A Baby Huey EL84 push pull drives 2 in series 12'' midbasses, Altec (Great Plains) driver on Le Cleac'h wide band horn (Azurahorn) and a Fostex bullet TW, all those with passive cross and no low cut, when an active analogue crossover handles the 280lt Lambda 15'' subs powered by a McCormack DNA amp.
I had designed the passive crossover originally with measurements he had .
Did you get any fotos of the simplistic... build details ?

George had shown it before so I did not open it up to photo again. Maybe he has a couple saved to remind by posting again if he will may.

Here a recent picture of the internals of the riaa.
PS is on a separate box with double R-core transformers and C L filter.

Care should be taken as to their mounting on the chassis (use some form of damping), in order to avoid feedback from the music, especially with globe tubes.
That's what I expected and I'd use as well.
Another question regarding flicker noise. Any problems here? I had my problems with this issue using some WE 205D (Shugang clones) as preamplifier tubes...

No, I do not have any problems. Salas also listened to my system, and did not hear anything unusual.
Keep in mind I use a LL1660 4.5:1 at the output, which I think is essential to keep output impedance low enough.
I had some noisy tubes, but that is to be expected as most of them are used.

George congrats nice system, if you want send me a pm with your address so I will send you a couple of FT-3 0,1uF for your interestage coupling capacitors, I see you have mixed Kiwame with Shinkoh & Takman is for the sound in the position used? what mains filter cap are you using? in the separate psu box are you using also 10.000uF, wich value are you using for L?

Thank you for your offer Felipe, I already have some FT-3 capacitors.
Here I use K72P-6 0.047uF for interstage, which replaced the FT-3 I had before. They are covered with a grounded cooper foil.
Regarding resistros, I use kiwame in the power supply and shinkoh in the signal route. Takman 1M resistors.
Last filter caps are 2 x 22000uf mundorf.
In the PS box I use 2 x 4700uf and 2 x 10h choke.
Coupling cap is 3,3uf silver foil mundorf.
