Don't recall if the GainClone was hooked up at this time or not.
Hi Dave,

From your picture it looks like Rene's Class A, Push-Pull amp is driving them. As usual, Rene' turned out another superb amp for everyone's enjoyment, although there's another builder out there finishing up "his" masterpiece.


It was a pretty good meet and people certainly had the opportunity to try out different combinations of gear.

Best Regards,
Terry

Cal,
Just cut that out, you're viewing them with the look of love in your "mind's eye".

The AV8 is only 8 inches across. The cabinet is tuned to 33-34 Hz and as far as we could measure them at DaveR's place, they seem to be about that in-room. With the right music, they have a pretty fair amount of impact on the bottom end.

Best Regards,
Terry

Terry my friend, I must bow. It's tough for one man to say to another but I believe your 8 incher is bigger than mine. I think you are being modest.

Bring out the tape!

I don't have them in front of me, but if I recall, the mounting flange of the AV8 was a little larger than most speakers. The overall diameter might be closer to 8.5", which might give the impression being a larger woofer.

Of course, TerryO will need to provide the facts and data.

What's the hurry?

In fact, someone at the meet this last weekend even mentioned covering up my beautiful Bond...er, APTS* finish, with some sort of wood-like stuff from Koala Bear trees.

*APTS: Activated Polyester Tone Sauce

Best Regards,
Terry
