Hey guys...we need a little rallying here... - Page 244

post #7291 of 9844
Can you give us an idea of what stuff is left over that needs a home/ needs to be bought? And which horns are the ones with scratches?

And I am also excited to hear more about these SEOS24's.
post #7292 of 9844
I'm not too concerned about the horns that were ordered on past pallets and not paid for. Eventually I'll figure out something to do with them. I was just explaining why we need to change things on future group buys like this so they worked out better in the end. Basically, it's a learning experience.


There are other issues that I will have to discuss later. Nothing to do with the SEOS-24.
post #7293 of 9844
Oh ok. Well I just wanted to help if I could. And glad the 24's are still scheduled like normal so to speak. Anxious to see pictures......smile.gif

Wow, Erich. That is expensive.

Seems to me like an opportunity to discuss purchasing molds and producing the most popular horns and waveguides here in the USA. Is that a possibility? There are also many people here that can generate those profiles which could potentially be another exciting DIY effort from this group, imo.

Things are being worked on with that......


This pallet might still work okay because there were more items added during the final week, so the larger number of horns will divide out better with the higher priced shipping. I'm pretty sure there were over 60 pieces on this pallet. So there's a chance it will all divide out okay.

Very nice. I've got a Le Cleac'h project in the wings, so please let me know the details as this progresses.

Ya, there is a greater number of larger horn and waveguides on the pallet, it should work out. But still, dang!

I hope Chops 24's didn't annihilate my tiny AT1's lol. Actually they are probably "in" one of Chops wg's. tongue.gif

I've never been to that site before. Do they just randomly pick things off the world wide webz?
post #7301 of 9844
Its user based, submissions have to be reviewed though I think.......

Still cool to see some DIYSG speaker stuff on my other travels!

Cool site for interesting man stuff.
post #7302 of 9844
Once this spring is over, things will really get interesting. I've hired an extra guy to take some of my landscaping hours away and free up more time for audio stuff. Then I can actually get the site completed.
post #7303 of 9844
Erich, I got my package yesterday. Outstanding packing and service as always, I actually was equally excited for what was IN the box as I was to see the packing you employed since I had a random assortment of stuff. Once again you didn't disappoint! I owe you some bucks for shipping, can you PM me the amount?

Also, you went above and beyond on the baffles. Unexpected but highly appreciated.
post #7304 of 9844
If there are any rejected or in spoken for SEOS 15's or 18's ill take 'em!

Freight companies have a lot of power right now since there is such a shortage of qualified operators and capacity overall. They can pretty much charge what they want.
post #7305 of 9844

Hey Erich, you PM'd me a while ago about helping you with some stuff and I have not heard from you again. I know you have a lot going on but if you can find the time to respond to my last PM I would appreciate it!

 

Thank you,

 

Brent

Will there be flat packs for Jeff's dual woofer center channel? I might actually consider using them as surround if there will be
post #7307 of 9844
I got my kits and I'm definitely lost.
I'm wondering why does everyone use bondo on the edges?
Can anything else be used?
is it really needed or is it just cosmetic?
post #7308 of 9844
You don't need to use bondo. Just sand it down with a sander and it should be pretty darn smooth. If you're using Duratex paint, there's no other step needed. If you're doing something else for a really smooth finish, you can fill in any glue lines or seams with the bondo, epoxy, wood filler, spackling, etc.

Pallet Update:

It's suppose to rain tomorrow so I went out to Kentucky to pick up the pallet today. Normally I just take my pick up truck for the pallet. But my dump truck was still warmed up, so I figured I would just take that. It's a good thing I did because this pallet is bigger than the other 3 I got in the past. I don't think it would have fit in my truck bed. That explains the extra $1200. But it's still not a justifiable increase for the extra pallet size.

This pallet is roughly 50" x 63". That's a good sized pallet, but not 50% bigger to justify a 50% increase in shipping prices. Not much we can do about that now.

I will say that it's packaged good with no signs of damage. That's always a huge relief because I'm stuck with any problem pieces.....which is why it worries me.

Anyway, the SEOS-24 is an absolute beast. I'll try to get a photo up in a little bit. I need to check the camera batteries to see if I've got enough juice left.

That's because I haven't shipped them yet. wink.gif I am behind on emails because of the time of year. It's normally 7:30 am - 7:00 pm or so work days for about a month until things settle in. Luckily I have interwebz access at the shop now....because that's where I am after work.


Photos coming.

SEOS-24 next to SEOS-12:





Another photo to gauge the scale:

post #7313 of 9844
Wow
post #7314 of 9844
SEOS-24 over the top of the Karma-15. That's a 15" woofer of course.

post #7315 of 9844
OMG eek.gif

i got out my SEOS 12 to try and gauge the size of that monster. Neither pic does it justice. you have a pop errr uh, soda can you can put next to it?

edit: you were posting that as i was typing. yeah. thats better lol
post #7316 of 9844
The 12 looks like a toy in comparison.
post #7317 of 9844
Now I am trying to decide if my first house really does need appliances. ... I will be getting a set of those 24" SEOS eventually.
post #7318 of 9844
i really need to move to a bigger house
post #7319 of 9844
Wow it looks amazing.
post #7320 of 9844
That waveguide must belong to a monster of a speaker! Is there any more information available on it?
