did. My doctor and I discussed the symptoms and he did an EKG. Everything looked fine and based on my low cholesterol numbers, normal weight, and...

    Is this a R8?

    That would be a 'no go' for me too.

    Those Slash Piezo LPs had inked SN starting with "SL".
