Well let see if I look at the time spent vs. the information given in my post and your messages I believe I owe you a kidney. Although I can't say it will be in great shape. Still better than the liver.

I don't need a kidney at this moment. Any chance we can barter for something else? Maybe like a sleeve of Pro V1x golf balls or something? I think they are worth about the same.

Looks like some equipment racks. Some pro lighting, EQs, etc... This is Pratt AV, right? Did they go under?

Anyway, some good deals are likely to be found this Friday...

I love my iPhone, but it will never replace my turntable.

Dibs on one of the overhead projectors!!!!

Those equipment racks could be a good find for someone looking for a good AV rack. I wonder what they have for amps... Could be useful for a second zone.

True, but there is another post selling off most of the office furniture as well, and Pratt has never really had "new inventory"...

Looks like a big St. Louis company bought Pratt last year...

My guess is they're consolidating and re-structuring. Office remodel and/or move, clearing out all the old gear and realigning the Des Moines location better with the overall corporate mission/structure, which looks to be more focused on integration than event production.

I'll be coming to Mr. Beck's grand opening on Saturday. If anyone is looking for a great deal on a sub, I am selling a HSU VTF3-MK3 for $400. Condition is a 9/10. If interested let me know via PM.

I'm trying to decide if this would be a fun sale or a waste of my time . . .

Hey, Iowa guys…

Shameless for-sale post, here...

I have a set of three Elemental Designs cabinets I bought last winter to build some high-efficiency mains without having to build cabinets. I paid $150 for all three, but I'd sell them to somebody here for like… $60. The only catch is you have to come get them by this weekend. They're really nice. So nice, you could work in the garage for two weekends straight and not make cabinets this nice. Well, maybe IgnoringMyWife or Deewan could, but certainly not me. They're not the "truck bed liner" material; they're a nice semi-gloss enamel black. Very nice and in excellent condition.

I have all the model numbers on drivers in an email, and you can order everything from Parts Express. They used an Eminence 6.5-inch mid-bass driver, and an Eminence compression driver with "butt-cheek" waveguide. All you'll need is the drivers, some stuffing, a crossover, and a terminal cup. I think they were rated at 93dB efficiency, so you can drive these to reference sound pressure levels with AVR power. They aren't JTR's or anything, but they would be a HUGE upgrade if you're still using small bookshelf-type speakers with silk-dome tweeters.

Below is some info I found searching around - I think on AVS - that eD posted back when they were just getting ready to release them.

Let me know if you have any questions.

I'll fill you all in later, but for now let's just say I'm purging to lighten our load.

Cheers!

SC

I do not, but my neighbor friend is an avid speaker builder and had plugged the cabinet volume and port specs into a piece of loudspeaker design software he uses, along with the driver models, and it gave a pretty standard crossover config. It's apparently a pretty simple affair, but I never got that far before I got crazy busy this spring.

He also bought two of the same cabinets. He was going to try some different drivers, and I was going to try the original spec drivers. If you're interested, I'll connect you two. He's a good guy. He's done a lot of scratch building and designing, including crossovers, from big live sound monitors to tiny line arrays, to more traditional MTM designs, to big subs. His house is probably 75 yards from mine, and some nights I can hear him testing his designs - in his living room with no windows open.

Cheers,
SC
