It's been a long time coming and they are nearly here.

Looking back at all the gear hoarding and then building...

So what does this thread mean? Well for one, it means for real this time. The build thread will come very soon. Maybe in a coming days or weeks. Possibly sooner. Maybe some time this week. Maybe tomorrow! tongue.gif



If you have any general questions or comments about these new mains and new subwoofers you can leave them here. I am thinking of making a small FAQ for the full thread so your comments and questions could be useful for shaping that up. Also if I have bought something from you that I am using in this go ahead and let me know. I've been piecing this together for a few years so I don't want to forget anybody. redface.gif

Thanks and enjoy!

HOLY SHTTTTTT!!!!!
Scott, I'm really excited to see how things turn out! I followed your LLT build way back when and you've hinted here and there about what was to come, but now it's getting real! Nice job staying patient and working it out as you could. You've said before how much time it can take you to save and collect, kudos for working steady! biggrin.gif

Ya, what eminence woofer is that? What kind of enclosure is it in? And is it hooked up to that mid horn somehow? Tell us about that.

Cool!

post #15 of 201
Scott you have somewhere between 26 to 28kW there, if I counted it correctly.
Big-Iron Class-A/B/H too, so it likely does a solid 18kW RMS, with another 10kW burst power in the capacitors from an idle-start.

post #16 of 201
NO WAY!!!!

Must be someone else's house!!!!

Just called my shrink cause not sure if I saw correct!

Congrats and can't wait to hear about your upgrade once this is all done tongue.gif

Your system will be the reference for the motto "Nothing exceeds like excess!" biggrin.gif

Was wanting to know this also. Was getting ready to try and build a horn loaded Beta8a in a 90hz horn.

The mid horn looks to be one of Wayne Parham's flatpacks.

If you zoom into the picture you can see that is an Eminence Delta 10A
post #27 of 201
congratulations scott.

yours has been no small undertaking. i'm glad to see your vision being transformed into reality.

this one is definitely...FOR REALZ! :-)
post #28 of 201
I thought it might be the delta 10a.

I really like that all the 2226s get their own box. Nice touch wink.gif

Yep! It's a triple set of Wayne's midhorn system. He uses them in cornerhorn speakers and sells the midhorn as a flatpack. Very cool component and one that I think should get more attention. The driver is indeed the Eminence Delta10a.
